  1. wonderful advice! Thanks I will do that
  2. Thanks everyone! It does appear the UGA is investing heavily in Southern History. I am curious what the etiquette is for 'cold-calling' a current grad student? Or should I just request the name of a graduate student from the director of graduate studies and take there advice with a heavy dose of salt? Perhaps some current grad students or people who have done this can comment. I would, of course, like the most honest assesemnt possible and I am I little nervous the student chosen by the DGS will make a 'sales pitch'
  3. Hi all, I am curious if any of you have experience or opinions about the University of Georgia? I am an admitted (with full funding) international student studying 19th Century Southern History and the faculty and resources look great but I have no peers who have attended to consult. Thanks
  4. Hi everyone, I am applying to MA programs to study transnational African American culture. I have been accepted to Indiana, The Ohio State University, Wisconsin-Madison and waiting on UCLA. If anyone has any information on these programs I would appreciate it! Also, Is it fair to assume that UCLA has already sent out all there acceptances? Thanks
  5. Hi all, I am also a little late to the website this season. I am wondering if anyone has experience or information on the Department of Afro-American Studies at Wisconsin-Madison? The faculty looks great and I have heard lots of positives about the city and school but I have not seen or heard much about the department itself. Thanks!
  6. Thanks for the replies. I was hoping that the lack of chatter on the results board for UT-Austin indicated some invitations were yet to go out.
  7. Hi all, Short time lurker here I just discovered this site today while 'googling' admissions results and I am trying to catch up. I see some Minnesota admits on the results page and on this discussion group. Does Minnesota stagger their admissions or are we to assume all the invitations have gone out? Also, there was mention of UT Austin having completed a shortlist for a recruitment weekend. Does anyone know if all of those invitations have been sent. Thanks
