Caffeine…..HIGH! March 29, 2006

OKAY!  The latest news!  Charlie suggested to me that I check on Minnesota’s requirements for residency status, as non-resident tuition rates are double those for residents.  So as a non-resident I’d be charged $16K/year, versus $8K/year if I were a resident.  As I was reading about it, I stumbled upon an exemption for graduate students: if you hold a teaching assistantship position, you’re automatically charged resident rates.  I was OFFERED A TA POSITION.  I’d only be charged $8K/year!  And the TA position would pay $4K!  That’s a whole heck of a lot more viable an option than having to personally pay $12K/year like I thought.  Yesterday I told the Minnesota woman that I wouldn’t be able to go if I had to pay the $12K/year (as McGill is a lot cheaper, even without considering the possibility of getting a TA position there).  Today I had to write her back and apologize for not knowing how the system works, and tell her that I *would* be able to accept the position and attend Minnesota if I would be charged resident rates.  So!  That’s exciting!  There is some hope!  A glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel!  Gold at the end of the rainbow!  Greener grass on the other…okay, that’s enough.

Ow, my head hurts.
