I think if you did a scientific study, you would find applying to graduate schools takes years off of your life.

I have until Monday to accept at Memphis, which I'm really excited about (I would get to be a TA, I like the course structures, cheap cost of living, etc). There were only two or three schools I would choose above Memphis. As it is, I am waitlisted at two of them (NC State and UNC Wilmington), and will not know if I have a spot until around April 15... 15 days after I must accept to Memphis.

On top of this, I haven't heard a peep from six other schools. So, essentially I'm about to accept an offer without knowing where I stand in half of the programs I applied too.

It's a good thing I like Memphis.

I think this liking of Memphis is at least partially due to this year's Final Four...
