    Me. I was advised not to but was also told that if I am going straight from an undergraduate program, I will be competing with other people applying straight from an undergraduate program. So everything is put in perspective.

    Thanks for all the replies! Very encouraging in many ways. Wish everyone a better cycle, sooner or later.

    Next year

    I know it is not completely over, but anybody already thinking of reapplying next year? I dont know if I can go through this process again, to be honest. It was so stressful just waiting for results, especially knowing that the chances are slim. But getting a PhD and becoming a professor someday also feels like something I desperately want. I don't know. Maybe it is too early to feel hopeless. Would appreciate some insights from those who are reapplying or have reapplied.
  5. You know, if I ever become a professor, I am going to remember this pain and discomfort just waiting for the rejection and make sure that students hear from my school ASAP. But probably because I know what that is like, I might never make it to be a professor. Big sad.
