    For those of you who have been accepted and committed to a program (or are pretty certain where they will) that are still looking at this thread, I have two questions:

    1) Where are you going to attend?

    2) Do you know how large your cohort will be?

    1) I will be attending Baylor University

    2) My cohort will have five people total

  2. I just committed to Baylor. I was also accepted to George Mason, but the lack of departmental funding convinced me to take Baylor's offer along with a great fit with my potential advisor.

    Anyone else going to Baylor?

  3. That's kinda what I did when I was rejected from every PhD program in my first cycle - I applied to funded MA programs, got in, did well here, and I have a few offers under my belt now. I think it is a viable option that can certainly benefit you if done correctly.

    I'm just curious if these are programs that say they guarantee funding for all admitted students (in normal times)? Or are they programs that don't guarantee funding per se, but do typically provide funding? 

    Baylor University's sociology program - my top choice - guarantees 5 years of funding to all phd students

    How many people here have a masters? It’s starting to frighten me about going straight to a PhD from undergrad...seems like a lot of people already have their masters 😞 

    I do have a masters, but my MA is in a completely different field (Religious Studies)

  7. Hey guys.

    I was recently (actually today) received an invitation to participate in an interview for one of the programs I applied to. It is suppose to be a 30 minute interview and "an essential part of the admissions process." I honestly do not know what I should do or how to prepare for the interview, as this is my first time EVER receiving such an offer.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

    Has anyone heard from CUNY? They were supposed to send out letters early this week and they still haven't...

    I think schools in general are just too booked with all the things pouring on them. WashU was supposed to send out the results LAST WEEK (I know its gonna be a rejection for me) according to the graduate coordinator but still haven't heard anything from the.

    Anyone else rejected from GMUs PhD Sociology Program but accepted into their Masters Program?

    Also, I didn’t even apply to the Masters program

    Not me, but GMU historically has accepted some applicants who applied for PhD program into their Masters program.

    I re-read both the email and official letter, but I couldn't find any information regarding how many or if all acceptances are sent out. I'm sorry I don't have any helpful information for you 😢

    It's okay! Thank you! Now I will cry myself to sleep!

    Thank you! I got into UAlbany! I received an email from the graduate director this morning. 

    Words! Damn that is one of my top choices! Congratulations again! Do you happen to know if they sent out all the acceptances?

    Got my first acceptance letter today! I feel like I can finally sleep in peace. But I am anticipating 5 rejections based on the acceptance updates I saw on here. I just want them to lmk already.

    Congrats! Where did you get in?

    Does anyone know if UCLA is done sending out acceptances? Seems like they have extended offers in several waves so far. 

    Someone in this post said that he/she got accepted and his/her application was among the last batch of applications, so I assume that UCLA is done sending out acceptances. I am expecting a rejection letter in mid-February because the graduate director said that they are sending results in rolling.

    Has anyone heard back from George Mason?

    I received an email from George Mason's CHSS Graduate Admissions saying that they "do not have a timeline for the reviews," and we should continue to monitor our application portal for updates including decision.

    As a way to distract: Are you doing anything fun/relaxing this weekend? I'm trying out this viral feta pasta recipe I saw that looks amazing and possibly breaking out my watercolor paints.

    I am working on yet another custom keyboard - this is the THIRD one since I submitted my applications back in November - which is about to be completed this weekend

  16. Looks like three out of four rejections for me will come next week. Well, it has been a nice journey waiting for you guys UCLA, WashU, and CUNY. Gotta keep my fingers crossed for four remaining apps
