  1. Thank you! Yeah, I think I am almost as excited about having everything decided as I am about actually going to Stanford. I thought I would still be debating in April, so I'm super happy things worked out as they did. And yes, coming from eternally rainy Germany makes California seem like a paradise.
  2. Hi everyone! Just a quick update from me--I'M GOING TO STANFORD!! It all seems incredibly surreal. I flew out from Germany to visit both it and Berkeley, and realized during the trip that Stanford was exactly what I was looking for. So YAY! I'm so happy to have the decision-making process over with, especially as I was expecting it to drag out much longer. Has anybody else made a decision?

For others who are applying or who are already studying--what programs are you looking at or where are you now? If anyone has suggestions for programs with a strong emphasis on 20th AND 21st century literature, I would love to hear them...
  5. A question for all of you grad students out there. As an undergrad, I read a ton of articles, and always printed them out, highlighted, took notes in the margins, etc. Having the actual paper in front of me made it easier to absorb the information, but was hard to keep organized and led to stacks and stacks of articles in my room by the end of the semester..... Now, I'd like to switch things over to the digital world, for the sake of saving space and making things easier to organize.
