    Hi Green Mango, welcome! With you we have 7 applicants this cycle in this thread. Yay for the growth! I noticed someone else got an interview invite for Princeton. Anybody applied there?
  2. Fall 2018 Admission

    I know right? I check my email like a hundred times a day and nothing. But yes next week something should come up I hope.
  3. Fall 2018 Admission

    Any humanities applicants have heard anything yet?
  4. Requiring so many!

    I felt so bad about asking many from a single professor. One of them wrote at least 5 for me. They are busy people so, yeah... I'm sure they didn't mind writing them for me, but I was ashamed to steal some time from them.

    One of my statements of purpose was in retrospect very convoluted. Acquiring expertise in this area will allow me to become a scholar and educator who contributes to this important conversation, in an increasingly globalized world that needs more than ever to create bridges and have frank conversations about historical relations between nations. This could use so much editing.

    Well, more than likely nothing this week. Next week will be interesting though, a lot of results according to the survey start rolling out then.

    Wait, maybe I should ask them about this. The only thing is I feel so bad for asking my recommenders to write more letters. They would definitely do it, but you know. I'll think about this!

    Thank you. I think I'm not going to finish them though, I feel rude doing so, towards the department there and my recommenders who already wrote so many letters for me. WU stood out for me because they had a 6-year stipend. More than any other school I saw. Oh well

    I got emails from Penn State and Washington at St. Louis, the two schools where I started the app but never finished. I asked them about fee waivers but they didn't respond so I just never bothered to finish either app. It will be awkward to tell them I'm not applying. If anybody here applied to either, though, that must mean they are starting to review apps. I was specially confused at WU since I sent someone an email specifically about the fee waiver but they just told me to "follow the instructions on the screen." The instructions said to ask her, so I was super confused. Maybe not a good reason not to apply, but I just couldn't afford to pay application fees anymore. Those and the GRE are killers.
  10. What will you do if you get your first acceptance letter?

    Being totally honest--I'll share the news on social media and cry. Afterwards I'm gonna have a chat with myself in my head and wonder if this school is the right fit, if I should wait for the rest of the schools etc.

    I'm glad it went well! I was nervous before too but it was a nice interview.
  12. Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    My health is being weird lately. Nothing that warrants a hospital visit, but between panic attacks, stomach ache and now eye pain(? I suppose. My eyes feel like they are opened too wide unwillingly), this wait for a notification is upsetting.

    Oh that's good to know. Interviews seem like extra stress, but I doubt I'll have them for the two most selective schools I applied to, so eh... How often do you guys check your email daily? I think at least 20 for me lately ughhh

    UPenn's committee was quick lol. Congrats! I haven't heard anything from UMich yet (or anyone other than UPitt really. They still have 2 days this week!). I didn't know they had interviews. I'm actually kind of confused about interviews--do all programs have them? I was under the impression they were far less common for humanities than for STEM programs.

    Thank you!!
