I agree completely. This is the place to vent all those frustrations, can't talk too much about this stuff to friends and family!

Well, in my case, when I see the results page on gradcafe, I realize that all the schools offering admission to the program of my choice and to which I didn't apply to are responding. This is so frustrating ?.

Agh exactly! I just want to know, sigh, and most of my friends' programs have already released so it feels like limbo to me

lol I can relate to this so much. Not specifically about schools changing up their schedules, but just with this whole process in general!

If they don't understand, make a better job of explaining, bring in more tangible examples of what you are going through.

Relax. He’s just posting his thoughts on an anonymous message board while he waits for results, just like everyone else is doing. It doesn’t require therapy or an intervention with family members.

yes! Purdue chem was only a day behind this year  (naturally I didn't get an acceptance) and I still freaked. Some of my other schools don't even have acceptance timeline trends which makes it even more nerve racking.

The thing with me is I applied quite late. just two weeks ago! So even if they sent acceptances last year this time, then I guess I should still not worry too much but HOW CAN'T I???  

Uggghh, just tell me already and put me out of my misery.

Hello there fellow MSE/BME/BioE applicant, I feel your pain as well! I really really really really want to hear back from UW BioE already! Like, commmme oonnnn, just reject me already! It’s fine if you hurt my feels, just pull off the band-aid so I can go ahead and eat my ice cream and cry it out. 

Also, there is nothing wrong with talking to strangers on the internet. I mean, there are scenarios in which it is obviously bad, but this is not one of those time. I feel like you all understand me better than my family and friends sometimes (although I do have some friends who applied or are in PhD programs right now, but you know what I mean). Some of family don’t even know what MSE means and they are probably tired of me talking about grad school apps, complaining about waiting, contemplating every option I may have after all results are out, etc, so it’s nice to find some fellow materials sciencist as well just fellow PhD applicant (aka waiting period suffers). I hope we hear from UW soon!

Ohio State notified me I was waitlisted last year on the 29th; this year the acceptances have gone out but nothing about waitlists/rejections yet.  I know it's only a couple of days but uuugggghhhhhhhh just tell me already, OSU!

It's one of my top choice programs!  I would die to get to work with Suzanne Bost.  Fingers crossed we both get in!

Feeling the same about bioengineering programs this year. I don't know if programs are running behind, or if I really should just give up hope on any more interviews. With each day the silence is more and more painful :( I know it's bad to correlate self-worth with admissions for anything, but it's hard. February doesn't feel good since it seems like most interview weekends are during this month... and it's worse not being able to trust last year's results anymore

Yes, this is real annoying.. 

I had planned my exit from my job by end of this month hoping for a couple of results at the very least.. Either way I have to re-think everything and start life afresh. This is just delaying that process, causing a lot of unbearable anxiety.

This. I talked about my worry to my girlfriend and all she said was, "you are making such a big fuss for nothing."

 

Now I decided just to stay quiet.
