  1. Hey! Someone posted an interview on the results page a few weeks ago... I was waiting to hear from them too but at this stage I think that no news is bad news
  2. Hi! Does anyone have any info on Penn? Have they already started organising interviews?
  3. Thanks! I'm an archaeologist. It was an email sent by the department (not a POI) to several people. I'm not sure whether that was the whole list or if they're going to offer more interview dates later. Hope that helps!
  4. Thanks for the advice! I have the feeling they haven't seen my app yet, since it still says "materials needed". If they're going to issue interviews in a week, that's not a good sign for me. But thanks for letting us all know! There's a thin line between "appearing too hungry" and showing strong dedication/motivation, and I guess it's easy to fall from one category into the other when stressed. But it's good advice!
  5. Hi everyone! Thanks for this forum, it's good to see what kind of timeline one can expect to be contacted/interviewed and so on (and to share in the collective hysteria ). Congrats to those of you who have received offers, and good luck to everyone else! I am applying again this year after a 4 year hiatus. I am particularly interested in UPenn, and my application status on applyweb still says "materials needed'. English proficiency status: needed." I haven't taken any language tests, but the admissions office said I wouldn't need to as I already have two degrees from English-speaking in
  6. Thank you so much! Do you know if they will send us emails, or traditional letters? (In my email, they said that decisions would be 'mailed' soon...)
  7. Aelizabeth, I emailed UofArizona today and they said they're still reviewing applications. Good luck!
  8. Hey k.i.ivanov, congrats on your Oxford offer. Don't forget to check colleges, they can often give partial funding to which you can apply even if you didn't select that college. There probably are departmental grants as well. Check everywhere. Don't let this deter you! and email around. You might find some useful sources of money you didn't know about. (I know that in Cambridge, some sources of funding are well-hidden; assuming it must be the same with Oxford).
  9. Same. Do you think we should have heard good news by now? Do you think we should give up hope? I applied to 4 universities and it's the only one that hasn't rejected me yet/ for which we don't know if all (edit: accepted) applicants have been notified.
  10. Hey everyone I'm a bit off-topic, but there's a question I wanted to ask. Is it possible for schools never to send you a rejection email/letter? Acceptances for two of the schools I applied to came out last week, and I didn't hear a thing, which means I didn't get in (according to people on the Grad Café, all admitted students have been told). But do you think it's possible that they'll never tell me? That they'll just throw my file without bothering with an email or status update? Do I have to email them to get the confirmation that I've been rejected? It's just that I want to tell my ad
  11. Hey it's alright I'd rather know now than find out later. Best of luck and I hope you're getting in somewhere else!
  12. One person has been accepted by UPenn, and one person has been rejected. I haven't received any email. Is that one more example of the trickling down of results as described by Laurissimo, or is it just that these people contacted their POIs? Not that I'm hopeful (I'm really not) but it would be nice to know, and I'd be very happy if anyone could give me some information
  13. Hey, it looks as if someone just posted an admittance from U of Arizona, from yesterday. Was it you, rkg2012? I mean, you said something about the official results not being available... Did you get an unofficial result? I know, it's weird for me too, to apply to an Anthropology programme, coming from Archaeology. And so far it hasn't been successful!
