Amalia222 Posted February 9, 2011 Share Posted February 9, 2011 So most of us in the humanities have a bit of a wait to go, probably two more weeks or so at the least, so I thought it might be fun to hear what other people's best and worst case scenarios are. Here's mine: BEST CASE SCENARIO I get into one of the top three schools (Florida State, Houston, or USC), I get full funding with a TA ship and tuition waiver, including a stipend for housing (a girl can dream!!). Freed of all worries, I can now spend my summer doing whatever I want--namely, taking a scuba diving trip. A month before school starts, I'd move to my new digs and adopt a cat from a shelter to keep me company on all those long nights of studying. WORST CASE SCENARIO I don't get into any of my ten schools. I must now find a full time job. I may also have to spend my entire summer studying to retake the GREs, since my GRE scores expire after this year (please, please, anything but the GREs!!! I'll do whatever you want!!! Just no more!!!). I must continue to live with my parents, and possibly get a teaching credential for California, since I cannot afford to live anywhere else at the moment. Try again, to ten more less desirable schools the following year. Cry. :-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
