I use hotmail as a spam collector account, giving only people I really care to hear from my real address.<P>As for schooling out West... I want to start off by saying that I know you are an intelligent woman and that you will make the right decision. I'm just really thinking out loud here:<P>If you're sure you want to do that, then go for it. I'm not sure it will alleviate the loneliness except to put you and your boyfriend together (that's a BIG thing, I know -- if it weren't for Jen I don't know how I'd survive here in Nash Vegas). There are things to consider, like strength of the program at other schools, in-state vs. out-of-state tuition, and what have you.<P>I'm currently considering graduate school (and I know you're in a different situation, I'm just making conversation here). I'll be taking the GRE in October. I'd LOVE to go back to Cornell, but (a) I'd have to quit my job, (b) I couldn't afford it, and (c) I'd be away from Jen, which neither of us would be able to bear. So I'm looking at schools in the Boston area (plenty of those!). Then there's the full-time/part-time decision -- I can't afford full-time, and if I go part-time I'd have to reduce my job from a full-time job to a part-time job, halving my salary. UNH is attractive because I would get NH resident tuition -- but I'm not sure I like their computer science grad program as much as I like Boston University's or Northeastern's. It's a tough decision, but I have the rest of my life to make it.<P>I can't say much about how difficult it is to transfer credits, as I was at the same college for all 4 years of undergrad -- that's another consideration.<P>I wish you the best of luck, whatever you decide.<P>It's very nice to see that POCKET is finally back. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> Good things come to those who wait, huh?<P>-Tom
