    FutureEdPHD got a reaction from TheHoff in UCSB vs ColoState (changing after the 15th)   
    After the 15th deadline, you’re going to have to get a written release from CSU since they offered you a funding package. I’d assume that they’d be willing to do so since nobody wants to have someone in their program who wants to go elsewhere but sometimes departments/grad schools can be a little petty.
    Advisor fit is huge in this process since you’ll be working closely with them for the next few years so I’d definitely take that into consideration. Ranking can also matter too but it’s not everything. You have to look at which program will best set you up for the future that you want. 
    Good luck making a decision!

    ha this was me! The rejections have been expected but sad nonetheless. Netflix and Hulu have been lifesavers every time I get a rejection

    FutureEdPHD got a reaction from PsychApplicant2019 in This application season I learned........   
    I learned just how subjective this process really is and to not beat myself up over rejections. There's usually no way to tell why a school/department/POI didn't choose you and it's not necessarily a reflection on you as a person. Sometimes it's because of funding or maybe the POI is doing a sabbatical next year. It could literally be anything. A former professor used to have us say this before every speech/presentation: "No matter what happens, I will still lead a full and happy life." That's what's getting me through this weird and uncertain season.

    FutureEdPHD got a reaction from em2164 in Temple University   
    Hi @em2164I don’t know if this could work for you, but I’m taking an early morning flight up there and catching a late night flight back home that same day. It seems a little crazy but I know I can’t make this decision without seeing everything in person. The flights aren’t nearly as expensive as I’d thought so hopefully something like that could work for you too!

    Hi everyone! I didn't see a thread for Temple University for this admissions cycle so I started this one. Anyone else going to the admitted students visit in March? I'm in the Urban Education concentration.

    FutureEdPHD reacted to kitcassidance in What were you doing when you received your acceptance?   
    I was at work, on the phone with a participant, when my Inbox changed from "Inbox" to "(1) Inbox."  I opened it -- because I can multitask, alright? That's why you hired me, remember, *boss*?  I was still actively engaging in this phone conversation -- and saw an e-mail saying "Your Admission Decision is Available."  My heart dropped.  I thought for sure this meant rejection.  Even the place I am currently waitlisted gave me a courtesy telephone call.  Decision via portal clearly meant rejection.  I immediately closed my inbox, and tried to keep from crying while I spoke to my participant for another thirty-four agonizing minutes.  When she hung up, I took a deep breath, let myself cry a little, and opened the portal.  Skimmed for words, shortish letter, skimmed some more -- "CONGRATULATIONS!"  Cried some more, happy tears this time.  As it was already 4:30, I checked in with my coworker, cried even more, hugged, and we each clocked out a few minutes early to celebrate with mimosas (hold the OJ. I guess that's just called champagne everywhere else in the country).

    FutureEdPHD got a reaction from mayu101 in Post here to get your worries off your chest   
    I absolutely needed to see that just now. This last week has been tough with a few of my programs sending out notifications for interviews and some acceptances. The admissions process just seems so secretive, which is frustrating when I'm trying to plan out my life. I've always been a planner, so this is really throwing me off BUT I'm hoping that these next few weeks will bring some clarity. You're absolutely right that it's not over til it's over!

    Heard back from University of Maryland and I got in! The waiting game for the other 5 schools is stressing me out some, but hopefully some of the other programs will post decisions sooner rather than later. Hoping for good news for everyone here!!
