  1. I don't think that using a racial identifier is the problem here. what is really the problem is the petty, self-absorbed, and soul-less tone of the original post. i guess the other poster could have used the term "priviledged people's problems" rather than "white people's problems" but either way the basic idea is the same and is right on point, in my opinion.
  2. "he would be the trailing spouse" -- you sound pretty cold and competitive. i suggest that you consider whether or not you and your boyfriend are actually in love with each other. and if not, then do him a favor and break up with him.
  3. oh no... red ink is very bad. i'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but by signing your admissions letter in red ink you have cast a shadow over your entire future. but there is one way to reverse the effect of the red ink. you must gather thousands of pens containing black or blue ink. you must break open each pen and empty the ink into a bathtub. once the bathtub is completely full with either blue or black ink you must get in the tub and soak for 11 hours and 19 minutes. after 3 hours have passed you begin the chanting. "i did something bad please forgive me." repeat this phrase
  4. they've really put you in kind of an impossible situation. therefore, i think it's ok if you accept and then later pull out based on lack of funding. i don't know much about etiquette for this whole process... but jeez, come on, the idea that you could be "blacklisted" and that this could "haunt you your entire life" seems ridiculous to me. i agree with pops.
  5. yeah... i totally get what you're saying. i was joking in my post anyway.... i'd never actually do any of that and i haven't bought books for the courses already etc. i just wanted to lighten the mood of this forum. the feeling of my future being in the hands of strangers is an awful feeling especially when i'm passionate about this and know i would make an amazing art therapist and not getting accepted this year is not going to deter me after i've finally realized what i want to do in life. i'll just apply to other programs next year. like you, i applied to the school in the city in whic
  6. I've already bought my books for the courses even though I haven't heard back yet whether or not I've been accepted into the program. I got an apartment near campus. I've told everyone I'm going to grad school. If they reject me I've decided that I'm still going to attend classes. I will show up and participate just like everyone else. If they kick me out of the classes then I will have a pretend lesson outside on the lawn, right outside of the classroom. If they kick me off campus, I will stand near the entrance of the school pretending to give a lecture on the subject I wish to study
  7. you've already been accepted... wear whatever the hell you want! flaunt it. ripped jeans and a belly shirt. saying, "hey there school, look what you're gettin'. a piece of THIS! AWW YEAH."
  8. I haven't heard back from a school either. It is driving me nuts as well. I've been out in the real world working and living for 8 years since graduating college. I feel your pain - waiting for an answer that is going to drastically affect the rest of your life is enough to drive someone insane. But I have to say that I don't see going to grad school as making a huge sacrifice. What is it exactly that you feel you are sacrificing by trying to go to grad school? Grad school is a priviledge. Being out in the real world working a 9 to 5 is what I call a sacrifice. Nobody truly wants that
