  7. Last year I declined a PhD offer, but it was mostly because they had funding issues that were only apparent to me after getting in. At first I really wanted to go, but the uncertainty of funding prompted me to take a closer look at what they were offering as a department and I realized (with the help of this forum) that it wasn't prudent to attend. For me the ideal option is an integrated MA/PhD and this year I'm on the waitlist for my top choice - OSU. I will say that after a year my application changed pretty drastically: my research interests are different and quite frankly I'm just smarter than I was last cycle. By no means am I prescribing this as a solution, but I thought that the lower ranked PhD program was the best I could do - and perhaps it was at the time - yet I surprised myself with what I was able to put together this time around. Each one of us has different circumstances, but I think declining an offer to try again is a serious move regardless. What's important is to make an informed decision.
