  1. Seconded! Everyone here is fantastic, and I thank you all for helping me through the last five (!) months! Being alone in this would've been less than great. And I truly hope to meet some of you at conferences in the future! First round's on me!
  2. Woooo! You made my day, @Crow T. Robot!
  3. My preparation currently consists of reading Les mots et les choses and watching old Pauly Shore videos. Gonna be totally tubular brah. And congrats on Clemson, @Wabbajack!!!
  4. Very happy to report that I signed my soul over to Stanford last week! Now to learn how to surf...
  5. "Unpredictable" is exactly apropos. My last acceptance was 25 days ago! Since then, I've gotten 13 rejections, which comes out to almost .5 per day. So February has been, at different times, one of the most joyous yet also consistently disappointing months of my life! It's been strange, to say the least, and I still haven't finished processing all the thoughts and emotions. But now comes the time for visits, and I'm happy as a clam! Be careful with the Yalies, though. I hear they fight dirty.
  6. Rejected at Harvard! I suppose I'll never get the satisfaction of pummeling a Yalie. Oh well. 3 acceptances and 13 rejections is the final tally! It's been a wild ride, folks, but I'm glad to have gone through it with you all!

    2018 Acceptances

    @M(allthevowels)H, I'd recommend checking out this thread: There's a lot of wisdom in it about rankings, program prestige, the academic job market, etc., that might answer some of your questions.

    I think NB is an hour away from the city? Not too bad.

    I just spent the long weekend with my friend in Jersey! Loved it! Hoboken is rad. And they have all the bagels!
