nixipixi Posted February 16, 2017 Share Posted February 16, 2017 Ok, I'll start by saying that in many ways I am very lucky. I know that. I got accepted to some of my top choices this season, and I am very excited to be starting a PhD this coming fall. However... The rejection of some grad schools keeps me wondering...why wasn't I good enough? The issue seems even more absurd since I know for a fact that I am not a typical candidate for various reasons (I've also been told that by every interviewer/POI I had talked to), so I may not be everyone's 'cup of tea'. My friends tell me I am being ridiculous... I got accepted to some of the best schools in the world and I am bothered by those which didn't. Will I ever be doomed to focus on the bad and not on the good? Has anyone experienced this type of feeling? could sure use some coping strategies.
