I thought this episode was excellent--I particularly loved the juxtaposition of Paris' reactions when she first learned she was accepted to a graduate school as compared to her reaction after learning she had been accepted to a number of school.  She went from ecstasy to agony within minutes! Too funny to watch.  I also loved the last scene with Luke explaining how he had gone onto Craig's List and found another jeep that she could swap the engine out of--that is TOTAL proof he still loves and cares for her. 

In the opening scene when Babette and Miss Patty saw Lorelai come into the diner I wish they could have included them more in the scene, but Kirk's diatribe about the stool was top notch.

All in all, one of the season's best episodes, if not the best.

I mean if Paris and Doyle can seem to stick it out while dealing with after college issues, why not Rory and Logan?

Perhaps because Rory and Logan and Paris and Doyle are all completely different individuals, with different thoughts, feelings, needs and lives?

In my view, Rory has always had her journalistic dream, right back from day one of the series.  That she had absolutely no hesitation whatsoever when choosing the NYT fellowship over Logan/SF was very telling to me.  Her career dream is still very much alive, at least at that point in the show.  Why is it so wrong for Rory to choose her career, at this time in her life when she is still young, and just about to embark on her career? Yes, it is possible to have it all - if you are willing to work at it.  But, timing is also very important and if Rory feels that this is the time for her to focus on her career first, that should be her right and shouldn't send so many people into a tizzy. As I said, Rory has always been very focused on her career and this shouldn't come as such a surprise.  In the end, it is her life (fictional, as it is) and her choice. From a storyline pov, it seems very true to who Rory has always been.

I see what you're saying, but I edited your comments from above:

"In my view, Paris has always had her medical doctor dream, right back from day one of her introduction.  That she had absolutely no hesitation whatsoever when choosing a Master's over Doyle was very telling to me."

I thought this episode was pretty good. I think Logan should have been in it at least on the phone or something. They only mentioned him once. I loved the thing with Kirk and Lorelai. It was great! But I think that Babette and Miss Patty would have said something more to Lorelai. Something concerning them getting back together or something. It's not like them to just basically sit there. I loved the thing with Paris. It's so her to be all excited then come back to reality and totally freak out.

And, why shouldn't this "send people into a tizzy"?  Is it any different from Rory taking time off from school, dating a rich guy, her cooking, going to gym, lack of reading, even the style of her hair, all choices that she had a right to make and all things that sent various people into some tailspin worthy tizzies.

But Lane was always someone that Rory went to when she didn't go to Lorelai.... Since she's been in college, she's left Lane behind.

I agree.  I don't see why it has to be one or the other for Rory.  And Logan's said already that he'd factor Rory in.  It seems to me that he'd be willing to follow her just as Doyle is willing to follow Paris.  Rory can still follow her journalistic dream and have the man she loves.  I don't see why she should have to be alone in order to focus on her career.

There have been times in past seasons Lane didn't show up for at least two episodes in a row. †If you look at season 1, I think she was not in 5 episodes (at least), though they weren't in a row, and some of those episodes she wasn't even mentioned. †
