  1. Came across this that seemed to be relevant to the conversation we're having here https://culanth.org/fieldsights/1321-academic-precarity-in-american-anthropology-a-forum

    HKS 2018

    hi @Jigsaw_Saran, just curious why Harris is your first choice over SIPA?

    HKS vs. WWS

    If the financial situation is actually comparable - Harvard. Speaking as an international student from a developing country, the Harvard brand name carries more weight here than any other university.

    @Stumble, you can follow HKS on Twitter here https://twitter.com/hksadmissions. I'm sure they'll post as soon as decisions are sent.

    HKS 2018

    Hi @Stumble. Nice to see you're still active on this platform. WWS has sent out informal congratulatory acceptances. So those not contacted thus far should assume a rejection. Nobody has heard from HKS yet, but release of results seems imminent.
  9. Berkeley, definitely. MIT's whole program is devoted to science studies. Princeton and Harvard for med anthro.

    Funding Packages

    Not sure who has the authority to do it - but this thread should be pinned! This information is vital for future applicants.
  11. Guys, I applied for early action and was waitlisted. They said my application would be reconsidered with the first-round applicants. But my status on the portal hasn't changed - no acceptance, no rejection, not even a renewed waitlist.
  12. Congrats!!!! Were you called? Or through e-mail?
  13. Check the portal. I found my rejection letter waiting for me there.
  14. I really do not think it is wise to incur debts for graduate study, especially in a discipline like ours which isn't particularly marketable (read: there are very, very few jobs).
  15. Unlikely you'll receive a helpful response, but no harm giving it a shot.
