What is my response if all three remaining schools reject me?

I know I am not looked upon favorably because of my age and the dignified thing might be to accept reality and just find a job and live with comfort but that is not my style.

In my universe, these are my realities…..

In ten years, I will either have my PhD or wish I had it.

I will not willingly look in the mirror at my ten year older face frowning with regrets.

But if you (times three) reject me,  I will be back next year and the year after that etc. etc. etc. and, guess what, I will be another year older and if you think you can justify it and write me another Dear John letter, I will be there again and again and again for you to reject until I drop dead.

You, oh biased admissions committees, are a brick wall in my life,

You are letting me know how much I want this thing.

But I am on this earth to do something and you are in my way.

Yup, that is a sledge hammer, would you prefer a pick axe?

  1. Another rejection that is 3 have rejected me and two have not made a decision yet.

  2. I hope one of these schools comes to their senses. Good grief.

  3. I like your determination! That’s how I am. I will get my Phd someday, too, hoperfully
