  1. what's with the staggered uchicago acceptances?
  2. which schools, if you don't mind me asking?
  3. is there any specific day of the week decisions are more likely to come out on?
  4. results search says someone has heard from northwestern for an interview (history phd)-- can anyone speak to this?
  5. Hi folks, I've been a user of ~~academic twitter~~ for a bit but I found myself wanting to ask questions without my name attached. After talking to other grad students I realized this was a pretty common need, so I've been working on a project where you can submit your questions anonymously on twitter and get answers from academic twitter! I hope it turns into a resource on everything from department politics to personal to publishing questions for folks in grad school. Please follow and share if so inclined :) Hope this post is ok and helps some folks! https://twitter.com/AskAcademx
  6. Just got an email that I got awarded!!!! So f'ing happy especially after nsf disappointment. I applied in neural sciences. Good luck to everyone else!!!!
  7. def had a few too many drinks, want to sleep so badly
  8. Also this time is earlier than other years-- usually it goes to 5am. Here's to hoping that we don't have to be up all night!
  10. someone asked on fb about notifications and got this response: National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Thanks for your message! The applications are currently being reviewed by the DoD. They expect to inform us of their decisions by sometime in mid-April, at which point we will notify all selected applicants. Have a great weekend! March 28 at 2:39pm
  11. yep! for one of my review sheets from last year, I'm not sure if he even read my proposal/CV/etc. He commented that I have no publications (false) and that all my research experience is in neuro (3/4 of my past labs have not been in neuroscience), etc.
  12. I also am guessing the people answering the phones have minimal idea of website mechanics
  13. yep, have had 3 dreams. First one I didn't get it, second I did, third I didn't find out
  14. I'm confused what this tells us?
  15. yep!! 8:30pm or 9:30 EST last year
  16. They say that every year but it still often comes out at the end of March. Still hoping for this Friday!
  17. They've always said early April even when it has come out late March. Hoping for next Friday
  18. Actually, no-- just checked my email from last year (I'm on EST) and it came at 3:49 AM. So those are like mountain time zone.
  19. agree!!! I found it curious that no one was posting on the forum about it, that ALL the posts on the results page came on the same day (even if all the emails were sent the same day I doubt everyone would post there the same day), and I search twitter/tumblr/etc that day and NO ONE posted there about it either. Also I thought it weird that people's first instinct would be to post on the results page instead of coming to the forum considering additional information has never been asked for before.
  20. Hmm, someone asked NSF on their twitter about the one page supplament: Stephen Ferguson ‏@RattleCall Jan 25 @NSFGRFP I've heard reports of applicants asked to provide another 1 pg statement. Any info on what that would be about? NSF GRFP ‏@NSFGRFP Feb 14 @RattleCall there is also the 1pg eligibility statement that some applicants submit per the requirements of the #GRFP Program Solicitation Stephen Ferguson ‏@RattleCall Feb 14 @NSFGRFP Fair enough, but that wasn't what these were asking for... Just was curious. Stephen Ferguson ‏@RattleCall Feb 14 @NSFGRFP Thank
  21. anyone posting here get one of the requests for more info? if so, could you post the full email?
  22. question for other people in research-- we get credit hours for our lab experience and rotations, albeit the grades are pass fail. I WASN'T going to include it in my credit hours since it's not really a class. Should I? Thanks!
