  1. Hey All, I know that this cycle is really picking up steam for some people, while for others it is starting to close down. Either way I know that most of us are facing some sort of rejection. I wanted to share this Reddit thread from last year where an AdComm professor in a social science field provides an in-depth analysis of the admissions process. The Professor discusses how and why students are accepted or rejected. They also answers a ton of questions in the comments section, so be sure to read below the initial post. I'm hoping that this will be able to offer some insight into

    Hi soooo I have applied to 12 PhD Clinical Psychology programs. Yes 12! And now I am worried even that isn't enough because I literally haven't heard a thing from any of them. I haven't received any rejection emails, but I haven't received any interviews/acceptance emails. I check the results page and for a lot of schools, other people seem to have received interviews sooooo does this mean I'm out? I am new to this. I am also really discouraged. I thought I was a competitive applicant with the exception of my GRE scores but I am just in limbo and worried that I didn't even get into any program
  3. I applied to approximately 11 schools for MFA in fiction and I was rejected from 10 of them. The school that did accept me was College of New Rochelle in Westchester, NY. While the program is tempting given its proximity to NYC, its social justice theme and its exceptional 'newness' (it was launched in 2015), they only offered about 5,000 in merit scholarship overall, and for a school that's $10,000 a semester it barely covers much, especially for someone who has to simultaneously live in new york that is, in of itself, unaffordable. As such, that makes going to get an MFA less than an o
  4. Evening everyone! I'm a potential applicant for PhD programs next year if things don't work out this year. I'm also planning to pursue a dual-title phd in communication at one of the schools I applied to this year. Any places I can use to look for phd programs that specialize in health comm/intercultural comm/social networks? Thank you in advance!
  5. I applied to a number of MASC Electrical Engineering Graduate programs in Canada for the September Intakes and have been unfortunately rejected by all of them. I am applying to a few schools now for the MENG program for the January 2020 Intake and am considering re-applying to a couple of the schools that rejected me for this program as well. Would it make sense to re-apply to these schools for the MENG program or would it be a waste of time and money? I honestly thought my application was strong enough to warrant an acceptance into the MASC program but that was not th
  6. Trying to see if anyone has heard from St. Augustine! I had my interview two weeks ago and was told I should expect an update between 2-3 weeks from the admissions board via email. I thought that was a little odd due to the fact that the deadline is dec 15th. Wanted to see if anyone else is waiting to hear if they got in!
  7. I have applied 7 schools for PhD program, got replies from 3 of them (1 rejection, 2 MS). However, I have not heard anything from 4 schools (MSE- University of Delaware, University of Central Florida, Iowa State and BME- Drexel). The mighty 15th April is only a few days away. Do I have any chance? Or should I expect rejection from those? I am really very worried.
  8. Hi all, For those of us who didn't get in this time around (le sigh) I thought it might be helpful to commiserate. We can share our reflections over this cycle, what we are going to do to improve for next cycle, and any plan B's in the mean time. This isn't my first rodeo and I'm getting really down on myself. I think talking among people in similar situations could be really helpful for a lot of people. I'm sure I'm not the only one that is not taking rejection lightly!
  9. Hey y'all, anyone feel like they won't get accepted anywhere this cycle? For me this cycle has been 3 rejections, one unfunded offer (which I can't take, am broke AF), and two waitlists. A very small part of me is still holding out hope that those waitlists will turn into something, but I am moving forward and have an interview with a great job next week and have already began preparing for next cycle.
  10. Hi all, Hope everything is well for all of you! Congrats for those who got their invitations and offers! I'm not sure if there's anyone in looking at this post and is at the same stage as me: got nothing but only rejection letters (5/9). I applied for 9 PhD programs and haven't heard from Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and UCB, but I see in the cafe that many people have got their invitations, and the interview dates are reasonably close. (One of the disadvatages I have is that I'm an international student, thus we are considered separately because of funding issue.) As a resu
  11. Hi all, I am waiting on pins and needles to hear back from my MFA programs and I'm trying to put my energy into something worthwhile, so here I am. What schools have ya'll applied to? What are your top schools? What's your genre? How many times have you applied before? Has anyone heard back from anywhere yet? I know it's early in the game but I've had so much nervous energy just thinking about it. Anyone else? How's everybody feeling? Good luck on your acceptances!

  13. Hello! I am looking for current/former/denied/accepted counseling students from these universities: University of South Carolina University of Utah Vanderbilt University University of Arkansas University of Vermont University of Texas at Tyler Regis University (Denver/Thornton) Texas Christian University Tarleton State University University of Texas at San Antonio I would like to know how long it took you to get accepted and what your GPA/GRE scores were? If you've been rejected from these programs, what were your GRE scores
  14. Does anyone know if Notre Dame, of its own initiative, will accept an applicant into its MTS program while at the same time denying him admission to its theology PhD program (in cases where the person has only applied to the theology PhD, but not the MTS)? If one desires such treatment, do we have to indicate as such on our applications? Do schools only do this for people applying straight from undergrad?
