    Fall 2019 Industrial Organizational Psychology PhD

    I got that email on the 17th of January, but I haven't gotten it since then. I remember seeing that someone got accepted in late January though, so I'm not sure what that means for all of us still waiting.

    Haha same, clearly they *really* don't want me
  4. Ah okay, I didn't know that. I just heard from Northwestern and Berkeley a while ago so I thought maybe something was up. Thanks!
  5. Thanks! Unfortunately funding is not guaranteed for all grad students at CUA. Still waiting to hear back...

    Outside Scholarship Search?

    If you do a Google search there are lot's of private scholarships available for $1000 to $3000 range. Many require submission of an essay, but maybe some of the same writing can be submitted to several places. The more places you submit the more chances you have but consider that this could also be time consuming. So submitting to 100 places may need about 100 hours of your time.
  7. Thank you for your response. I think you are right regarding (2); but not with respect to the programs I am referring to: does Ohio State really have much more prestige than Rice? probably not. Moreover, Brown and Cornell's prestige does not seem to be helping them very much. I think this is more so with top 10 programs. Regarding (3), I agree! hence Rice! they have according to that APA funded study on placement almost 40% placement into full time academic jobs. And you can argue that those programs that have good placement but are lowered ranked are so precisely for the reasons that I have mentioned. Take University of Virginia for example. They have excellent faculty that could easily teach at top 20 (like Rice), and offer great funding ($22,000) for living in Virginia including $4000 for summers (the same as Cornell). Same with Emory and Northwestern.
  8. I think with 4.0 GPA you should have no problem!

    MSW Fall 2019 Decisions!!!

    Hi! I didn't apply to VCU, Mason or UNC but I do have friends that did. VCU is conducting most of their interviews (for advanced standing) currently. I also applied to USC and got accepted on 2/4!

  11. They don't send out their decisions until late February!

    Fall 2019 Statistics Applicant Thread

    Anyone knows what's up with Penn State rejecting a lot of seemingly qualified applicants?
  13. I think that depends. And I think in this case, they might rely on the overall reputation of a school, rather than their PhD rankings. If there’s a specific region you’re interested in being in, I’d recommend going to a school that is highly regarded within the area and one that supports life outside the academy. There are a number of schools that will see non-ac jobs as lesser than and will not give you the support you need because they fear it will tarnish their reputation. There are also some schools that have awful relationships with the town they reside in and I think that’s another important thing to consider. We won’t ever know how many people are interested in a specific type of job but it’s a lack of placement which is especially concerning at any school or when a school considers a “scanning specialist” to be a successful placement. There are many jobs which would benefit from a PHD but there are many who a BA Or MA would suffice. I think that’s the difference between good and bad placements.

    Spanish/Hispanic Studies Fall 2019 Applications

    Thanks, Ciboney! I'll take all that into consideration if I end up not being admitted this time. Actually I wanted to apply for at least 5 universities, as most of my American friends suggested me, but I couldn't afford all the fees. Let's see what happens now. OMG that would be my dream! hahaha

    My understanding is that they have an artist in residence who kind of runs the program during their stay. You will probably interview with this person, it looks like Rebecca Ripple is in charge of sculpture. Also, the campus is beautiful, but kind of isolated... about 40 minutes away from Detroit.

    Fall 2019 Industrial Organizational Psychology PhD

    Did anyone else get a weird email from Clemson saying their application is being considered? It's just an email with "helpful links" but its the second time I've gotten it. First time was Jan 3rd... Hopefully it's a sign that I'm still possibly considered? lol...

    Fall 2020 Applicants

    As someone who has done this before, I hope you take my advice. It could save you hours of time applying and hundreds of dollars on application fees. I'd first urge you to see if the names you have given are accepting students at this time. Generally only tenured profs take students (not lecturers, etc). I'd also urge you to check out the current grad student profiles and see how many of them have MAs. My friends who are at Yale, Harvard, NYU, etc all had MAs in art history. I'd also ask you to think specifically why the Northeast only and think about what kind of job you want. A PhD is a long commitment and a lot of work with no job promise. Why do you want it? Note that MANY JOBS (including your first one) may not be in an "ideal location." I had a friend who was stuck in an undesirable location before getting a "better" job in a more urban city. If a job does pop up for you but its not in the Northeast, would you still take it?

    Interviews/Acceptances/Rejections Fall 2019

    I'm actually Anthro but as soon as I saw on the results page that y'all were talking about Syracuse I had to chime in. I applied to their Anthropology PhD program and to my surprise I was accepted. I was really happy and just like you I got an email saying that they were working on getting funding for me even though they didn't have any for me at the moment. I went up to Syracuse for their admitted students weekend where I was told that I was at the bottom of the waitlist for funding and it was very unlikely that I would receive any funding. It would have been nice if they had told me that since the beginning and not wait until I spent money to actually visit a frozen wasteland. 😑 I also heard that the Anthropology department is really not supportive. During my visit I stayed with a POC and they told me that as an international student and also a POC I should really think about my decision because Syracuse tends to be a hostile place. So yeah, if I were you I would definitely reconsider.
