    Anyone have any updates on Georgetown Neuro? It doesn't seem to be as popular on here

    Same Here. I truly care less now that I know how long ago interviews were sent out. It's more of an "about time" feeling at this point!

    Did anyone tried to discourage you from pursuing a PhD?

    Yes. 10000 times yes. first my parents tried to talk me out of a career that required a PhD, now they're pushing me to jump straight from undergrad into grad school. I had to find my voice quickly and really stick to my guns and what I want out of life.

    Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    Okay I am starting to get pretty irritated. I applied to 7 schools, got officially rejected from one and have heard nothing from the rest of them. It has been radio silence. I spent over $900 this season and these schools can't even provide me with a standardized rejection letter? I even emailed to check in on the status of my application and never received a response. I know I wasn't mean or anything in my email, I was very respectful and straight forward, so it can't be that. I don't know whats going on but it has really rubbed me the wrong way

    Good academic planners?

    I LOVE my To-Go Weekly Planner. Its small, simple, inexpensive (I spill a lot of coffee), and has different day layouts based on how you prefer to view your week!

    I would very much like to go into industry as well, even after my PhD. I guess part of my hesitation is that I now have to tell my mentors that I did not get into my schools. I've had a lot of failures in life, but they're not usually associated with my work. I assume this is a hump that a lot of us have to get over at this point in time, but boy was I not ready for it lol. It helps to know I'm not the only one!

    This is what I needed to hear. I worked very hard through undergrad to try and avoid taking time before my grad program, but it seems like I can't avoid it now

    What have you done in the years in between?? I get the feeling I'm about to be in the same boat soon and don't know if I should commit to a 2 year post-bac or try working for a year

    SO CU Anschutz sent me an email December 3rd saying they would be reviewing applications mid-December and I would be contacted after that if I receive an interview. I emailed them a few days ago to ask about my status and received an automated reply that their respondent would be back in the office today. I still haven't heard anything and really want to send a follow up email, but I kind of feel like I should wait...
