This is a thread for all us nervous Fall 2009 grad applicants. All my applications are in and all my letters of recommendation were sent in. I don't want to post any stats or profile data until I get my admissions decisions in. Where did you guys apply? What field do you want to pursue (physics, math, engineering, etc.)? What are you guys doing in the mean time? I applied last year, and since I graduated last year, I plan on further pursuing my research interests in differential geometry and mathematical physics and reviewing my analysis, linear algebra, abstract algebra, topology, etc. until Fall 2009. I am also tutoring high school students. And I have to finish typing up papers from my previous research projects. I do not think I am getting into an elite school but I have picked some really solid "safety" schools that have two or three faculty members that I would love to work with. I really hope I can get into a few of the schools I applied to. I am so nervous and I am so close to achieving one of my major goals.
