It seems to me that the more I want to hear from my grad schools, the more spam I receive, leading to dashed hopes multiple times daily.
Cue aggressive unsubscribing from pretty much everything.
Now I just end up logging into my applications several times a week and glaring at the lack of updates.
WHY MUST YOU MAKE ME WAIT, GRAD SCHOOLS
Haha oh my gosh my evolution professor is so sweet and supportive and I just want to hug her??
So the running theme when people give me feedback on my statement of purpose for grad school is this:
*vague gesturing at summary of research* “I have no idea what any of this means. But I’m impressed!”
I hope the committees feel the same way. :|
ok. 100% done with personal statement. 20% done with research proposal and it’s due in 5.5 hours. AT LEAST I HAVE A SNAZZY TITLE OK
75% done with my personal statement for the NSF application due on the 8th. 0% done with the hard part, which is the research proposal. Ahahaha help.
Sending good vibes, Jill!
Thanks dear! The thing is, I feel like I can represent myself just fine, but every time I’m asked to do so on paper—to make a cohesive narrative out of what has been kind of a clusterfuck of a life at times—I kind of…bluescreen…a bit. DOES NOT COMPUTE.
