I received a letter today. It began something like this:
I am pleased to inform you that you have been admitted to Brigham Young University as a graduate student. We look forward to having you join us for your graduate studies and trust that your graduate experience will be both challenging and rewarding.
WAHOO! (I think an exclamation mark is warranted here)
I am excited. I wanted to let all of you know.
Thank you all for your friendship and encouragement.
