I had to dig deep in the cookie jar to get this thread to the top. It is probably the most complete thread with the profiles of TMian applicants, their path to glory, and where they have applied.
Please, to all of those who are new to the forum (like I was a month or so ago), feel free to post your profile (iff you are comfortable). This establishes a great way to compare backgrounds, check-up with fellow applicants (if you have applied to the same universities), or have a foundation of information from which to ask questions (and PLEASE feel free to ask questions in the form of a NEW thread--you are sure to get some great, helpful advice).
Pretty soon it would probably be a great idea to start an "official admit/reject thread," since the season is halfway over for most, and completely finished for others. If no one does, I will take the liberty of doing so soon.
Best wishes and fingers crossed (for you, me, and everyone else)
Sometimes the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself.
