He did it!
We received very good news today: Luke (my husband) was accepted into the Ph.D. program at the University of Chicago School of Social Adminsitration. The program will be a policy degree, but through a social work school. Since he made the decision to head towards academia, there has been a wonderful sense of direction and excitement in his life. On a vaguely related note, AKMA had some thoughts on academia and community. I have always been interested in academia myself. Perhaps I'll come back to school someday and get an advanced degree and teach. Someday.
