  1. Hey! 

    Anyone here planning to move to Santa Cruz this fall? Would be great to talk! 

    Besides that, I was wondering if anyone tried to live in towns near SC for cheaper living? I'm trying to evaluate different options considering the housing crisis SC is going through.

    Thank you!! Best of luck with your apps too! 

    I’m an international student. I can’t exactly conclude from my interviews that all admitted students need to have gone through an interview process. However, they did say that interviews help them get a better understanding of the students’ research interests beyond what was included in the app, as well as to convey the committee’s interest in particular aspects of the applicant’s file. 

    Thank you for the info, it's really helpful (psychologically at least). Good luck!!

    I think so... I just finished my interview with two faculty members at UMichigan, and they said acceptances will go out in the next few days after they wrap up interviews by the 22nd. But I guess Michigan is quite early in the game with its review process; other places are expected to send out interview invites/decisions only after a week or so, if I'm not mistaken. 

    Congratulations! Seems like you're in a very good spot! 

    May I ask if you're a domestic/international student? and also if the faculty implied that all of those that are admitted are interviewed? 


  4. Hey, 

    It seems the Anthropology forum is non existent this year. Anyone want to share his/hers thoughts about the upcoming cycle? How does COVID impact your decision to where you're applying? 

    I'm applying for several departments: Chicago, Michigan, Yale, Brandeis and UC Santa Cruz. My work is on socio-environmental themes in the middle east.


    Lets help each other, or at least support during this arduous journey. Best of luck to us all!

    Has anyone heard from Yale or Cornell for interviews? I haven't received an e-mail so I'm assuming I won't be accepted. 

    I received an interview invitation for the socio-cultural track at Jan 25th. They told me that all interviews for the track should be concluded until Feb 7th. It seems like that was case for at least three more people, judging by the results page.

    I think somebody just posted the interview invitation from Yale. I applied to Yale too (anthro + F&ES) but I haven’t heard anything. I’m starting to get a little anxious..!

    Thanks. I can see it now on the results page. I feel your growing anxiety! Let's hope they will send it in the next few days...! The question is, should we be worried if we haven't got an interview invitation? Is it possible that one is considered 'exceptional' and therefore will not be interviewed before admission?

  7. Hey everyone, 

    Did anyone hear any news from Yale Anthropology? 

    I have read throughout the past forums that the department make an interview round. Does that mean that if I did not get an invitation I was rejected, or interviews are made only for 'pending' applicants? 

    Thanks! and good luck to us all
