After the Statement of Purpose

My Statement of Purpose for Admission to Grad School is the most visited blog I've posted. It may be because people search for this as a term in Google's Search box. It may be because people actually want to read mine. Whatever the case, it is.

I got an e-mail from the supa dupa fly Geneva Thomas of Clutch Magazine, and she asked if I got in (she is a Gallatin/NYU alum). It never dawned on me that I didn't give readers an update on that.

That statement of purpose did, in fact, land me in the 2012 Class in Gallatin's Masters Program. Yes, indeedy. However, because I didn't have other things taken care of I needed to defer a year. Thank GOD I did. What I have been able to accomplish in this two months that I haven't been in school is nothing short of amazing.

I will be working on my Masters in Youth Development starting Fall 2011. I am sure that when I'm there, it will be the best thing I ever did too. In the meantime, I'm creating a mission and vision so compelling that school will be a breeze I'm riding on, right to my legacy of getting a life coach in every public school in American by 2020.

Thanks for asking Geneva!

I never went to Gallatin.  The Universe had bigger plans for me...
