Women's/Feminist/Gender Studies Fall 2017

Thank you both! That was very helpful @hj2012

I've been offered a stipend that requires I work as a TA, RA, or graduate assistant. I don't know if it would be for the department or an individual professor. I have some meetings coming up with professors for whom I'd be interested in working as an RA, and they said they'll tell us about "research opportunities" at admit day, so we'll see!

Hi everyone! Congrats to all those who have received acceptances! I was just curious if anyone has heard anything back from UCLA? I'm wondering whether its just over now for those who haven't heard anything by this point.

Hello all! I didn't know you were here, or I would have joined the conversation earlier! Congrats to all who have been accepted to their dream programs! I am here to commiserate with those also languishing on a wait list. I was invited to Emory for the recruitment weekend and promptly rejected after floundering in one of my interviews, so now all of my hopes are riding on being accepted into Rutgers from the wait list. I called the department to check on the situation, but all I know is that those admitted have until April 15th to accept or decline, so there's not much comfort in that.  It's a long shot, but it's all of I've got at the moment. Good luck to everyone else currently on wait lists!

Hello fellow feminists!
 

I will be starting a MSW (Master of Social Work next fall) but I want to take the Feminist and Gender Studies Graduate Option as well since my topic is really tied to feminism.
