    Kid, Stop kidding yourself. Sincerely, Somebody

    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!

    "countdown to april 15th" thread

    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!

    ashamed to tell my recommenders

    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.

    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

    Economic History

    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!

    STILLL havent heard from schools!

    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?!

    Invited to interviews, then rejected...

    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 :-/

    Anyone else regretting not applying to more schools?

    I think the limiting factor for me was recs! How many recs is an appropriate number to ask someone to do? Any guidance?
