    Should I retake the GRE ?

    Retake them.... Your publications will look like you had ALOT of help if your verbal and writing sections are low, so they won't count that much. STUDY!!!! I worked at an admissions office (undergrad so not that applicable, but still) and people would say they were going to retake tests all the time. Some said they planned on studying/taking a course, some didn't. Surprise, surprise... those who did, did better and those who didn't showed little or no improvement.
  2. U chicago if you get into HUDV or Psychology you can pretty much work with and take classes in anything and self-design. A lot of people do ti.

    Not a big town, very college-towny. So, dive bars and such. As far as I know, it's pretty Ohio people heavy.

    Still No News!!

    That's really strange. I would expect that they would tell you soon after May 15th. I would say it's probably a long shot, but I really don't know. Sorry and good luck!
  6. Even if you are dressed so you feel out of place, you can always pick out people worse than you. I saw some awful outfits at the conferences I went to. If you are presenting, wear something professional. Suit, or business attire. If you are just attending, business casual is fine. Jeans are sometimes appropriate, but khakis or better are generally acceptable. No tuxedos

    Technically it's Buena Park. But, it's on the border. It seems to be a pretty quiet residential area from what we saw, but maybe I'm wrong. Also, the street I'm on has permit parking, so that should limit the parking dilemma. It seemed to have a lot of open spaces. Hope so . But, I'm coming straight from undergrad, so I'm used to drunk people and we're off a side street across from a hospital parking lot, so I don't see our street being too horribly rowdy.

    Thanks again for the advice on using the apartment people. They totally rock and we found a nice cheap place in Beuna Park/Wrigleyville (blocks from teh stadium, so excited ). PS- Anyone need a room for the summer? I'm gonna need to sublet my roommates from June - Mid August.

    my chances of getting in...

    I really doubt there is anyway someone can give you a good answer to that. It's such a hit or miss process with so many variables. Any internships, research, honors classes, GRE scores are?, letters of rec, personal statement, interest matches, etc etc etc
  10. Is that really you Barista? Why signed in as a guest?

    still waiting...?!

    wow! Are these PhD programs? I assumed they all had to tell you something by the April 15th deadline. Hope they tell you before the semester starts.

    See... I'm pretty sure my "Girls Gone Wild" performance helped me. I got a lot of money and an interesting assistantship. j/k

    Help with new funding offer

    It is legal... you do have to ask to be let out by school B assuming they are one of the schools in the agreement. Professionally, it is debated how bad this is to do. However, in this case, it may be worth having less debt afterward to piss some people off. Also, you may tell school B that school A offered you more money so you may have to rescind acceptance and see if they give you more. That way, you tell them why and give them a chnace to match your offer as well as make them understand it isn;t personal. Good luck! I hate it when good news turns out to be more stressful than bad news

    Long Distance Relationships?

    I think the fact that he's unwilling to be in a long distance relationship is enough. You can't make someone want to be in a long distance relationship. They either do or don't. Even people who are gung ho at the onset often realize a little while in that it's too hard. If he starts off being coerced or uncertain, it seems unlikely he will become more motivated (instead of less) to keep up the relationship. Also, I think that if he is unwilling to move for you when it seems it would be easier for him (do you see how many people didn't get in anywhere and or had only one or two choices) it seems unfair that you should throw away a good career move for yourself. Good luck... but, my advice would be to throw in the towel. If you're not both commited to the idea of a long distance relationship, you will probably just waste a lot of time trying to convince him, making both of you miserable.
