This will probably be one of the last grad school posts here! Yay! I'd say its 99% sure that I will be at Eastman next year. I talked to Rice yesterday and they said that they weren't going to offer me anything right now. The catch is that everything could change after May 1st...if Eastman has enough people (I guess more than they need) then Adrian Daly can release me from my contract and Rice could possibly make an offer. And supposedly I'm the only one on the waitlist that they will offer a place to. So who knows what will happen with that. But in the meantime...Eastman is my future.
