    Anyone going to the Humphrey Institute's (UMN) Diversity Weekend?

    I just got word that I've been accepted to the program. I'm really excited! UMN is one of my top contenders for grad school and hopefully it'll be an awesome experience. Any other Cyburbians going?

    No but I went there in the 90's and had a blast. The Twin Cities are a great urban laboratory and the U has lots of financial aid. Hope you enjoy it.

    I went last year. It's was awesome. You'll have fun and learn alot. I also met quite a few people I still communicate with all over the US because of diversity weekend.

    First off, congrats!

    Second, did you get accepted to the PHd program? How did you hear back so early??

    And if you don't mind me asking, what's your stats? I'm applying this year, and am trying to gain some insight on their decision process.

    Thank you in advance!

    Thanks for the advice everyone!

    jchanrnr - I actually meant I got into the Diversity Weekend program, not the overall program. Sorry if I was unclear.
