  1. I am afraid it is not too far-fetched to infer that you saying "I am far from being pessimistic" counts as some kind of expression of disclaimer of anxiety, unless you want to be painstakingly obsessed over the psychoanalytic criss-crossing or the ontological independent meaning of these two terms. And there weren't 20 people entering their results last year; and i doubt there were ever this many people entering results for any given top programs in a given year. the fact that you casually made such a claim is perhaps indicative of your unfamiliarity with the result section on grad cafe. No ma

I see a lot of posts here making claims with an overwheliming of sense of defeatism and ennui that trumps over cool-headed analyticc evaluation of the situation. The questions are posed in such a fashion that are not even worth answering (sorry to be harsh) First of all, programs like NW normally does have 12-15 people enrolled each year. But if they enroll this many, this almost mean they need to admit at least the double the number of applicants. Of course, between the top programs these selected a
  5. i would be surprised if theory and method subfield has more applicants than others. On the contrary, I think it is precisely the heavily empircial and popular American, Comparative and International Relations that have the greatest number of applicants.
