Waiting to hear back from Georgetown’s Theological & Religious Studies PhD program. Others have been waitlisted or rejected last week, but I’ve gotten nothing so far. No one has said they’ve been accepted, either. I contacted the Theology Dept. and left a voicemail yesterday just inquiring and perhaps there might be a technical issue on my end. They definitely know I’ve applied, as I contacted my POI and another faculty member about my app during & after submission. I’ve heard that some people are waiting from St. Louis in a similar situation. All my other schools have been rejections so far... As this is my first cycle ever applying to PhD programs, is it typical to leave some people hanging with some notified and others not notified at all? Do schools send out second round rejections or waitlists without sending acceptances? It’s driving me bonkers not knowing my status, esp. when others have been rejected or waitlisted. I just don’t know what that means for me; is it good news? Trying not to get my hopes up too much.
