For the past year or so, I’ve couched many long term plans under the banner of “if I stay at Georgia State for my PhD.” Up until this week, I was pretty sure that my inertia would keep me there; it feels like I just go there, after all.
Something finally switched over inside of my head, though, and made me realize that I probably won’t be in Georgia by August of 2008. My mentor wants me to go to UCLA. I think my adviser wants me to go to Duke.
I have to start preparing applications this summer, most likely.
