Jake applied to nine different PhD. Programs. We've heard back from one of the nine, and it was good news. This is a list of where he applied, starting on the West Coast and moving east.

University of Minnesota: Comparative Studies in Discourse and Society - Not Accepted
University of Chicago: Musicology - ACCEPTED with 2/3 fellowship
The Ohio State University: Comparative Studies - Not Accepted
Yale: American Studies - Not Accepted
University of Pennsylvania: Musicology
University of Virginia: Critical and Comparative Studies
University of North Carolina: Musicology
Emory: Interdisciplinary Studies - Not Accepted

I'm really excited about Chicago. It's one of the top programs in the nation. We're still waiting to hear about funding, which is super important. They have totally decent graduate housing. It's all in Hyde Park, which just so happens to make me giddy.

Which is odd...

I don't like it when it's not sunny. I'm not a huge fan of cold weather. I'd like to love on a farm.


I love old houses. I'm obsessed with public transportation. Diversity rocks my world.


There's an LDS church in the middle of the neighborhood. Walk to church? You bet! Except for maybe in the freezing cold.


Free museums, a farmer's market in summer, one of the largest art shows, TWO major airports. Did I mention public transportation? And an endless amount of stuff to figure out. I haven't been able to stop looking at neighborhood reviews, things to do, housing, etc. I hope I'm this excited about every school he's accepted to, but I instantly fell in love with Chicago. I can't imagine being as excited about Minnesota or Ohio or Philadelphia. Maybe though.

My Coco just woke up. Have fun day dreaming with me.


  1. I am so jealous that you guys have heard something! We are still just waiting and waiting! There's a chance that we could be in Chicago too, That would be so fun! Tell Jake congratulations! love you
