Moving in 64 days.

moving
In 64 days, I'll be driving cross-country with my parents to Delaware. My dad offered generously to drive our truck, which will also be towing our car.

Some things are starting to become clear in my new adventure, and some things still remain a mystery.I've been in touch with two graduate students (one is one of my POI's students and one is from hereeee :D) and they've been awesome  answering all my questions and going above and beyond what I would have ever imagined. I feel so much more at e...

POI, advancements?, MA program and 2 more...
Pardon my lame attempt at integrating "Inception" into this title ;) I bit the bullet and called my dream school POI yesterday. He kind of laughed and was like, the status of your application is... there is no status. (Cue scene from the Matrix: There is no spoon.) Which in turn made me  laugh (internally) because I know that this school has sent...

dream school, what does it mean?
I got an email from my dream school today, asking for an update on any other offers I'm considering (no update, sad day). I wrote back and said that the MA program is still the only offer, but that UMD is sending their letters via post so I might have an offer update for them in a few days. (Post, really ? Agony!)That's not the good part.The g...

I didn't email one progra...
