  1. Advice on acceptance

    I was in the same boat a few days ago actually! One of my professors recommended that I email the school that had given me an offer and to ask for an extension to accept/decline. They were really nice and agreed. You've already accepted, but in the future if you or anyone else reading this ever runs across this situation again, I think asking for an extension is also a good idea.
  2. Anyone starting Carleton in the upcoming winter semester? Which program? And where do you plan on living - residence (Leeds) or off-campus?
  3. Starting in the winter term..

    Thank you for the advice! I don't know why I'm freaking out about everything. Maybe it's because I no longer have to stress about whether I'll actually get in. I guess all that energy is now being used to panic about essentially everything else. I will definitely try your idea for setting a goal to talk to at least one new person everyday!! Hopefully it all works out.
  4. Sooo I got into grad school and I am over the moon because I never thought I even stood a chance...except now I'm starting to panick because I'd be starting in the winter term. My program has fall and winter entry. But I'm afraid that I might be the only 'new kid' entering this upcoming semester and that everyone has already formed their little groups having started in the fall semester. I'm generally a VERY shy and awkward person and I'd be moving to a completely different city. Kinda afraid of being super lonely when I get there. Can anyone that started in the winter session offer any advice or tips?
