Final Score: 1-1

Ok, so I didn't get accepted to Georgetown. Honestly, it was a long shot - my GRE scores were abysmal at best, so I really wasn't holding out much hope of competing against thousands of applicants. Hey, at least I can say I tried, right?

The good news is that I did get accepted at GWU, which really does have a great program. I've been looking over the course offerings (many of which I knew I wanted before I even applied), and I feel good about the coursework opportunities. I sent back my "Declaration of Intent" yesterday, along with the $500 deposit (OUCH!). Guess that clinches it.


I can't quite wrap my brain around the fact that I'm going to grad school. It really is very exciting. I suppose it will sink in sometime next week while I'm in St. Louis on TDY.


In other news, house hunting is not going well. I'm frustrated at the current house prices and the lack of offerings. My Realtor says that we're entering prime house shopping season, so we should see the available inventory grow exponentially soon. (Come on, be impressed I can use the word "exponentially"!) As soon as the weather started warming up a bit this past week, we saw no less than 5 "For Sale" signs pop up on our street. Here's hoping that more people put their places up for sale in the neighborhood we like!

How are you today? ;)
