Where are you going next year? (Collegiate 2019)

Post by CPiGuy » Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:51 am

To quote Jacob O'Rourke from last year:
it's that time of year again where people start to hear back from transfer applications, grad school apps, job offers, landlords, etc. and make plans to go places. Here is a thread in which current college players or members of the college quizbowl community can post where they'll be next. Please post only if you have something definite to share, though that includes things besides "I am going to x and such school for [Degree]"; more general notes on moving to a new metropolitan area as a non-student/non-player/employee interested in continuing to staff or do outreach, etc.

I guess I'll begin by noting that nothing is changing for me...
I just wanted to put this thread out there since I'd seen a few people talking about where they were going.

I will be going to Queen’s University for a one year bachelor of education. It’s not conditional on graduating my masters, but I sure hope I can do so before August, cutting any ties I may still have with Les Chevaliers de McGill.

I'll be staying in Chicago and applying to grad school (which means I've finished taking the classes I needed to take to do so, so I will not be in school next year).

I graduated from Maryland in December and I've been living in Palo Alto for my full-time job as a software engineer for about a month so far. I'm down to staff local tournaments, though without a car I'll probably need a ride to staff anywhere besides Stanford.

I'm done and will be moving to northern New Jersey. Happy to help out with things in the greater tri-state area as my schedule allows. Given that I won't be in grad school anymore and will be moving from a boarding school to a day school, I should have much more free time than in the past two years.

As my signature, online activity, and malevolent demeanor have indicated, I am joining the Evil Empire for a PhD.

This is somewhat old news, but I'm super excited to be at Columbia for the next two years at their MBA program! Looking forward to getting to know the team better and playing a couple of awesome seasons of quizbowl

I'm starting a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Will I be there for 4 years? 6? 8? Stay tuned. In any case, I plan to play for as long as my schedule allows.
