  1. I'm going a little outta my mind waiting to hear from UCSD and/or UC Irvine!
  2. Glad to see this Thread! I applied last year to about 6 schools, and didn't get in. I've narrowed the list to 2 and am giving a second shot. UCSD and UCI. Great to meet you all! @deirdrenyc I can speak to the MFA directing program at DePaul if thats one you are looking at. I loved my time there!!
  3. I applied to Stanford but haven’t heard. I sorta assumed that I won’t hear from them as others on here have already had interviews. The same is true for Berkeley. I haven’t heard, but assumed that I won’t as others have already been accepted. The only official answer I have received is from Northwestern. I did meet with all the schools I applied to before applying. I don’t know how that affects hearing from them though. Guess we’ll all just have to slowly go mad.... I mean wait. Wait patiently.
  4. My Northwestern rejection was from the PS Department. I looked on some of the other forums for Berkeley info. Are we sure they have already done interviews?
  5. I also received a rejection from Northwestern. Still holding out for my top schools though. Good luck all!
  6. Just curious if anyone here has heard from their programs. Any interviews or acceptances yet?
  7. Hi! Anyone hear back from a theatre or performance studies program? My last app closed on Jan 9th. I was really thinking I'd have heard this week.
  8. I'm only applying to PhD programs, or those who get MA on their way to PhD's. I have my MFA in Directing, so I don't need a duplicate MA. Northwestern is also on my list, but I think UCSD and Columbia are my two top choices. For what its worth, I did end up visiting the schools that I am applying to and I am really glad I did. I got a much better sense of the program, and was able to make tweaks to my SOP because of it. I also feel it helped to put a face with a name/application, although maybe thats just in my head. I'm trying to prepare a list of questions for any interviews I might get. What are the questions you all are going to ask? Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
  9. I am in a very similar situation. I am applying for admission Fall 2018, am currently in the workforce, and trying to balance the cost of (possibly multiple) college tours with the potential benefit. Did you decide to visit the school you were applying to? I was planning to visit my top choice, but was wondering if I should visit one or two others given that I know very little about those schools beyond the website and even less about the cities. What program/school are you applying to?
  10. Are you all planning to visit alll of the schools or maybe your top choices prior to applying? I'm trying to balance funds with the need for information (as well as my own excitement ). Just wondering if you think that a site visit has much effect on admissions. My sense is that any benefit would be very little, but Who knows.
  11. Its great to see you on here willing to talk with those of use looking to apply. I am considering Tufts in addition to other schools, and I'm wondering about visiting the school before applying, and will it matter a great deal to meet potential faculty advisors prior to applying.
  12. I feel like the larger question is the type of work you are looking to do, and/or the type of training you are looking for. I got my MFA in Directing in Chicago, so my experience is mostly from that point of view, But the style of work and training are very different between these two cities on the whole. yes of course there are programs which vary within each city..... but overall, there is a pedagogical difference at play.
  13. I didn't see any forums for performance studies PhD programs beginning in Fall 2018.... probably because I'm the only one overly excited to be posting this early! I'm applying to quite a few schools. Columbia and Northwestern are my top picks. Just hoping to find a few other friends who might want to drive themselves nuts with me on this forum for the next twelve months! Ha! I'd love to know where else you are all applying.
  14. How do you like the program at Northwestern. Its a top choice of mine. I noticed that there is a PhD in Theatre/Drama and one in performance studies. I'm trying to figure out which I best fit, or which best fits me. Thoughts on the difference between them? I love Chicago! I got my MFA from The Theatre School at DePaul, so it already feels like I'd be going back home.
