    3/4 complete. As long as my inebriation and sleep deprivation didn't fuck up that last submission of comp exam papers (fingers crossed), I'm hopefully due to graduate (well… finish. Graduation's later in July I think) by this weekend.

    Drop mic, drop pack, ship off to the deepest ocean blue for a while. See you later, or, if i have decent boat internet, sooner. Hopefully when I get back, I'll be a man with a graduate degree.

    I just took the GMAT exam for the second time, after having done pretty poorly the first go round, and killed it this time. I submit my first application tomorrow and four more after that in pretty quick succession.

    Should I include "sticktap to William Patrick Corgan" on my application essay to University of Chicago?

    Political Science PhD. Applying to focused Poli Sci programs at Chicago, Harvard, Brown, Yale. Applying to practitioners/interdisciplinary IR program at Tufts Fletcher School. Not sure what my chances are, but I think I’m an interesting candidate. We’ll see how it plays out.

    I’m old as fuck to be doing this right now, but I’ve already put in a butt load of time with the military so this is affectively me trying to launch a second career. If everything works out, five years or so from now I’ll have a PhD and I’ll start looking for tenure-track professor positions. Failing that, maybe I’ll run for political office somewhere.

    Best of luck Ned and godspeed. Have you ever visited Hyde Park? You have roots in the Chicagoland area, isn't that right?

    Might be time to nuke the board. For Ned's sake.

    I think the dirt to dig up on here is probably minimal. Being White House chief of staff, for instance, would be a lot more compromising.

    This board will be the kind of real street cred that a veteran like Ned needs for a 2040 campaign

    I hate student loans.

    Can't even choose which bank account I want to set up the automatic payments to pay them from. If you want to switch, it takes "one to two billing cycles" for it to kick in and start drawing from the specific account that you wish to pay from.

    I wanted to ask the girl on the phone why but I didn't want to bust her nuts and she probably didn't have an answer for me anyway, I mean why would she know that? The self-service website is broken and useless. I thought I was done posting in this thread but you're never really done here are you
