  1. Anyone wake up today full well knowing it wouldn’t change over the weekend, but yet still find yourself checking the portal and this thread for any signs of an update? 🤣 Totally get that most schools have record number of applicants and the process is taking longer, but it is still hard to have had yesterday’s date in mind for so long and see it pass by- but hey, as we know there are far worse things in the world! For various reasons, HGSE is the only school I applied to but I feel for those of you juggling other decisions/interviews and weighing long distance moves, etc. Hang in t
  2. Ahhhh is today the day?! Who knows. All I will say is that regardless if we hear today or not, and regardless if (when we do) we get the answer we are each hoping for or not, this does not make or break us.

  6. Jeremy, thanks for getting this string started! Many thanks as well to all who have posted thoughtful questions and resources thus far. Any insight as to how heavily they consider the quant score of your GRE? I was going to wait a year or two to apply however, for a host of reasons I will avoid boring all of you with, I have now decided to apply for Fall 2021. I take the GRE a month from tomorrow and am quite stressed about the quant section.
