  1. I am just hoping for 1-2 good indian food restaurants. Hopefully one northern and one southern, depending on which I am feeling that day.
  2. There are a bunch of websites to choose from. There is also a list of apartments with student reviews on the purdue housing section. I found one that generally had positive reviews, location, and price. I then called them and asked them to do a video tour of the apartment for me. Thought it matched what I was looking for and got it. Honestly I have lived in some shitty places, so if it is not ideal I can deal with that for a year. Just spend more time in the lab.
  3. Now just waiting to hear about the rest of my cohort, I am excited.
  4. Yep, basically its a crap shoot for waitlisters. Although if I got accepted somewhere I wouldn't really risk it but that is me.
  5. My place is 490 for a one bedroom 620 square feet. Also madscience I will be getting there around July so am super excited. Gonna spend that last month getting read to start TAing.
  6. Prestige will just make it a little easier, if you are going academic then your own accomplishments will matter much MUCH more than the name on your degree. Just might have to work a little harder at networking and interesting research is all. Which will be a lot easier because you will be a lot happier(plus no funding? fuck that)
  7. I managed to get a nice place in west lafayette, only about 2.1 miles away from my department offices and it is a straight shot down one road. I was quite happy when I found it.
  8. Just got accepted to Central Michigan, which I just declined
  9. I will be attending as well, super excited to be going. Already got my place picked out.
  10. LOL, when I saw the quote totally thought you had accepted to Wayne State I was like O NO.....
  11. Yea, some people have posted acceptances as late as may. I know it sucks but I personally said screw it and accepted basically as soon as I got into one I was happy with. Glad I did because everything about it felt and feels good.
  12. Yep, I am amongst the group that has accepted so far, I think almost everyone from the visitation weekend got an offer. Really exciting.
  13. Also I saw that someone else got accepted to purdue, I was just wondering if you would be interested in PMing and chatting. I was at the weekend and was accepted as well. Maybe say hi again.
  14. Shortlist I believe means they have not decided who they are accepting yet and have limited it until some new information comes in(like an invitation weekend) Waitlist means that you are not in the first round of acceptances, but if someone in the first round declines then you have a chance.
  15. Yea, one of my programs said they do nothing notification wise until march 15th, so dont count your chickens until they have delivered their rejection/waitlist/acceptance letters. They also bring eggs so either win/win or neutral.
  16. Just got Colorado State Rejection today. Not concerned but was not sure if anyone else was waiting on them.
  17. Yea I decided to go with ABF Upack, a combined load up at one of their centers and a door drop off in my new location. Only ends up being around 400 bucks. I am under 25 so cant get a truck also this way I have an option of storing it for a month and saving a months rent if I want to. Also I own nothing worth more than 300 bucks anyway so that doesn't bother me. Need to try and sell off more stuff to make sure I get it down to one pod.
  18. Okay, I am only moving about 300 miles and was just wondering if people had any services that they recommended. Really appreciate the info so far though, it is really helpful.
  19. I was looking into one of those movement pods where they drop it off, you fill it, and then they drop it off outside your new place. Any advice on a service for price and good quality?
  20. So I just found out that the lab is going to be open all summer, so I am happy about that. My research experience as well as I-O experience is weak(no I-o classes at my university). So I am going to need all the help I can get to be caught up with my peers.
  21. Anyone else read the january SIOP? First article is about admission criteria and weight for programs. Thought it was quite interesting Also yea, that was my thought process. I am going to wait until I get an official acceptance and then decline interviews/wait list from the other programs. No point in waiting when my decision is basically made.
  22. Doesnt help that this morning when I went to results search it was a sea of green on the front page. Sure it was all other disciplines but still........
  23. Purdue - Interview Ohio University - Interview Central Michigan - Wait List Penn State - Reject Wayne State - Reject Colorado State Cornell - ILR
  24. Not if you go to purdue with me!!!! Seriously another monday, another fresh bout of nervous checking.....O well expect to hear something this week.
