No Go.

So Cornell Business School correctly declined my petition to have my application reconsidered on late notice. With such a fast turnaround time, I was giving myself about a 10% chance of getting in regardless, so this is no surprise. I will certainly be applying again next year to them and to other schools. In the meantime, I will be moving to Ithaca next week to be with Christine. What am I going to do for money for the next year? Well, I have two kidneys, and it is a high demand market… I will be playing poker and doing some consultinng work for companies looking to advertise online. Between the two, I only need to make half of what I was making at my job to be ahead of where I was financially. The job I just left was paying for both our rents plus about $400 per month; Enough for 4 round trip tickets to Ithaca per month. This does not add up, as a guy has got to eat. If my poker results are as good every month as they were last month, which is unlikely given that I made about $9000 in a month, I will be quite well off. The best part of this decision is that Christine supports it, and that is all I need.
