Over the winter I was accepted into the graduate school of the University of Chicago, which may I please point out, is not UIC.
I am pretty excited about going to such a prestigious school. Northwestern is the only other school in the area who can compete with U of C, but they don’t offer a Masters program for Computer Science, U of C was the only place I applied to. I attended the DePaul open house but left feeling very unimpressed. For example, DePaul has “Web Programming with ASP.NET”, U of C has “Object Oriented Architecture and Design Patterns” (a great class). The course on parallel computing will get students access to the super computer facility at Argon Nation Labs. How sweet is that?
Anyway, it isn’t going to be easy with all the work I have going on, but if I don’t do it now I may never get back to it.
And I feel so inferior to my wife with her Masters degree! 🙂
