Looks like I'll be spending my summer down in the San Diego area. I found out today that I was offered the internship at Aperio. Since I currently have nothing else on the table, and since the pay is good, the work looks fairly interesting, and I need the money, the probability approaches 1 that I will accept the offer. This of course means that I'll have to find a place to live down there, but I should be able to manage that. This definitely lifts my spirits.
I have officially accepted the internship.
