  1. Thanks for response, just saw it now. Still haven't applied. not comfortable just writing out all the i know about Asian American lives, except online. need more of a sense of authorship. i want a grad program to give me structure and something to aim for, since i need some structure. i've been familiar w/MAPS for years - have attended many of their in-person events that are open to the public.

  2. @TMP I know it's a little hard to know just what my struggles are based on what I've posted in this thread. My difficulties are very complex. If you'd like to hear more in a PM, let me know.
