    You can hope they like you so much they don't even feel the need to interview you :-) Oops, I thought I had seen it on the Princeton website. http://www.princeton.edu/gradschool/admission/applicants/applying/application/ But it says "by March 15". Never mind me...

    But Princeton said they release all decisions on March 15th.

    Nope, nothing. I already contacted them and asked. Lets see...

    I got my first result in last night and it was a yes from UGA. Waiting for 7 more results...

    "Forums". "Fora" is pretentious.
  6. LOL frankdux. You geek Seriously, your referees will hate you. 3 of mine gave up after 6 LORs. I had 6 referees for a total of 3x8 = 24 LORS -> 4 LORS per referee on average. I also wanted to say, baboons and drug abuse. Good stuff. I have a problem, I self-medicate with alcohol and drugs because I have a panic disorder (that's an excuse, I really do it because I know no other way). Weirdest thing I've seen was giant turtles crawling on my ceiling. But seeing baboons would be really weird. And I just noticed this is from 2008... Whoaaaaa...

    So, I've been applying. Just finishing my undergrad studies. Was wondering if anybody could PM me a SOP or WS that got them in grad school. If you already had an MA and was applying for PhD, that's OK too. I need something to compare my own work against. I have no idea how good or bad my work is. My professors say it's great but I feel like it's ridiculously bad.
  13. Thank you for your replies. I'm sure it seems misguided, but there are certain special circumstances under which I'm applying to certain universities. It's very complicated, and I can't and don't want to explain, but I can assure you it makes sense from my POV. I think I've gotten my answers. PS: I realize you're thinking that a-hole could possibly "steal" the place of somebody who actually KNOWS about and *genuinely* wants to go to *that* school. I would probably think the same. It's not really like that, though.
  14. I've done that. However, here's the thing. There's schools I've applied for where I know every little thing about their professors work, and I've read like most of their publications and followed their research closely over the past couple years. Then there's others where I just know there's professors who do this and professors who do that. Well, there's a big difference between the two.
