I submitted my application today. However, my recommenders probably won't submit by recommendations for another week or two.

On a side note:

Tomorrow is the Red River Shootout. If you are interested in McCombs, better started getting schooled on Texas Football.

Just got mine in as well. Still need to get one reference in though. Did anyone else notice that they don't accept Visa card? I had to mail a check today.

I'm in Dallas, and there was a line of Texas fans at the bar accross from my office before noon today. Looks like the weather will be nice for the game.

I know this is completely different from the school being a good fit, but Austin is an excellent place to spend 2 years. The weather is tolerable year round, and there is plenty to do while you are not in class. You can find a very nice apartment for cheap if you are willing to commute a few miles.

The school location was a important factor in my school selection. I didn't want to live in a big city like NYC or Chicago, and I didn't want to live in the North (live there for 2 years, it's just too cold, especially since the academic year is going to be mostly cold and gloomy.)

How is everyone handling the optional section of the application where it asks to list other graduate institutions to which you are applying? I hesitate to fill this section in.

I struggled with the same thing, and I eventually listed mine. I thought my possibility of getting scholarship money might be higher if I listed several other competitive programs.

I didn't see the part about other schools that you are applying to, so I didn't fill it out. Guess mine is submitted without that information.

Got an interview invitation on Sunday, so it looks like they are reviewing applications relatively quickly. My last recommendation went in on Friday.
