My fingers are shaking as I type this.

My application for Colgate is DONE. But I am so nervous about "Why Transfer" essay... I highlighted its history and Russian departments (particularly why this history dept. is far better than my current school's (no comparsion, just pointing out how it can help me)), discussed an e-mail conversation with a Russian prof who shares my interests, and emphasized how I want to take their core courses (my biggest attraction). There are so much more that I can say why I love the school.. I love going to the games there, I love the campus, like just about everything. But I know that there's got to be a limit. I did finish off how out of all schools (15) I've visited, Colgate is the only one that feels like home and just perfect fit.

I was originally denied admissions and I don't know if I can bare it if they can't see how much I love that damn school.

Tell me my essay is just fine!

I should send it out because the application is done.
