Today I received notice of something that I've been waiting a long time for. I found out today that I have been accepted to the greatest university on the face of the earth. I received acceptance into the graduate school in the Masters of Social Work school with a concentration in Interpersonal Practice. I couldn't be more excited about becoming a member of the Maize and Blue family.
OT - I'm Finally Going to be a Michigan Man
I'm proud announce today that I "officially" bought a University of Michigan T-shirt at WalMart officially making me a "WalMart Wolverine!"
Plus I just pooped.
I was weary if this thread would be equivalent to the "I retired today" thread.
I worry if a thread makes you weary; makes me wary of your comments.
I'm pretty weary not gonna lie at this moment, had some celebratory Fat Tires throughout the night.
weary (adj): to be physically or mentally exhausted; fatigued; tired
wary (adj): watchful; to be one's guard against danger.
If you're going to call yourself a Michigan Man, you better know the difference.
Congratulations and best of luck in your academic pursuit.
Welcome to the family. As a 2007 School of SW grad, I congratulate you on your acceptance and wish you much success. GOBLUE
Congrats! What a great day. I cried when I got my acceptance letter.
Just wait until you graduate.
PS - Not sure why some assholes downvoted you.
Michigan men do not cry. Only girly men do.
Strong men also cry. Strong men also cry.
I negged him because he implied that he wasn't a Michigan Man before he was accepted to the University.
I like this answer and I like that the old school Darker Blue seems to be coming back again lately.
It feels good to be back. I know I seem rather juvenile at times ( and I am, make no mistake about it) I'm just a dude who loves the University of Michigan, and attempting to make people laugh, Life is serious enough, so I make dick jokes to get me though the day.
I appreciate the brutal honesty and confidence at the end of this comment. Good for you, sir.
Also, congrats Qmatic.
Let's really dig into semantics here
I'd rather dig into a big bowl of pudding.
quite possibly the proudest moment of my life.
Lord Grantham is a bitch
^ girly mahn
... the man who had to marry a wealthy daughter of a millionaire dry goods merchant in order to save his estate.
You can have a sugar momma and still not be a girly mahn.
... but not much of a man. Not much of a man, at all. Best to go amuse yourself in your old Army uniform and stay out of the real decisions, lest you end up with a dead daughter and a bunch of useless shares in a Canadian railroad.
How the hell have you collected almost 4500 points in less than 2 months?? That has to be a record
I live a sad and lonely life.
I cried when I was accepted as well. At the time I thought it was my greatest accomplishment...
I did have to downvote you for complaining about downvotes though... sorry, its just something I do.
Because some people just won't let other people have nice things. Not a big deal.
You're not a real Michigan student until you buy your first beverage at Rick's American Cafe
I never bought a drink at Ricks until after I'd graduated.
SKEEPS FOR LIFE
Surely what you mean is that you don't have any memories of buying a drink at Ricks until after you graduated?
All day this.
Skeeps was just too fratty for me lol
Hot girl on Mgoblog!??
a few nights at ol Ricks - I'm assuming the lines haven't dwindled down to get into that craphole in recent years, have they?
Congratulations! That's a great accomplishment. Welcome to the family.
On all your success! You smell wonderful!
Awesome, really truly happy for you! Go Blue!
Congrats and welcome to the U.
Isn't that Miami? (YES THAT MIAMI FOO)
Congratulations! I remember when I logged into the Michigan Law accepted student page for the first time (it's the way law students find out their decision before they receive the package)....I screamed and did a lap around my house.
There are few better feelings.
i did the same thing and then three years later wondered how i could be such a tool. no offense. you might not be a tool for being so excited over getting into a law school but i was. am.
But come on, crippling student debt is awesome!
My girlfriend is currently getting her MSW from UM (she's doing the same concentration I believe, but also doing the Peace Corps for two years as well). Congrats! I hear great things about the program from her. Also heard good things about the football players getting MSWs. Particularly Gardner and Cam Gordon
I think it'd be the coolest thing ever to have Gardner/one of the football players as a tutor. Would be sooo hard to focus., but wouIdn't miss a session.
Doubt they'd have time but don't they sometimes have student work program jobs? Or is it usually just jobs where attendance is optional(or is that only in SEC\ACC land)?
Also OP CONGRATS! (yes caps seem warranted)
May your years in Ann Arbor be full of higher learning - mixed in with occasional fun! It won't be easy, but well worth the sacrifice.
Congrats man definitely board worthy!
