Hello guys I'm a current PhD student who just finished his first semester. I am not too fond of the research being done at my current institution and am adamant on transferring. I applied to three schools, but I'm not sure how realistic of a shot I have, and if I should prepare starting now to attempt another round of applications next year in case this one goes bad. Last year I applied to 15 programs and got rejected from 12. What do you all think?
