A Long Awaited Hope

I just opened my email, read this, had a heart-attack, and then ran laps around my backyard. And now…bourbon!

Dear Benjamin,

It is my pleasure to inform you that you have been accepted into the DU/Iliff Joint PhD Program in Religious and Theological Studies.  Congratulations!  The admissions committee is working to formalize financial aid offerings, so you should expect to receive an official letter of acceptance very soon.  In the meantime, please accept this informal notice of acceptance, with our congratulations. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions or concerns.  We are excited by the prospect of you joining us in Denver and look forward to working with you soon.
Best wishes,
