"Weren:

Congratulations! We are delighted to offer you acceptance to the Master of Science program in Journalism at Boston University's College of Communications (COM)."*


So, now I just need to figure out how to pay for it. This is the first step in my life long dream to try and figure out how to get paid to attend baseball games.

Drinks are on me (that is, spray the champagne this way. . .).

*Note: The bold letters are theirs. That is a direct quote from the letter I just received. . . and my real name is not Weren.

Congrats, Weren! You can pay for it by joining an escort service. :D

I’ll take a glass of Chardonnay.

Yes, escort service. . . right. Maybe I can take down a governor or something so I can break it as my first major story.

Did you know that "Since 1993, 22 COM alums have been awarded the Pulitzer Prize"?


I didn't. . . but, I do now.


Also, Fenway Park is really close to campus.

crazy for letting you in, or crazy for considering journalism a 'science?'

Anyway, congratulations, I hope you meet with success.

Crazy for letting me in. . .



Yes, I also think that I would make a great food critic, or movie reviewer. . . but I am planning on concentrating in sports reporting. They have a new program just for that, it is the reason I applied to BU in the first place. . . and, oh yeah, Fenway Park is also right around the corner.

Timeout!

Weren's not your name, but they addressed you as Weren? (Is that what you're saying?)

Anyway, congrats and good luck on that payment thing.

I got my master's in journalism and had a great (intellectual) time. I never worked so hard in my life and loved every other minute of it.

I wish I could give you advice about paying for it. When I attended, it cost about $5,000 for the entire degree and that was out-of-state tuition.

What will you concentrate on in your studies?

Congratulations!!!
