TUESDAY: 9-11ish--Put in 2 more hours cutting and sending parts of this Excel spreadsheet with cover letter to the remaining 27 professors and their 27 peer mentors. Lunch. Read my own advisee folders. Wow, wow, and wow. Wow! I'm going to be working with some really interesting kids. The first admissions essay brought tears to my eyes. Great diversity in this group too: 4 African-Americans and/or African students (one student is from Ghana), 1 Asian-American student, 2 Chicano/a or Latino/a students, 1 mixed heritage Latina and Caucasian, 2 students of mixed heritage with part-Middle Eastern background (e.g., one student's dad is from Iraq), 5 Caucasians. A lot of economic diversity too. Holy wow. Whole family took dog on walk. Read with Child. 6 miles on treadmill.
