And now I completely want to go to Northwestern.
They have a Ph.D program that I could apply to for next fall, several professors I could work with, and all admitted students are granted funding that includes a tuition waiver and a living stipend.
Only problem- it's in EVANSTON. And I'm not. The reason I would need a living stipend would be so that I could move out. The place I will be moving to is in Fox Point.
According to MapQuest, that's about an 89.66-mile problem.
Oh well. At least I've stopped freaking out about the GRE.
