Unfortunately, all my creative energy has been sapped for this, so don't look for any April Fool's jokes from me.
In other news, I e-mailed the Dean again re: my readmission; still no response. I am looking into how early I can return (and being proactive, yay!). If I can go back for summer session (starting June 1) I can take 6 credits, including one class with my advisor (haven't taken one with him yet), and I will be done with classes July 15th. Can anyone say ROAD TRIP? Seriously, 1 month off before classes start could be just the break I have been waiting all my life for to take my X-Country road trip. Plus, it lets me finish Cornell in one 17 credit (ugh) semester. I have As, and I'm making real progress (as opposed to aping it or jumping through hoops). Still, I need to look into transfers because nothing in life is a guarantee.
