I got selected, applied the day it opened. They have those rolling admissions; I think they may reserve some people for later so that if a really competitive candidate applies on the last day, they still have spots.
But I'm not entirely sure.
I tell my students all day long to ignore people who are trying to stir up drama. I might add they are children in an urban environment overcoming adversity while learning English as a second language. Love these kids to pieces! Rise above, friends! [emoji173]️
