Looking back on it, I may have actually done almost everything the wrong way. I waited to the last minute to start the application, which was the basically the first week of school; I changed my destination in the middle of the process, in about mid-September; and I technically quit and reconsidered before my final interview, in October. Now I, by the grace of God, am a finalist for the Fulbright Scholar Award, an international U.S. ambassador program that allows you to either teach or do research in another country for a year.
