Budget Cutoff Threats in 2011 and their Impact

    Okay so I'm thinking that these budget cuts might reduce the number of graduate students many of these universities can take. And as a result, they might make graduate admissions at these universities more competitive. I'm considering applying to the universities with less stringent budget cuts - not only because they might make graduate admissions more competitive, but also because they might decrease the quality of the graduate student experience too. Do I have a valid concern in this?

    I'm mostly focusing on astrophysics departments although I might also apply for physics departments.
