  1. That's so exciting -- congratulations on choosing a great program!
  2. After a few conversations with my mentors and friends who are PhD students, the biggest theme that I heard was "faculty match" as the most important aspect when choosing where to go. This mentoring relationship will last even once you enter the job market and as you are becoming more established in the field and come up for promotions, etc. Also just having to spend so much time working on data collection and analysis, writing papers, attending conferences, etc. that you should be somewhere where the faculty interest closely aligns with yours and there are good vibes. The next biggest thing I
  3. Congratulations on getting an offer from UIUC! 🎉🎊
  4. Nice! Two acceptances back-to-back at great schools. Congrats, again!
  5. Congratulations 🎉🎊 on your acceptance!
  6. Hey everyone, I am sending positive vibes all your way. I know that the waiting game is tough, but I am hopeful that in a few months we will all get some good news!
  7. Congratulations on this acceptance to Denver!!! This is such exciting news!
  8. The best advice that I could give you is: Everything will be fine, and it’s totally normal to be a bit fluxed after graduating from undergrad (congratulations!!!). A gap year is a good way to hone in on your focus and also take a breather from school; I would actually say take two years off to get some post-college experience, which can help differentiate you from other candidates.

I’ve seen where lots of alumni have been able to transition into policy, government, and nonprofit jobs from this program at SSA, though I no little about the clinical side of the school. A huge piece at SSA that I’ve heard is being generally geared toward social justice issues and making learning applicable in the broader Chicago community. Depending on your career goals, if pursuing the social admin route, SSA could be a great place. SSA offered
  10. Rooting for everyone to receive admission with solid funding; good luck!
  11. Congratulations on your acceptances!!! Fingers crossed for UW & BU, with good funding too. Amen!
  12. I am sorry to hear about this; I am sure that good news will come with the cycle!
  13. Hi everyone! I also did, in fact, receive a physical acceptance letter today from UChicago, and it was a very exciting feeling.
  14. I have not received a physical letter yet either; I’m wondering if it was a different program or something. I live in Chicago so if it was mailed, it would have arrive same day. So I’m wondering if they will mail everyone a letter. However, I did receive a nice greeting card from SSA.
  15. Congrats on being accepted, especially with solid scholarships! Very much might see you both in the fall at SSA.
