  1. so I was accepted into all three great M.A. programs that I applied for. However, right now I have funding for only one and I am doubtful that my external funding with come through for my other two. I want to plan campus visits but I need some counsel. Would you recommend that I visit all 3 even thought some might end up not being financially viable options? I work full time and it will be difficult to use weekends/take days off to travel to all three, not even talking about the cost if I can't be reimbursed at all. Should I just plan to visit the one school that has offered me funding and that I'm leaning towards? Or give the others a chance? I've talked about this with several people and I have received conflicting answers. Some say to save my money and time and visit just the one I am mainly leaning towards while other say that I could visit and fall in love the school and consider going even if the money isn't there. All thoughts and experiences are welcome!
  2. Hi everyone, I would like to visit two universities I have offers from. They are about 3 hours apart from each other and far from home. I'm wondering how much time should I spend touring campus, talking to faculty and chatting with grad students? Would a full day (or almost full) per school be enough to get a feel of each place?
  3. Hi, So I got invited to visit the campus of one of the schools I applied for for Earth Sciences and I'm not sure what would be appropriate to wear. Like do I wear full business casual or more like jeans and a nice shirt?
  4. Hi everyone! I have a question about campus visiting. I have been admitted to a school, which I’m pretty sure that I will attend. The department sent me a Recruitment Day invitation. Although I am interested in its schedule and it is certainly beneficial to know more about how everything goes in the department, the thing is that I live in Asia, so I doubt whether it is worthwhile spending 12 hours flying across the Pacific Ocean and another 12 hours back just for a day’s visit. Thus I feel inclined to decline the invitation, but I wonder whether distance alone is an acceptable reason not to attend the event? Would it be considered improper or arrogant? Thanks for helping me out!
  5. Hi everyone. So I recently got accepted into a really great program and they emailed me notifying me of campus visits in March. The issue is that it is my boyfriend's birthday one of these days. We've never celebrated his birthday together before due to distance and we were really excited that we were finally going to be together for this birthday. I've already been to the campus before for a summer program, but I know that campus visits include more than just seeing the campus. Is this a good excuse to not go to a campus visit? What do I tell the coordinators and POI? I don't know. What do you guys think?
  6. Hey! I'm an international applicant to Ph.D. programs in comp lit. Was just wondering if anyone's gone to campus visits yet. I got interview/campus visits from UC Santa Barbara and USC, but don't know what to expect. The USC one is four days and I have no idea what I should bring or wear, etc. Are they just like very expensive interviews? Any ideas would be helpful, thanks!
  7. Hi everyone! I have a question about campus visit. Here the thing, I applied for NEU for a phd program in ee, couple of weeks ago I received email invitation for a campus visit. I was so busy with my thesis defense that time and I did't reply, after I'm done with my defense, I found out that the campus visit date has passed. I emailed the director and got nothing. So does it have bad influence on my application? Cause I haven't heard back from them since then...
  8. So this is half questions and half venting tbh. The literature program I applied to invites a short lists of candidates to campus and admits people based off the interviews (and I'm assuming casual interactions) from that visit. So despite it being rather late, they haven't sent out any invitations. Any advice on how to make a specific literary topic applicable to many professors? I talked about learning a minority language (that maybe two professors could help me with) in my statement of purpose, but I'm worried other professors will find it too niche. This is a comparative literature program btw. Do you think it should suggest doing another language as well as the minority language I discussed or would that look too flaky? I also just got an email from the school inviting me to a Diversity day recruitment. It honestly made me so anxious, though, because it led with a "congratulations on your acceptance," but I haven't been accepted. It got me so riled up, and now I'm nervous about my interviews. No responses needed on that really, I'm just upset that the generic email got my hopes up.
  9. To other who got admitted to this program, were you invited to the open house? It seems this program had open house for graduates for the last years, but I have not received any invitations now. How about you guys? Thanks.
  10. I've been accepted to Baylor and University of Iowa. Prior to acceptance I went to a visiting students weekend at Baylor, but Iowa accepted me without an interview. Before I make the choice, is it okay to ask to visit Iowa? I'm not sure how to breach the topic, especially travel expense wise- I don't expect them to pay, so how to I ask to visit without asking for handouts? I of course wouldn't complain if they offered to pay, but I also know they are under no obligation. How do I phrase the email? I'm really interested in the program, but money isn't exactly flowing for me. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
