Accepted to UT

Jeff got a phone call from the Asst. Director of Admissions at the University of Texas at Austin on Friday letting him know that they were accepting him into the 2011 graduating class (2 year program). She said that applications had been very strong this year, and they have been extremely picky with their applicants. She said that they were sorry for getting back to us so late in the process but that they really wanted Jeff to attend their program. Jeff immediately responded with "I'm sorry, but we already decided that if we didn't hear from you by the middle of May that we would not go anywhere this year and apply again next year. My wife is pregnant and due in August, so it would be very difficult for us to pick up and move now" (he got this call on Friday, June 26). She said that she understood, but that she would like us to take the weekend and discuss it (which was very nice of them).

My first reaction was absolutely not! I cannot pull off a move on such short notice! However, we had a lot of amazing things happen to us over the course of the weekend, and we finally knew that Texas was where we were supposed to be. We accepted on Tuesday, June 30. Texas, here we come!!
