The lower theory exam was pretty straightforward -- three exercises, with two on partwriting and one on harmonic analysis. I have a feeling that I actually did pretty well. According to the rumour mill, the number of students who passed the History exam was in the single digits one year, and this fact was confirmed by a professor today. I guess I'd better switch my focus from studying Mahler to studying rounded binary form.

There were about 150 new graduate students at orientation today, with most of them being in Music Education or Music Therapy. In second place were the various musicology fields and performance, and composition came in last place with five Masters students and one Doctoral student (I'm counting myself as a Masters student for now). In between the monotonous and tedious paperwork, I caught up with Jaime from Virginia Tech, who's here for Horn Performance. I also met Angela, a composition student who did her undergraduate work here, and Ian, an older man from Canada who relocated his family here so he could study guitar performance. There were a few other supporting characters whose names went straight through my sieve of a memory.

The location of my apartment is great, and the five minute walk from here to the music buildings is decorated with a large array of attractive sorority houses and co-eds. The trip is even shorter than when I lived in West and East AJ at Tech.
