Anyone else absurdly worried about their applications?
I'm 27, been out of school for 5.5 years, got the grades & test scores, and (I think) good letters of recommendation -- but no planning experience whatsoever. Trying to parlay 5 years scenic design & tech theater experience into a relevant background via personal statement... and going nuts. I'm afraid I'm going to come across as a complete flake b/c of the abrupt and radical career change, and that the scores, etc. aren't going to make the difference.
Also, what on EARTH is Berkeley thinking, having the due date December 15? I'm hustling rec. paperwork out the door to benevolent ex-professors and professional contacts, but there's only a month before the deadline! Considering dropping them from my app list just so I won't piss off my recommenders...
Who else is going through this?
