I've been away from my cpu for a while...Thanks for the well wishes everybody.
To answer those questions...yes I would probably still go even if they don't offer me any money (but I don't think I'll be put in that situation)
No, unfortunately I won't be at the open house next week. I just started a new job and can't get time off yet. I wish I could go but I'll just have to visit some other time.
Besides, after BlueSweater's lengthy description of his visit, I think I know enough about the Howard campus well enough for now
