Acceptance into Stanford University

The other day I had the pleasure of receiving an email from Stanford University to the effect that I had been admitted to the Masters’ Program in the Computer Science Department beginning Autumn Quarter 2009-2010. I have not written anything about my application on this blog so far, but in fact I applied to some programs of computer science departments at graduate schools in the United States last year. I have been really excited about this result.

Though I have already a master’s degree in Electronic Engineering in Japan, I believe that this masters’ program at Stanford University is quite a good preparation for my long-term goal. Therefore, I made a decision to accept the offer. My family and friends are also very pleased with the admittance, and some of my friends are planning to give me a send-off party.

These days have been very hectic because of some procedures for my transition to the United States. This is the first time that I have experienced studying abroad, and I will prepare for my new life as carefully as possible so as to make a good start this coming September.

    Congratulations on your acceptance to Stanford! It’s a wonderful school (and difficult to gain acceptance to) in a terrific part of the United States. I’m sure you will really enjoy your time there. I have enjoyed reading your blog!

    Hello, Ms. Arlyn Freed.

    Thank you for giving me your congratulatory message. And I am also very pleased to hear that you have enjoyed reading my blog. Although I might have little time to write my blog at Stanford, I will continue to do it. Since I would like to further improve my English, I would be glad if you would give me some advice on my English through this blog.
