  1. I haven't nailed down housing yet. Anyone else still looking for roomies or lease-taker-overers?
  2. If it makes you feel any better (I know it sucks being in that position no matter what), it happens every year (and from what I've heard, it happens every year on the job market, too.) Of course, it's understandable that programs would be disappointed to have candidates retract their decisions and it's a situation worth avoiding if possible. But ultimately, the programs will survive with or without you, and it's one of the most important decisions of your professional career.

All programs' restrictions and requirements from the Grad School are different, so I'd ask someone in the department directly before deciding whether or not to apply.
