On the Rejection letter

Of all the snippets I've heard in the past year of this person and that person applying to a PhD program, virtually no one has been accepted. The only success story I've heard recently is a friend getting into vet school. At least there's some solidarity but man, it's a bad year. Does anyone see any evidence that 2010 will improve, in terms of funding in academia?

Hopefully! Our PhD program was frozen this year: no new admits. They hope to re-open it for fall '10.

Also, didn't the sciences just announce an 8% increase in grant money? Hopefully it all means good things.
