    Egyptology at University of Toronto
  1. Anyone see the news about Yale Egyptology? http://yaledailynews.com/blog/2013/08/28/egyptology-program-in-hot-water/
  2. 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!
  3. Millionthing the "no such thing as a safety school" sentiment. My life just got flip-turned upside down in the most amazing way!
  4. Claiming the University of Toronto MA acceptance
  5. Apparently the Memphis committee is meeting this week. Anyone else excited to hear from them?
  6. Congrats to whoever it was that got into Brown!
  7. Perhaps now is a good time to begin practicing that diplomacy...
  8. 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
  9. Rock on! My undergrad mentor is an AI/HB scholar. What's your area of interest?
  10. To a full-time, self-supporting student with no family support, $150 is a lot of money.
  11. 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.
  12. I mean, though, it's an Ivy. Can you really say you're surprised that they're selective?
  13. grease fire
  14. morning after
  15. ...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.
