    Thank you so much for the update! Not surprised, but still.. Boo. Glad they're notifying us¬†though. Getting salty that some other places¬†made their decisions a long time ago but still haven't sent out rejections. I'm sure they have their reasons but I'm getting impatient¬†ūüė≠

    I'm claiming the JHU acceptance from today. I didn't interview. I got an email from POI, scheduled a time to talk with her and then during our talk she told me via phone call I was accepted. I kind of hate gradcafe because people lie on here and it breeds a lot of neuroticism, but I'd like to be as honest about my process as I can. This admissions cycle has been CRAZY HARD and out of around 9 programs (I submitted all my apps in December, even the ones that were due in January), this is the first program I'm hearing back from (in terms of an acceptance... I've had two interviews thus far). I am sincerely wishing you and everyone else all the very best during this time. Craziest admissions cycle ever.

    Lol so that's like 2 out of the total of 3 admits at JHU this year.. 
    Gearing up for rejection at this rate! I just hope it's swift like a band-aid
     
    But also, @Qahwwaa why would the coordinator say end of Feb though. They aren't taking that many candidates for it to be in phases..strange

    Ok looks like it's another implicit rejection for me... genuinely hoping that schools can consider sending out acceptances and rejections on the same day so that I can be done with the wait sooner lol

    Heya
     
    Applied to Johns Hopkins but not expecting anything since they're probably going to admit around 4 people this year. But results were announced around 18-19th feb for the last few years so we still have a few days to go + pandemic related issues such as higher number of apps might also effect the timeline.. Either way, we still have a few days to go in my opinion..

    Willing to start a support group for those rejected by Indiana or really anyone who didn't get into their top choice. It was tough to read the email but deep down I knew it was coming, the competition was too fierce for me to stand a chance this cycle. I know I'm smart and capable, and I know all of you are too so on that note I'm going to share a tweet I saw this morning on twitter that's been helping me cope (and maybe it'll help you too)
    "This is a brutal doctoral admissions season. We are turning away brilliant scholars with records of inspiring work because universities are in a state of manufactured scarcity and mismanaged uncertainty. The loss is academia's which would be a far better place with these scholars" - @ananyaUCLA
    Maybe we didn't get in where we wanted, but it's not a reflection of us or our potential. I needed that reminder this morning when I read that IU rejection. 
    Sending out lots of abundance that we all get some closure and most of all good news soon! Feel free to reach out if you need someone to vent to or just chat!

    Congratulations for the interview invites! 
    Just wanted to confirm if you had an interview for Wisconsin Madison too? Or was it just Berkeley?Also, for Berkeley, are you applying for the Human Geography track or physical geography?
     
    Sorry for asking too many questions, I'm just trying to gauge if there's any hope or if I should brace for bad news..

    Hey guys! I got into CU Boulder with 4 year funding with tuition waiver. I've been offered around 22k a year with free dental health care. I have to pay a nominal amount towards fees and 10% of my student health insurance(350$), the rest will be covered the university. 
     
    Just wanted to ask if this is a decent offer? I'm an international student and I don't know much about funding packages.. Any help will be appreciated! 
    Also, would love to hear more about Boulder or the University+Department too!
