    PhD Applications Fall '18 Season

    I received the link to the rejection notice on the Georgetown portal in the morning (3/20) and then the email came around 5 pm that evening.

    My rejection was posted this morning, too. No email.

    For those waiting to hear from Georgetown's Theological and Religious Studies Program: I emailed the Director of Grad Studies and he replied yesterday, saying that they hope to finalize decisions this week. I'm trying to not read too much into that either way.

    I've not heard anything yet. Based on the results page it looks like some years they haven't announced until March 16, while last year I received a wait list email from Georgetown on February 16.

    I did my MDiv at a small seminary within my denomination and after two failed attempts to get into a good PhD program completed a ThM at a different, larger seminary in a different, larger denomination. My stats are good, I've held a number of leadership positions, and padded my CV with publications. So far the only acceptances I've received are non-funded in a program at a state school that isn't known for religious studies. I think a large part of my struggle has to do with the perceived quality of these seminaries.

    Last year Georgetown sent out acceptance/wait list letters for the Theology and Religious Studies program on February 16. Traditionally they were sent out the last week of February or first week of March. There is a new chair of grad studies this year, which may also affect the timing. I'm anxiously awaiting to hear from them again this year, too.
