Tough, But Not Overly So

Filed under: Academia,Personal — by teofilo @ 4:07 pm

Hey, so remember when I didn’t get into my first-choice grad school?  Well, since then I’ve gotten into the other three I applied to.  So I’m pretty happy about that.

In other news, I’m in San Luis Obispo, which is a very pleasant little city.  I started down Highway 1 from Santa Cruz this morning, stopped for a while in Monterey, which is also very nice, then continued down to here.  The scenery on Highway 1 is fantastic, of course, and I took some pictures which I’ll put up soon.  Ultimately, though, that’s kind of a lot of narrow, winding road going along the edges of sheer cliffs above a gigantic ocean.  I’m glad I did it for the experience, but I’m not eager to do it again any time soon.

When I’m done with whatever I end up doing here I’ll turn east and see how far I get tonight, which will largely determine whether I get back to Albuquerque tomorrow or the next day.



  1. Congrats. I’m still waiting on one school. Academically, I’m pretty happy with the school that I’m likely to go to, but the remaining school could make a huge difference financially. It’s a smaller program and the most difficult to get into of the places I applied (plus I’m foreign there, but not really foreign, if you know what I mean), but I’d probably lean towards going there if I get in, at this point. Oddly, I thought completely differently only a couple of months ago when my first acceptance arrived.

  2. Thanks. I’m pretty happy with the two schools I’m currently seriously considering of the ones I got into. The decision will probably come down to a combination of aid offers and how I feel when I visit them.
