    Two options, and is it too early to choose?

    It's an MA program! The school only offers a terminal MA program, which is likely why I was able to get full funding.
  2. Hi everyone! I'm weighing two options right now and, judging by the results page and the lack of funding for two of the other masters programs I'm applying to, I feel like these will be my best two options. I'm leaning towards one school, which has class registration in mid-March and has asked me to notify them of their decisions as soon as possible. A: My current undergrad institution, where I got into the MA to PhD program. This is a more rigid program (I was accepted for American but want to do European history), but I know the faculty and there are a ton of really great scholars. They have graduate housing and I know that travel funding exists. Usually funded, but I have yet to hear about funding and am unsure if I can get into the European history program instead. I can do a thesis. B: Program I'm leaning towards. Fully funded, flexible program, ability to do a thesis and there's an option to do a teaching internship in which I can create and teach a class. I can take more language courses and there's travel funding available. There is no graduate housing. I have an interest in public history, and this program has a lot of public history classes and internships available. I also have found this program's previous courses, which all sound fascinating, and the courses I can take for my intended concentration would give me a lot of freedom to explore that I like/don't like. I know it may be too early, but this is such a big decision.

    It definitely is, especially considering I haven't heard anything concrete from SLU about funding (and still haven't heard if I could specialize in European and not American history)! Thanks, @fordlandia!

    Great news! I just got the notification that I received a full tuition scholarship from Villanova!

    I applied to Harvard for an American history PhD. AFAIK, all of the acceptances have already gone out.

    Funding is definitely my priority! I'm hoping that I'll have to choose between two funded programs, so I'm kind of biding my time until Villanova gets back to me.
  10. When I got my second acceptance, I was in the car and saw Hamilton right after!

    I know that SLU funds Masters programs, though I'm not sure about the stipend. I could do the MA at my current school and a PhD somewhere else with ease (a lot of students have done so previously, with a good maintained relationship), so I'm not too incredibly worried about that. I'm not sure about funding yet for Villanova, but I should find out within the next week or so.

    Got my first waitlist from Loyola Chicago. Honestly, not sure if I would accept if I was being accepted, given the fact that they're not a ranked program and they're primarily an American history school.

    I haven't heard yet, but the program admin said to reach out if I haven't heard by the 26th (and the program director said I should find out by the end of the month)! I'm honestly not sure where I'm leaning at the moment. They're both great programs.
