BES has been accepted into a top-20 grad program for English Lit!!!!!! (Still waiting to hear on funding, though the DGS at Top 20 begged her not to accept her OTHER totally respectable offer with full funding - though that full funding does include teaching immediately upon arrival - until the April 15 deadline, as DGS thinks that full funding - and we're talking tuition remission plus stipend with no teaching responsibility for the first year - has a chance of coming through.)
Is this achievement mine? Hell no. Do I feel a HUGE sense of achievement that I've mentored a student of mine to such an accomplishment of her own? HELL YES.
So congratulate BES on her awesomeness in the comments. (She does read over here, and she'll find it grand that people think she's awesome.)
