STILL haven't been definitively rejected from Columbia, but I don't have enough time to sit around and wait to get rejected.
SO this is the list of master's programs I've assembled so far, with app due dates:
CUNY: Apr 14th
SFSU: May 1st
UCSB: May 1st
Columbia: Jul 15th
Bryn Mawr: Jun 30th
2 schools in the city, two schools in Cali (one in Pennsylvania...eh.) I think I have a really good shot at a master's, cause I've already missed the deadline for applying for funding, so I'll have to pay, so everybody not having any money should be less of a problem. I like Bryn Mawr and SFSU the best, I think. We'll see. Any other suggestions (theoretical blog readers...hah.)
