Well, that stinks. March 29, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Annette @ 2:14 am

Long story short: my grad school world view fell apart today. 

I’m still accepted – that’s not a problem.  But what I thought McGill’s program is like is not actually what it’s like, I think I should do an RD with my Master’s, and that’d be hard to do at McGill or Minnesota, Minnesota offered me a TA position, but it would only pay for 1/4 of my $16K tuition.  My options are looking progressively unattractive, and I have no idea what I’m going to do.  Add to that having to try to make end-of-semester and moving plans without knowing what I’m doing, considering the possibility of living Elsewhere for part of the summer, and having two papers and an exam looming on the near horizon.  Money, money, money.  That’s what a lot of this comes down to.  Stupid money.  I say I should just forget grad school and sell hemp necklaces at a hippie store instead.  blah.

    One option is to defer your admission, then apply in November for SSHRC and OGS (if you didn’t do that this round); if things work out, you could get external funding to accept the Master’s spot. Just a thought. Good luck – I know firsthand how agonizing this kind of decision is.

    Hemp necklaces? I’d buy ’em.
