Utah, Houston, OU, GSU, Denver, Cincinatti--I think that's all. I applied to eight schools, with FSU (rejection) and TTU (wait list) being the other two.
Houston's sorta been my top choice. I think OU is probably a long shot for me and if I decide to defer I probably won't reapply there. From Utah, I am expecting a rejection--mainly because one of my recommenders sent in her letter WAY past the deadline (by about a month). I didn't find out about this until it was too late for me to do anything about it--I was really peeved, because I had given such explicit directions to my recommenders about deadlines. Oh well.
Good luck to everyone. Ya know, it's funny, I keep telling myself I am totally blase about all this and then I find myself checking this thread and Seth's blog about five million times a day.
I was waitlisted by TTU last year as well, but didn't get in. The grad director seemed like a nice guy; wish I could've landed in Lubbock.
These PhD slots are ridiculously competitive. Amen to the competition. How many open spots and how many applicants? Those numbers, I'm sure, would be less than inspiring. I've been rejected by Georgia, Texas Tech, Illinois at Chicago, and FSU. Accepted at University of North Texas. If I get only one acceptance, I'll feel blessed.
