    I really love the Knowing Animals podcast that discusses animal studies.

    Ohh okay! That makes it much easier!! You could try that and you might also ask the DGS to clarify?

    I think if you’re just sharing the information with your advisor/mentor then that’s okay. It’s important, in my opinion, to take funding offers into consideration when deciding between programs. After all, you do have to live there for several years and need to be able to support yourself. That said, some larger offers are also in relation to a much higher cost of living in a particular area. You could also try talking to current graduate students about cost of living, without, of course, revealing what you’ve been offered. I’d imagine they could give you a much more accurate understanding of how far your stipend will go.

    I’d say funding and job placement are the reasons programs admit very small cohorts now.

    Thanks! No, they didn’t but I feel like I’ve heard CUNY admits a rather large cohort, somewhere around 20 students. Someone correct me if I’m wrong. Also, I received a personal email from a professor at 9:18pm CST so I think it’s fair to assume they are notifying individually, at various times. Fingers crossed for you!! Good luck!

    Great news! Congrats!!
  12. @bpilgrim89 I've been waitlisted at Michigan this morning and they are definitely a top choice for me. However, the email said to respond to the graduate program manager rather than the DGS. Do you have any advice on how to handle this? Should I respond in the same way I would to the DGS? I've emailed my advisors to ask them as well but thought you might have some additional information.

  14. Waitlisted at Michigan! I'm excited and disappointed at the same time. lol
