What kind of graduate programs focus on User Experience Design?

What type of graduate programs focus on User Experience Design or HCI? Everyone seems to have a different name for it, and university sites are hard to navigate at best. I'm less interested in computer science degrees, but perhaps that all that is out there?

Keeping friendships in grad school?

As a doctoral student, how do you maintain friendships with non-academics? With all the lab work and time that goes into research, there isn't a lot of time for fun. And it seems that friends and family don't always understand it - especially for first-generation students from places where not everyone goes to college. Have any of you had this experience? What's hard about maintaining relationships with friends and family -- and how do you cope?

Grad Schools?

I have an undergrad degree in philosophy and a masters in education. Been doing Online courses for six years and I'm interested in going back to school. In the past few years I've been working on music, film, some psychogeography stuff, conceptual art development/pranks, making posters and on and on. Is anyone out there familiar with grad programs for folks who are all over the place with interests but lean toward the art/activist side?

Should graduate students buy houses? And if so, how?

Despite MetaFilter's members' fantastic advice for my boyfriend to choose MIT over GA Tech, my guy is most likely going to stay in Atlanta. He's talked about the possibility of buying a house in ATL, but living on a student stipend, and without substantial savings, how would that work? (He's curious, too, not just me.) Renting in Atlanta is expensive, so a house payment could very possibly be lower than rent . . . and we've heard sometimes people buy without down payments now . . . but we're not sure about the logistics. Any good info is appreciated. : )

Options when you don't get accepted to your first choice graduate school?

Graduate school acceptance. Or really, not. I need some advice from all of you over-educated metafilterites. What do you do when you don't get accepted to your first choice graduate school? Besides, obviously, not attend. Have any of you had any luck with reapplying, and if so, what did you change on your application to "do the trick?" Anyone have luck with taking classes as a non-matriculated student just to get your foot in the door? Any advice is much appreciated.
