I found out one rejection feels way worse than the combination of one acceptance and 3 alternate lists feels good, and that rejecting an interview invitation today for another school made my rejection sting less. Apparently I am way more petty and thin skinned than I thought I was. This process sucks. School and the career better be way more fun!
