Sigh. I landed up withdrawing from my fellowship. I feel right and good about this, but I'm definitely disappointed, too. I sent an email out to my fellow trainees last night, explaining why, and began receiving replies that were very supportive this morning. But when I logged on to the account later to see if there were any more, I realized that I had been cut off.
The whole thing is weird. How it was handled. I've literally heard nothing except for a few words from my supervisor.
I'm moving on quickly from this one, though. No drama (and the powers that be can rest easy knowing there won't be any contagion loosed upon the mighty halls of academe)
