    Bloomington, IN

    I am excited to be in Bloomington in the coming year! But I have difficulty looking for housing. Is it safe to live in Indiana alone? Should I try to look for something close to campus or is that going to stress me out? I don't have a car and I barely know how to drive. But I would like to learn when I am in Indiana! Is there an option to do so in Bloomington?
  6. I already emailed and called them multiple times about this and they just told me that everything is okay or did not respond. I am also alarmed and confused by this.. There was one official form that I signed but that was it. I hate bureaucracy and I have this feeling that I will continue to suffer with it even when I do get accepted...
  7. No I didn't and I asked them multiple times how to do so but they never replied.
  8. Ever since I was accepted, I heard little to no news from the school. They didnt even send me a proper funding package. I expressed my interest to attend and now I am worried that it will turn out unpleasant. Is it possible for schools to withdraw their offer?
  9. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Also someone already claimed one spot earlier in January. Though i think it might be misinformation. Fingers crossed for all
