has decided, in their infinite (and possibly flawed) wisdom, to accept me to their doctoral program in music theory/musicology. I am, needless to say, pretty pumped about this. Also, I would like to commend Stony Brook on not only having the absolute EASIEST application to navigate in terms of laying out EXACTLY what was required, but also for having reasonable deadlines, allowing supporting material to arrive after deadlines, and responding lightning fast with an acceptance decision (The deadline was Jan. 15!). Furthermore, they let me know via E-MAIL, which, if you know universities and acceptance decisions, is pretty monumental. In celebration, I believe I will eat a hot dog today.
