  1. Thanks! I'm really excited and happy about Brown! It took me 2 years to get admitted to a PhD, but the wait and anxiety was worth it! Congrats on the MA offer!! Don't let the rejections to the other programs discourage you or make you feel not-qualified; our discipline is very competitive and, sometimes, it all goes down to your interests aligning with the faculty's... You got through the admissions process, and you got in a quality program! (if I'm not wrong, Vinson is there!). I'm sure that with the MA, your chances to get a PhD offer will greatly increase in a future application cycle!
  2. @Edminzodo do you have any news from Oxford? Did you apply to any other MA or PhD? Good luck!
  3. @Neferherw how's the admissions cycle going so far? Any luck? From the programs you mentioned, I know at least UCLA has sent results (I was rejected...) All the best!
  4. I wish this whole story was merely a joke... University Of California, Berkeley Film & Media, PhD (F19) Rejected via E-mail on 8 Mar 2019 A 13 Mar 2019 Dear Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, if either of you could take me in and do your cute little money bribes to get me accepted, I promise to not be a bratty YouTuber and just pay attention to my work. Idk how else to be one of three accepted students!
  5. Wow! congrats on those 6 acceptances! What's your concentration? My 2 cents: if your dilemma is between Harvard and NYU and you're not planning on a PhD afterwards, I would go with the program that better aligns with your research interests. Have a look at the courses each MA offers and decide which are more attractive to you. If, after the MA, you decide you want to go for the PhD, having taken the courses you're really passionate about will play in your favor: you'll have things more clear and that will reflect on your SoP.
  6. A full tuition waver MA from Harvard? That's awesome! Put that on your CV and, although it won't guarantee a PhD acceptance, it will definitely make the committees read your application carefully! Yeah! I'm super excited about Brown! I had applied to several scholarships (in Europe) in the past 2 years and they all had a negative result, so a fully-funded acceptance, and to Brown!, has definitely paid off all the hard-work and all the waiting! Regarding my qualifications: I scored 119 on the TOEFL, 162V/164Q/4.5AWA on the GRE, and I have an MA in Egyptology (GPA 9.4/10) from Barcelo
  7. Welcome to the thread! Sorry to hear about your rejection. I just don't get why rejections aren't sent at the same time as acceptances or interview invites... I mean, they MUST know how anxious applicants are, right!? Did you apply to other schools? How's the application cycle going so far?
  8. Congrats!! Seems you have amazing programs to choose from!! Any word of funding from Harvard? From my side, I just received the formal offer from Brown! Fully funded PhD!! I still haven't received answers from JHU or UCLA, but I already accepted, as this was my top choice!
  9. That's great!! Looks like, whatever happens, you'll be attending graduate school this fall! Good luck!
  10. Ouch! Johns Hopkins University English, PhD (F19) Rejected via E-mail on 26 Feb 2019 A 26 Feb 2019 Wow! Second rejection from them THIS WEEK! I must have really made an impression!
  11. That's awesome! Congratulations! I hope you get the funding!! For Columbia and Arizona, have you applied to MA or PhD?
  12. Thanks!! I also think that it's more common to go directly from undergrad to PhD in the STEMs than it is in the Humanities because there is much more offer and funding. When it come to Egyptology, for example, there are only about 10 graduate programs in the US, and most of them are from very competitive universities. I imagine this is also the case for the rest of NELC/MES disciplines... It is perfectly possible to get accepted straight from undergrad, but someone who does an MA would have much more chances, also because after an MA, they would normally have a better idea of which r
