  1. Received my rejection letter from Stanford and, while I’m disappointed, my first thought was that this means I can accept my offer to Yale 😊 I was waiting because I knew Stanford is so close to home and would be my family’s first choice and I thought it was mine too until I had my Yale interview. I know in my gut that Yale is the place for me and I am so excited to accept my offer and make preparations for my move across the country. Has anyone had experience with a move cross-country move before? Would love any advice I can get 😅 Good luck with the rest of decision season everyone. Th
  2. Are you going for admitted students day?
  3. Yes! I got into the combined PhD for history and African American Studies 😊
  4. Someone on the results page asked what the Yale interview entailed. To my knowledge the interview is required by all graduate programs (at Yale) and is used by the history department as a way to gauge interest. I was asked to talk about my interests, my current studies at oxford, past research experiences, who I worked with and how that impacted my work, etc. it was informal and honestly just an enjoyable chat. I followed up with questions about the structure of the program and source access. Hope this info helps
  5. Did you have an interview? I don’t know whether all the emails have gone out yet or not
  6. I am literally overcome with emotion 😭 I got into Yale!!!
  7. Not typically for the history department
  8. Does anyone know why the Stanford Application Status would read as incomplete if all the paperwork has been submitted and received? Just checked and am a bit worried 😅
  9. Currently grappling with the reality that I probably didn’t get into Penn and UVA based on a lack of communication. I’m just reminding myself that I worked hard to get here and that no matter the result, nothing will change that. I hope it works out for myself and everyone else but just remember there’s always next year and if we are truly passionate about this field of study, nothing will keep us from eventually reaching our goals 💕 good luck everyone
  10. I have an internal clock now for when the east and west coasts hit 9am-5pm 😅 the weekend was quite pleasant because I knew there was no possibility of receiving anything
  11. Congratulations on UCLA! I went there for undergrad and UCLA has one of the most wonderful and supportive departments! You’ll have a wonderful time and I would highly recommend going for admitted students day if you haven’t been to UCLA yet. If you have any questions about any of the American History faculty or living in LA, feel free to let me know
  12. Does anyone know which schools typically offer an admitted students visit? thanks in advance
