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!
