A Waitlist from Outerspace

So----I'm waitlisted at Cornell. I found out today, J Robert Lennon emailed me after I called the office to ask for an update on my status. I'm so (very very) low on the list that there's no chance I'll get in, but I just feel really really happy to have made the list at all, and it feels really good just to know.

Hello. I've read on your blog that you got into U of Minnesota. Also, the waitlist at Cornell is nothing to sniff at either. =) I would like to know what your GRE scores were-- that is, if you don't mind telling. I was considering applying to both Minnesota & Cornell but am not sure because of my crappy GRE scores (530 verbal, and like 9th percentile in math). I would appreciate it.

Oh yeah-- also, I came across your bit on Tuscon/U of Arizona on P&W. Very handy advice (I'm definitely applying there). I laughed about the metal benches. That is definitely odd. At UNLV, where I'm sure the temps are just about as hot as U of A, most of the benches are made of stone/concrete (and the few metal benches are coated in a weird temp. resistant paint).

Hi LeavingLV, if you post an email address where I can reach you, I'll be glad to tell you my scores. (I don't know how much I think they really factor in, though.)

I've heard great things about UNLV, at least the MFA program, it sounds really interesting. And I've been in Vegas, it's definitely eyeballs-frying hot there, too. I don't know how it's possible to think that metal + heat = outdoor seating : )
