So, to start things off, I’m currently working on my graduate school applications to four different universities, namely: University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Rochester, Colorado State University and Michigan State University (in no order of preferences). My application to Rochester was already submitted (I applied for the October 15th deadline), and I have just recently submitted my application to Michigan State University (last weekend). I am currently working on my statements for CSU and Madison and should be submitting them before my Thanksgiving break (end of November).

For all four universities, I’m applying to their Student Affairs program (they have different variations of the program, but essentially they’re all related to Student Affairs), with an additional Human Ecology program at UW-Madison.
