Cornell Deferred

August 11th, 2010 · 3 Comments

You may remember that Devon was accepted into the Cornell University Graduate Physics program. He wanted to spend the summer in Taiwan, studying Mandarin and immersing himself into another culture.

Well, he’s having so much fun that he doesn’t want to come back. He contacted Cornell, and told them he was enrolled in the University in Taiwan (which he is) and requested a one-year deferral. They agreed.

So he will remain in Taiwan through the winter.

Besides studying Chinese, he has met some people in the entertainment business that have him almost convinced he could be a model, actor and/or pop singer. I hope he doesn’t hit the ground too hard if reality disagrees…

    There’s nothing to say. He is 25 years old, and making his own decisions.

    I’m glad to hear he got the deferral instead of the boot. Hopefully, he’ll go there next year. And this year could be a lot of fun for him. (…maybe he’ll find a wife…)

    I think it’s great! You are only young once. Good luck to you Devon.
