  1. Thank you! I will message you after I take my next GRE ( probably late August). You will be busy starting your program at UMass! <3 Maybe I will see you there next year though! ( Fingers crossed!)
  2. I think your GRE scores are great! I aspire to earn those scores. I think as long as your LOR's and Personal Statement are good you have a good chance.
  3. Have you contacted any POIs? Do you have any advice on that..?
  4. Umass & UConn definitely, if my GRE scores are high enough I'll look more into other schools. I would like to focus on the Sociology of Education.
  5. Hi Jacobin, Sorry for the late reply! I applied to UMass, UConn, UAlbany, and Harvard ( just because). I believe I was not accepted due to my GRE scores. I once worked in Grad Admissions (Masters, not doctorates) and the GRE (plus other exams) were looked as just a formality. I should have put much more effort into attaining a higher score. I recently retook the GRE, but will need to take it again. I am going to do a prep course and pray I get high enough scores to even be considered. I will probably have one better LOR than before and I am also adding a second writing sample ( current work in progress). Do you have any other tips or advice?
  6. I figured I'd go ahead and start this thread. I know it's a bit early, but who's ready? This will be my second cycle. I was rejected from four schools this past cycle, but according to one of my favorite songs, "You've got to lose to know how to win" (Aerosmith /\A/\). I know what I need to do this time around. I'm ready. Were you rejected this year? Or will this be your first time? What schools are you considering? Good luck everyone. A year from right now (2/24/17) we will have good news to share with each other.
  7. I agree. It seems this letter has gone out to quite a few people. There have been a few reports of people being wait listed, but no acceptances yet to my understanding. I am not very hopeful though and my guess is rejection. I hope I am wrong!
  8. I received an e-mail this morning to check the portal and mine still says applied as well.
  9. I also applied to UConn with low GRE's. How low are your GRE's? Was your undergrad in soc? GPA? Do you have a masters?
  10. Since I found this forum two weeks ago, I check it multiple times per day by searching the schools and program in which I applied. I continuously log into my accounts to check if there is an update. Today on the forum, 3 people were accepted to one of the schools I applied at. I haven't heard anything. This is torture, anxiety, and an unhealthy obsession. Another obsession is school. Is anyone else obsessed? It's like an addiction. I feel as if life is more structured, interesting, and there is something to look forward to while being part of a program. I already completed a Masters 2 years ago. I felt depressed when it ended and finally applied for a doctorate in a different area. I feel the need to be in school. Help.
