  1. Applications were due January 2. http://www.umass.edu/history/apply
  2. I got a UMass/Five College program acceptance email from the director of graduate studies in history yesterday (or technically notification that I've been recommended to the graduate school for acceptance). Official offer letter forthcoming in the next few weeks. No idea if they send all of their acceptances at once.
  3. Hello! I am another person who has been following this thread but not posting. Wanted to report that this week I got a yes from Temple (email from director of graduate studies) and a no from Minnesota (I applied to the American Studies dept; letter posted to the online application system). Hope this is useful!
