  1. Sure--It feels like it might be an open secret at this point! I'd been warned of tokenism by one of my POIs at another school (who had actually gone to Michigan), and it was also evident upon meeting the cohort and faculty. The admitted student group was not very diverse and neither were the current students or the faculty; as a POC it felt like I would struggle to find a place in the department, and this was emphasized when they had a separate diversity panel. (I appreciate that they are putting in effort to making sure everyone's voices are heard, but it felt segregationist and forced.) In my own personal experience, I had a bad encounter with a POI. I also heard secondhand from another POC admit who experienced something similar. Some of the students talked about having to lodge a formal complaint against a racist professor the previous semester, too. The visit was only two days, so I can hardly imagine spending five or six years there. That said, this is really only my own personal experience and I don't want to dissuade anyone from going there or applying in the future. It really is a very strong program, and the current students that I met there were very welcoming and seemed happy (including the ones who needed to lodge a formal complaint!).
  2. Will turn down Michigan by the end of the week--sad to do so because this was my top choice going into the application process. Very attractive offer, but there were hints of institutional racism even in the short visit weekend.
  3. I received the university fellowship! It did not come with statistics of how many people were nominated vs. received though according to the website there are dozens of awardees each year. Congrats to you two!
  4. Just realized this might be better suited for the bank forum. Can it be moved?
  5. Hey everyone, One of the schools I applied to let me know I was nominated for a university-wide fellowship, but wouldn't know if I got it for another week and a half. I checked on their website, and it seems like there are dozens of awardees, in past years sometimes up to 3 from English. This leads me to wonder...Has anyone been told they were nominated for a university-wide fellowship and not gotten it?* I know I'll find out soon enough, but this school is my top choice and this would really make a big difference! *Edit: I ask because it seems like a weird, strange thing to tell someone they're up for something if you're not pretty sure they'll get it... But, who knows?

  7. I think it can be really helpful to have two data points to compare, if that helps any. Edit: Just realized I'm essentially echoing @lyonel_!
