I met the grad program director, two faculty members, and the department chair. I got a tour of the department and some of the nearby campus buildings (library, fancy student union/classroom thing).

It's comforting to see that universities everywhere stick their humanities departments in aging buildings.

I liked it. The faculty were nice. They had a crapton of German books. The grad director is a medievalist and has a shelf full of Tolkien (and he said that sometimes a guy in LING offers an Old English/Tolkien class, and on occasion there's a course in Gothic).

I will have to learn a second foreign language, but I could refresh my Japanese or take something like French. I'm looking into getting a head start here, depending on what I take.

The department chair said, "You could apply for spring admission." I didn't know that was a possibility, and I'm not sure I want to? I mean, yeah, sooner started, sooner finished, but that's 6 months away. Application deadline is Sept 15. I could probably swing that, but I don't know. Do I want to start in the middle of the year? It sounds like the setup for something awkward, like not belonging to either fall admission cohort. (Then there's the question of finding an apartment January 1...) IDK. I emailed the program director and asked about that (and about the 2nd language.)

So yeah. I want to make this thing happen. Here's to making my application the best I can.
