Dear T,
Got my formal rejection from the PhD program today, which I was expecting with it being so late. I didn't even react much to it. The other girl didn't get in either, but at least they told her to consider applying again (some funding issues apparently). Guess they didn't think I was good enough...But I'l be OK, if this had been 2 months ago, like shortly after my interviews, I'd have been crushed. But now? Eh. I don't even know that I'd want to deal with them as a student, they left me wondering (with no communication, ignoring occasional check-ins) for so long. Would it have killed them to at least tell me I was on the waitlist? Which apparently I was...


I know you said to e-mail (or text if good news) when I found out, but I bothered you enough yesterday. And bad news can wait. If I'd gotten accepted, sure I'd have e-mailed you. But this, eh...and honestly, I don't even feel the need to discuss it in session. I mean, I'll update you of course, but I don't want to use my time talking about that.

I knew when things were going so well, you would pull your BS again and "get spooked" this is such a frustrating and annoying pattern. I wish the rules didn't put such paranoia in you. I wish you could be honest with me like I am with you.

I really have to decide how much longer I can deal with your games

Sorry to hear you didn't get in. It doesn't automatically mean you weren't good enough, sometimes schools just have quotas to fill.

Would you consider reapplying next year?

The more I think about how our next session is going to begin, the more anxious I get. Too much ****ing death, I tell you. Too much.
