    I am right there with you. Scared and confused. Hopefully at the end of this painful process, there is some really good news.

    My frustration is with the early deadline of some of the top schools. December 01! One of my profs is yet to agree to write a LOR! I will be missing out on those schools and hopefully be ready to apply by Dec 13 for others.

    I have submitted both of my applications that have a 12/1 deadline today. What's the earliest I can expect to hear anything back from these folks

    Re: 2019 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    Welcome to the forum all! Glad to see some activity from applicants for the next cycle already. Keep in mind that it's a long process. I know that it doesn't make it easier for each individual, but please try to keep in mind that phd applications are one of the last things on the minds of faculty right now in the U.S. market. The end of semester is fast approaching, which means a lot of teaching duties to wrap up. In addition, there are a lot of faculty openings and candidates this year, as many schools are still in the middle of the new faculty hiring process. To temper expectations a bit, don't expect much news until late February. Typically the phd applicant market will pick up as early as march through april 15th. A lot of waiting ahead, so just settle in for the ride.

    Best of luck to all this year!

    Hi everyone~
    I am looking for someone to prepare for the interview together. I applied for strategy, but I think different major should be fine. We can discuss questions or mock interview. Thanks!
