What are you going to grad school for?
How many did you apply to?
How many did you get into?


Son just got outright rejection #3
Two waitlists
Only one out there unanswered.

He is not a happy camper
One rejection was the first choice school.



One sister in law, who was accepted to Yale grad school when she was first married, but didn't go. They would have had to live between NYC and New Haven and decided to just live in the city for his job.
She just now took the bar exam, after going to law school with 3 kids at home.
She said, call the school you liked best that wait listed you. Tell them you loved the school and would absolutely accept is they took him.

It was the only two months of clinical experience that was the problem. He would have to find a hospital job to reapply next year.




Eyeball is still there. It is seeing some. Not great. Drops every hour or so for the rest of the day.
The blood cleared out , not it is just foggy. At first I was looking through a huge blood thing. That is gone. It has only been 2 hours.


I have been ok ed for watching TV. No dog walking yet. It is pouring out anyway.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

Edit: and Good Luck D'name!



I feel the same way.

I grew up with snow, we used to get tons of it, not so much now. I still like the snow. Yeah if it gets all dirty and nasty it gets annoying, but for the most part I like the snow. My husband spent 9 years in the south, no snow. He is sooooo happy every time it snows!

Morning all. How are you feeling dname?

Ver1 and 2 are up but 3 is sleeping so the girls are playing unsupervised in the writing corner and I'm on the bed with the laptop because the baby monitor is in the girls' room and Ver3 is not very loud when he wakes up.

I added the eyeball onto the other post.

Well, it hurt enough to take tylenol and that cured it.

Still have to go for the followup tomorrow, early. Not crazy early.
But tell that to my intestines.
After taking imodium from 5am on, I still just went.

Constipation makes you feel bad, but at least you can safely leave the house!


Oh, it is lunch time.

Sorry!

But I'll still post it!
Because I'm evil!


Now everyone with serious health problems can stick pins in the voodoo doll that looks like me. I know I would, if I was them.

I'm going with "the intent of a PhD" in organic chemistry. I don't have a masters or anything, but the way most of the chemistry programs work is you apply with intent to get a PhD, and then if for some reason you don't make it through, you usually fall back and get a masters, and then if you still want the PhD you can go to another university with a masters and get out of most of the basic chem coursework.

I only got applications fully submitted to three schools. I was working on some others, but I didn't have as much interest in a lot of the other schools, and it was a huge PITA getting three professors to all get letters of recommendation submitted to the three schools.
I got accepted into all three...but I really think it's a lot easier to get into grad school for a physical science right now. The economy has made all the other schools pretty tough from what I've heard from my friends.


Glad you seem to be doing well.


Sorry to hear the son is having a rough time.

d'name - glad everything went well and you can see out of your eye!

I'm having an all around crappy day.

Even though I was late, I was still in a decent mood. Until an 8:30 meeting with my entire group. Where my boss wouldn't let me finish a single sentence without interrupting me - because he was being a complete jackass.

Of course, he apologizes after the meeting to me alone, after making me look like a fool in front of our whole group.

jerkface.

Just make sure you thank him for apologizing to you in front of an office gossiper. Everyone will know shortly thereafter.

Uggh! I'm so sorry kdc! I agree mention it off hand to the office gossip. "Yeah, that was total gristle, but he did pull me aside after to apologize."
