  1. Hi! This is an Anthropology forum so I think you might this Biology forum could be more helpful: As an international student I do understand your frustration, but don't worry about timing in terms of your visa; you could probably receive your I-20 by May and still have enough time to get your student visa. Best of luck and I hope everything goes well!
  2. I'm joining for Fall 2019 too! I'm doing a PhD in Anthropology
  3. Has anyone else not heard from CUNY? I'm sure I have been rejected but nothing has shown up in the application portal and I haven't received any emails. So rude. 😠
  4. I'm in Anthropology so I don't know if things in STEM are the same, but I was told that you should never pay for a PhD. First of all, it is 6 years and taking out loans to pay all that is just ridiculous. I might agree with the rest of the people above if you absolutely love the school and it is a perfect fit but that does not seem to be the case, and also it's just too much money. It just doesn't sound like a good idea. For me securing funding (and good funding if you have the chance) should be a top priority.
  5. I haven't even received a decision yet πŸ˜• I called on Friday to see what was up and they told me that not all decisions/acceptances have come out and they don't really know when they'll send the rest of the decisions out. Based on that I would assume that accepting people off the waitlist is not a priority for the right now? I don't know. I wish I could get and give you a straight answer.
  6. 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 a
  7. @adamanthro I do have another option but I really like CUNY and I got my hopes up when I got the interview email πŸ˜• Also I know that at least I have one choice but applying to 9 schools and only getting one acceptance is kind of brutal.
  8. Nothing on my portal or email (including spam). Making people wait for their rejection is simply rude. 😭
  9. @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?
  10. @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
  11. 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. 😭
  12. Seriously though, thanks for the information!
  13. 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.
  14. 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. 😩
  15. @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!
