In the last month I applied for and was actually accepted into USF's Master of Public Administration program. Then I did a little research and found out they have a 90% acceptance rate. I mean, they must be pretty desparate for enrollments if they accepted my ass. They even waived the application fee, and they moved the deadline forward because they wanted to make a "decision" quickly. I missed the new deadline, and they still let me submit everything, and the next day I was accepted. Two days later was the registration meeting. I went down there to tell them "no thanks" (actually, I deferred admission, just in case) and there were a whopping five people there. Somehow I don't think this program is quite up to Berkeley's standards.
Just to illustrate my point, I read in the paper that even the Dalai Lama got a degree from USF this past weekend. Now they're just handing these out to anyone. Come on, I don't think this guy puts too much time into his schoolwork, seeing as how he's too busy running from the Chinese government and all.
I still haven't ranted on the work situation, have I? Stay tuned.
