So, I am really pissed off right now and I can't say it anywhere but here.
I'm sitting in my core lecture required of all first year doctoral students. Everyone at Harvard have bent over backwards to console me about my lack of research experience. "Don't worry about it!" they say. "The courses you will take later in the semester will explain it all." However, the professor just threw up all these quantitative symbols and made all these witty jokes. I had NO idea what the hell was so funny.
I finally called him out saying, "So right now, you're just dropping a bunch of inside jokes for stats people."
