The last mother of my soul, so far...GMU, that is, the questor after my alum riches. ("In my day, we didn't refer to buildings as Research 1!"--and my womanfriend lived in a campus trailer for two academic years...the first year with a pretty remarkable set of women...the second set not quite as remarkable)

Will be missing it all, but wouldn't mind not missing it if I could.

My brother got his law degree there.

I considered that...but the law school at that time was obsessed with right-wing economic law. It was possible to not emphasize that as a law student there, but that was the school for such. Sadly, the Antioch School of Law was gone by the time I was ready, having become the U of DC SOL and then lost accreditation. I did briefly enter the Conflict Management program at GMU after the BA.
