F*** Grad Schools

I'm too good for this nonsense anyway.

In this thread, we discuss why graduate school sucks, why we are lucky to be receiving only rejection letters, and what lies in store for us?
(Does a Bachelor's still cut it anymore? Who gives a damn?)

Posts infused with bitterness and a virulent hatred towards life (and of course the idea of graduate school) are very welcome and may provoke me into doling out a good rep to the poster. Cheerful and inspirational posters, beware.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Grad schools are for losers. Fuck them.

Re: F*** Grad Schools

You're getting rejected? Shouldn't graduating from Yale get you automatically into anywhere you want to go?

Re: F*** Grad Schools

Apparently not. Maybe if I were an East Asian Studies major. Instead, I'm studying the most useless field known to mankind.

Re: F*** Grad Schools

Grad schools are the most useless in recognizing talent. They go for riff-raffs who just give good BJs.

Re: F*** Grad Schools

I went to Grad school with full fellowship and have a PhD in biomedical engineering. Also I have zero debt in student loans.

I warned you.

Also I always thought you are a teenager. But of course, maybe you are.

Re: F*** Grad Schools

I don't have a graduate degree, mostly because I can't afford to go. In the meantime, I get to travel the world doing something that I enjoy. In short, not having a graduate degree was a financial choice on my part, but one which has led me on a pretty fun path. So.... yay! Fuck 'em! Or something.

Re: F*** Grad Schools

Many people that I went to school with, almost all of whom got lower grades than I did, have graduate degrees. Because they didn't grow up poor. So, I suppose I could dwell on and curse that. But really, my graduate degree free life has been mostly magic. Yours can be, too!

I don't know why I needed two posts for that, either. Maybe if I had gone into debt another 20 grand for grad school I would have found a way to keep it to one?

Really? You must have missed the part where he wrote "engineering", thus killing all possible sex appeal.
