Rejected!

Posted 10 March 2009 - 09:58 AM

I was rejected at my graduate school of choice. :(

Anyone else have an academic failure they would like to share?

Well if you consider dropping out after 1 semester then deciding to return after 3 years and only taking 3 classes (all programming classes) a slight educational failure, then I'll leave that as my contribution to this thread.

I've failed some classes do to work commitments, but haven't had any complete educational failures or rejections yet. I just get up and try again until I'm happy with the result ;) 6 years of school without a degree is slightly embarrassing, but I just make sure to keep moving forward. It's better than giving up :)

I've failed several classes. Calc 1, English 101 twice, and I'm going to fail Trig.

That sucks.

I know they were heavily recruiting female students according to several of their podcasts, but unless they are full I don't see why anyone would turn someone away since they are paying them. Just my $0.02 - but there are others. :)
