If you're sitting with me and tell one story starting with "my husband/boyfriend/fiancé" I don't want to be your friend or get to know you at all

    I hear there's a great site called 4chan with lots of young, sexy, wealthy bachelors.

Okay, so the application is due November 1st, but it's not even up yet. Is it normal to give only a one-month timeframe for an application?

    I did have one school I applied to not put up the application until October. It's unlikely to be drastically different from your other applications, so just do your best to get it ready with what you already know.

    Last year I ended up having to email the department because they forgot to put up the application. I think that as long as classwork has started you're safe to email them and ask if the application should be up.

Three weeks in and I'm adjusting to the workload and all the changes after a 13 year hiatus. Grateful that I decided to pursue my masters and I think I'm going to make it.

    It's only been 3 years for me, so I can't imagine! Good for you! I'm finding it challenging getting back into things, too, but I think I'll make it as well....

I'm drowning in reading. I figured taking 7 classes would be a challenge, but it is HARD to keep everything straight.

    The credit system/the way things are weighted is a little different here.

    Yes, dont hesitate to ask for time off. Professors seem to always be very understanding in these situations. I had an appendectomy only a few weeks into freshman year of college. Different situation of course but the professors were amazingly understanding. I am very sorry for your loss.
