some quick notes on school

UC Berkeley apparently already has a lot of rad people, so they said no.
UC Santa Cruz has not only offered admission, but also a fellowship.
U of Minn Has offered admission + a moving bonus, so that's nice.
Emory just hosted Mark for the weekend, which was wonderful.
U of Mich has Mark as their second alternate and they "hope and pray" that two people decide not go there so that he can - which seems really weird, but whatever.

yale, chicago, vanderbilt, and texas still haven't made up their minds. we'll see what happens
