  1. Congratulations to all fellows and honorable mentions!! I unfortunately did not get it. I did receive my feedback comments though....it seemed one reviewer absolutely loved it, but the other one did not, which is frustrating. Can't win over everybody I guess.
  2. First time applicant here too!! I am happy everything is in, but the waiting game will be a struggle.
  3. I talked with current students and they said 3 core classes at once is the best. I am taking 2 core, 2 colloquiums (they are participation based), and TAing, which is 14 credits (you need 12 to be full time). They told me that my schedule would be challenging but doable.
  4. For those not with SHORE, are you waiting it out or looking for an off-campus apartment?
  5. Have you guys enrolled in courses yet? I am not sure if we need a certain number of credits or courses to be full-time. Is it 12 you think? Also, I haven't heard anything about graduate housing, do you think it is impossible to get it before September?
  6. Hey guys!! I accepted my offer at UCSD last week!!! I am so excited!!! I am kinda worried about housing. I applied for graduate housing, but in the huge chance that I do not get it before the start of the term, are you guys looking at housing elsewhere?
  7. I am still waiting on a few schools, but it looks like UCSD with full funding for me!
  8. Still haven't heard back from them, but I am still hoping! Which subfield are you?
  9. Anyone know if University of Iowa has finished sending out decisions? I saw a couple admits on the results awhile back, but I just wanted to see if there will be more.
  10. Just got a recruitment weekend invite email for UCSD that said they are still sending out invites!! Should be in the next couple of weeks.
  11. So the email was your typical acceptance email, no info on other applications. "Congratulations! I am pleased to inform you that you have been admitted as a graduate student for Fall 2015 to the Ph.D. program in Anthropology majoring in Anthropology at the University of California, San Diego. As a leading institution for graduate studies, UC San Diego strives to attract and retain the best and the brightest graduate students from across the country and around the world. You have been selected from an elite group of applicants and it is our sincere hope that you will elect to join our campus community." I know they reviewed applications on 2/2 and decided who to admit then. I am not sure if they are still sending out emails. My status online has changed if that helps. My POI gave me a skype interview to tell me informally about my admittance and funding last week.
  12. That was me!
  13. Has anyone heard from Emory PBEE program?
  14. AHHH!!! I just want to know!!
