  1. Hi All. I am also still awaiting Columbia (confirmed complete feb 17) ahh. Looked at my portal today saying they are awaiting my official transcripts from my undergrad. Are those needed to make an admissions decision? they have all my unofficial ones from my original application so wondering why they asking for them now so late (update: turns out I was a few seconds too early and just got my acceptance!)

  2. An update for everyone! My friend just called the GH office. They had mentioned that no domestic admission decisions (whether it is acceptance, waitlist or rejection) have went out as of yet. They are still in the process of finalizing things, and we should be hearing back in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully we hear back sooner rather than the next couple of weeks

    I just received my acceptance a couple days ago! They sent an email stating that the full time 2 year program is full and would I be ok with the part time 3 year, so I'm going part time which is probably so much better for me right now anyway. Yay! Finally. Applied pretty close to the due date found out May 3rd.

  5. I'm currently at the end of my first year in the program, and I just found out the SSHRC funding is for 4 years 2021 through 2025. Hope this helps with your planning/processing.

  7. https://forms.gle/rDGCM96mvcdHbEqCA Please forward this survey to anyone you know that is in CSD/SLP/SPLH or interested in applying for SLP or AUD grad programs! Hi all! When applying, I found it pretty difficult to get a sense of what the GPA ranges for admitted students meant for my application, and would have loved a bit more information. As this is data that programs likely gather already, I plan to propose a request for changes to the data that Edfind displays. I created a survey to determine if these changes would be supported by other students! There are questions

  8. THANK YOU to your friend for doing that for to you for sharing that information. Helps a lot. I'm going to stop checking Mosaic every hour 😆. Since everyone's been saying that they said we'll hear back by mid-May, I'm going to hope we hear back next week!

  9. A note to any future SSHRC-hopefuls who are direct applicants and browsing this thread for information about the process: I just found out from my new grad studies department that my name came on the list of SSHRC recipients for the university. So it does appear that even direct applicants could ask their departments/grad studies offices about the SSHRC results in cases where SSHRC is slow to upload results or there are technical errors. (Of course, departments/universities are not supposed to share results with applicants before they hear from SSHRC but in cases where it's been over a we

  13. For all those waiting on Columbia's decision, I received an updated letter in the portal last night(a rejection) after being on the wait list since March 26th(originally applied in Dec). They said they would let me know in early May so they are right on time. I graduated with a 3.86GPA/Cum Laude from a State school and have over 2000+ hours of social service hours, and I applied to the full time, 2 year, in person, clinical program. I have already committed to BC but know lots of people are waiting so hopefully this helps!

  15. Hey Everyone, First time posting but I have found comfort in reading this forum over the past couple months knowing I wasn't the only one stuck. I received my official rejection about 20 minutes ago. I expected it but at least it's for sure now. Happy I can email my references to thank them and let them know the outcome rather than being left in the same joke of a waiting game I was. I've now accepted a graduate certificate in mental health and disability management starting in September. Congratulations to all of those who were accepted

  23. For everyone figuring out how to accept you may: 1. Open the result letter (it is one of four letters you would have received from SSHRC). 2. Scroll to its bottom to the link for Tri-Agency Research Training Award Holder’s Guide on the SSHRC - Scholarships and Fellowships (sshrc-crsh.gc.ca) 3. Open link and click on through to the guide - NSERC – Tri-Agency Research Training Award Holder’s Guide (nserc-crsng.gc.ca) 4. Click on acceptance or decline of award. For SSHRC, you need to email appropriate program contact - scholarshipsadministration@sshrc-crsh.gc.ca 5. What y

  25. Heller grad here. (Sorry, I always check Grad School Cafe late in the application season.) You've probably already made your decision. I was accepted at better schools but went to Heller. I don't regret the decision because I am debt adverse. However, you may, so I just want to put out there what I think. Heller upsides: Gives lots of scholarship money. Yes, it may be a cash cow for Brandeis, but what they charge students often pales in comparison to what similar grad schools charge. My impression was that an applicant's potential contribution in the classroom meant more than anything whe

