    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    I believe BU has already made decisions on all incoming students. The faculty I spoke with suggested they have a school-wide finalization of their decisions, and offers have already been sent out.

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    I don't really see what people currently do as a good argument for what I should do. If others might strengthen their applications from transferring, I'd encourage them to do so. If this started to...

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    I would be happy going to the lower ranked school. That's why I applied. I just think I might be even happier at the higher ranked school, and I think getting the Master's at the first school could...

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    It looks like NYU's was due Dec 31st, the same time as PhD applications. I also couldn't find a deadline for WashU.

    Oh that's really interesting. I wish I had known about these earlier, since I think most of the deadlines have already passed. Thank you!

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    Thanks for the useful input, everyone. Are there any links for these predoc programs? I'm not really finding them on Google except for one at NYU, which seems quite competitive.

    Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    With application results coming in, what do people think is best to do if you get into a safety school, but not one of your top choices? Does it make sense to attend the safety, but re-apply to the...

    That's unfortunate that they got your hopes up. You can't always trust GradCafe, but you also can't always rely on interviewer feedback. I think it's just the personality of some people to be...

    For the folks discussing BU, that's just for quant marketing, right? Has anyone heard back from Strategy & Innovation?

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    I'm not sure anyone can really say for sure. Most of these programs interview and accept small numbers of students, so it's usually not like economics or psychology where a cohort is 10+ people. If...

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    Sorry to hear that. For what it's worth, I think people in general are really bad at guessing how an interview went. A lot of it has to do with the personality of the interviewer. Do they like to...

    Interesting. So maybe it's just a matter of low sample size, and 2019 might have had an unusually high number of applicants posting to GradCafe.

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    Is it just me, or does it seem like programs haven't sent out as many notifications by now as they usually do? For OB/Management at Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, Yale, and Chicago, looking at the results...

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    I think it's better to keep everything in one location, and that seems to be Grad Cafe. My bigger worry is that some people might not be posting to Grad Cafe, and with the smaller programs, it's hard...
