    Accepted to PhD Classics at St. Andrews! Still waiting on results for Wolfson scholarship/general funding there, and Ertegun scholarship/Clarendon fund at Oxford. Congrats to Princeton and Harvard admits!!

    Hi Anthropology folks! I've been lurking here for a bit and have been most active in the Classics thread, as I'm applying mostly to classical archaeology programs. Are there many other archaeologists here? Thought I'd share my results so far if anyone is interested: Accepted: Oxford (DPhil Classical Archaeology; School of Archaeology) Interviews: Brown--invited to their visit weekend (PhD Archaeology and the Ancient World; Joukowsky Institute) Rejected: Cornell--informal rejection from POI (PhD Classics with concentration in Classical Archaeology) Unknown: Penn (PhD Art and Archaeology of the Ancient World), St. Andrews (PhD Classics)

    Accepted to DPhil in Classical Archaeology at Oxford! I don't know if any of you applied to that program, since it's in the School of Archaeology and not purely Classics, but thought you'd want to know. No word on funding or any of the scholarships I applied for yet.

    LOL same when I got my visit weekend invite I actually delayed responding for a couple hours in case they sent me an "oops wrong person" email!

    I'm also waiting to hear back from Penn. I applied for the Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World (AAMW) PhD program. At this point I'm definitely expecting a rejection as the application was due in mid-December and I've not heard a word from anybody there. I got an email yesterday from the department chair at Joukowsky inviting me to the prospective students' weekend! Definitely a very happy surprise. I didn't have any prior contact with POIs, no interviews, anything. It's not until March, so I guess I can relax a little bit until then. St. Andrews and Oxford PhD programs also will not notify until March regarding funding, FYI.

    Sent you a DM with the POI's name. I've applied to four other programs, none of which I am optimistic about lol. Has anybody heard anything about Brown/Joukowsky Institute?

    Well, heard back from Cornell--I got rejected. ? I got a personal email from a POI I had corresponded and interviewed with. The reason is my lack of adequate language training. I wasn't a Classics major as an undergrad, so didn't take any of the ancient languages then. I'm only now taking ancient Greek because I'm working at a college that lets me take a class for free every semester; I also took an online course in French for reading and translation. I'm just frustrated because I feel like I have so many other strengths, but this stupid language thing is going to haunt me for a long time. Sigh. Not to sound like I'm digging on philologists--truly not my intention.

    Hi Classics friends! I'm applying to Classics programs with an emphasis in archaeology. So far I've had a couple of informal interviews with POIs at Cornell, who told me that they expect to make offers by the end of the month. This wait is killing me!!
