hey - congratulations to everyone. can't wait to meet you all in the fall. i'm 40, so if anyone has questions about coping with senility while in grad school, please don't hesitate to ask. i don't have anywhere near the interesting personal stories or resumes you guys have. right now, i pretty much just have sciatica. but i'm very much looking toward UCLA. and best of luck to the people still making decisions! that sounds like a good problem to have. better than sciatica, anyway. i'll stop now.
