    Is anyone else just way too anxious?

    My current uni's sending out a bunch of spam emails today (a department's emailed 80+ people without bcc'ing and of course, lots of people hit 'reply all' when getting back to them) and there couldn't be a worse day for this (except any other day this month and up until I get all my rejections). I'm so on edge when I hear the 'new email' sound, it's insane. Don't wanna turn my email off either because what if I finally get an email from a place I applied to? *deep breaths*

    There's been a couple more now, seems legit. I saw them and instantly thought of you -- it took me a couple moments to remember I'm waiting to hear from Cornell too, looks like I'm more invested in your application than my own lol. They've been notified by email, so there's still hope. Rooting for you!
  4. They did that to me too! Took a good while for my heart rate to go back down. @Ternwild and @fortsibut, right here with you too. I know I've been silently rejected from four, but couldn't they just. . .let me know? I get that they're busy but it still makes me go 😕

    If it makes you feel any better, March is in 8 days! I don't get how January lasted for 74 days, February has lasted 4 days and the 2019 cycle application waiting purgatory has lasted for a good five years.
  6. Well, that was a rollercoaster from start to finish hahah.

    That's sounds like the best day you could hope for! I love love love Hamilton, I was in NYC for two days this summer and spent eight hours of it in the cancellation queue at the theatre. My seat was 1A; I've never been happier to feel someone spitting on me. Potentially the best day of my life. Did you have a good time? But also, big congrats on getting another offer!!

    Did you get an actual rejection or are you going by OHSP's post?

    Advice for Fall 2020 Applicants

    I feel this so much. I'm deeply hoping I'll get at least one thing of individualised feedback this cycle because while I have a good idea of the mistakes I made, I'm not sure what I could be missing. I'm already dreading getting rejected from everywhere next year too. Good luck to you! And thanks to everyone who has contributed, your input is fantastic!

    Favorite academic Twitter accounts?

    Kevin Kruse. Fighting racists and other bad people on the daily. Love him to bits!

    Echoing @londonrain9 and @ResilientDreams -- I've a 2014 retina pro too! It's still going strong, and I love it, been using it for the IB (two years) and three years of uni. I love it to the extent where I'm deeply worried what I'd do if it broke. I'm not a fan of any of the newer Macs, but damn I don't wanna go back to windows. Never had to do repairs or anything on mine. Hoping it lives forever haha.

    I'm thinking that it might be a POI choice whether they interview or not, but I'm certainly bracing for a rejection. Hope is there for all of us though! ❤️
