I got into Boston University! Depending on if I get the fellowship at Buffalo, Boston might be offering me a much better deal. We'll see.

I need to get back into school. I think I'm going to take a summer course at the local community college before starting the fall semester. I'll pick a math or science, or something I hate like that. I need to move forward with my life.

Happy to say I got accepted to the University of Colorado Boulder. However, they put me on a "funding waitlist" so I don't feel as bad about turning them down. Iowa is not only a better school, but they offered to fund me for six years, provided I continue onto getting a PhD there.

Unless Emory can at least match what Iowa's giving me, then yes. Still waiting to hear from them. UMass hasn't gotten back, but Iowa is still a better place.

Note that Emory is about the same as Michigan in terms of prestige, and Michigan waitlisted me.

In all likelihood it will be Iowa.

Zeph, grats on the acceptances and whatnot.

Anyway, I'm still pursuing a lowly bachelors at Saint Louis University and getting raped in the process, both mentally and financially. The most annoying factor was the parking pass price increase of 30% to $250 a semester, which is fucking absurd.

Nice man, sounds like it's going well!

I'm still waiting on a few schools also; so far, I have two acceptances and two rejections, the latter being U of Michigan and UPenn. Both schools have top-ten English programs, so I knew the competition was fierce. It's starting to get a bit late in the process, so I'm preparing for my acceptance streak to come to an end.

That said, I'm very happy with my options at Buffalo and Boston; both schools offered me tuition wavers and fellowships for 4/5 years, with an additional dissertation-year fellowship I can apply for. Furthermore, both departments have great faculty, and both (especially Buffalo) specialize in critical and cultural theory, which is what I'm interested in.

You guys pay for parking too? Our parking is for free. And that's how it should be.

A semester permit at UNLV is $50, but at CSN (local community college) it's free. I only have one in person class at UNLV this semester so I just park nearby and walk... except the one time I didn't I got a parking citation

Parking at my uni is $120 a semester. Luckily, I'm not on campus this semester

After my recent trip to FL, FSU will be on my lists for grad schools. they happen to have a ridiculously awesome musicology and jazz studies programs...I would be stoked to be able to combine the two somehow

Got rejected by Emory. Well good. I'd rather not be in the South. Just have to hear from UMass now but the deal is all but sealed. I'll be at Iowa for at least the next two years.

I have to be honest, Iowa seems like a fucking drag. That doesn't play into your decision?

I've never been one to get attached to locations, so long as I enjoy the work I'm doing there, and at a Big Ten school I'm sure I'll meet plenty of new awesome friends, peers and other such people. Iowa City seems to have all the necessities of living comfortably and having a life, and what it lacks I can find in Chicago just 3 1/2 hours east where my cousin lives.

But yes, it will be a drag not having the seafood access I've so enjoyed living in New England. I'll be doing plenty of boat-trips to the lobster shacks this summer.

Well that's it, folks. I got waitlisted by UMass. I will be making a phone call to the University of Iowa tomorrow. I will be moving out there in mid-August.

Congrats man! That's awesome.

I wish I could say I've made a decision. I'm visiting Boston U on the 23rd; the department is hosting an open house for accepted candidates. After that I hope to know more.

I also got waitlisted at UIC.
