Tough Year

Filed under: Personal — by teofilo @ 4:34 pm

So I got a letter today from my first-choice graduate school telling me that I didn’t get in.  I’m none too pleased with this, obviously, but there’s not much I can do except wait to hear from the other three schools I applied to.  I’m thinking I probably should have applied to more schools, but what’s done is done.



  1. Sorry to hear it, Teo. Good luck with the remaining three.

  2. I’m sorry to hear this. The advice I received for doctoral grad school was not to apply to anywhere I didn’t think I’d want to go (so a small number of applications was ok), but I don’t know if that really applies to shorter programs.

  3. My assumption going in was that it did, which is why I only applied to four, but now I’m not so sure.

  4. That sucks. Sorry to hear it. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you for the other ones.

    I didn’t get into my first-choice grad school either. And then I interviewed for a job there this past December, and they rejected me AGAIN.
