I’m in

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.
