I have a feeling they are waiting to see how many people are accepting what aid offers they have out now before issuing anything.
I've never been to Minneapolis, everybody tells me it is fantastic though; I'm in Boston right now and while I like the area I don't LOVE it. How does Minneapolis compare?
I did my UG in Boston, along with a few years post-UG. I liked it well enough when I was there, but looking back, it really wasn't that great.
I'm now in Minneapolis, and absolutely love it. Granted it's only been two weeks, so I'm probably not a reputable source, however, if you like the fact that people actually got out of the buildings in Boston, take that times ten out here. At least where I live (around the lakes) this is the case. The food is good, museums and theater seem very decent, and outdoor activities surpass Beantown.
I'm just amazed at the number of people I see outside. Maybe because they've all been trapped inside all winter. But it really is stunning. I can't wait to move into our house on June 1 and get organized/moving.
