  1. With all sincerity I meant no harm and was just sharing information. I didn't know you could post links as I'm fairly new at posting on this particular board. Some boards have prohibited the posting of links in the comments section. There is some truth to to socapp2017 post, out of the 9 PhD programs I applied to, I did get rejected from 5, but interviewed at 2 and received an offer ($20,000 fellowship/GA) from one so far. Good luck to you all.
  2. Hello, Interesting question, I never thought about negotiating a graduate funding package so I googled "can you negotiate graduate funding" and actually found older posts from gradcafe, I doubt I can place links here, so how about you google it and see what comes up.
  3. This post was the bomb dot com😂. Finished my interview and it went well. While on the tour, I received an acceptance to a masters program, so that was a total surprise
  4. U-WISCONSIN-Mad rejected my app for Civil Society by mail. Nothing for Ohio state though.
  5. I heard from Penn State in the post. Of the ten PhD programs I applied to, I have been officially rejected by 3 (Kent and Penn State, U of Wisconsin), because it's so late in Jan, I seriously doubt I will get more interviews.
  6. Official rejection letter from Penn State. I knew it was coming. Hope the two interviews I have work out.
  7. I called them. I don't think I'll get it as someone on gradcafe said they received admission via email. This morning Kent state denied me as well.
  8. Ohio says pending for me as well. I was rejected from U of Wisconsin's Civil Society program, Penn State says I'll get something in the mail (assume a rejection).
  9. I applied to 10 PhD programs and have been rejected by three schools already. I am pissed but ok at the same time if that makes any sense. I do have 2 interviews, however nothing is guaranteed.
  10. Sorry for the reposts. I accidentally responded wrong, several times I now realize. You can email the program to verify the info.
  11. I contacted the program. It is the avg of both scores. My apologies, I was told they usually accept 4-7, not 7-10.
  12. I also applied to this program for 2017. B.A in Honors Psychology : Summa Cum Laude (3.95). Honors Thesis, McNair Scholar. I don't think I have much of a shot though. My GRE scores were terrible 156 V, 136Q, AW 3 I understand they receive 100-125 apps and accept 7-10 ppl. Any GRE scores above 70 percentile get reviewed. I contacted the program.
