  1. Anyone going to umich? Let's get to know each other!
  2. I highly recommend trying google.com/flights. Make sure you're using a private browsing window when looking for flights as most websites use your cookies and search history to hike up the prices. If you haven't, just erase your history and use a "incognito" windows from now on. Cheers!
  3. About 10 days ago, the DGS from my top choice (currently waitlisted) contacted me to ask whether I was still interested in the program. "I am writing to confirm your continued interest in our Phd program. We are not yet ready to admit anyone off the waitlist, but I would be happy to turn to you if the opportunity arose, so I thought I would check in. Please let me know if you have any questions about the program or the process." Do DGSs often do this? I keep reading about people contacting DGSs with questions about the waitlist, but never the reverse. I'm wondering if this is a really good sign or if they've most likely also contacted other people on their waitlist. Naturally I responded with a heck yes!, reiterated that it was my top choice for xyz and asked some questions regarding the waitlist...which turns out is not ranked. He told me that he didn't want to give me false hope, but claimed, "I would not have written to you again if I didn't think there was a legitimate possibility that a spot would open for you." I want to be excited, but at the same time there's a voice in the back of my head saying "bet he says that to everyone." Thoughts?
  4. If we all post where we expect to accept or decline, I think it will give some of the folks on waitlists some idea of movement. Where have you been accepted to/waitlisted? What are your top choices?
