SO applied to a different program and the school is both our top choice. A few acceptances and rejections from his department are already out and he didn't hear anything so far. We want to do whatever we can right now to increase his chance of acceptance. Will emailing either his or my department (or my POI) help in anyway? Will it hurt?
Hi everyone. I recently got accepted into Washington State University, which is a VERY small town: Pullman, WA. I got into their Materials Science PhD program with full tuition waiver and a $2100 monthly stipend on top of that. I want to get a PhD because I'm passionate about research and liked the program when I visited their recruitment session. I also got word that I've been accepted into the Applied Masters Program in Materials Science at the University of Washington, which has no funding and I'd be paying out of state tuition. The catch is that my boyfriend, who's in web development/software engineering, would have difficulty finding a job in Pullman. Obviously Seattle would be much better for his sake. My logical mind says that going to Pullman is a no brainer, since the program is a good fit and I'd be getting a PhD. However, I could apply to UW PhD program after completing their Masters program, and UW was my first choice. It's also worth noting that I had a pretty unstable / abusive childhood and my current boyfriend is very emotionally supportive. Thoughts?
So yeah, I broke up with my girl this summer after dating since high school. To be honest, I think I did it more to play the field than anything else. I told her that we just weren't meant to be, but here it is months later and I am totally a mess. The other students in my department are okay enough, but they have their own lives and interests and it isn't at all like undergrad. She was the love of my life and here I am sitting in the middle of a big school feeling totally isolated. Getting her back is probably not a good option since she is pretty angry and is probably moving on anyway. My question here is how do I get myself out of this feeling and into the grad school experience?
