And Now We Wait

Finding out whether you have gotten in or not is one of the most nerve-wrecking events that I have ever been through.  I checked my UCI portal everyday to see if I was accepted or not.  There's nothing I can say that will make the waiting easier, just keep checking your portal (and your anxiety levels as well).
