[Comments] (8) : I've decided not to go to grad school. Okay, so I haven't so much decided as can't. Here's why: I was supposed to take the GRE's about two weeks ago. Obviously, I didn't. Ok, but I could take them in December (I think) except that I can't, because it costs $115 and I don't have $115. I don't even have enough money to pay rent. Oh, I have enough to pay my portion of rent--just--but not what I actually have to pay because @#$%%^ decided to $%^&*$%^!!! And that's not even getting into the, what, $50? for each application... Or what I'm going to be eating for the next who-knows-how-long until I can actually find a job. Ramen, I guess.

I'm going to go cry in a corner now. Except that I can't even do that, because I have to work on an assignment due in two hours.

I am sending you all the money I have out of the pure goodness of my heart.

This is all the money I have. (i.e. none)

Hey Rachel, you might be able to get a fee waiver. You should look into it, because if you can, you can sign up for the GRE's this month. All you have to do is call them, and they can give you an appointment the day after if you want. I take them this Friday. If you are worried about studying...all I can say is that I haven't studied, so you probably don't need to study either. But then again, a nice gap year does sound appealing...hummmm

Or, a possiblity is Cal State, which doesn't require the GRE.

you could always do a year at calstate, then take them, or something.

Hey Rsch, When I went to Cal State: San Berdoo they had a masters program in International Affairs. That's up your alley IIRC.

Yeesh. School can be exhausting on all accounts. Hang in there Rach.
