  1. Also received my rejection today. Email giving notice of online status. Best of luck to all else.
  2. Hi Kelly, I haven't given up all hope, but I'm also a bit pragmatic - getting an early invite seems to bode better than not, and getting in without an invite at all seems nearly impossible. I take pride in my background, but I wouldn't think my background is sufficiently better than anyone else's to warrant that. So, finger crossed, but also don't want to set myself up for more disappointment. Only time will tell though and I'm still anxious to hear either way for sure.
  3. Hard to ever know, I suppose. I have 7 years in an urban district in a school that gets national recognition for the work we do to improve learning. High poverty rates, high homelessness. I love this work, but also want to do more systems-wide. I've been involved in several reputable national teacher-leader efforts, have an MEd and JD from reputable schools, and have a clear vision of where I would like my work to go in my career. Professionally, I finally thought I had a competitive resume. But, even with all that someone's gotta fall short. The hardest part was telling my children
  4. Yeah, I'm bummed too. I suppose it's possible we were both so awesome we got in without interviews? ? But I'm not betting the farm on it.
  5. The EdLD is the only program I applied for. I have too many student loans already to find a program that isn't fully-funded and my interests are more practical, hands-on like the EdLD than academic. :/ Figuring that I just didn't have enough to get it done this go. :/ Best of luck to all.
  6. I'm about to give up hope. I've heard nothing and the day is short now. Kinda sick to my stomach today. :/
  7. Congrats Yogi! I haven't received one either. If I do I'll let everyone know.
  8. Thanks Edccm! Curious how common it is to get accepted without an interview. Sounds like not getting an interview isn't dispositive, but yikes - seems a long shot to get in without one. I'll be sure to post if I'm fortunate enough to grab an interview. Good luck EdLDers!
  9. Think this is the week interview emails are sent?
  10. Has anyone else heard back? Wishing you all the best as invites come out.
  11. And that's the rub, right? We answer the questions, scour the info on what typical admitees look like, but really don't know what eventually goes into final decisions. As it gets closer to February I find myself checking my inbox more often. We'll see.
  12. Yes. Getting a bit anxious. But I know it's beyond my control and I did my best.
  13. I did not. The EdLD is not a research doctorate like a PhD is. It's experiential and practice driven. I don't think we have a similar need to mention faculty.
  14. Congratulations everyone! Best of luck to you all in the interview stage. Sounds like those of us applying for the EdLD have a few more weeks to wait it out. It's been 13 years since I lived in Boston and haven't been back since, so getting an interview and being able to visit would itself be wonderful. To everyone else still waiting to hear, fingers crossed!
  15. I was asking on the other thread, but curious if y'all know whether the trip to campus for interviews is paid for by HGSE if we get invited or if we have to cover costs ourselves. The PhD interviews are over Skype, but the site says ours would be on campus: "Once all applications have been reviewed, HGSE will invite selected Ed.L.D. applicants to campus for a day of required interviews (both individual and group) with members of the admissions committee. Interviews will take place on February 23-24, 2017."
