  1. Feel free to PM if you want to chat about MAPSS!
  2. @hantoo this happened to me when I applied Fall of 2015. I ended up doing MAPSS and am REALLY glad that I did -- I think it has a lot of benefits, including being able to study whatever you want and take whatever classes you want. I think the only downside is the money, but if you petition they end up giving you a scholarship.
  3. @AnthropologyNRTCongratulations!! I might PM you at some point to chat about your process if that's okay? I'm ending my second round of applying now and haven't been fruitful. On that note ...anybody know how likely it is to get admitted off of waitlists? Trying to decide if I need to start looking for jobs...
  4. I found that doing a masters really helped me figure out my specific interests. This is my second round applying to programs - and during my first round, I was only accepted into a masters. I'm glad I did it!
  5. yes please!
  6. Hahaha thanks for the welcome and the laugh, @EvelynD I applied to 4 !
  7. Just received my rejection from Boston. At this point, I'm expecting rejection from Boulder as well since I haven't heard anything other than "you'll get a letter in the mail later this week" -- doesn't sound promising. BOOOO.
  8. I called and they just said it meant I'd be getting a letter in the mail by the end of the week. Not sure what kind of letter, but thought I'd let you know what I found out!
  9. I'm assuming this means waitlist, but I just checked Boulder's portal and have the following message: A decision on your application has been postponed. You will be contacted with details.
  10. Anyone have an idea for Boulder's timeline? Based on former years they do earlyish February. Not sure if there is a more concrete timeline or not.
  11. Anyone claiming the 2 Michigan acceptances? I don't have anything written on my Wolverine App Status 0_0
  12. Likely that Emory PBEE isn't sending more out? Should I accept rejection?
  13. My emotions are all over the place ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ hopefully this is the case!!
  14. Darn. I assume they sent an automated message to all invitees at the same time.
  15. This is good to know - thanks for mentioning it. The wait is killing me too, but it's definitely better knowing that it'll still be a while!!
