I guess I could hum to myself. The entire process is out of your hands, which yes, is a little scary, but at the same time, try your best to relax. The application came out late August and was due October 31st I believe.

Have several people read over your essays Writing the application essays felt somewhat personal to me, so I totally understand apprehension towards showing it to people and receiving potentially negative feedback.
