And..... They're In!

All of our graduate applications are IN! 
{"Our" referring to the combined effort- but Jed will be the graduate student}

So- in *NO* particular order: 

University of Illinois- Urbana/Champaign, Illinois
Purdue University- West Lafayette, Indiana

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, Massachusetts

University of Wisconsin- Madison, Wisconsin

University of Utah- Salt Lake City, Utah


We are more than overjoyed to be done with the application process- but now we are just WAITING. We don't expect to hear anything back until March/April so now we just have 3 months of anxiety. We are very pleased with the schools we have applied to- would be happy with any of them- but if it wasn't obvious enough- this list is in our preferred order. 

Firstly, we just want to go to graduate school- wherever they will accept us. Then of course we have to consider the price of the university, as well as consider the school's engineering rank.  Location of course is also important- though it will be difficult to leave everything in Provo. Most importantly, we will go wherever the Lord wants us to be- wherever and whenever we are needed.

Looking forward to some big changes for our family in 2012!
