Update (Happy)

Just got word that I'm in at Ohio State and I'm being nominated for the University Fellowship. The director sounded very enthused about my SOP, so hopefully I'll have more good news filtering in, although I wouldn't be too awfully depressed if I didn't get in anywhere else (though, of course I would like to!). w00t!

O MAN THAT IS AWESOME. (notice the capital letters!) Seriously thats great, now you can relax and be pleasantly surprised with any other acceptances and fellowships you may get. Now everything you did in undergrad was worth it.

And in regards to your SOP, when all is said and done your going to have to let me read it.

Congrats again!

Hopefully you still have a bunch more of these posts coming.

Yeah, it does make me much more relaxed... although now I have gotten myself very hopeful about UCLA and Minnesota (even Northwestern) thinking that the probability of getting into one of these schools given that I got a pretty favorable response from OSU must be higher than getting in alone.

Anyway, thanks Adam, I'll post my SOP on here once all of the admits/rejects have rolled in.

Thanks Paul. I continue to be uncertain who you are over at TM... but I remember you posting about schools on here, so good luck to you, too!

Congratulations. Last year at this time I got the same response from OSU. Ended up getting into UCLA and NW as well. At NW now, so I just thought I'd help keep you excited. Good luck.

Hah, thanks anon! Now I'll check my email every five minutes instead of every ten! You wouldn't happen to know if Francisco Buera is going to stick around NWU, would you? I find this research really exciting.

Well, Andy. Some people have accused me of having a snappy wit, and at times , a crabby attitude. Wink wink, nudge nudge?

But congrats. I'm quite envious in that you've already got an admit under your belt. In the very least it takes a bit of stress off.

BTW, since you are a fellow beer afficinado, have you ever had Wittekirke? Its a Belgian white(wit), and is perhaps one of my favorites. Not sure if Belgians are your style or not, but I thought I'd pass it along. As many beers are, it is much better on tap than bottled or in cans. In cans at least, the coriander doesn't really come through, but I think a fine beer still. and at least worth a sample on a warm summer day.

And I can't spell. Make that a Wittekerke

Hey Paul, I think I have the identity thing figured out now. On the beer- I haven't had that brew, but I typically really like saison and triple style Belgian brews. I've had a few wits that I like, but I'm much more of stout/porter kind of guy. My favorite beers of all time are mostly U.S. micros- Anchor Porter, Bell's K-Zoo Stout, and 3-Floyds brews. I'm not sure where you are located, but if you haven't had any of those three and you can find them, I definitely suggest trying them. I will pick up a bottle of Wittkerke next time I am in Indianapolis (Muncie has a poor beer selection).

Sitting here having a new beer - a Sierra Big Foot (barleywine). Decent head, amber-to-dark-amber with a hoppy nose. Overall, very hoppy, but smooth. - Decided I'd treat myself after my YU reject today. ;)

RE the U.S. micro's: I've had all of the Anchor products, except for their barleywine - Foghorn I think? As for the others, I haven't had them, but the 3-Floyds does sound familiar (I'm east coast, mid-atlantic, somewhere between, DC and NC). Decent beer selection here, and around my home town, so I'll def. keep a look out.

Good luck regarding the rest of your apps!
