目前分類:LLM, JD同好會 (22)

瀏覽方式: 標題列表 簡短摘要
二月與三月,是許多國外學校申請者,心跳加速的時刻,因為申請結果多在這個時候揭曉。上國外LLM申請(註:LLM就是法學碩士)的討論版,一片烽煙,每個人都焦急地問:Chicago出來了沒?Columbia出來了沒?Harvard出來了沒?...以下各校,依此類推。得獎的人興高采烈,敗北的人也不在少數,當然還有一類叫做「wait list」,或稱「standby group」,亦即候補,候補獎得主,還有一段漫長的等待。

愈近大獎公佈時期,「anxious」一字,或同義字,出現得愈多,更多人在版上分享焦慮病症:譬如每早第一件事,就是開電腦,查電郵,或者每每聽到電鈴就心驚膽戰。版友們互相探詢,那命運的通知,究竟是以email送來?抑或以信件寄出?一旦UPS捧著大型黃色包裹出現,你就知道,老天實在待你不薄,興奮地想要跳起:「阿母,我有了」!

看著版上鬧烘烘一片,我突然有種疏離的感覺。也許是因為已經拿到UPenn的admission,所以他校有或沒有,我反而比較能夠看淡。此時證明自己能力的好強心,已經勝過是否有學校念的焦慮了。所以,當哥倫比亞以三句話輕描淡寫地回絕我時,心裡的「惆悵」大於「失落」:究竟我還時沒到那個水準啊...。另一個想法則是,少了這個「哥倫比亞獎」,那麼我跟張小貓同在一地的選擇也減少了。

I've just finished the BU Law School interview, and I did hope it's the last one.
The first was from Northwetern and more formal than BU.
NW asked me questions according to my CV, the questions were mostly directed to my working experiences and volunteer works. They even asked me about my opinions for capital punishment....

Frankly speaking, I was nervous when I interviewd with NW, 'cause......I mistook the schedule!! I thought they would call me on 24th Jan, nevertheless the correct date was 23th . Well, It was a relieve that I did prepare in advance.
