Boo, Berkeley, boo.

So it looks like I won't be going to Berkeley at least. I knew it was a long-shot, but as Nada Surf once sang in relation to dating "there's always a feeling of hurt and rejection" when a university "says [it] prefers the company of others to your exclusive company." There were something like 900 applicants for 6 positions, so really, what do I expect?

Oh well. It's probably for the best. One less choice to make.

As someone who is currently toying with the idea of applying to graduate schools... I have questions.

1. How many schools did you apply to?
2. When did you start working on stuff for your applications?
3. How long and HOW did you study for the GRE?
4. What was your research paper on? Did you have to adjust it a lot based on where you applied?
5. Did you apply to all Ph.D. programs or did you apply to MA programs as well?

I'm sure I can come up with more... LOL.

And too bad for Berkeley. Seriously.

Too bad, although awesome application of "Popular." I am playing it on my iPod at this very moment in your honor.

"900 applicants for 6 positions?" Sounds just like DC auditions to me!

You rock, Mary!
