I’m glad I planned a last minute vacation this weekend so I can process my Chicago rejection on the beach!

Much better than my "work everyday so you can't think about anything else" plan which isn't very effective and definitely not any fun.

There are a few fellowships I'm thinking of applying to but rn I am so paralyzed thinking about decisions and the possibility of a shut-out that it's making me stressed to put the cart before the horse. Anyone else in this boat?

I have so many questions about this given that their big interview day is Feb 8. Are they gonna let us know as soon as we leave? Do they already know who they’re admitting and just inviting us to make sure we’re real people? 

People who interviewed last year at Notre Dame said that they received their decisions before boarding on their return flight. I'm guessing that they make notes during the visit and compare them before the 8th.

Yep, I am right there with you.

Also I haven't had the stamina to actually do the fellowship applications.  I don't have the emotional or mental energy to invest in anything else right now.

THIS. Exactly. My brain is like a deconstructed breakfast burrito right now.....a MESS. I’ve convinced myself that i’ll be face to face with a shut-out and without a back-up plan. Not really sure where to go from here lol.

Thanks! That’s both really exciting and nerve-wrecking...

I didn't realize it was only 5! One day last week I was out by 9:30am, so I feel better about that knowing it's only 5 haha

They must know that you are applying many places and that this is a trying time??? ?

Aw! If anything, I'll bet they had an empathetic laugh and moved on with whatever conversation they were having before. They already knew where else you were applying and there's no way a little email flub would impact their opinion of you. :)

Hi everyone! I was accepted into OSU's MA/PhD and, while I haven't officially accepted the offer, I'm pretty sure I'm will! I just wanted to say hi on here to anyone else who might be going to the visit day in April or who might want to chat about why they may or may not be accepting their offer. Also, if there's anyone like me who's almost for sure going, I'm already living in the Columbus area, (though I will be moving closer to campus if I accept the offer) and would be happy to give any advice about moving to Columbus or finding a place in Columbus at some point if that would be in any way helpful to anyone. Congrats to all who got in...I'm super excited to meet you!

I'm lactose intolerant ?

My Xanax and I will comfort each other... (Me to my therapist: "I just need something, you don't understand, my life flashes before my eyes every time I refresh my email." Her: "Alright, fine. I'll do this for you. But just this once.")

Trader Joes has this ahmazing coconut milk ice cream if you ever get a chance to try it. Goes well with Xanax, I’ve heard.

Last night I splurged on a pint of Ben & Jerry's (I usually don't budget for snacks of any kind, especially not pricey ones like that!). Hopefully it'll get me through the week!

Ooh, Phish Food? Ben & Jerry’s is worth it, this week.

I actually got Milk & Cookies, which is maybe my favorite ice cream in the entire world. Exactly what my heart needs this week.
