Supernovasky Posted January 26, 2012 Share Posted January 26, 2012 I learned yesterday I was rejected from UT-Austin. UT-Austin was my top choice, because it is where my girlfriend just learned she got her new job at. We've been together for a year now. This one hurts. It means that not only did I not get into UT-Austin (and probably won't get into Ann Arbor either, considering that Ann Arbor is MORE competitive than Austin), but it means that I'll be living quite far away from her for 5 years, and pretty much means that we are breaking up this coming weekend when she moves. I'm having second thoughts as to whether any professor at UC Boulder shares a dime in my research interests. I feel like Wash-Seattle is my last, best hope, its got the biggest quantitative Socio department, but Seattle is, from what I'm told, just as hard to get into and selective as Austin. I'm now worried I won't get into ANY schools but LSU, my state school, in which case, I might take another year, work, figure something else out to do, and apply again. applyingfromtexas and alleykat 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
