Early September Update

I know I’ve been chatting with a few of you, but I thought I’d go ahead and update everyone on what’s going on with me.  Last I wrote, I was still waiting to hear back from UBB about my PhD application.  Since then, the response has come back and I was rejected because I don’t yet have a masters.  That’s a bit annoying because I did bring this up early in the process and tried to get an answer, but oh well.  With that specific response in hand, we have now applied for a masters and are waiting to hear back about that.

In the meantime, we are now here in Romania and trying to get settled into our new life.  I think it’ll be a bit before we can completely relax as I still have some paperwork to get through, but at least we are here and can start moving forward again.

well that sucks! Maybe they could of told you before you moved your entire family. I guess you were going to move anyway. Hope everything is going well. I guess you'll be there for at least another two years on top of what you were planning on :)

Yeah it's less than ideal, but it was always an option. Though to be fair it was the Ministry of Education that denied my request and not the university. That was out of their control.

Over time this whole thing became the excuse to come here, so it's not the end of the world.
