    Welcome to the 2014-15 Cycle

    Same here. But their understanding of "top" is I think a little different then ours. For them, it's everyone on the waitlist.

    Stipend negotiation?

    I beg to differ. I agree that treading carefully, being polite, and understanding that the person you are talking to may not be in a position to make such decision is important. But let's be real. This is a market place. And while it sucks, money is important--for EVERYONE. The faculty member you talk to is not paid by candies and nuts. Chances are that he also negotiated his current position. That doesn't mean they will be ready to negotiate and improve their offers, but even if they can't do anything, they'll understand, and won't look down on you for trying to get a better offer. Everyone wants better salaries, better conditions. There's no shame in it. PhD students are human beings too.
  3. Hope you are right. Because the suspense is killing me

    Same here dude. Really curious if that happened to everyone who got rejected or what

    Yeah same here. It's probably a rejection. The entries on the results page tell us that acceptances were sent out on Friday

    Really? That's weird. But I know of a few people outside the forum who got rejections.

    I know that a batch of rejections have gone out a few weeks ago. I am curious if they are doing it based on subfield or what

    Are you planning to accept the offer? If not, it'd be really awesome if you could reject it asap for us poor souls on the waitlist.

    I recieved an e-mail this morning telling me that two of my letters were missing even though my referees said they submitted them (that's also what it said on the applyyourself page). But I had to send them again, which tells me that they are just starting to review the apps. But have no idea how long this would take. maybe a week or shorter?
