  1. I think it was me. And while I will say that I was mostly joking, it kinda helps reduce my anxiety. This is a very anxious time for everyone, and we all deal with anxiety differently. For some, it might be easier to disconnect from their apps and wait it out. For me, I am currently dealing with the two-person problem where my partner of 5 years and I are applying to Ph.D. programs (he is neuroscience), and we are super anxious that we will be separated for the next 5-7 years. So I check my portals because 1) it helps me pass the time, and 2) it reminds me that I am still in the running fo
  2. Yeah I got rejected on Jan 28, 2021 at 12:15 PM and received my invite to apply to the MPP or MIA program on Feb 8, 2021 at 11:24 AM.
  3. I mean, since you know that UTA has started sending out decisions - it never hurts to contact the program coordinator/ assistant to see if all admission decisions have been sent out already or if they will be sent out on a rolling basis. I know we are all taught to be afraid of asking the program questions, but you need to do what feels right to you. Best of luck in whatever you decide to do!
  4. Anyone else check each of their application portals multiple times a day at this point? or is it just me? 😂
  5. It wasn't me, but it looks like the same email I received last year. It was weird because they asked me if I would like to join their MPP or MIA program even though I was already in my second year of an MPP program at UCI. It really made me feel like they didn't really look at my application. I hope they didn't do the same to any one else this year
  6. I chose American Politics (focus on the American presidency/political communication) for my subfield. I am not sure what BU's admissions process/timeline looks like, but I noticed that acceptances were sent out on the 24th and sent waitlists on the 25th. Plus, DGS only notified me of the waitlist decision via email and made no updates to my admission status on my online application. Maybe check your spam/junk folder to see if you have something from "Boston University - Graduate School of Arts and Sciences." If not, it never hurts to contact the program coordinator (Liam Dingle - ldingle@bu.ed
  7. Yeah, I feel the exact same way. I want to hear back from every program at this point, but I keep telling myself that no news is good news cause it means we are still in the running.
  8. Just checking to see if anyone has heard from/made contact with any of these programs: UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, UC Santa Cruz, USC, UC Davis, Boston College, University of Michigan, Michigan State, University of Florida, University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee I know this is a very long and stressful process, but it doesn't hurt to check in with y'all. Best of luck to everyone!
  9. Not a dumb question - it took me forever to learn what it meant last year! It stands for the number of programs you have been Admitted to, Waitlisted, or Rejected by during the cycle. P stand for pending a response.
  10. I received an email from Boston University placing me on the waitlist. A little bummed that it is not a straight-up admit, but I STILL HAVE A CHANCE!!!! That said, I know we are all waiting for more offers to come in before making any decisions. Still, if/when you decide you aren't attending BU (or ANY program), please let the program know ASAP so those of us on waitlists have the opportunity to join some fantastic programs.
  11. Congrats on the admit! That is so exciting I saw the BU admit and ran straight to my spam folder to check if I missed something. I guess I just play the waiting game until I get good or bad news. Until then - "No news is good news!"
  12. Anyone claiming the Boston University Admit? If so, how/when did you find out?
  13. CONGRATS TO ALL WHO HAVE RECENTLY RECEIVED GOOD NEWS! I hope it won't be too long before the rest of us can celebrate with you! With that said, has anyone heard back from any of these programs? UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, UC Santa Cruz, USC, UC Davis, Boston College, Boston University, University of Michigan, Michigan State, University of Florida, University of South Florida, University of Maryland - College Park, University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee I assume not because no one has posted about them yet, but it doesn't hurt to ask. 🙂 Here's to another week of anxious wait
  14. Sorry - I noticed that someone had posted potentially hearing from Ohio on the results page and just assumed that it was positive. I noticed that it's one of your schools, so I'm sorry for any anxiety it may have caused haha!
  15. So, just to double check - No one on this thread has heard anything from any of their school yet? Other than UofWash?
