  1. I just really need to vent. So, I’m a second year grad student and uprooted my established life to be in a new city with no friends. With my last cohort, everyone was awesome, got along well, and very social with each other. You could basically see if people wanted to do something on any given day and you would definitely get a few people to hang out. I mistakenly thought this new cohort would be the same. It’s been a year now, and I feel horribly isolated and have no real friends locally. I’m a pretty social person and down for whatever, but nobody in my cohort really wants to hang out at all. It’s awful. Yeah, I get that people are busy, so am I. But over the course of a year, I have tried to get people together to hang out, drink, play games, you name it. Of all the times I’ve suggested stuff, I’ve managed to get people in my cohort to hang out ONE TIME. And I’ve made countless suggestions over the year. Maybe I suck? I haven’t developed enough rapport? I have no clue. But it’s awful. Has anyone experienced this with their department??? Please tell me I’m not alone I’m feeling this way. #feelinghellaisolatedandsad
  2. Me and my friend have applied for PhD this application season. Recently, I learned that she got accepted to Harvard, whereas I got rejected from most programs and have no offers yet. We have similar profile , prepared for the application together, and even asked the same prof for rec. letter I dont envy her, but cannot share her happiness and dont know how to react. What would you do if you had similar situation? So crushed :/
  3. Hi! Anyone going to Faulkner University for their masters in Speech Pathology next month?!?! Let’s be friends!! :)
  4. There isn't a thread for Queen's yet, so here goes. I will (most likely) be attending Queen's in the fall, and I thought perhaps those of you who would be going there could join me in a discussion on the following topics: moving to Kingston finding a place to live size of the program you'll be attending next steps cool places to hang out and anything else interesting Okay... GO!
  5. 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?
