So I'll quickly retype. PSU invited me to their information day. "This invitation is extended to applicants with offers or high on our waiting list." I don't have an offer, so I presume I'm high on the waiting list. They're my top choice, so if I get accepted there, I am definitely going.

Print Story that was terrible

I just lost it all at the chess game yesterday.

The rest of the content is much like all the other content I have been producing lately.

Executive summary: tired, doing work for classes, played chess poorly, waiting for responses. Very quotidian.

I accidentally navigated away.

Still no word from people. Whatevs. Not going to go too crazy. Mid-Feb is the rule for most of them, esp. the state schools, as some of them have a school-wide fellowship competition that gets results in mid-Feb, so they only get back to the very top of the pile who they would fund regardless of how many people get funding from outside the department. At least, that's what I presume based on discussions and what I read on their sites, and I infer that based on the trickle of results as well. My credentials are good, but my relatively low GPA doesn't put me in competition for that level of funding.

So we're fairly hot here at work, and we had previously blamed the fact that we were by the south-facing windows and there was an odd partition right across the hallway from us which reduced air circulation, but today was warm enough that we decided to holler at the facilities people.
