Three Down, Six to Go

This afternoon, I received an e-mail from Brigham Young University. Apparently, although I was highly recommended, according to the e-mail, the REU program was unable to offer me a place in their program this summer. Well, three down, six to go.

Two Down, Seven to Go

Finally - I'm beginning to receive e-mails pertaining to my admittance to an REU program. 
Unfortunately, San Diego State University and James Madison University couldn't offer a place for me in either of their REU programs. Also, like I previously mentioned, Oregon State University is highly interested in my case and I'm a finalist for their last few, open spots. 
So, two down, seven to go.

Stepping Out of the Waiting Room, pt. 1

Well, after a few weeks of waiting, I've finally begun to receive news from the REU programs I applied to, one in particular - Oregon State. According to the REU in Corvallis, OR, I've advanced to the next (and presumably finalist) round of the REU selection, and should hear back again soon. As for the other REU programs, no words back yet. I'm assuming that I'll know where I'm headed in about two weeks or so. I'll keep my readers posted.
