Hello again, beloved readers!
It's that time of the year again -- you know, when seniors get acceptance/rejection letters for grants, scholarships, school, etc.! Wellll ... I just got my first acceptance letter, and guess what for!!! (Pardon me for being more excited than perhaps necessary. But this is THE BEST NEWS EVER!!!)... I got into my top-choice school for a PhD in Arabic/Islamic Studies!!!!!!!!!! I KNOW! HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THAT!! Ahhh ... God, I am so relieved! I'd been freaking out this last month that I hadn't heard back from anyone yet, because my own university selected its PhD candidates for Islamic/Religious Studies over a month ago. So I was really worried.
And, yeah, I don't have a Master's. It's definitely possible to get accepted to PhD programs without a Master's. And, no, you don't have to be beyond exceptional to get in 'cause I'm certainly not. Now I can officially claim to give advice for these kindsa things, no? :D
k, thanks for listening :D
As we say in Arabic, ahamdulillah, alhamdulillah, ALHAMDULILLAH!!! (Praise be to God) Eeeeeeeee!!!!
