    When is the visit? If you went already - how did it go?

    UVA Visit 2019

    Thanks for all this. I've been on the tipping point between UVA and another school , so this is very helpful. But as a theorist, this is of course disappointing to hear. At least some of the things you've mentioned were echoed in e-mail correspondences I have had myself with current grad students. This makes my decision going forward easier. I wonder if other people feel the same way or disagree, or if the activity in these forums have just died down now later in the admission process.

    UVA Visit 2019

    For the people who went to UVa for the visiting days/admitted student event, do you mind sharing your experience? I'm theory but was unable to attend. In particular I am hoping to hear more about 1. the overall impression of the department, its students, professors, and facilities, 2. did grad students seem content at UVa?, 3. summer funding opportunities, 4. job prospects after UVa, and other things of that nature. Any information would be tremendously helpful.

    Is anyone headed to UVA for the visit? I am not able to make it myself and was hoping people - and especially theorists - could tell me about the experience there.

    2018-2019 Application Thread

    What can possibly be the reason that Davis has not sent out rejections after now 5 weeks? People have been accepted and rejected at roughly the same time all previous years... Is there still hope that people may be waitlisted if they have not heard anything yet? Apparently the visiting days were 3 weeks ago so it seems odd imo.

    Yeah it's the waitlist I'm wondering about. Or maybe they're not having a waitlist at all, but will simply admit new students after currently admitted students have visited and turned down the offers they have received. Maybe

    Did anyone receive a rejection from UC Davis? My application is still pending it seems...

    I would, and this is just my preference, not go for the visit at all and instead give up my spot such that those waitlisted might receive offers.

  14. Hello everyone. This thread is meant as a place to share experiences as people go and visit the programs they have been admitted to. What is good about the program? And bad? Which departments are you deciding between after the visits?

    Political Theory Applications 2019

    I think programs of that kind are quite interesting. Joining one of those departments will certainly make you a political theorist with an even more narrow expertise, but if your interests are in that direction then it's a good choice for sure. Are you at Stanford for theory?
