Just because there's a name for feeling like a fraud even if you aren't one, doesn't meant you aren't one! I felt like a fraud in graduate school and it turned out I was one.

Exactly - how can we be sure that our feelings aren't in fact real or just the cause of some paranoia?

You were an actual fraud? By what definition? [edit: I wonder if you were really a fraud, or are just feeling down on yourself.]

Well, I dropped out after 1.5 years :).

You're not a fraud. You changed your mind. It's OK to do that.
