Headed back home from College Station

Without going into too much details all I have to say is great campus, great professors, great people. I think the interview went well and I'm optimistic about my chances. If I get accepted I won't hesitate to accept.

Hey be safe the roads are going to be NASTY today all across your path through the South.

Don't let people who are "too cool" talk College Station down. I live in central Austin, the self-proclaimed captial of cool, but have my eye on some land out half an hour from CS... if I could get a job there I'd move in a heartbeat.

If I could do my current job in CS I'd do it in a heartbeat. Cheap cost of living, no big city traffic bullshite, great golf, not a bad bar and restaurant scene for a place of its size.

re: Headed back home from College Station
I posted in your other thread and I'll say it again here: I did the Bush School master's program (international affairs, nat sec focus) awhile back and I'd be happy to answer any questions you've got.

As a disclaimer, however, I've heard it's changed a fair bit over the last few years. First off, the dean position has been a bit unstable: unfortunately Chilcoat had to resign and eventually passed from cancer, then there was an interim dean for awhile, then Ryan Crocker came on but left fairly quickly to serve as the ambassador to Afghanistan (on another note, he got a DUI a year or two back), then somebody else came on, and that's about as much as I kept up with. I also heard that they were considering a dramatic increase to student enrollment, but I don't know if that ever came to pass. Throw in the inevitable faculty turnover and it might be a totally different experience. Still, glad to give whatever insight I can.

Yeah Crocker is back though. And they mentioned the growth of the school and wanting to accept more. I think they said they anticipated bringing in 90 students for the Fall semester. I'm not sure how many 2nd year students will be graduating from this year though.

But yeah, College Station was busier than I expected, and I mean that in a positive way. When I hear college town I don't expect a whole lot of activity, and flying into CS there seemed to be nothing but farmland for miles around and it was the smallest airport I have ever seen so I was initially thinking "oh my god, what I have gotten myself into" but there was a good bit of activity which I enjoyed.

I've never actually flown into Easterwood. I imagine all you see is flat pasture then Kyle Field

re: Headed back home from College Station
Back in the day, Continental used to give Elite members some sort of milage multiplier for making multiple stops. My old man and his friends in sales used to fly from Houston to CS to Dallas and then to wherever they were actually headed to get double multipliers on their mileage. I think they discontinued the multiplier sometime prior to being purchased by United. I wonder if you can track an associated decrease in the number of passengers shuffled through Easterwood.

re: Headed back home from College Station
I fly in and out of Easterwood all the time. I can usually fly to Dallas for about the same as the cost of fuel to drive up. It's not a bad little airport considering it used to be a very small military airfield. I know the extension on the runway is first class because I was the superintendent on that job
