It appears that grad school is not in my future. Now, 0-4 (UF, UCLA, Georgia Tech, USF), I have to move on. There is a chance that I could get into UCF or FIT for a master’s program, but I honestly don’t expect it at this point. I didn’t expect to get accepted by every school but certainly didn’t expect to get rejected by each one. I don’t need to keep optimistic because of the 4 options left (Virginia Tech and NC State are also open) because there is no reason to be. I have to find a new (old) path just so I can survive. I guess survival is the only motivation I have right now moving forward. I took a risk and it isn’t going to pay off and I must live with it.
