However, now I have a very bad feeling that I won’t fit in the program. I feel that I maybe not smart enough, not prepared enough. Maybe someone is better for the program. I am sure that getting Ph.D. is a right thing to do, and I am really excited by the field I am in. But I still have this feeling that I am not good enough for Stanford.
I know that it is normal, and I’ve heard about “imposter syndrome”. But even so, I feel bad. Please give some advice on how to overcome this feeling. And good luck for everyone who is applying this year.
