Saw about 7 posts on the same topic today ("OMG school wants a decision in x amount of days, what do I do?!??!") doesn't anyone use the search function? </crabby>

    I thought it would be interesting for others to know that this cycle a lot of schools are ignoring the CGS resolution and not "playing nice," which is creating some stressful situations for us. For me, grad cafe is as good a place as any to vent :)

    if they are ignoring CGS, they probably arent a good program.

First night last night was a lot of fun. My cohort and I all hugged each other when we were reunited again. So nice to have a close group. Looking forward to class #2 tonight and see what it brings :)

Application season is an emotional roller coaster that you are riding in the dark so you have no idea when you are going up or down...

    Written during downhill...
    I went from my probably only interview invite to at least two presumed rejections (on the same day) within about three days, which inspired this.

Today, my lonely inbox was horrified by one rejection (awww) and one acceptance (yay!) with a really low stipend (...). Such is life?

    Congratulations on your acceptance! How low is your stipend? Is it still feasible to live with it though? Anyways, congrats!

Ugh, the anxiety of waiting for these freakin programs is making my head spin! And why, OH WHY, did I only apply to 4 programs, 3 of which were Ph.D?

    I do understand. The entire process is torturous. Wishing you the best.

    Which one is the larger crushing blow, to be shut out with 4 applications or to be shut out with 12?

Two persumed rejections, two prestigious UG award nominations at my school, and the possibility of two potential maunscripts from the meeting with my PI today... One interview in one week, it still only takes one yes!
