  1. This is something that I have wondered about as well. I entered my university with a lot of transfer credit and took 3 classes/quarter (as opposed to 4) for several quarters to avoid graduating in the fall. I was still admitted to two top-50 programs, though 🤷🏻‍♀️
  2. Thank you! I heard back about UCSD about 20 minutes after UCI.
  3. I'd say that my biggest pieces of advice, which have also been mentioned above, are: Apply to MA programs as well if you can. Or have some sort of plan B. Before I received acceptances I was very stressed because I didn't have any other plans. Get started early! I did this and it made the process much less overwhelming. Having a professor read over my SOP and answer my questions about grad school in general was such a great help. Definitely try to find a mentor. Reach out to POIs before you apply. It's nice to know if they are accepting grad students, and to see what th
  4. I just got my first acceptance, everyone! I was getting worried after 4 rejections in a row, but I'm happy to finally have some good news!!
  5. Ah well, I just got rejected from UCLA this morning, so it seems that I wasn’t waitlisted.
  6. I agree! It's nice to have the support of friends and family, but it may be even nicer to get support from your peers. Everyone has been so kind. I truly wish the best for us all.
  7. You might want to check out the City Guides section of the forum. Here's the one for DC.
  8. Glad to know I'm not the only one. Fingers crossed for us both!
  9. I know that this is something that's often said, but how often is this really the case? Two of my schools have already sent out offers (USC and UCLA), and UCLA has handed out some rejections. I haven't heard anything from either school. UCLA is my top choice so I am really hoping I'm on some sort of waitlist or something, but I'm also trying not to get my hopes up.
  10. Yes, this is how it was for Stanford as well.
  11. Yes! Hopefully we all get some good news.
  12. I didn’t have very high hopes since my POI said she might retire before I would finish my dissertation, but it’s still a bummer.
  13. I saw others on the results page not getting emails from Yale, but I think they might just be behind on sending them out. I just got one a couple of minutes ago.
  14. @ that lucky UCLA admit: Congrats! Was it an official notice?
