I received an e-mail the day before yesterday notifying that I am admitted to the EMBA program I mentioned previously. The program starts in May and I have to do a lot of preparation before that.

Yesterday, I replied to the offer letter from the faculty by e-mail and by snail mail after that, and went to the bank to have my balance statement made in English for the I-20 form and eventually F-1 Student Visa by the U.S. Government.

I haven't talked to my superior about my enrollment since I was not admitted yet. I am really unsure whether they would approve of my study when I tell them even if I only have to take time off from work to attend the 6 sessions 2 weeks each during 15 month period of the program... I might have to quit my current job although I have to fund the extremely expensive tuition.

Still, I'm optimistic despite the situation and looking forward to attending the classes.


  1. Congratulations! I just know that it will be a fulfilling experience.

  2. Congratulations!!! It's a great accomplishment! I'm very happy for you!

  3. Positive thinking is the key. *thumbs up*
