  1. Just got accepted to Chico State! I'm ecstatic but confused. I got into UCF fully funded with a stipend and a fellowship. I know the funding opportunities aren't nearly as good at Chico. But it's Chico, my top choice. Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!

    Tampa, FL

    I have been at USF for almost four years as an undergrad. Many of the apartments surrounding campus are filled with undergraduate students. This means that many are rent per room, furnished, with wifi/cable/utilities included. There are a few places that have more graduate students/families near campus. I'm currently in Lakeview Oaks and I haven't had any problems. It's five minutes from campus, it isn't rent per room, and its gated. Tampa Palms is also a nice area northeast of campus about 15-20 minutes away. It's more of a suburb/family area. Two of my favorite food/drink places near campus are Kaleisia Tea Lounge and Mr. Dunderbak's Biergarten. I really love Tampa and I am sad to be leaving soon (moving to Orlando for grad school).
  3. They only have a MA for anthropology though (unless you just mean PhD students at Chico in general)?
  4. I just got an email from Chico asking for an interview next week. I'm excited, but I've also heard that they don't do much funding. Does anyone else know much about Chico's funding?
  5. @CgnNrsThis is super helpful. Thank you! I'm planning to visit Orlando next week and I will make sure to check those areas out. I'm really interested in Winter Park and Lake Baldwin, but I also want to check out Waterford Lakes since it's closer to campus.
  6. I'm a little annoyed because I received a rejection email from UTK and in the email it said I would be contacted by the anthropology department as well. But my application still says in review. It has been almost a whole week since I got the email.
  7. I have decided to accept an offer from the University of Central Florida to their MA in Anthropology. I currently live in Tampa and have been in Florida for most of my life. However, I am not very familiar with the Orlando area. I'm looking for any advice on the best places to live, apartment recommendations, etc. Being close to campus would be convenient, but I also don't want to be surrounded by partying undergraduates. Are there areas near campus that have more graduate students/families? If I were to move farther from campus, such as closer to downtown or Winter Park, what is the drive/traffic like?
  8. It was an email. I got accepted to UCF fully funded with a TA stipend and a fellowship. I'm from Florida and my family is here, so it's a really good option. I just really loved UTK when I visited.
  9. Just got rejected from UTK. Pretty bummed... thought I might have had it... oh well...
  10. @AnthroChick21 @phyanth Glad I've got you guys to share my suffering with over UTK. I actually have a 9 hour shift this evening to provide a distraction. This is the week, it's gotta be!
  11. You're awesome! Let us know what you find out.
  12. It just seems like with all the applicants they get that someone would have posted that they got accepted into the biological program. The acceptances so far (that were posted) were for archaeology.
  13. Ha! I've been having stress dreams as well. Usually they involve getting rejected (way less creative than yours).
  14. Any one else hoping this will be the day (or at least week) for UT Knoxville to send out decisions for biological applicants? I've convinced myself that if I believe with all my heart it will happen today
