With the start of the new semester I have found that there are several things of importance that nobody ever bothered to tell me.

Apparently we’re just supposed to do our research on our own. Yeah. They aren’t really giving us any guidance or letting us know what is expected of us. I talked to my advisor for the first time this week because I don’t know what the hell is going on. Apparently he was supposed to approve my research topic like a year ago. Nobody told me that either.

Also, there’s this comprehensive exam that we have to pass in order to graduate. I didn’t know about that until last semester. It’s supposed to cover six of the classes we’ve had. I don’t have those textbooks anymore. And nobody has told us when this mysterious exam is to occur.

It’ll be a miracle if I actually complete all of the crap that I need to graduate because no one is telling what I need to know.

I’m really, really upset about this.

I’m paying a lot of money to these people. At the very least they could give me the information I need to do my work.

I have another interview on Friday.  I seem like a very good choice for the job, but I’ve thought that before…

Not even going to bother writing about the details unless they offer it to me.

Also, I think it’s dumb that you need academic references when you apply for a graduate degree six years after undergrad.  I don’t know if any of my professors remember me.  In any case, I’m a very different person now than when I was in college.  I don’t really see how it’s relevant.  Especially since the forms from the department want to know about my sense of humor, or things like my “ability to calm others” and “ability to tolerate ambiguity.”   Really, Edinoro?
