Also, it seems like even people accepted right off the bat aren't notified at the same time (only adding to the fun!).

My interest will be multiculturalism in Germany in the 21st century. The big cities (Berlin, Hamburg, Munich) are international hubs (not like London or NYC, but comparable nonetheless) and this has always been fascinating to me. I'd appreciate some input!
Also, I was initially very interested becoming a German teacher (high school), but decided not to when I learned that the German language is dissapearing from US highschools. What is the career outlook for a German PhD? My interest would be teaching, not research (of course research will be essential during the PhD, but not following).

For example, when it is about engineering, some understanding of technology is way more important for every translating than the sophisticated vocabulary. Translating is not so well paid, also not in very professional spheres, teaching could be similar, because of low entrance barriers for less qualified competitors. It's not the right job for expensive metropolitan areas.
In the UK there is very high demand for German as an extra-qualification and probably also more for teachers than in the US. These are only my laymen thoughts.
