  1. Hello everyone, Thank you for all of the advice, it is really helpful! Keeping it a secret for so long was really really hard, if I had to do it over I would probably just tell everyone openly. I will take what everyone said and apply it next time I see them. I will just say i did it on a whim and I wasn't expecting to get in. As long as they don't hate me for life I will be okay On a side note, everyone on gradcafe is so supportive, kind and quick to reply! I feel like a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders *sigh of relief*
  2. Okay so this is my problem: I applied to grad school this year (masters) and I chose not to tell my friends about it. First, because I wasn't expecting to get in and second, because I really didn't want to make a big deal about it. This may sound like a superficial issue, but we are a really close knit group--so keeping such a big thing secret is like betraying the friendship. So anyway I found out I got in and I am feeling super guilty about it all. I feel like I should have told them, maybe we all could have applied together or at least they would have known. Now I am confronted with the task of telling them. i am afraid they're going to be like "so why didn't you tell us in the first place?" "did you not trust us, why are you secretive?" etc. etc. It's really putting alot of stress on me and I am acting really rude and nervous around them. i don't know how to tell them! I feel so bad...to the point of I'm thinking of deferring admission (if possible) so that I would just avoid this fiasco. Yeah, right? I sound insane. But I really value my friendships and I don't want to strain it over a secret like this!!! Need advice, food for thought, please?
  3. Can you apply for the scholarships you mentioned without being nominated? (I know the date has passed, but just out of curiosity)
