    Hello from Ontario, Canada!

    Hi everyone, I've been lurking but just got my acceptance from McGill and from Queens for their Master of (Urban) Planning programs! I'm super excited.

    3 years after I did my bachelors in engineering from McGill, I'm going back to school so that'll be a change. Still confused which one to go to - gotta decide in 2 weeks. Also, if anyone has any tips before starting school hit me!

    Looking forward to more lurking but also more participating

    What do Canadians call 'regular' bacon? I know what Americans call 'Canadian bacon' is called 'back bacon' where you're at, but what do you call those fatty strips of bacon at the grocery store?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    You know what? I've never, ever thought about it. Bacon to me is just... bacon. It always has just existed in my life. Deliciously so.

    Hello from Kansas. No, there's no special Kansas bacon cut.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    Hey

    Howdy from the dirtiest, most filthy place in California (No not Van Nuys).

    Enjoy your visit....and I may need to claim asylum on your couch.

    Hello from ! My tip for grad school - if you don't already have a job in the field, get and keep an internship!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for the tips. The program I'll be doing requires both an internship in the summer between the academic years AND a research project.

    Also. You'd all be welcome to crash on my couch in Montreal! It's beautiful here.
