Good luck and happy acceptances! Or, keep your fingers crossed for a non-Dec 1st acceptance.
**Non Dental readers: Dec 1st is largely termed D-Day because this is the first day that any dental school can notify its applicants whether they were accepted. Needless to say, this is a date filled with anxiety, hope, fear, laughter and tears!
"‘Twas the night before D-Day.
I sat alone in my house,
With my hand hovering over the computer mouse.
I’d been refreshing for three hours, but I didn’t care,
Because I knew midnight would soon be here.
All of my friends are surely in bed,
With nightmares of finals running through their heads.
But finals are the furthest thing from my mind,
As I refreshed and refreshed, hoping an “Accepted” would be what I’d find.
The mailman is sick, with this I can’t cope!
I lost my phone charger, so AADSAS is my only hope!!
Refreshing and refreshing, awaiting a change,
When, I finally noticed something strange.
“Check back on Dec. 1st?” was what I was reading!
Surely this has to have some other meaning!!
Could this be like the blanks of last year?
Oh, I wish midnight were already here!
It’s been three months since my last interview.
For the decisions, I’ve been waiting. If you only knew!
The uncertainty is unbearable.
This anticipation is incomparable.
To think in mere minutes the wait could end,
Makes my weary mind bend.
Years of hard work have led to this night,
And the possibilities set me affright!
And here it is, already 12:01!
And the status updates? NONE!
Don’t these Adcoms know how I’m feeling?
For how long my head has been reeling?!
All of these emotions have worn me out!
My friends don’t know what all the fuss is about.
It’s only the most important day of my life, I reason.
An acceptance would perfect this holiday season!
But 5 minutes later, no update yet.
Oh, I give up! I’M GOING TO BED!!"
