You certainly have more cause to be upset than I am since I can drive. But still... it's frustrating. Even if it is something he genuinely didn't know... I don't know it just seems in bad form to let people make plans and then tell them afterward that the university will o longer fund those plans.

I am also wondering if the university is still paying for Gwendolyn and Laokoon because they are fellowship recipients, maybe? IF that is the case, it does make me a bit nervous that there could be some sort of divide in the department between those on fellowship and those on normal TA-ship (which a current student sort of suggested on this thread earlier).

It does seem that the grad. school proper is paying (based on the forms). I am driving, and we are not staying in a hotel. I'm really not sure what accommodations in the area look like.

So... Kathleen Griffin just called to let me know that travel expenses WILL be reimbursed after all. So disregard everything I posted about earlier. :)

 

Same here! I was so relieved! It also alleviates some of the anxiety about differential treatment we talked about earlier.

Exactly. It feels good to know that they're going through all this trouble just to make sure we can visit--they like us! They really like us!

They've got a remarkably easy bracket.

 

Haha, I know nothing about college basketball, but sources tell me they're good this year. And I heard they're seeded number 2 in their division?

 

I AM a huge college football fan though.

hey there, potential bus-towners!

 

as i make up my own final decisions, i did just want to reach out again and say HEY! i have a cheap cool lovely apartment

in the best neighborhood, ever -- SERIOUSLY, i wish i didn't have to move anywhere else; and am actually kind-of super-bummed

to have to! -- that i'll need someone to take up in either early july or august, depending on what i find elsewhere.

 

i'll be out of town for most of next week, but will definitely be home by sunday, march 31st, if anyone is still around;

i could also try to share pictures!

 

again: WISH I COULD STAY HERE FOREVER; and, since i know i'm so freaked out considering neighborhoods and only

having craigslist as a metric for the places i'm considering moving to, please feel free to PM me for any neighboorhood

suggestions, or if you have specific buildings, streets, &c., in mind!

 

 

 

 

yay columbus!

and welcome to all who are gonna be coming to visit!,

 

 

 

 

 

cougars!

I just wanted to clarify this point I made in a previous post. It's not like there's a rivalry between those on fellowships and those with TA funding (definitely not the Jets and the Sharks by any means). It's just more difficult for students on fellowships to meet other people in the department since we're not part of the two week pre-semester teaching workshop and taking 4 classes means a different schedule. Everyone is very nice in the department; it just takes more effort for people on fellowships to develop relationships because there's not the immediate bonding experience that the teaching workshop provides.

I won't be around campus 'til Friday morning. I'll be searching for coffee before the day's activities though, if anyone has recommendations/wants to join me.

Yes! I met you, ZacharyBinks, Laokooon. I just assumed you all knew who I was! I was wearing a tie, carrying a briefcase.

It was so great meeting you all! I had a GREAT time at OSU.

Fantastic! I was 99% sure that was you! It was so nice to meet everyone in person.
