  1. I’ve been mentally prepared to wait til early 2019 so today is my last day of mental freedom before I start freaking out too ?
  2. Why is that? What subfields are you looking at? We all have a little bit of imposter syndrome I’m sure
  3. UC Santa Barbara... and OMG Grey's hahahaha I would be sooo into it too! Did you finish applying to all your schools? I just have Boston left and will do that first thing in the New Year since the deadline isn't until January 7th and my bank account needs a break. Good luck to you!
  4. Nice! I like the Denver area more than Seattle, but liked Washington's program more...
  5. We have a very similar focus and quite some overlap in our schools too :) I'm looking to do sociolinguistics and applying to Georgetown, NYU, UPenn, Stanford, U Washington, McGill, Boston U and Michigan. Thanks for starting this thread! I'll be interested to see how everyone's doing and how the apps turned out. Are you pretty squared away on the apps at this point? My first deadline is December 1 (a week from today!) and last one is January 7.
  6. I'm a prospective applicant for Fall 2019. I'm researching programs and assembling application info now. My request to meet with staff at a department I'm interested in was accepted and meeting arranged. What can I do to best prepare for this? Are there specific questions I should (or shouldn't) ask?
  7. I'm 30, and haven't been really maintaining word in academia or research, although I have been involved. I'm especially nervous because I'm really clueless as to how competitive I am, but one of my recommenders (who is very strong and notable in the field) said it wasn't uncommon to be applying for my PhD at this age and knew my application and still encouraged it. I'm lucky because my partner and I are both willing and able to move depending on if/where I get in, although I couldn't really imagine making such a transition if our circumstances were much different, it's both a good time f
  8. Hey, everyone who heard from Berkeley so far... could you let us know your concentration or the POI (if that is kosher)?
  9. Yep, Georgetown is great for socio, but no guaranteed funding, which is such a shame!
  10. Yep- same boat! Where all are you applying to? And good luck!!
  11. As I told fuzzylogician, Tnot many programs have this information readily available, although Yale does, and their 55% completion rate was sobering, especially as it was a top tier school! When I saw that, I did research to find the national average was about 56%, so Yale was below that! Naturally there are a variable of reasons, but I was curious to investigate and/or hear any firsthand accounts.
  12. Totally understandable, and I certainly agree. I should say though, that not many programs have this information readily available, although Yale does, and their 55% completion rate was sobering. When I saw that, I did research to find the national average was about 56%, so Yale was below that! Individual programs probably say a lot though, as you suggested.
