Good luck applicants!

Just want to wish good luck to everyone who applied for Pickering. I heard that finalists are going to be announced tomorrow, so I'll be crossing my fingers for you.
This time last year I was wondering how on earth I was going to pay for grad school -looking into selling some organs on the black market actually - and had already totally forgotten about Pickering. I just assumed it was such a long shot that I wouldn't even get called for an interview. Clearly I'm not good with predictions.

So my advice? Don't be too hard on yourself, even if you aren't chosen for this particular opportunity. And if you are chosen, don't get too cocky. I hear that oral assessment is a doozy...
