  1. There's been at least 7 reported acceptances this year - I think you're right.
  2. I've heard (it should be on the website but I can't find it at the moment) that CSU sends out acceptances around late March. Still waiting on UNC Chapel Hill and Ann Arbor, though I'm assuming wait-lists for both until I get a concrete answer from them.
  3. I didn't apply to the others, but I think the program at John Hopkins is becoming more active. I was sent an email saying my application was ready for review about 2 weeks ago, and yesterday I received a rejection notice from them (which is ok, but still a bit disappointing) Hope this helps! Good luck getting in to any of those schools
  4. Has anyone received responses from Columbia's PhD program or Colorado State's? I'm beginning to wonder if maybe CSU has rolling admissions - I submitted in October of last year and have heard nothing since.
  5. I was out shopping for school supplies and desk decorations when I got my first acceptance. I think I got a few strange looks when I started jumping up and down in the middle of the store after reading the email, lol. Immediately ran outside and called my parents and mentors and we all squealed about it.
  6. I enjoy console gaming a lot, and I'm going to try and set up some sort of Dungeons and Dragons group wherever I go. I also dabble in some digital art and ricing (customizing user interfaces on phones and computers), and I'd love to stick with it because it's so much fun.
  7. Oof, that stinks. I got one too; it's weird that they sent so many out on Valentine's Day.
  8. Nothing yet from Columbia or CMU for the regular PhD. Didn't apply to Harvard, so not sure there.
  9. My wait is over!! I got an acceptance to PSU! No matter what happens now, I'm going to grad school! This is so exciting - good luck to everyone else!
  10. Thank you so much for this post! I was starting to think myself into a dark corner because I haven't had decisions from any of my schools, so this really helps. I'll keep positive until late March, I suppose!
  11. Oof, I feel that. Any sign of life would be great, you know? I've almost just stopped caring entirely about the process, but then I'll get an inkling to log in to my application page or my phone will buzz with an email and the anxiety begins anew.
  12. That's pretty much how I feel, especially on reaching out to potential advisors. I had no idea you were supposed to do that so I ended up only contacting one professor simply because I was in the area and wanted to stop by the physical offices where the other grads work. I feel like I'm out of the running entirely, and it doesn't help that my quant score was barely passable for my field (160Q) Let's keep hoping, though! Tons of acceptances go out in February - just because we didn't hear anything positive in January doesn't mean we're out of the race entirely. And congrats on your offer, that's super exciting!!
  13. I know someone who did that, actually! They lived in a monastery in Germany for a summer. They said it helped ground them and learn how to better focus on what's important to them in life. I think it was only for a summer though, so idk if they would say the same thing for a whole year, lol.
  14. February is an interesting month - I've got a conference at the end of the month I'm looking forward to + tons of school events going on, but I've heard radio silence from my programs (which, as I've learned, is semi-expected, since Statistics programs really start digging into their applications around this time). So I'm imagining that February will be full of a lot of news, hopefully some good! @Moods Oof, it sounds like February is going to be pretty rough - I bet you'll get through it just fine, and even stronger as a person! Good reminder about self-care, it's something I forget so much during times of stress. Even radical self care is helpful (make time to take showers and brush teeth even if it feels like the world is falling down!!)
