And The Winner Is...

A few weeks ago I had heard back from most of the seven grad schools that I applied to.  I was trying to make a decision between University of Oregon and Sacramento State University when I got a letter from one of my top choice schools that I had written off, Northeastern University.  They only took 35 people from hundreds of applicants so I didn't really hold out hope that I would get in there.  But I did.  I could not believe it.  I immediately began looking at everything Northeastern related online and fell in love with the school.  I joked the next day with my college advisor that the only thing that could make this decision any more interesting is if I got off the wait list at my "first choice" school.  Well, be careful what you wish for, because the next day that exact thing happened.  That "first choice" school, Case Western Reserve University, invited me to come on down to Cleveland.  After looking more into the program and the area around the University, I realized that Northeastern was my first choice all along, I just didn't have any hope of getting in there.  

So there you have it.  This fall I will be moving to Boston and will do one year of prerequisite coursework and two years of masters coursework.  I am so unbelievably excited.  I don't know what living in Boston will be like, but I am psyched to figure it all out.  Northeastern is in a small area of Boston that contains Harvard University, MIT, Tufts, Emerson, and so many more.  It is going to be so cool to be living in such a great college town with so many other students.  Go Huskies!
