Remember the Dentistry school fiasco?

Well, I emailed the history department of that Uni to be sure that they have a complete file for me, or to at least see what I needed to overnight to them, and I got an ambiguous response:

"I'm sorry you've been caused this anxiety. Your application file
is complete and has been reviewed. Admission offers will go
out next week. Could you please advise the School of Dentistry
to forward your documents, whatever they are, to me via the intramural
address below."

If it's complete, and has been reviewed, then presumably they don't need whatever the Dentistry department has? And if it has been reviewed, and admission offers go out next week, does that mean that one may go out to me?

This University didn't excite me so much. (That has nothing to do with the mix-up, it's a small Uni, in the middle of nowhere, with fewer opportunities to do stuff, or go places other than cowfields). However, there *is* one god-like professor there who is sexy as hell (and I mean that in the most polite academic sense of course). He dives for pirate shipwrecks and has his own boat.

I bet the University are nice to him, because one too many ill-scheduled seminars or contentious meetings, and he can hop onto his boat and become a pirate. He's only teaching at Uni because he wants to. He takes life on his own terms.

He is the dreadpirateprofessor.

I'm amused by how you semi-randomly created such a cool life for this guy -- especially since the post started off with the bizarre dentist school story. Perhaps dreadpirateprofessor could sail on over to the Dentistry School and personally retrieve your application? Just tell him to beware the cows...

P.S. I'm super-excited that you're super-excited about Rice! May your days be snow-less and cow-less!

Created? How could his life be anything but awesome? He's a professor of Piratology.

I should call him up and have him loot the Dentistry school. Any idea of how much those machines they use fetch on the black market?

Lots, I bet.

When I hear about dreadpirateprofessors who go diving through pirate shipwrecks on their own boats, I think "maybe I chose the wrong field."

Don't worry, I get moments like that, too, when other people do supercool stuff. As cool as pirates are, they will never help me in getting a place on a rocket or allow me to find the cure for AIDS.

Steal it? Sure. But not find it myself.

I'm slightly confused...

If it's out in the middle of nowhere, and there are cowfields, how does this awesome Professor have his own boat? :P

You can always go cow tipping! :D

I suppose the cowfields are next to the water? There's a huge lake (one might say it is great, but I feel that's stretching it a bit) next to the University, and I think a river runs past, as well.

I know!

Oh dear. We have become the awkward teens with a crush on the cute new teacher.

I really want to know what this university is!
Actually by the end I want to know what *all* your universities are, especially ones with anthropological maritime history. *plots future*
