I have started emailing people from dif schools and everytime I get the same msg :
your application is complete and is reviewed by the review committee. We will notify you as soon as the decisions are made.
WHAT THE HELL!!
I'd avoid doing that if possible... they may get annoyed at unwanted e-mails and that could count negatively for you when they finally
get to your application.
The waiting is annoying me too. I just want to hear something, even if it's just from my safety. This reminds me of waiting for the GRE scores... though this is the real deal. This is the end!
Taking grad classes is quite normal for the potential theory student, usually in their last year. And it's not really a big deal. Grad classes trends to be easier in term of grading anyway. It only looks hard in the beginning. I guess it's hard for someone who has never taken one and in that kind of environment imagine taking grad class
That's why I said earlier that it's not too hard to get a PhD at some places. Surely graduate physics material is insanely challenging and not everyone can do it, but most professors are merciful with grading and will pass everyone.
I find it funny that students often get e-mails informing them of fellowships and visiting student days without explicit confirmation that they've been admitted. I've seen this many times in past year's threads, they usually get an acceptance letter later but this is so strange!
plz god help me find a (smokin hot) girl, and be raped by her!
Sorry RG, it just won't happen. Due to the sex drive asymmetry discussed on the earlier thread, it would be impossible for a guy to be raped by a smokin' hot girl for three reasons:
1) A girl would never desire a guy enough to want to rape him.
2) She could always get another top notch guy to bang her anyway.
3) A smokin' hot girl would never have to pressure a guy into sex.
Ps. I am pretty sure with the comment like this one I must have warded off many people on this forum.
But hey, this is all fun people, nothing personal!
Just imagine the undergrad class of 2015 looking back on this year's threads... what are they going to think when they see the things we've talked about, haha?
I am pretty sure there does not exist any Jessica Simpson who would be attracted to 990 PGRE!! no offense people, but this is the truth!
I think many of them are attracted to things such as intelligence and potential for success. As long as the guy isn't bad looking, it's huge bonus points... The problem with the 990 GRE is that they don't know how to interpret it...
"Hey Lauren I got a perfect score on the physics GRE."
"Great job! I got a perfect score on my second accounting midterm."
eehhh you get the idea... But any girl will understand, "Hey I'm going to MIT."
It looks like based on KB's list that if we're really lucky we could hear something in as early as 3 days from caltech... but however, since 1/27 is a Sunday this year... looks like that won't happen, haha.
