  2. 2018 Interviews and Results Thread

    @Ben Merrill I got into UCSD, too! I actually do medical anthro, but I got in as sociocultural because my POI is with the sociocultural faculty and I don't do psychological anthropology. My POI called me today to let me know. This is my first acceptance so far and I am soooooooooo relieved!!! *exhales*

    @MedAnth2016 Glad to hear that! So apparently the posters are in sociocultural… I wonder if medical anthro applicants are being dealt with separately. I'm so anxious because Northwestern is one of my top choices!

    Are you also applying to the joint medical anthro/MPH program @MedAnth2016? I haven’t received any email from Northwestern and have been panicking since the first interview post on the results site yesterday. ☹️
  5. SOP Mistake: "Sociocultural" instead of "Social"

    Thanks a lot, TakeruK and museum_geek!
  6. I submitted my application to Harvard just in time for the December 15 deadline, and I reviewed my application materials after hitting the dreaded "Submit" button. To my horror, I realized that I had written "Sociocultural Anthropology" in my statement of purpose instead of "Social Anthropology," which is what Harvard offers. I had checked the same document over and over again before uploading it, but as luck would have it, it was too late when I realized my mistake. Do you think I should I write to the DGS to "correct" this mistake or at least to save face by apologizing for it and explaining that I am aware of the differences between "social" and "cultural" and "sociocultural" in terms of academic tradition? Or am I just obsessing about this detail that they probably won't notice or care about?
  7. Gender Studies- fall 2016

    Hi fellow gender studies folks! I was just interviewed for my application to the PhD Comparative Gender Studies program of Central European University. I think I was able to give a few good answers, although I honestly think I could have done better (but then again we can always do better). I only have two applications; the other one is the PhD program at the University of Paris 8. Did anyone else apply for admission to CEU? Or is anyone applying to Paris 8? I'm just so nervous and it would be so nice to hear from others in the same boat!
