  1. Hi, I'm a political science PhD applicant and could not find any active polisci forum... Maybe we can make one ourselves! I know it's a bit early, but has as anybody heard from any schools? It seems from the results that some already got accepted from Yale (a few), Harvard (one) and Princeton (one). I know it won't change anything ... but sharing won't hurt anyone, and in the future we will be walking down the same road anyway! P.S. I did interview today with Emory.
  2. Linguistics F18

    Hi everyone! Does anyone happen to know if UC Berkeley already sent out all interview invitations for Linguistics (PhD, 2018)? I'm guessing by now I'll be rejected, so I'd rather find out soon enough. If anyone reading this got an invite, what's your subfield? Also, when should we hear from UCLA, UMASS Amherst and Michigan Ann Arbor (same programme)? Thanks and best of luck to everyone!
  3. I Need Your Input

    Honestly, I've never wanted anything more, and the past few months have been pretty hellish. Anxiety about applications was one thing, but health issues last semester kept me from giving a 100% on the most important bit of all, the writing sample. I'm applying to top programs (BPhil at Oxford, top-40 PGR programs, etc.) with the following: -3.98/4.00 -170 (verbal) / 158 (quant) / 5.5 (writing) -Good letters from people working in my AOI, but from a private liberal arts university that is unranked and lacks a PhD program -A good writing sample, but nowhere near what it could or should have been -Lol I am 99% sure this matters nil but my ethnicity is underrepresented in philosophy (not my gender though) What are the odds that I just get completely shut out? Thoughts? Would extremely appreciate any advice from current/past applicants. Thanks.
  4. Hello fellow students, I just wanted to inquire if anyone has heard from Memorial University in regards to their Masters in Psychology application for Fall 2017 semester? More so, I was wondering how the acceptances/rejections work and if there is a waitlist? Will I receive an email acceptance/rejection or something in the mail? Just today my Application Status was changed from "Complete - Ready for Review" to "Decision Made" therefore, I emailed the Graduate Studies Office and waiting for reply. Though I still remain hopeful for an acceptance, it is pretty late to receive one. Compared to other programs, is this considered late to hear back? I really appreciate any feedback/opinions/questions/critique/insight/etc.! Thanks a lot in advance!
  5. Hello friends so I received this from one of the school I applied you guys think it's a good sign?
  6. Morgan state university

  7. Hello everyone, As a form of procrastination I kept track of the anthro program results this year in an excel file. Here are some interesting things I found: - # of anthro submitted decisions = 490 - # of acceptances = 196 (40%) - # of rejections = 294 (60%) - # of programs represented = 109 - Top 10 most applied to programs (# of decisions in parentheses): 1. Michigan (24), 2. Brown (19), 2. Harvard (19), 4. UC Berkeley (18), 5. Toronto (17), 6. NYU (16), 6. Stanford (16), 8. Oxford (14), 9. Princeton (13), 9. UCLA (13) - Top 10 most selective programs (% admitted, at least 5 submitted decisions): 1. Chicago (0%), 2. Brown (5%), 3. Stanford (6%), 4. Cornell (9%), 5. UC Santa Barbara (11%), 6. NYU (12%), 7. Princeton (15%), 8. Emory (17%), 8. SUNY Stony Brook (17%), 8. Notre Dame (17%) - Top 10 most selective programs (% admitted, at least 10 submitted decisions): 1. Chicago (0%), 2. Brown (5%), 3. Stanford (6%), 4. Cornell (9%), 5. NYU (12%), 6. Princeton (15%), 7. Michigan (20%), 8. Harvard (21%), 9. Columbia (25%), 10. UC Berkeley (27%) - February is when the action happens. The vast majority of decisions are made in this month, with many fewer in January and March: -I attached the excel file if anyone else wants to play around with the numbers -As a word of caution, I have no background in statistics and have no idea how the Grad Cafe data relate to the true amount of applications each school received. This is meant to just be a rough idea as to how the application season went and should not be taken seriously. I hope it might help people who apply next year have an idea as to which schools are popular and when schools release their results. grad school national results.xlsx

