    My status date changed on 5/25 but the status was still pending. It was updated again today (5/28) and my proposal was declined.

    Lol my advisor has been asking me daily whether I heard from WG or not. I think maybe we'll hear something next week?

    I think so! My friend (received it last year) told me that's pretty standard for WG.

    I just got an email requesting more information, while also saying there is no need to resubmit for 5/1!
  5. Thank you so much! I would love that! I definitely need as much help as I can get.
  6. well I am definitely going to contact POIs as early as possible, rewrite my SOP to make it more detailed and personal, maybe get a editor to oversee it for me, apply to more MA programs, work as a RA in my old lab to get some publication...etc btw, can I PM u to ask about how u ask for feedback?

    I am waiting on MSU (which is killing me with the tardiness) and all my MA programs

    Hey, I didn't post on the result page but I got a rejection from CUNY yesterday (biological anthropology), so if you haven't heard anything I suppose it's a good thing?

    I am in the same boat as well!!! Just threw in 3 more applications for master programs because I am not holding my breath for the remaining PhD programs. Is it bad that I am still hoping for miracles? Because I can't help it Just know you are not alone, Skylarking. I found that it gives me so much strength knowing someone else is going through the same process and literally in the same situation with you. I am so glad we have each other for support.

    Rejection woes.....

    After 3 consecutive rejections now my mind is actually at peace, first cut is always the deepest, now I am just numb...

    Did anyone heard from MSU? There is one acceptance posted like a week ago but I would think there should be more and I haven't heard a thing. Judging by results form previous year it seems like their typical timing is end of Feb./early Mar. I know this is kinda silly but it's the only phd program left that I think I have a shot so I just want to know...just to get over all this

    Got 2 more rejections over the past week...now I am in a weird dilemma...part of me want to know but part of me just don't wanna hear bad news anymore

    I need genuine advice (and hugs)

    Hi, colorless I am an international applicant, I am in my late 20s and I already have a MS in another field, my results so far are not looking good (2 rejections) so you might find our situation very similar. I think everything that needed to be said are said, so I am just gonna say if I were you, I would definitely go for the MA, it's a good program, it's a way for you to meet other scholars and do something that can be added to your CV, so that you can come out as a much stronger applicant. Just think it as a way to achieve your ultimate goal, which I assume is getting a PhD. I applied for a few MAs myself, and I've met people with multiple MS/MAs, I think it's quite common in the field of anthropology. As for the cost/funding part, I would suggest you maybe don't relocate your family until you are all settled in the States, once you are in the program, you can apply for funding and/or find work, just give it a year or two until you are financially stable. Maybe you can apply for a student loan(or something with very low interest rate)? However, you have your concerns and thoughts, so ultimately you have to be the one to make the decision. Good luck and we all support you.

    Me too...I am in my late 20s and I have a MS in another field, so I know my chances are slim but I just went for it...I also applied for a few master program though, just think it as a way for you to get closer to your ultimate goal...if I don't get funding I'll probably apply for a loan in my country I am so sorry to hear that, and I do know it's hard but you can't give up just yet after everything I am still waiting to hear form UF, it's been FOREVER, seems like A LOT of people have gotten their admission/rejection but I heard NOTHING
