    Love, Academia and Success

    @Adelaide9216 people are getting married older and older nowadays. You are, in no respect, out of time or ruled out from having romantic experiences. <3 Be patient with yourself. And life. One thing at a time.

    Rent is ridiculous. Studios start at around $800 USD, and those are bare minimum apartments. You can probably find something in your price range, but unless you're willing to consider roommates, it's gonna be a little ways from campus. As far as social life, there is always plenty to do. Denver is a decent sized city. But it's also fairly expensive. You won't find free or cheap events very often. Also, there's been a strange uptick in violence over the last 6 months, so if you're female, you'll wanna be careful walking by yourself (especially at night). Public transit is pretty hit or miss. The lightrail (train) is pretty good, but limited where it goes. The busses are abysmal. And because marijuana is legal here, a LOT of people smoke. To the extent that certain parts of the city have that skunky odor. Colorado itself is beautiful, but Denver has been my least favourite part of it by far. That said, DU is a lovely campus and has some phenomenal resources.

    Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    @FishNerd, It's the worst. I have a month longer than you on my thesis, but I'm losing it. I need to care about it... but right now I just don't.

    How did you find TheGradCafe?

    A friend of mine who is a year ahead in her studies mentioned it as she was waiting for her results and I remembered and looked it up later.

    Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    The last two or three years my top choice school announced the first week of February. I still haven't heard anything and it's driving me nuts. Subsequently, I am driving everyone else around me insane. I'm taking a class on Levinas and I don't understand any of it. Also, I got accepted to a PhD in January... and my focus since then has been awful. I can't concentrate on anything. But I have to.

    The Positivity Thread

    A POI at my top choice program told me I have a "rich and full file" which is encouraging. I've been exercising more regularly and eating better. I've got a date next week. And I'm pretty sure I aced my midterms.

    PhD Applications Fall '18 Season

    ...I think they'd take no one over someone they initially wanted to reject. Plenty of programs don't accept students every year.

    PhD Applications Fall '18 Season

    ...why do some schools take so long to notify rejections? If a school didn't want a student, wouldn't telling them that right away be the kind/sensible/easy thing to do? Why notify rejections eons after acceptances?

    It entirely depends on the part of town. If you're downtown, it's totally fine. But if you're further out, it can be problematic. The lightrail (train) is great, but there are parts of town (like mine) where it doesn't go. And the bus system is very hit or miss.

    If it helped, my application explicitly said it was awaiting materials and my transcript was missing

    I'm a Master's student in the Religious Studies department. Denver is hella expensive. All of it. Like, you're talking studios starting at $750. Rent. Groceries. All of it is gonna cost you an arm and a leg. If you can handle having a roommate, I sincerely suggest you get one, or two or three. Most people I know have several roommates. Or they live outside of the city and commute in.

    I'm not at the Korbel School, but I'm a DU student. If any of you have questions about Denver, feel free to hit me up!

    I found out own my own, just checking my app to see if a decision had been rendered. But when I got a hold of them to fix it they said I've got a great app. So that's encouraging.
