  1. Don't feel bad. I felt upset when I got rejected from my school too, but it turned out okay. I just got into another great school today. Your only biggest competition in life is yourself.
  2. Looks like I'll be joining my sister at CUNY's PhD program. Suck it, Temple. ;)

  3. I went to NYU for my Master's in Philosophy and Lit Studies, but I was a commuter living in Delware with my uncle I did really well in grad school. I got a 3.9 GPA, but I feel like my professors were always so busy or nonchalant. To be honest, every time I would email them to make an appointment, THEY WOULD NEVER RESPOND! It's an inside joke here at NYU that if someone emailed a professor with a question, they would respond six months after the semester was over. I'm graduating next month, and as you might know, I deferred my PhD admission to Temple because it was unfunded. I'd like to
  4. No offense man, but aren't you that angry dude from that chatroom?
  5. That's a good idea. I did call NYU, and I'm just waiting to hear back on how I can improve my application.
  6. I have no idea. I am super bummed about it. I don't think I've ever been this depressed before. But I overheard one of the professors saying that NYU rarely accepts its MA students into the PhD program. I did an independent research paper in college, but I don't think that's enough. I would like to gain more research experience, but I'm not sure where to start. I actually also want to get my MA thesis on Homer published, but I don't know where to go. I feel so lost...
  7. Hey, all. So, I got into Temple's PhD program in Philosophical Studies with no funding. I actually asked them if I could defer my admission for a year, and they said I had that option. I'm a grad student at NYU getting my MA in Philosophy and Lit. I'm graduating in two weeks. Sadly, I didn't get into any other PhD programs, and I feel that it's a bit silly to pay for a PhD. My adviser told me it would be best to defer admission and reapply in the fall. So, what should my plan be to enhance my application? Here are my stats: Undergraduate GPA at Rutgers: 3.751 Graduate GPA
  8. Does anyone else have a severe napping problem? I just awoke from a 5 hour nap. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME? :o

      Lol that's me I will nap when I come home then I'm up all night

  9. I've heard some pretty good things about Magoosh. It's at your own pace and the prices aren't as astronomical as those of Kaplan and Princeton Review. Check it out: www.magoosh.com
  10. How do you get rid of a clingy neighbor who stops by uninvited every day to eat your free food?

      LOL. That is hilarious. Yeah, he's unemployed but takes a few classes for graphic design. His days are spent constantly calling and texting people to hang out with him. He has this terrible anxiety at the thought of being alone.

      No is amazingly powerful.

      Poor dude. I hope he finds a way to handle it. You've been kind to be as available to him as you have, and you deserve to set clear boundaries so you have time for yourself.

  11. Whoa, whoa, whoa, Ms. Lippy! The part in the story I don't like is that the little boy gave up looking for Happy after an hour. He didn't put posters up or anything, he just sat on the porch like a goon and waited. That little boy's gotta think: 'You got a pet. You got a responsibility.' If your dog is lost, you don't look for an hour then call it quits; you get your ass out there and you find that fuckin' dog!

      Got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tights, hope I don't get in a fight, ooooooh... Back to school.
