You most definitely should apply to jobs.  Unemployment is real.  Don't put all your eggs in one basket, as it were.

Oh I have a job now, I just don’t like it ?

?

tbh the Northwestern rejections strike a really odd tone, because the first paragraph is literally "you are denied entry" and then the second one goes on to be like " this decision is hard to convey because we respect your intellectual ambition and wish you success"

signed, another linguistics rejection lmao

  • Nice letter, but overall pretty disheartening. GPA is MA, excellent recs, years of teaching experience, publications, national conferences. Maybe it's because I haven't been knighted yet, and my martyrdom is still up in the air.

          Reject the university before they reject you. I wish I could do that.

Interesting...there was a similar response posted today under what seems like a different field. Possible troll? Obscure meme?

I'm glad they checked that poster's salty behind although there is might be some truth to her allegations. Someone else posted something to that effect.

Duke University English, PhD (F19) Rejected via Website on 29 Jan 2019 A 29 Jan 2019
  • report spam
  • Most of us on Grad Cafe: "I want to get an English PhD at Duke!" Duke University: "LOL NO."

lol sorry not happening

That's me! Haha. Had to introduce a little levity into the English results thread-- 16 Duke rejections in a row posted on there! Knew I probably wasn't getting accepted to Duke anyway, and now I can continue hating their basketball team with zero guilt.

As a Carolina girl (undergrad) and, therefore, diehard Duke hater, recently thrilled to be going back to UNC for a PhD--we will take all the Duke hate we can! Hate with no guilt!

"Who do you think you are?" is my favourite quote from the ones above -

Ooooo.  Now that rejection has got to burn.  They really liked your application.  Took one conversation with you for the grad committee to be like:

This was one of my favorites from my daily perusal of the clinical psych results:

  • Generic mass email. 2 out of 3 rejections so far, gonna throw myself a failure party if I get a 3rd. You guys are invited. Bring pizza.

Don't worry dude, I'll get some pizza and liquor. You don't need Northwestern anyway.

As I ponder that being my next move, in anticipation of being rejected unanimously--maybe I need to start searching for jobs now. Reverse psychology the situation. That'll do it.

I notice an acceptance in your signature now. Were you looking at jobs when you posted this on the 25th?

Ha, no! ? I wish I could say that was the solution. I was sitting down for a full day of thesis-writing!
