And if you disown me, I’d understand

I got destroyed by the GRE math section. I’m simultaneously flabbergasted, mortified, and resigned. The last being because nothing has gone right for me in my quest to get into a Ph.D. program. Just another straw on the camel’s back. Some things, I guess, are just not meant to be. Without inspiration, without desire, I think I’ve hit my limit.

I don’t know if this constitutes a full crisis of faith in myself. If it is a clarification, it is hard for me to see so far. I think I feel physically ill from this. Waiting for the angels to speak…

  1. that’s not true. what about that A+, or that other A+, or that other A+?
    dominating phd classes filled with crazy chinese guys at the top stat program in the world isn’t so insignificant.

  2. Way to rub it in that they discontinued Tab Energy. Excuse me while I sob uncontrollably in the corner of the room.

  3. my experience applying to stanford grad schools was, they don’t give a shit about the GRE. only grades matter, especially in classes related to the program to which you’re applying.
