  1. Anyone waiting for Rutgers still? My profile still says no decision...
  2. Still nothing here either... seems like waitlist and acceptances went out.
  3. Is anyone claiming the Rutgers acceptance or waitlist? My application still says no decision
  4. official rejection rejection from Penn was just sent out.
  5. Claiming unofficial rejection from Penn. Got an email from a professor I’ve been hoping to work with and have been in contact with for a while. Super super upset since Penn happens to be such an excellent fit for my niche interest and I am geographically bound to this area due to kids. Apparently it was a really competitive year.
  6. Spoke to a coordinator at Rutgers, and we will hopefully hear next week.
  7. Did anyone else hear from Penn? Crossing my fingers that they are not done sending out acceptances
  8. Congratulations! I’m also CP. no email from Penn... so I’m guessing now news is bad news in this case...
  9. Same... full out panicking here 😅 UPenn is my top choice.
  10. I haven’t heard anything yet 😔 did anyone else receive an email from Upenn?
  11. Has anyone heard anything from either Upenn or Rutgers?
  12. I just got accepted to three schools I was rejected from twice. Don’t give up hope. Get some additional work experience and apply again if it’s something you really want to pursue. good luck!
  13. I’ve been there too. This is my third(!) time applying for PhD programs. I applied straight out of undergrad and the following year, didn’t get accepted. So I took a break from applying and got some work experience directly related to what I now want to research. This time around, I’ve had a lot more luck. I’m only applying to 5 schools, and so far, I have been accepted with funding to 3 and still waiting for two. I know it may seem tough with the rejections now, but I hope I can give you some hope that even if you don’t get in this year, you won’t have less of a chance in the future.
  14. Agree with the above mentioned. Always send a thank you email. questions I like to ask are about possibilities for publications and teaching. Summer funding and expectations around fieldwork (if appropriate for your research interest). I always ask about approx. average number of years for students to complete PhD. I know this can often be found online, but that question has given me some insights to the support and funding available at different departments. good luck!!
  15. Yes, I received an email from a faculty member this week to set up a call. This person told me decisions will be sent out soon.
  16. That’s awesome, congrats! Keeping my fingers crossed that my low quant scores won’t get in the way of acceptance.
  17. Just spoke to someone at Upenn and the committee hasn’t made decisions yet, so we won’t hear until mid to late February. Which matches up with the dates from last year. I was hoping maybe they would be earlier this year 😅
  18. After I wrote my post, I went back and looked at last years results and someone posted the exact same details in 2019. No one else reported interviews. Looks like this may be fake...
  19. Someone has reported an interview from UPenn, has anyone else received an email from them or is still waiting to hear anything? Keeping my fingers crossed that I get an email soon.
  20. Anyone hear back from Upenn? Last year they didn’t send out accept/reject until late in February, but it looks like this has varied over the past few years. Also, does anyone know if they usually conduct interviews?
  21. Anyone claiming the acceptance from Temple? They seem to have sent out some emails yesterday and I haven’t heard anything yet... hoping that they aren’t done emailing already
  22. Has anyone heard from Upenn? Also, does anyone know if they usually conduct interviews?
