PhDreams Posted December 30, 2012 Share Posted December 30, 2012 I think these two professors really want me to get into a decent program. They were my undergraduate and Master's research mentors. I guess that makes them sortof my science parents? Awwww.... That's super cute. Yeah, this is the first semester that I've actually had amazing faculty support. It's really great to have people to talk to about this stuff when no one at home can understand what you are talking about. I had a mini freak out when I started registering for apps, wondering if I really wanted to do this. I thought, I'm nothing like that nice collection of graduate students on everyone's website. What would my picture look like up there? I should just stay here on the ground and get a nice job. No, no, no, my younger self convinced me that I needed to go big or go home. Had to get the highest title. Shut up, younger self. I thought the same thing! I've been reading the cohort bios and seeing if I fit in with those departments. One school accepted someone from my current program last year and it made me say YIPPPEEEEE! until I read her bio and she seems a million times more amazing than me. Where did all this self-doubt come from? Who am I????? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
