Confirmation of Nomination

Today I received this email from Beth, the International Office Coordinator:

Hello Andrea

According to the grades currently posted on your student record, you have obtained the required minimum 6.0/B GPA for this academic year and have met the condition on your exchange nomination. However, please let us know if there are any errors on the grades posted.

We will now adjust your status to YES (confirmed). Please connect with Norma if you still need to complete documents for your host university.





Spending all those 11:11 wishes on “Please get me accepted to Exchange, Please get me accepted to Exchange…” were worth it.


GPA Goal Reached!

So did I ever mention that I (finally) received my two remaining marks (from the 4410 and 4416 course that I was waiting on) yesterday?!

I got a B+ in 4416, which I was a little disappointed about because I was getting A- for the quizzes, but I know I lacked in the two major papers. And I actually really enjoyed that class, so I was disappointed that I didn’t apply myself more. But actually, I found out about the mark from my professor the night before, because I took a shot and emailed him (while slightly hinting at the minimum mark I would need)… which was good, because he said he raised my mark by one point to give me the B+ (which, once again, was the disappointing part… that I had to be bumped up by one point.)

But anyway, I found out that I got an A for my 4410 course with Prof Hyun! — which I was completely stoked about because (1.) I was somewhat expecting a B+, and (2.) I didn’t do my best in the second semester. I hardly studied for the last exam (15%), and my paper was x too, though I did manage to score a B+ on it? At that point I felt like,”huh… maybe Prof Hyun does like me!”, but then my friend said that maybe… after majoring in Korean studies for so long I just innately had the skills – or enough to bs a paper on it.

Anyhow, I made the B sessional average I needed! And so now my conditional nomination to Hanyang U should be confirmed! WHOO HOO! It’s become a bit more real now, and it’s exciting!
