Deer in the Headlights


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else been accepted by at least one program, but found themselves too paralyzed to get in and make contacts, research, etc. about that school/those schools because you're still waiting to hear from others?

I'm a little shy to begin with, and am finding myself ridiculously hesitant to open interactions without all the facts on the table in front of me. I know this is dumb for a myriad of reasons, but it's still a block. Any tips for the shy on good ways to get over it and start talking to people? Reassurances that professors in my field won't hate me forever if I take up their time, visit, and then ultimately pick another program would also be nice. :blink:
