I got an acceptance e-mail from Hacker School last night after a short written application and 2 interviews. Hacker School is a workshop for programmers. It aims to be a safe environment for people at different skill levels to come together and learn. You spend 3 months in New York working by yourself or collaborating with other like-minded people on whatever projects that interest you. It might sound kind of self indulgent, but so is graduate school in some sense. 

They accept a very diverse group of people from what I've read. Maybe I'll meet another bioinformatician there. I am looking forward to seeing how this goes.

Now I just have to finish writing this thesis...
