My little stethoscope app continues to have a life of its own. On Monday the story of its creation was the topic of an article in the Independent Newspaper.

I receive less mail about The PhD Application Handbook but today I had perhaps the nicest feedback so far.

Dear Dr. Bentley,

I wanted to thank you for publishing the PhD application book which has been exceptionally helpful to me.

After graduating in 2004 , I attempted several times to apply for MSc/PhD programs around the world without success.

However, I picked up you book a month back and applied once more using your advice.

I am most grateful to you being a part of my sucess.
