Not Going to Harvard

February 16, 2009

What a week for disappointment.

Just got an email from the “Regional Studies: East Asia” master’s program at Harvard, saying that they decided I was very qualified for their program but that the Graduate School put strict limits on admission numbers this year and that they couldn’t admit me. That’s both disappointing and a bit strange because it’s not as if they were going to offer me any money for a master’s degree anyway. I’m not sure what the GSAS is thinking, aside from maybe worrying that folks will be unable to get the college loans necessary to fund their degree.

Still haven’t heard from UW in Seattle, but I was honestly hoping to avoid having to move across the country, even though their master’s program is great and a whole lot cheaper (plus, Alexis and Ben are already in it).
