Mark gets into NYU!
My son Mark, about to turn 23 and living on the Upper East Side of NY City with his girlfriend Sarah, just found out he got into a literary journalism program at NYU! He applied a week ago and already had lunch with the head of the program, and he told Mark that he would get in no matter what. Mark will also get some money (one rarely gets support in a master's program) and will take out student loans for the rest. He will continue to work at the coffee shop. This is great news! What else to do in a recession but go to grad school? I am so proud of him!
