I’m not going to do this for every school, just because it would be embarrassing for everyone involved, but I didn’t get into Seattle. I got into Hopkins…but not Seattle. Hopkins!…but not Seattle. For the sake of full disclosure, I sort of wondered if I hadn’t heard from them about interviewing because they were just going to accept me (yes, I’m a jerk, but Hopkins. C’mon!). It would have been hard to turn down the super fancy school, but I thought that if they gave me money, and wooed me, I could be persuaded. Maybe. Honestly, probably not, but I’ve never been to Seattle, and it would have been a good excuse to visit and check it out. But…I didn’t get in. This is why I am so confused and insecure about the whole Hopkins thing- how did I get in there, when I didn’t get into Seattle. It makes me feel a little like a fraud. Like Hopkins will suddenly see whatever Seattle saw that led them to reject me, and the gig will be up. It’s just weird otherwise, I’m not even sad about the rejection, just…puzzled.
