Well, we didn’t get into NYU. But, the good news is that we just saved $21,000. Also, we get to live near Adrian & Jodie in Indiana during grad school. Bloomington is a beautiful town and Indiana’s journalism program is really good. In fact, Wikipedia (which is always right) does say that the IU journalism program is one of the very best in the nation. It may not be as glamorous as NYU, but we can deal with that. Besides, Bloomington has an Ultimate league and rock climbing, both of which we have been missing terribly since moving to our island in the sun. (NYC has a league as well, but they play on Sundays.)
We did, however, really want to go to NYC, but it looks like that plan will have to wait for a bit. Slightly disappointing, yes, but it is kind of a relief knowing that we won’t be paying for my graduate education for the next 20 years. And also that we won’t be in our fifties before we can buy a house. It is a bit sad that we didn’t get our first pick, but we are trusting that the Lord is still watching out for us and that this is the best thing for our family. We are really excited to be around family and to pay less than $4 for a gallon of milk.
