To those starting grad school this fall: Where have you chosen to study?

In summary, the conversation discussed where new graduate students have chosen to study after the April 15th deadline. The speaker mentions that they will be attending UC - Santa Barbara and invites anyone else going there to contact them. Another speaker mentions they will be attending UIUC and turned down a fellowship from Cornell. A third speaker also reveals they will be attending UCSB, citing the appeal of the nearby beach as a factor in their decision.

Now that the April 15th deadline has passed, I thought it would be a good idea to find out where all the new graduate students have decided to study. That way, you might be able to find other students going to the same school as you.

I chose UC - Santa Barbara. If anybody else is going there, send me an e-mail or PM.

I will be going to UIUC. I do wish they pay more - I had to turn down a very generous fellowship from Cornell to go there.

I'll also be going to UCSB - couldn't resist the beach.
