    Sticky: Re: 2021 Sweat Thread

    No idea, but it would be very early for them. The first school I applied to that's had something on gradcafe so I'm :eek:

    A lot of schools are doing extended winter breaks and then condensed...

    Any idea if they've actually cut their cohort target size in half, or just their admission offers? I imagine with all the weirdness this year schools might be a little more conservative in making...

    Too early to tell how this cycle is going to go. There's a lot of randomness and noise in admissions, and you can get rejected from an "easier" school and get into a "harder" one. There's lots of...

    Re: UMichigan results?

    This is good to hear, thank you for sharing. My biggest anxiety this year is getting disappointing results and always wondering how much of an effect the virus had, and what would've happened if I'd...

    Re: UMichigan results?

    Also really good info, a little more in line with how i'd thought the process worked. I'd love to put the same questions to you -- would you share anything about how COVID has effected the amount of...

    Re: UMichigan results?

    To echo everyone else, thank you for this information, it really helps to get a look behind the scenes.

    Would you be willing/able to share any insight as to how this year is different, because of...

    Maybe offers will be coming out both a little earlier and more slowly than in prior years? I guess adcoms are guessing at our behavior just like we're guessing at theirs, maybe their process changes...

    It freaks me out too, though as Startz pointed out somewhere a few weeks ago we don't know whether more people are applying or if a normal amount of people are applying to more schools. Freaked out...

    I think Stanford usually has an early 1st round. I didn't apply there, but I went through the last two years of gradcafe results for all my schools the other day and put together an "expected 1st...

    Re: Gun violence: Cities to avoid

    If you get a funded offer from the University of Chicago, unless you have another funded offer from another top school you like better, you should take it. I disagree strongly that Chicago is a city...

    As far as I can tell that's pretty rare... I think we've got 4 more weeks until acceptances really get going.
  13. Re: Does anyone know if the number of applications increase this year?

    Understood, thanks for the insight here. Just gotta buckle in for the ride really, hoping other schools are also able to accept a fairly normal class size.

    So I went through this whole process two years ago. I got my first acceptance at the very end of January, and starting in February there were several schools sending out offers every week,...
  15. Re: Does anyone know if the number of applications increase this year?

    yikes.. I wonder how this compares to spike after the Great Recession.

    Do you have any insight into the amount of deferrals from last year and the extent to which this year's target class size is...
