yearley Posted March 29, 2014 Share Posted March 29, 2014 I'm 3/3 for EdD/PhD higher ed programs at GWU, UMCP, and William and Mary. Here's my problem: instead of having a mindset of "I got this because I'm awesome," I wonder if it's because they didn't have any other better candidates or if they felt bad for me or they just needed to get a butt in the seat. Clearly these reasons probably aren't true. And I probably was admitted because my research interests aligned very well with 1 or 2 of the faculty members. But in spite of that, I still think "they just didn't have anyone better." Anyone else have this kind of a defeatist, impostor syndrome kind of attitude? I can be proud of others but I can't be proud of me. matrix 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
