The grad school decision(s) is/are behind me. Everything has been figured out.
So. When I got the mail this afternoon, I really didn't pay much attention to the Marquette envelope. But, you know, I do so love getting mail that doesn't include death threats from Capital One, so I opened it.
And guess what? In a letter dated May 3, 2010 (as in, two and a half weeks the- apparently almost- universal grad school acceptance date of April 15), they offered me a complete scholarship.
The day after I signed a TA contract with another place.
Thank you, guys. That's great. FANTASTIC. I really appreciate that.*
I'm not mad. I'm really not. It's still not as great a package as UWM offered me, and can you even imagine the tears if I WASN'T COMING RIGHT BACK? Yeah. I didn't think so. It's just..really? REALLY? MAY THIRD???
I think I'm going to save the letter and keep it with my decision from Stritch. Which should arrive sometime around the beginning of August.
*And also I'm probably going to have to get my PhD from you guys. So we're totally cool, right? Right? I mean, I'm kidding. Totally.
