Chapter 4 covers my homesickness at Cornell and my excitement with my courses at the Cornell School of Industrial and Labor Relations, meeting my future husband, Sam Strober, and the encouragement I get from several Cornell faculty members and from Sam to get a Ph.D. I highlight two devastatingly unsuccessful interviews (for a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship and for admission to Harvard’s economics department), and describe my M.A. program in economics at Tufts. I also explore my unsuccessful efforts to find a comfortable spiritual home within Judaism and to create a loving relationship with my sister Alice.
