a bit of news

I will not go 0 for 6 with my PhD apps. Got a phone message today from #2 school...they think I'd be a great fit and would like to offer me a slot and 4 yrs of funding.

I agree with them. I would be a good fit there, and it's in an area much more suited to my temperament (read: not a big city).

Needless to say, I was not expecting a phone call from them today. In fact, I had just received the "your application is complete and we expect to make a decision in the next six to eight weeks" letter on Saturday, and here it is Tuesday and the lovely director of grad studies leaves a message on my cell.

I'm pretty stoked, but I'm also anxious about choice #1.