  15. Dear All political scientists, I would love to do a PhD and do research. But, I am seriously worried about my ability to do Ph.D with two reasons. First, my all more than 20 applications have been rejected so far. Most of the applications went to Europe. I did my master in Europe as well. Problem is that my academic transcript of master is around 2.5/4.5 in American way. Of course, I did my best during the master course... Actually, before starting master back then, I did not recognize what research is ever. I had no idea what research question is even. I think that i
  16. I just finished my undergrad in december and had applied to do my masters in the fall.. but Unfortunately grad school is not in the cards for me this fall. I applied for 2 different programs (I know that's not a lot..) and got rejections from both. I'm a little disheartened obviously but I'm trying not to be defeated and looking into what I can do in these next 8 months to really improve my chances for applying this fall for a fall 2019 intake. I've already asked around and there unfortunately aren't any volunteer opportunities in the Environmental field near me as I'm having to live in
  17. Heya, folks. I've been lurking for a couple weeks, but I couldn't seem to find a 2018 acceptance/rejection thread specifically for Philosophy M.A. applicants, so I figured I'd start one myself. I applied to four programs: NIU, UW-Milwaukee, Virginia Tech, and Western Michigan. I was admitted to NIU early this month--2/7, I want to say?--but am still awaiting news on funding. I've not yet heard back from any of my other three programs, but, of course, the deadlines for those applications have only recently passed, so I imagine I'll be waiting some time yet... Any others admitted
  18. Hello everyone, If you're reading this I hope you're doing well and trying to take care of yourself. As application updates are rolling in I've noticed a trend of unfortunate situations where posters have been in the PhD application game for a few cycles (2-3) and continue to be unsuccessful in their endeavors. I keep reading about experiences where they've gotten 0 offers time and time again, and it's definitely scaring me. I was wondering if this has anything to do with the specific field they're in, or the research they want to do? For example, I can see this happening for clinical ps
  19. Hey all, Has anyone heard anything (interview/rejection/acceptance) from the developmental PhD program at University of Washington? I haven't been contacted by this program in any capacity since I sent in my application. I didn't get an interview invite though so I assume I'm rejected, but I wanted to know if anyone else that applied has heard anything. I've been checking the results survey page regularly and nothing for developmental comes up under UW for this cycle. It would just be nice to get an idea of what's happening so I know how to move forward with my decisions/plans. I almost
  20. Hi there, Have any UIC MHA applicants received notice of acceptance or denial? Also curious to hear plans for tuition. i.e. assistantship, grants, scholarships, etc. Thanks for you time.
  21. Hi, everybody. I wanted to take a couple minutes to say this: Today, March 2, 2018, I am feeling at peace with the prospect of going 0-for-4 with this year's applications. I've spent yesterday and today working on resumes, which has been helpful in numerous ways: distracting me from feelings of self-doubt and anxiety, giving me hope about my decision to move to NYC (and changing careers) regardless of admissions decisions, and making me feel like I have even a modicum of control over my future. If, in fact, I end up joining the Zero Percenters in the next couple of weeks, I will be hu
  22. Let's share our experience for the Fall 2017 cycle!
  23. Hey everyone, I am a prospective graduate student for the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley ( Cal ). I am still waiting for an acceptance letter. I'm Speaking Acceptance Into Existence (i.e my user name ) Have you been accepted, rejected, still waiting? Any news on when your department will release decision letters? Lets Discuss! <3
  24. If you're anything like me, you're thinking "jeez I haven't heard back/gotten accepted anywhere yet....wth will I do this fall?" In my desire to have some sort of a plan (if only for being able to work towards something and remain sane), I've thought of a thousand other things I'd like to/plan to do if I don't end up going to graduate school. Some are silly (biologist-turned-celebrity-chef) and some are legitimate (gain more research experience and network), but all have the potential to be extremely valid come graduation in a few months. What about you?
  25. It’s getting really hard to keep going. I’ve spent a year and almost $2,000 crafting grad school applications and in the course of a week, I’ve already been rejected from 7 of the 10 schools I applied to. I’ve even been rejected from safe schools. I took GRE classes, paid writing consultants and put everything into my volunteer work and gap year. But it still wasn’t enough. I don’t know why I thought I could do this. I don’t know why I thought I was good enough. Whenever I tell someone this, the only comforting response is “there’s always next year,” but this is actually my 2nd year applying a
