I got word last night in the form of a big envolope.
Dear Mr Bernius:
On behalf of the Division of Social Sciences, I am pleased to offer you admission to the University of Chicago for graduate study in the Master of Arts Program in the Social Sciences for the 2004/2005 academic year.
Perhaps more surpising was what came next:
In addition, I am pleased to inform you that we can offer financial assistance
They are funding 1/3, approximately $10,000 of my cost.
I don’t know what to say, I’m scared and excited at the same time.