  26. I find this thread very interesting. A little insight from a (much) older PhD student... I got my MA back in 2009. My colleagues who went on to complete their PhDs in 2015 all landed jobs at excellent (top-tier) universities, because we went to an top-tier university. (Many of you probably already know this but, historically, you educate up to work down. Those who get PhDs at Ivy League schools have the largest application pool, from the Ivies to really excellent liberal arts colleges or state schools, all the way down the rankings. Those who get PhDs at great state schools will have to

  27. They said: Admission decisions will be sent via email by mid-May for domestic students. Which could insinuate that decisions simply have not been sent out yet. I'm surprised because they said mid-May last year too, but people heard back beginning May 1.

  30. One more tip: advanced readers are rare but they do exist. Depending on the language, Dunwoody Press (which was dead for a long time and is now reviving its old glory) published many such readers for laughably less-taught languages. Since many of these books are out of print, it is worthwhile to search on WorldCat or your university library catalog. If you are already quite acquainted with the grammar, even a reader whose auxiliary language is other than English (the Soviets were good in publishing readers) can be useful for you -- you just need graded, well-chosen texts for your practice.

  32. I second what TsaranfProphet said. I'll only add that if you can, find a book that comes with answer keys for the exercises. Not all of them do. Having an answer key makes a huge difference for self study. It also helps quite a bit to have someone who's proficient in the language you will be studying, whether a faculty, a grad student, a friend, etc. so that if you get stuck on anything and the textbook/answer key provide no insight, you have someone to turn to. Answer keys are invaluable, but there are limits to what they are suitable for.

  33. I might have the necessary expertise in that. A good way is to find an older textbook of the "grammar and reader" genre, which will take you through graded reading and translation exercises to functional reading proficiency. Then, by reading, you'll acquire speed, vocabulary, and skill in reading this language.

  36. I'd look at UCLA and Johns Hopkins for as they are probably the centers of continental thought in the US. But lots of programs will have some theory professors who do continental thought and would be able to supervise what you are interested in. I'd look at the theory faculty in all programs in the top-50 ish and see where you'd be a good fit. Applications are tough and many qualified applicants do not get in anywhere so I'd encourage you to apply broadly.

  37. Hi Fkarachi, my department (PhD) would definitely read your application and would probably discount your low GPA if all of the other aspects of your file were extremely strong. I do suspect lots of people would be concerned though. I would think that if you have a strong writing sample you would be a good candidate for the good MA programs. And I do think if you had a very strong writing sample that PhD programs would consider you, but I think you'd have better luck by first going to an MA program and developing a more consistent academic record there. It's easy for people who are not currentl

    Late summer, early fall. As many as you can afford. It's nice that some faculty think that students have $800 for admissions... that was not my case.

  40. For lit studies programs, your proficiency in language is not a factor in applications (an exception might be if you are planning on studying medieval literature but even then, I don't think coming in with no Latin/Old French knowledge is necessarily a dealbreaker). If you are trying to bolster your lit studies applications, your time would be better spent improving your statement of purpose and writing sample. For comp lit, it most definitely is necessary to have proficiency in another language, so it really just depends on what programs you will be applying for. I see you've not

  41. With all due respect, you have been advised many times to turn down partially funded offers, virtual programs, cash cow programs, and other really bad options. What makes you think a worse option would warrant a different response? Call me a grumpy old timer, but it seems to me that the responses to all your other posts aren't getting through. So let me put this as simply as possible: do not apply to, let alone consider an offer from, a program that will require you to pay anything out of pocket. Full stop.

  42. Based upon your previous threads about choosing a thesis topic on firstly "Rebutting Ann Coulter" then "Islam & Woman", it sounds like you didn't really know (i) what would make an appropriate thesis topic (ii) how to go about writing a comparative literature thesis (i.e, that it needs to be based off a few pieces of primary literature). You were also changing your mind pretty quickly about what you wanted to write. I can imagine that if your advisor thought you were ill-prepared to write a thesis he might have second thoughts about advising you.
