  3. Is there a reason why no one is posting here this year? There was quite a bit of back and forth when I applied for my master’s two years ago. Thoughts?
  4. I do a few things. I’ve had mental health problems on and off for a long time so I have some experience - First of all, these things ebb and flow so it’s helpful to remind myself that a funk will end. I won’t feel like that forever. - Exercise. Honestly the most helpful thing. I feel more energized and positive about myself and my body. - Make sure I eat well. When I’m depressed I don’t feel like cooking. But, I give myself permission to eat a frozen dinner or burrito because that’s better than Oreos and chips. - Have someone I can talk to personally/professionally. Last winter/

  9. No advice but I’m in the same situation. It felt so good to get in, but without funding it’s not even a possibility. I hope we get off the waitlist really quickly!!!!
  10. Have you inquired about this to the admissions people? I do think a lot of people wait until the last minute because they’re hoping to hear from other universities.
  11. Thanks! I have already told A the whole story. It’s just up to students declining their offers at this point. I got an extension to decide so if they decline on the 15th I’ll still be able to accept the next day.
  12. Aw thanks for replying. I’m waiting on Western Washington University. I did end up getting an extension for my decision which is super helpful. Good luck to you! I hope we don’t have to wait too much longer.
  13. Well, I’m officially waitlisted for funding. I guess I’m just here to vent. I got into both programs I applied to and got funded at one and waitlisted for funding at the other which happens to be my first choice. The email said all the TA positions were already offered to students so I just need to wait for them to possibly decline. I don’t know where I am on this waitlist. Their students need to decide by the same day I need to decide about my second choice so I’m feeling very stressed. It sucks to know I wasn’t my favorite advisor’s first choice. It sucks to have to keep waiting
  14. Damn I just got news I’m on a waitlist for funding at A. This thread is even more relevant now.
  15. I’m in the same boat. Thanks for posting this. School A is my top choice and I’ve been accepted but they have yet to divvy out TA positions. School B is my second choice and they’ve already offered me a TA position but need me to decide by the 15th. From what people have said here I will accept B if I hear nothing from A and then consider getting them to release my acceptance at B if A comes through after the 15th. I’ve heard it’s really rude to do so, but I’m also sure there are people waiting for my spot. Because this wasn’t stressful enough, everything has to come down to the la
