    Anyone see the news about Yale Egyptology?

    This thread has been a big comfort, especially given the current visa worker strike.  This is the same advice I was given by my school, but I heard it here first!

    Millionthing the "no such thing as a safety school" sentiment.  My life just got flip-turned upside down in the most amazing way!

    Apparently the Memphis committee is meeting this week. Anyone else excited to hear from them?

    Perhaps now is a good time to begin practicing that diplomacy...

    As an asthmatic with severe allergies, I use a small air purifier with a HEPA filter in my bedroom.  Something like this may be helpful to you: http://www.amazon.com/Honeywell-16200-Desktop-HEPA-Purifier/dp/B0000TMDY2/ref=pd_sbs_hg_5

    Rock on! My undergrad mentor is an AI/HB scholar. What's your area of interest?

    To a full-time, self-supporting student with no family support, $150 is a lot of money.

    No, you can't buy a position in grad school, but when you have a trust fund, don't have to work, can afford an expensive top-tier undergrad and can travel for unpaid internships, it sure is one heck of an advantage.

    I mean, though, it's an Ivy. Can you really say you're surprised that they're selective?

    ...turns out it'll probably be harder to become a muppeteer than it will be to get into grad school.  I don't know if that's comforting or discouraging.
