Also included in the month of October was a trip to Oakland. Tara is touring grad schools, and we went up to check out Samuel Merritt. The school was pretty cool. It was also pretty ghetto. Some buildings didn't even have elevators. I don't know how they get away with that. But everyone was walking around with cool identification cards, and they could get into buildings that we had to be buzzed in to. I have no desire to go to Samuel Merritt, but after i saw those identification cards, and how cool they looked, I'm thinking about applying.
