To be honest, I'm not sure exactly what else I wrote in the PM, but I don't think it had much more than what it already had on here. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about it though (though I may not respond until after xmas)

Also, whenever you do apply, apply to ALL of the top schools, unless there are one or two you know you wouldn't attend (for me this would have been Chicago, I don't really appreciate the ultra competitive environment). It is somewhat of a crapshoot where you get into. I got into a school which is supposedly in the top 5 in the current rankings with full funding, but was not offered funding at a school ranked around 10, and rejected from a school not ranked in the top 15. So, IMO, your best bet is apply to the entire top 10 and maybe 5-10 other schools that you like. This is costly in terms of money since most apps cost around $50 or more, but if you're going to be spending 4 or 5 years someplace it makes sense to invest upfront in finding a good match.

I don't think this can be overstated. I applied to seven non-safety schools and got into two. If i had applied to fewer schools, I might not have gotten into any of schools I really wanted to go to (this happened to several people I know).
