The Computer Science department was unable to offer me a place in their department. I'm pretty bummed about that. And of course, as I read the email, Bob Dylan's Buckets of Rain is going on in the background with these lines:
Life is sad
Life is a bust
All ya can do is do what you must.
You do what you must do and ya do it well,
I'll do it for you, honey baby,
Can't you tell?
Ah well, the email strongly encouraged me to reapply because I was a competitive applicant. And don't get me wrong--I am excited about informatics. I think I got a little excited about computer science, too... I'll apply in the winter and see what happens.
