Librarian Wannabe

First entry...hmm...well I'm currently emloyed as an IT drone for a large insurance company, but I've decided to change careers, for a variety of reasons I'll explain later. My current plan is to become an academic librarian, specifically doing IT stuff at a Library.

I've applied to go to the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I'm currently waiting to see if my applicaton is accepted - wish me luck!

It is a great school, good luck with your application!

I found out yesterday the first session is full, so I'm in the second one.

Thanks! LEEP, but I haven't found out which session - I'm going to ask for first.

Yeah! Congratulations! Have you decide to attend? LEEP, right? I signed up for the first summer session. When are you attending?

Well good news - I was admitted! Phew!

Sorry to hear about your no letter. Maybe one will still roll in. Though I don't know you, it would be fun to go through the program with a fellow LISer.

I did apply to the LEEP program. I live in Alaska and would like to stay here....but honestly, distance education sort of freaks me out. The idea of having "real time" classes makes the scariness of distance seem a bit more traditional. I am trying to decide between LEEP and the program at UNC. I hate making decisions particularly when large sums of money are on the line.

Did you apply any where else? Best wishes to you....I hope a program you like works out for you.

That's sort of depressing actually - no letter here. :(
Did you also apply to the LEEP program?

Best wishes! I also applied to UIUC, and just got my acceptance letter today! Hope it also works out for you.

I just graduated from UIUC and it is an excellent school. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

Couldn't have picked a better school. Good luck and be sure to keep us posted. Tell us what you are currently doing that led you in this direction.

bummer we aren't going to be in the same session. perhaps we will run into each other in a class or something.
