I received confirmation this morning that I can start classes at IUPUI this January. Now I’ve not formally been admitted to the graduate program; I’ll be taking classes under the umbrella called “Graduate Non-Degree Program” which is a way for people to test out a course of study (and for the program to evaluate prospective students) before they go through the admissions process. I got the feeling it was a no brainer to get in at this point, since there’s no risk to the university so long as I pay my tuition, but it’s still fun to know I’m going to be taking a couple classes this spring. In addition to doing well on my GRE next month, it’s imperative that I do well in these courses. I need the professors to look at my undergrad GPA and say, “I’m shocked, this guy was one of the best students in my class” to give me an added boost when I drop the real application on them next year. Four weeks of intense GRE studying to go…
We had a baby-sitting snafu today, so I doubt I’ll be able to post some of the post-weekend stuff I had today. I attended my first Pacers game Saturday, so I’ve got pics and some info about that to share. I went with the red bean chili yesterday and feel like I made up for my poor effort on the white bean chili earlier this season. There’s probably a M.┬ástory or two I need to share as well. I’ll get to all of it when I can. In the meantime, remember to pour your beer on the curb for ODB tonight.
