I feel it used to be similar to urch, however business PhD applicants are not very active there.
Here, we are more interactive and seniors are active as well.
At gradcafe, members can post their interview/ rejection/ acceptance there, which I feel is useful.
Besides you can search earlier results date in order to estimate when a particular college reverts.
Til now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you...
Hello all and good luck with your applications! For the more experienced members of this forum, has anyone ever received negative repercussions for posting admissions information on here? It seems to me that some universities might frown upon this. I am curious as I would like to post my acceptances/rejections as they occur in case it helps anyone else. However, I wouldn't want this to negatively affect any of my outstanding applications. As others have said, it really isn't that hard to figure out who people are on here if you really want to know. Any comments are appreciated. Thanks!
Overall, I think the market works more efficiently the more that we reduce information asymmetry.
Am applying to 9 places in for CB. By the advice on this forum this wayyyyyy too low and also apparently it isn't too uncommon to get straight rejections
I applied to the following schools
U Chicago - Long shot - Am surprised have not been desk rejected yet (might be because one of my recommenders hasn't sent in the recommmendation )
U of Illinois Chicago
U of Ilinois Urbana Champaign
Taking partial advice of Xanthes, yasvoboden and Sb on here I applied to more realistic fits as well as places where my interests matched somewhat with the faculty. I did run into a bit of trouble in the SOP because I wasnt sure how specific or broadly should i post my research interests. However I would be keeping my fingers crossed hoping for the best
Another, less-optimistic note... I got my interview invites between late January and late Februrary, but my straight-up official rejections came so late that they were obvious. Unfortunately, the rejection was indirectly communicated through silence.
