  1. Of course! I was accepted straight out of undergrad to multiple programs and at every visit I went to there were others invited who also were either straight out of undergrad, or only had a bachelor's. I am social science focused, but another in my cohort has only a BA and is more humanities focused. I think the most important factor on top of grades and gre is your research experience and your research interest fit. Choose carefully. Good luck!
  2. I got in straight out of undergrad, however I left college to work in the entertainment industry and didn’t go back to get my two bachelor’s degrees in new majors for twenty years!
  3. The financial information including the details of all five years of funding for all my offers was included in my offer letters. I haven’t received any more info since accepting my offer, but it was made clear to me what it would be when I was offered admission. I would definitely contact them again. Do you mean you know you are funded, but you’re just not sure how it’s broken down, or that you don’t know if you’re receiving funding at all?
  4. That’s very strange. This hasn’t happened to me. If it’s a program you’re still interested in, I might send them an email just to make sure your rejection email wasn’t the mistake. Otherwise I’d let it go.
  5. I would probably give it until Monday. Let them have the week to sort out things. I know it feels like it's been forever, but the deadline for funded offers was only 4 days ago, and if they are going to make new offers, they still might have to go through the same paperwork and vetting process with the graduate school and everything before they send out anything to waitlist people. They would've only started that process on Tuesday, once the deadline passed and they were sure about who had accepted what. Then I would simply say that I would like to know the status of my application, or something like that. Keep it simple. Just ask if you are still on the waitlist, or if the cohort has been filled. Good luck!
  6. Oh okay, master's programs have different timelines. You are probably still in the running, especially if you haven't seen anyone post that they've been admitted. Definitely contact them and ask though. Good luck!
  7. That is very strange. Have you checked all of your portals and your spam folder? Sometimes you don’t get notified of a portal change. It’s possible you are waitlists for one or two, but I would contact the departments and fine out no have only one school I haven’t heard from but that is the way they work. I heard from everyone else by mid February. People had to commit by yesterday, so if you are on a waitlist you should hear soon.
  8. I was told at the open house for the program I accepted that fees are about $150. $1000 plus is insane!
  9. No. I got all my official paperwork within a week of my offers.
  10. If you pay $30k plus living expenses and then go into a phd program you have basically spent money on nothing becauseost programs still require you to follow their curriculum. You will be in debt and like montcg said there’s no guarantee you’ll get into a better program next year. A fully funded PhD, is a really great opportunity. I can’t speak to your job prosy, but have you looked at the program’s placement? If you want to go into academia, I would pick the PhD. Especially if you’re not going to get the same treatment as the PhD students at Columbia.
  11. Full tuition and a stipend seems like a no brainer to me, especially if you’re looking at $80k+ in loans at GT. To me, it’s just not worth the debt when you can get paid to get a degree from another good school.
  12. In addition to what GDW said, you might identify some POIs or programs you’re interested in and email them or the Grad Director and explain your situation and ask if you’re competitive.
  13. Could you get a master’s and do research as part of the program and then go on to a PhD or PsyD program? Would the military pay for you to go to two different schools/get two degrees? I don’t know how difficult to get into master’s programs without research experience, but I think you have circumstances that are worth considering by an admissions committee. If that’s an option that you can do, you might look into master’s programs. Hopefully someone with more knowledge about PsyD programs will speak up.
  14. How much is your stipend at UW? Full funding is huge, but Seattle is significantly more expensive than Bloomington, I would assume. So I would also look at what your quality of life would be like in each place, based on what you’ll have to spend. Is there potential to get more funding at IU for your last two years?
