  1. When do people commonly apply to national graduate fellowships (NSF, NDSEG, etc)? I've been in an unrelated industry for two years, so I don't think I'll be ready to write a good research proposal until after my first year of study. I know that I would technically still be eligible, but is it a good idea to wait? I would much rather spend my first semester on campus finding a research adviser and working out my own interests than writing essays which probably wouldn't be accurate in a year. Also, I feel like I could get better recommendation letters after a year in my graduate program. However, I do not want to ruin my chances by missing the standard application timeline. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Here's a question for anyone familiar with UT. I'm trying to find an apartment on one of the shuttle routes, and I've heard that some are in 'bad' areas of town. Are these areas really bad or have I just been hearing from people who are used to suburban instead of urban life? Specifically, I'm looking at apartments on the FW, CR, and LS shuttle routes. Thanks for the help!!
  3. That sounds like good news to me. I'm also applying to that program, so I hope I'm on "the list" too!
  4. I just found out that I was accepted into the UT-Austin computational and applied math phd program with a fellowship! I thought I had no chance of getting in so I'm super excited!
