Sweet news from Brandeis

Alex has a place at Brandeis next year and an offer for financial aid that makes it doable. He sees Mr. Shipman tonight at BFC and will talk with his coach, Gamal Mahmoud, about continuing to train with him. There's a quiet confidence about him that I so admire. He was sanguine on Tuesday about not getting into the dream school, Somerville College, Oxford, and on Wednesday, he was calm when he got the acceptance from Brandeis, the real school. He may have choices to make, when we hear from the Ivy in April, but, for now, all is well.
