When I applied to graduate school sometime back my girlfriend of six years cheated on me with one of my friends. The next week I got rejection letters from all of the schools I applied to. She ended up at Columbia in some master's program. Currently I'm struggling to see if one of the T14 accept me.
The moral of the story is that perseverance is the patently irrational thing to do, but for some reason we do it anyway.
Maybe you should both hook up?
