It's been difficult to keep this big news from so many people, including my readers.
But I can finally share that…I'm going to grad school!
If you've been reading my blog, you know that going to grad school was the next step in "my post grad plan." I really wanted to go to Georgia Tech (where I did my undergrad) for many reasons, but mainly because of the awesome Public Policy program and the work opportunities I'd have while doing the program.
I took the GRE once and applied to just one school. It was a big risk and a leap of faith, and I'm really happy and grateful that it all worked out. Getting into grad school was much less stressful for me than getting into college for my undergrad.
I told you about a tough decision I was making a few weeks ago. I had to choose between going to grad school and getting a variety of new work experiences while also working on some of my entrepreneurial projects or taking an awesome full time offer in the political field (and I love politics!). It was difficult, but I'm really happy and pleased with my decision and I appreciate everyone who has been there for me while I dealt with these post-grad issues!
I'll finish up my fellowship at the Capitol in mid-December and start grad school in mid-January. I can't wait to be a student again, learn more about communications and policy, have flexible hours, and really have time to work on some projects I have planned that I think you'll love.
This is definitely a dream come true and the next chapter in my life story.
Oh, and I'll truly be a Real College Student of Atlanta again ;)
Have you ever thought about grad school? If so, for what?
