who wants to be a doctor?
Dear Roomie 1 and Roomie 2,
I wanted to let you know that you both received letters from This University today, and with all the pain in my heart, I tell that neither of you were accepted. The letter did mention how competitive the program this year is, and how it really came down to the right "fit" over qualifications, since both of you had perfect qualifications and credentials.
Roomie 1, you also received sad/stupid/not the right answer letters from This Other University and Yet Another University.
I hated every minute of writing this email, and I love you both. You can come to my PhD program, as soon as I get one. That's for sure.

This actually got me thinking…if I had a university, what kind of PhD program(s) would I offer? Here is a short list, just off the top of my head:
2. Foot Modeling
3. Intergalactic Languages
5. Looking Busy
6. Unhelpful Side Commenting
If there are any subjects you’d like to receive a doctoral degree in, please be sure to add it. Many thanks.

Is there any chance of a program focused on balancing breakfast for 6 different people along with a 32 oz Diet Coke as you get out of the car with a really big purse? Because I would be really interested in that.
