    Sorry for delay on this. Life happens.

    As usual, this is a place to share info and your anxiety/joy as the admission process unfolds.

    Good luck to all and don't be jerks.

    Thank you so much, tm_member!

    Submitted all my applications. What should I do between now and late February? I just can't resist checking GradCafe every day.

    Same here, I managed to get to the end of 2019 without too much anxiety, but now we're in the new year the excitement/terror is building! How many places have you applied to?

    I am super anxious too, have been following urch for a while, so decided to join in I have applied to 15 places although depending on how the results go, I may apply to a couple more European places where the application deadline is later as safeties. How about you?

    I've applied to 14 places in the US, and also MPhil in Economic Research at Cambridge which I've already been rejected from. If I don't get into any of the US programs then I'll be applying for an MSc in the UK, most of those applications are open until August so plenty of time if it's all bad news come April!

    Iíve applied to 17 places. Totally broke after the application... have you considered a full time RA position if things are really that bad? Thatís what my professor advised me to do... but hopefully we can all get into the program we want!

    Hi there! That's what I'm thinking too. But I'm not sure if there will be open RA positions in late Feb or early March? Trying to decide whether I should apply to RAships now or after I get tons of rejections...

    Maybe there will be some openings in the fall?That practically means we will be wasting at least half a year. And can we decline the RA offer? I have the impression that economics academia is a small circle.
