    It makes me so mad that schools take so long to send their results, especially rejections. I find it so inconsiderate that once rejected it's like schools don't even feel like people are important or that they deserve to know sooner rather than later. If they know who they are admitting and/or placing on the waitlist just let the others know, it really doesn't take long to write a generic rejection later. I have yet to officially hear from two schools, and even though I am 90% sure that I am going to be rejected (people have already posted acceptances/waitlists/interviews on the results page and I have not received anything), I just want to receive official confirmation and finish with this hellish application period. It's just so frustrating.

    @adamanthro I do have another option but I really like CUNY and I got my hopes up when I got the interview email 😕 Also I know that at least I have one choice but applying to 9 schools and only getting one acceptance is kind of brutal.

    Nothing on my portal or email (including spam). Making people wait for their rejection is simply rude. 😭

    @adamanthro did you get an email or did it show up in the portal?? I guess I got rejected. yikes. Has anyone else received anything?

    @spoitier Congratulations!! I do not know anything about CU Denver but I would assume that because they set March 29 as a deadline to respond that they're not giving you any funding? From my experience Anthropology programs tend to respect the "if there is funding involved you should not force people to accept before April 15th" thing (https://cgsnet.org/april-15-resolution),, so if they're asking for a response before then, there's probably no funding (this is my reasoning I could be wrong). I would honestly just email and ask; it never hurts. Good luck

    I apologize for being so insistent about this but did anyone apply to CU Boulder and receive a decision already or knows someone who applied and received some sort of decision (preferably acceptance or wait list)? I haven't heard anything yet and I have emailed everyone I could possibly email and have not gotten a direct response. Please, I really like this school and I really want them to stop messing with my feelings. 😭

    Seriously though, thanks for the information!

    I am not sure the waitlist for cultural is real because it honestly doesn't make sense that someone got a waitlist notification before someone else in the same subdiscipline got their acceptance. It does seem though that acceptances usally come out a month before they upload rejections so I do agree they if we haven't heard from NYU we're probably rejected.

    Wow, would you happen to know how many people do they interview then if it’s rolling? Probably more than the 13 spots they offer. Their process is so weird. Honestly, I wasn’t even expecting to reach the interview stage and CUNY is probably my top choice so the wait is killing me. 😩

    @adamanthro Oh damn, I hate the really vague "early, mid, late" shit. JUST TELL US ALREADY! They have all the power, they could at least just let us know when they are going to release their decisions. Hopefully they'll let us know by the beginning of next week. Thanks for the information!

    Does anyone know how CUNY interviews work? Like does getting an interview mean that you will either get accepted or placed on the waitlist or is it still possible to be rejected? I kind of tried asking but I was too nervous to do so in a coherent manner (also my general awkwardness probably didn't help). Was anyone able to figure out the exact date decisions will come out? Also is it just me or are decisions in general kind of behind schedule? I kind of expected to have most of my decisions by the end of February but I still haven't heard from many schools 😕 .

    Cleaning Up the Results Board

    @TGCA Thank you very much for your response and for the information. I was thinking that it would be a good idea to have the suicide prevention information somewhere visible and maybe provide resources for internationals too as this page is not only accessed by people in the US and Canada. I really appreciate everything that you are doing. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do as a user to help; I'm sure other users would be also interested in helping out.
  14. From my understanding, if there is funding involved your POI cannot urge you to make a decision before April 15th. If anything you should tell them that they are not allowed to make you decide before April 15th. I'm not sure about how the thing works but here's a link to the resolution if you want to check it out: https://cgsnet.org/april-15-resolution

    I am extremely frustrated and a part of me feels that I am partly to blame. I feel like I've been jerked around by one of my top choices. Based on the previous years' results they should have already uploaded decisions and a couple of decisions have in fact been posted. I have not received any decision, I have called, I emailed my POI and they told me that they could not give me any information but that I would hear from the admissions committee soon (this was on Friday). I emailed the department for information today and they said that I should contact my POI. ¿ENTONCES QUE? Who is going to give me answers??? Writing this down made me realize that it has only been a week since I called so it might still be that "soon" time frame but it has felt like it's been so long. I'm trying to be patient but I can't deal with the uncertainty. I'm like 90% sure that I'll end up on the waitlist and I'll probably not go because I have already been accepted at another school that I like just as much, so I'm also annoyed at myself for being so anxious about all of this. If anything, getting accepted would mean trying to decide between two schools I really like and spending money on a visit to that school and since I am an international student that becomes a bit expensive even if they cover most of the travel costs. So, why do I care so much? Btw, @Adelaide9216 (I saw your post when I was writing this so I thought I might as well include it here) this might sound kind of creepy but based on what I've see you have posted I think you are a QUEEN. I think that your university probably asked you to do the workshop not to "teach" but maybe just share your experiences speaking in public. You probably do it very well, so just you know share what you do, how you make yourself feel comfortable or how you prepare yourself when you have to do a presentation for instance and I am sure you will rock it!
