  1. I just recently went on the “Recruitment Weekend” at Texas Tech for the PhD program I applied for. It was obviously an interview in structure, but most of the weekend was them selling the university and program. They kept using verbiage like “if you choose to come here” or “should you choose us”, etc. which I thought strange since I hadn’t received an offer yet. Then, while on the cohort dinner (with current PhD students) more than two of the 9 invited on the trip had already received offers? Can someone explain what this means to me? I felt like it went really well and I feel I was quite competitive with those who already had attained offers. Any advice welcomed!
  2. Hi Everyone! I'm curious if anyone has been offered admissions to a school and then heard at a later date about funding or assistantships. I was accepted back in February. The acceptance letter said they are making decisions about it within the next month. So far, I haven't seen anyone accept or get offered any funding. But I feel like I just want to know now and I'm sick of waiting. So I'm looking for advice, do you think it would be bad if I call and as if they gave them out yet? Need help because I'm going crazy waiting haha! Anyways, I am talking about UNH. However, this may apply to other schools as well! Send me in your thoughts and advice!

    FUNDING OFFERS

    Here is a link from a previous year that has some information regarding offers people received. I am posting it here to make it easier to find.
  5. I've been asked to give them an idea of the chances of me accepting an offer from a university, and I'm not sure what to do. I applied to a few other schools, but I haven't heard back from them yet, so I don't know how to respond. Furthermore, by a few, I literally mean 3 schools total, so ... I obviously didn't apply to this school without serious consideration of accepting it, and its weight priority-wise also depends on my other (potential) acceptances. Sorry about the jumble of words.
  6. If we all post where we expect to accept or decline, I think it will give some of the folks on waitlists some idea of movement. Where have you been accepted to/waitlisted? What are your top choices?
  7. This past Monday, I was accepted to a PhD program, but they have given me a two-week deadline to accept their offer. From the acceptance letter: "Please respond as soon as possible, or at the latest within two weeks, as assistantship funds are limited." I've also been accepted to two other schools, both of which are giving me until April to make the decision (and both of which have not sent final information on the funding package). I may not have funding information from those schools until the end of the month, after this two-week deadline has passed. When my advisor told me about the two-week deadline over the phone and I expressed my concern about needing to decide so quickly, she told me that because this program is part of the management school at the university, they have different deadlines, and they require a quick decision since they only admit one or two students a year per program. She seemed surprised that other schools were giving me until April. However, the university's graduate school website indicates that offers of acceptance and financial assistance made before April 1 should remain open until April 15. Though I expressed concern, I have not yet formally asked for a deadline extension. Are there other schools (and specifically business management schools) that require such a quick decision prior to the traditional April 15 deadline? And if I am told that they cannot accommodate an extension, should I point out the deadline information from the graduate school's website?
  8. I'm wondering if graduate programs are likely to process your application and send you an offer (hopefully) sooner if you submit your application prior to the application deadline. Or do they process all applications (regardless of submission date) following the deadline, and then send out the first round of offers based on the entire pool of applicants?
  9. Hi Everyone, I have question regarding funding offers. I am in the fortunate position of having atleast two schools do decide between. Neither at this point is offering a package that includes summer funding. Is this something I should be negotiating? I'm not 100% sure this is something standard in my field but both of my schools are working hard to get me? Would it be to much to trying and get some type of guarantee for an assistantship/TA position during the summer? I'm currently a working in my field with no outside support so it's not a realistic expectation for me to "go home" for the summer and do feel like I need to be engaged in some type of paid career activity over the summer for in order to progress in my field and keep my bank account from going into the red. Any thoughts on how I should approach this topic?
