A long time back I wrote a then quite popular article called [[http://floatingsun.net/articles/apping-for-dummies|Apping for Dummies]], intended as a guide to those overwhelmed by the graduate application process, based on my experiences. For some time it was the most viewed content on my web site. Some where during the subsequent rewrites of the web site, unfortunately, I lost track of the article. It was [[http://floatingsun.net/data/articles/apping.html|still available]], but the formatting was all broken and it wasn’t linked from anywhere and so over time it lost all its Google juice and was lost in cyberspace.
Well, I have now resurrected it at [[http://floatingsun.net/articles/apping-for-dummies/|its new location]]. Most of the content remains unchanged, but hopefully it will now be more easily accessible and some people will still find it useful :-) As always, comments and feedback are much appreciated!