  9. Hello! I'm having trouble submitting results on the survey page. I filled out everything required correctly in "Submit your Results" but after I submit, I get a blank page with an error message at the top "Could not open socket", and my submitted results aren't available when I search them. I was wondering if there is a current glitch with the results section? Thank you for your help!
  10. Hello, Is there anyone who applied to Oxford's Master's Programmes by the January 6th deadline and still waiting for results? Please let me know I'm not alone in this anxious situation!
  11. Hello there, all. This is my first post! Just a warning, there are a few poor quality puns/analogies peppered about. Please take this opportunity to exercise forgiveness, as I come in peace. I recently joined the cafe to satiate my impulse to do something other than refresh my application statuses every few hours, or minutes. I've read several posts expressing the anxiousness and uneasiness of the waiting process, and I completely empathize. My own experience of this process has been mostly good, but a roller coaster ride no less. There are just so many ******* feelings!! For goodness sake. Like most of you, I'm weathering the gamut. One moment I'm fantasizing about my dreams coming true, imagining the apartment I'll live in, or what new cafes I'll seek out for long studying/work sessions. About how freakin' awesome it would feel to see that "We are pleased to inform you...", or that fat envelope in the post. I feel the excitement and giddiness in my chest. It feels like a wave of energy pouring over and through me!--Then, a bit later, I'm feeling that bowling ball in my stomach. I'm meticulously fine-tooth combing my (already submitted) applications in my head, looking for areas of weakness, while brushing past areas of fortitude and grace. Even if I don't find anything to corroborate my dread, my insides are still an abyss. Now, with that said, for most of us the aforementioned are not uncommon occurrences or feelings. Knowing a little bit about the cognitive-emotional functions and processes of the brain and body, it seems quite natural--and it is. However, I think there can come a point when we step into a territory where we can easily overwhelm ourselves, and even accidentally (or via acts of self-degradation) slip into a hyper or hypo state, and stress out/depress not only our thoughts, or nerves, but our entire self. Our psyches, our subconscious, our biorhythms. We can sometimes take it to a place of what can only be described as temporary psychosis, and I'd like to now get to my point of telling you why none of us deserve to do that to ourselves! We are freaking out, sizing ourselves up to anything and anyone, building ourselves up and tearing ourselves down, diving down the rabbit holes of what ifs, and am I good enoughs, because we CARE! We care a whole lot. We care parking lots. We care stadiums and amphitheaters. If each "refresh" or "login" or worry, or pang in the gut were an individual, we'd have colonized Mars already. We are here, marinating in our own electric nerves, because we care tremendously about some pretty incredible things. We fear because we care, and not just about getting in to our dream (or any) graduate program/university. We care about learning, and discovery, knowledge, research, and exploration. We care about addressing some of the most pressing issues of our society/country/world/planet, for the better (hopefully). We care about making a difference, solving problems, inventing solutions--people, we are ******* awesome, and I believe that is the bright underbelly of the waiting-and-dreading process. I want to take this moment to simply remind not only all you cool people, but myself as well. I think we deserve to acknowledge just how tremendous we are. If you must succumb to the whirlpool of waiting, what ifs, and borderline mania, at least let the bold text come back to you in the form of a reprieve, or as the eye of the 'hurrycane'. I could go on for far longer than anyone would read, about the benefits of acknowledging what a badass you are for getting this far and for giving a **** about something, but I will leave that for another post, should any fancy some brain science talk, strange analogies and metaphors for life, or simply if you'd like me to continue to talk you up. Because I will. In the meantime, may this serve as a gentle reminder to acknowledge all the greatness you've harvested within and for yourself. Take a second (or 10min every day) to breathe deeply. Breathe in the acknowledgement that you care and can hardly contain yourself, because you're a G. A badass, legit, on fleek... You're positively superb. By pursuing learning, knowledge, reflection, growth and manifestation, we are not only expanding our awareness of ourselves and the immediate world around us, but we are expanding the universe's awareness of itself, and that is ******* incredible, and we really deserve to give ourselves more credit for it. I wish the very best of luck and good fortune to you all during this process/these times. And, no matter where you think/feel you are in your own progress of self, please know that you as you are right now is enough and is valid, and has no more or less worth than the you who you perhaps are hoping to embody at some future point. If that seems hard to believe, remember, our perceptions are our filters for reality. Therefore, as within so without.

  13. MSc Oxford Geography

    Hello, Has anyone applied to the MSc/MPhil at Oxford in geography? I applied Jan. 22 in human geography and I am waiting to hear back. Good luck all.
  14. I have applied for MS in Computer Science at Rutgers for Fall 2016. Can someone please help me find the 'Resend Email to Recommender' Link for my Rutgers Application. Very urgent. Thanks
  15. Hi guys, I am under the impression that no one applied to caltech EE this year .....prove me wrong by sharing any info.... On a serious note, has anyone heard back from pasadena(EE Caltech) yet? I guess the probable candidates might already have had their interviews?
  16. A new thread to share information about the applications for the PhD in Finance (Fall 2012). I understand that the only program in Finance that made a movement so far was HBS (Bus.Ec.). They seemed to have invited 10 people for interviews. Not a word whether they will open a "2nd round" of interviews. Any more news? Anything from other schools so far? Share your thoughts and info...!!!
  17. I thought I would start a new topic like there has been in past years to post profile information, results speculation, and waiting anticipating for anthropology. Right now, I am especially anxious to hear about Duke Evolutionary Anthro. From past results, it seems like people are contacted for interviews around this time of year. I don't think I have a great shot, but it would be a dream come true. How is everyone else doing with this woefully uneventful time of the process?
  18. PhD applications for 2012-2013 chit chat...

    Hi all... I imagine that I'm not the only one applying to doctoral programs this year. I figured that this forum might be a decent place to share our experience, strength, hopes, and let-downs this year. Best of luck to you all...
