Well today after six months of talking to schools, taking the GRE, gathering my recommendations, and transcripts I finally finished and mailed off my application to graduate school.
After all this time it seems almost like completing a final. My biggest two projects (other than the GRE) was my writing sample and statement of purpose. My prof/advisor for American History and I went back and forth on both a few times. In the end I think I sent in two solid documents but I guess we will see.
