    SPED PhD Apps Fall 2019

    Thanks! Now I will be refreshing my email all day tomorrow! Luckily I will be visiting another school on Monday so if I don't hear tomorrow I'll have something to distract me this weekend into Monday.

    I'm so sorry! Here is the information I was given about the student visit day (https://education.utexas.edu/campus-visit-day) if that helps. I know the wait is hard and I'm dying to hear about funding. I know they can't guarantee it, but I do think that they fund the majority of their grad students. With how competitive the field is, they wouldn't get the candidates they want without funding. I would hold off until you get the funding letter. I've also heard that once you are on a project you are likely to stay on it until it ends or you choose to move on.

    I've been accepted to UT Austin for a PhD. They said they would be sending out funding letters in early March. Are you going to the accepted student's day on Monday? My guess is that they will go into funding more then. My advisor was able to give me some information, but no specific numbers yet. It may depend on your program though.

    I'm with you! That's why I called, I was like I just want to know either way so I can make a decision about where I will be next year.

    Lol! I just called Al myself and he said that all decisions (yay or nay) should be out by the end of the week. At this point I just want to know either way. I assume if some people have found out, they are sending out the rejections this week, but who knows...

    I know! I'm visiting other schools next week and Vandy is the only school I'm waiting to hear from. After my visits I would really like to make a decision.

    Anyone hear anything? I haven't which solidifies my thinking that I didn't get in.

    If it's the same as the PHD portal it will go from "Submitted" to the decision. There was no way to see when it was under review.

    I agree that that to get in you need to interview. I received my rejection yesterday, so if you haven't checked the portal, I would do so.

    I'll be heading to Minnesota in a few weeks! I'm super excited as it was my top choice program.

    well considering masters students are getting acceptances (though not sure from the SPED department) I'm going to accept that I didn't make it. Oh well, moving on to focus on the two other programs that I was accepted to.

    I got my masters at Vandy so I knew a few professors. My previous advisor wrote me a letter of rec and I spoke with another professor generally about where to apply and what I should be looking for in a program as well as in an advisor. In addition, my writing sample was a paper from one of my classes at Vandy. So I didn't reach out directly to talk about working with a specific person, but I did have contact with the department. They don't have a professor doing the exact research that I want to do which makes me nervous about my chances of being accepted, but I love the department and the culture at Vandy so I wanted to apply despite the not exact fit in research.

    Hahaha no problem! I also agree that it's nice to find people going through the same thing. It has helped relieve my stress! I had a friend call and ask about when decisions are coming out and they said between now and mid-February. Professors will reach out themselves first and that should start happening late this week or early next week, but could continue until mid-Feb depending on the professor.

    Yeah. I've kinda accepted that I'm not in, but who knows until that official rejection letter arrives. Was it Al Brady that you met with? I've thought about emailing him to check in...

    I applied to Vanderbilt, University of Minnesota, UT Austin, and Harvard. I'm in with funding at Minnesota and Austin, didn't get an interview at Harvard and also haven't heard from Vandy. The waiting game is hard! I thought Vandy would have emailed either way last week, but maybe it'll be this week? It seems like admission in previous years came in end of Jan and rejection came in start of Feb. No one has posted on the results page yet though, so I'm holding out hope. Why did you choose only Vandy? Did you reach out to any professors?
