Accepted Into Graduate School

Vorahk1Panrahk2

three and a half months ago I nervously submitted applications for graduate school (and then after that waited for my letters of recommendation to be written). Yesterday, after a month and a half of waiting (and one rejection) I recieved word that I was accepted into my first choice school. Normally I prefer to write more detailed entries, and perhaps later on I will, but for now all I care to say is that I am simultaneously excited and incredibly nervous. I'm stepping very much out of my comfort zone, but at the same time I think it will be a great experience and that good things will result.

Awesome! Congratulations =D I'm not sure I could continue to higher degrees in Bio*, and especially not unless they let me somehow do a Master of Arts in the area just to mess with people's heads. Is there some kind of specific program or track for your Master's? You going full study? Full research? The more normal combo?

 

*Med School is different. Yeah, biological, but not "Biology"

You know what? Look at the grading scale on a worldwide level and compare them to the one in America.

 

You're smarter than you think, dude.

 

No pressure. Take your time. ^^;

The more normal combination of study and research. The biggest difference is that I'm required to do a Peace Corps mission which is when the bulk of the research component will be done. So it's a little longer than your average Masters program- I'm guessing around three and a half-ish years. Fortunatly the Peace Corps aspect of this means my tuition is reduced.

I have no idea when we ever talked about my previous academic insecurities, which makes me think you might be a bit of a mind reader, but I appreciate the positive words!
