  1. Kid, Stop kidding yourself. Sincerely, Somebody
  2. how do schools view re-applicants? are they common? are they seen as last year's rejects? what should an applicant do to justify a reapplication (e.g. i'm guessing an applicant should make strides toward improving areas of his/her profile that may have been weak the first go-around)? thanks!
  3. Duke Marketing UNC Marketing Any info floating around out there? :wink:
  4. i had resigned myself to just reapplying next year, but every now and then i get glimmer of hope that my wait-lists will come through. i wish they'd just reject me already so this wait can be over April 15th seems so far away!
  5. fuck it. i'm not waiting any longer to sign up for a gym. i'm clearly not moving anytime soon... always a silver lining
  6. anyone hear anything from duke marketing? unc marketing? :x :roll:
  7. excitement and nerves replaced by disappointment spirit will rebound
  8. i agree with ridgey! especially since i've been out of school for several years - though it doesn't feel like it. that makes the whole in-person thing harder.
  9. What is an "unofficial wait-list"? I called to ask about my status at my top choice school and they told me I was on the "unofficial waitlist"... Is this just an unranked wait-list? The run-of-the-mill waitlist? The who-the-fuck-cares-because-you're-not-getting-in waitlist?...Yeah, I guess you can see how I feel about the matter
  10. hi, if i don't get in anywhere - which is looking almost definite at this point - what do i tell my recommenders?! i feel too embarassed to tell them, as ridiculous as that may sound. anyone else been through this?
  11. i was supposed to hear from umd last wk. i will prob follow up today... still no word from duke, wustl, nyu & umd in some ways, i've resigned myself to utter defeat (wow - it's amazing they don't have a crying emoticon or something)
  12. Hi, I am interested in economic history (though I have not yet applied to any programs in this field). Does anyone have a sense of how big or small an area this is within history? I feel like it is one that might be growing but is more popular outside of the U.S.? Thanks!
  13. still waiting to hear from 4 schools, one of which told me they would let me know their final decision by last week (after a phone interview)! WTF?!
  14. At my interview, they asked: "what can we do to make you come here?" Um, an offer would be helpful. And yet, I was rejected. Hard to make sense of the whole process sometimes :-/
  15. I think the limiting factor for me was recs! How many recs is an appropriate number to ask someone to do? Any guidance?
