    I feel like a fool getting all rejections and waiting for Yale decisions.

    Interviews/Acceptances/Rejections Fall 2019

    I come here to read about the progress of applications, information of fundings, how prospective students and admits decide colleges, how rejected students cope and apply again. In a way I come here with an assumption that this is not facebook or twitter but a forum for emerging social scientists to exchange information and engage in a dialogue. Its disheartening to see quarrels and fights. I am sure both of you have different views on the issue and all the right to express yourself. But for the sake of others and myself as well it would be my sincere request to use personal messages for such an exchange. Lets us not use the affordance of anonymity in employing vulgarity and personal comments.

    No acceptances so far..

    Hi, I had only applied to two colleges for this fall , both of which were rejections, and one in Political Science , whose decisions are not yet out. I wanted to know how I can improve my profile for making successful PhD applications later. My GRE's are bad 150,150, 3.5, TOEFL 100, IELTS 7 Undergrad was magna cum laude, Masters with upper merit from LSE, research intership with scholarship at Germany two international conference presentations, 3 years of work experience as student liaison , content writer for UN and beahviour auditing for IEMA, 1 publication. I am really passionate about remaining in academics despite the ups and downs. I feel this is my calling. So any , no matter how critical, feddbacks, suggestions and recommendaions would really be highly appreciated.

    Quite a lot going on about Boston acceptances on the results page lol! I think Boston spreads it's acceptances over 2-3 days going by previous year posts. But sadly no mails so far.

    is it true for Harvard too ? I haven't got a rejection but one of the students who got selected said all the admits have gone and i shouldn't hope now.

    is it a good thing that my POI at yale said that my project was a perfect fit with what they are doing in the department now and then asking me to speak with a few of the students whose contact he mailed me back and asked to get a sense of the programme. And then ending with a line encouraging me to apply in certain fields. I am wondering if this is generic or has any value!
