    American Studies Fall 2019??

    Haha, Brown must've heard me! Aaaaand... rejection. Oh well, still looking forward to my trip to Northwestern Thursday. Good luck to @magnegresswrites getting off their waitlist now that other decisions seem to be out!

    Well, good luck to all you Harvard applicants regardless! I'll just be here... checking my watch... waiting for Brown.....

    Ouch, really? That means someone's lying to mess with people's emotions, or (maybe worse) getting false-hope punked...

    2019 Applications Thread

    I'm in the last leg of a two-year MA after also being out of school for a while. I wanted to go straight into a PhD, but only got into an MA program. Obviously there are pros and cons to each, but I'll say that doing an MA first let me shake off some of the rust and I'll be a much better PhD student for it. Also, especially if you're looking at humanistic comm programs, it will make you a MUCH more competitive applicant--so if there were places you wanted to go but didn't turn out this application cycle, you know, you might get em next time. Good luck with your decision making! Honestly it's way harder than I expected. I only got into one program last time so I just went there, but now that there are choices... Edited to add: I don't know your partner's field, but I lived in Wisconsin just south of Madison a few years back. I watched a lot of folks move up there and find jobs really quickly.

    Mine came just now too. Congrats to those who landed those spots! Anyone else hear from Brown? Feels like that's coming today/this week too...

    Congrats! Also, I think all of my communication with Northwestern to this point has been weekends or weekdays after 8pm (7pm in their timezone, but still!). It does make you worry about the rest of them coming in at odd hours...

    Congrats! The first one is the sweetest even if you end up elsewhere. Hope the next few are good news as well!

    Well, congrats to @ExileFromAFutureTime and the other mystery admit! I've been surprised at the teeny cohort sizes everywhere! I'm currently in a culture studies MA program, and my cohort (combined MA/PhD since we do coursework together) is 12, 9 of which are doctoral... 6 is so small, particularly considering Mich (and UT!) are much larger schools.

    Same, also just checked my application portal and no change.

    Got an email from UCSD not too long after this post! Looks like we applied to different programs there, though.

    2019 Applications Thread

    Thanks for your kind words! Not an hour later I got an acceptance from UCSD--today is really whiplash! I honestly can't believe it--I've never been further west than South Dakota and they're flying me out for an open house!

    Waitlisted at UT Austin yesterday and just now rejected from UW Madison (with an exceptionally kind personal email, but still)--what a rough week. Is anyone else here going to Northwestern's Comm interview visit the weekend after next? I was feeling good about it, but being rejected after an interview I thought went well has be a bit on edge.
