“I’m Going To Write Smart Things About Death in Literature.”

A fantastic (and only slightly exaggerated) cartoon portrayal of the Humanities grad school admissions process—specifically, asking your jaded, reluctant professor for a recommendation. (Note: maybe don’t watch this if you’re planning to ask your jaded, reluctant professor for a recommendation.)

  1. recent grad

    as a recent grad/engl major: so funny and terrifying at the same time. but these are the obstacles one must contend with if one wants to live a life of the mind.

  2. Green Prof

    Don’t worry, all the profs saw this a couple of weeks before it hit Wesleying.

    And we think it is pretty funny! (And true!)
