It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted, and many apologies to the countless emails and comments that I’ve yet to reply over the past 2 months or so. I’d get to them asap but if you have anything urgent you might find the FAQ page useful.
I just wanted to clarify what I’m doing now, and what I’ll do for the blog in future.
So…….I’ve actually graduated from Underwood International College this summer!! Finally the 4 years of my undergraduate studies in Korea has come to a close and I’m immensely thankful to every professor, staff and friend who’ve helped me along this unconventional (and certainly not easy) path. (Sorry but no photos because I wasn’t able to go to my own graduation ㅠㅠ)
So what am I doing now? This actually relates to why I’m so crazily busy. I spent June/July packing up my life in Korea and unpacking them in Singapore, then packing them up again for the U.S. I’ve been in the U.S. since August, studying for my Master’s degree! The jump to graduate school is weighing down on me quite a bit and I’m still adjusting to the best of my abilities, which explains my inactivity.
So what are my plans for this blog? For one, I hope that it will continue to serve as a point of information about applications to Korean universities, and while application procedures might change I hope some of my experiences will still be helpful in helping you make a decision.
Also, I will still be available over emails and comments to give advice as much as I can, but please bear with me if I’m taking forever to reply. I am trying my best but there is just simply limited time + too many emails and comments I need to get to. This is also the reason why I highly recommend you to look under the Useful Links tabs to find other blogs, because some of them have active bloggers working on them!
Lastly, if I ever find the time, I will still post about other topics such as career prospects (now based on experiences of myself and my friends who graduated), and perhaps travelling in Korea when I go back. No promises but I will try!
Before I sign off, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s been reading this blog and giving me the motivation to sustain it despite my busy schedules. It’s been a great joy for me to see many of you coming to Korea (to UIC!) and achieving your dreams, and I’m glad that I managed to help in some way. All the best to all of you who are currently in Korea already, and to future applicants, good luck and I wish the best for all of you too!
