    Re: preparation for the fall

    Enjoy the summer is actually pretty good advice.

    Re: Switching Programs?

    Sticky: Re: 2021 Sweat Thread

    It's a little more complicated than that. Most schools (not all) send out more acceptances than they have places. As a result, a small number of people declining offers may not cause the school to go...

  13. Re: Profile Review and Potential Second Admissions Season

    That's a really, really smart thing to do. Wish more applicants followed your advice.
