As I’ve wrote about before, I’ve applied to do a PhD. I was very fortunate that I was accepted at the two schools I was most interested in. After a tough decision, I’ll be officially starting at the University of Waterloo in the fall (and moved there last weekend to do some research assistant’s work through the summer).
One of the big pluses will be that I’ll be fairly close to Toronto, so I can come back whenever I hear Mike has some beer that needs drinking. My condo has been pretty hands off, but it will also be nice to be within striking distance if I need to do anything there.
My supervisor has a tendency to push students through quickly, so I may be Dr. Cheap as early as 2012 (which, really, is just around the corner).
Many, many thanks to Wooly Woman and Larry MacDonald who let me pick their brains via e-mail (Wooly Woman was good enough to even read over my application!), to everyone who has commented on my related posts and the people I’ve talked to “in real life”.
