  1. Any hope if you are only on wait lists for audiology programs? Currently, I'm wait listed for 5 schools the other one I applied to is a rejection (ASU). Schools I'm wait listed for include University of Arizona, Utah State University, University of Utah, Idaho State University, and Pacific University (Hillsboro, OR). REALLY hoping something works out for me!
  2. I've been accepted to a great Epidemiology PhD program with full funding (program A), and would be 100% happy to go there. However, I am currently waitlisted at a place (program B ) that is a much much better fit for what I want to do, and I would rather go there if I get off the waitlist. My getting off the waitlist is contingent on my POI getting some grants, and not on someone responding to an offer, so there is no clear timeline for when I should expect to hear back. If I don't hear back by April 15th, I definitely want to accept the offer from program A, and program B knows that I wo
  3. I'm currently wait-listed at 4 schools (no acceptances yet). Each school I applied to had most of the same prereqs and then a few outliers. It looks like I won't know where I'm going until after summer registration starts, so I have no idea how I'm supposed to know what classes to take over the summer. It will kill me if I end up getting accepted off a wait list and don't have all the prereqs done, but at the same time, how am I supposed to take every single class that every school requires? My bachelor's is in another field, and the post-ba program I'm taking doesn't even offer a lot of the c
  4. Hello! I was wait listed for Columbia's Environmental Science and Policy MPA program (in SIPA), and I was wondering if anyone could give insight as to when usually would be the last day to receive a final decision for somebody on the wait list. Or when might the decision deadline be for accepted students? The thing about this one year program is that it starts in early summer, so trying to find examples from other conventional 2-year programs that start in the fall hasn't been helpful. I really don't know the details of how the wait list works (other than the concept of getting an of
  5. Hello. I'm an applicant, and I just have a few questions about the wait list process/ odds at the following schools seeing that there is an April 15th deadline for applicants to accept/ decline. Thanks in advance. 1) Is anyone on the wait list at the following schools? *Georgia State University * University of West Georgia *University of Georgia 2) When do you think applicants will hear back ( I know there's the "After April 15th" memo, but does that mean around the ending of April, May, June, ,etc? Lol ? 3) Is there anyone who was accepted to these programs but
  6. I recently got waitlisted into the graduate program of my dreams. I know being waitlisted is not good nor bad. In the words of my counselor, "It is easier to reject someone than it is to waitlist someone." Idk what I should do for the time being. I feel like I am hanging by the edge of a cliff until I hear back from the admissions committee. In the mean time, I thought about retaking my GRE (I barely met the required scores to apply) and reapplying in the fall as well as to other programs (SDSU and USD). I figured that if I posted this it will somehow calm my nerves down or talk to others who
  7. Forum created for those who applied to York University's MSW program for the Fall 2016 entrance. Please share your experience: have you been accepted? wait-listed? rejected? still waiting to hear from them? Here is insight on the program from a current student to ensure that York is a right fit for you: On 2016-03-16 at 1:13 PM, serendipitous22 said: Hi everyone. I'm currently in the MSW program at York University. I remember very well what it was like to repeatedly check my email and the various online application systems, and my mailbox... for those of you who are still
  8. I received an email yesterday saying I was in a short wait pool for the MA in Museology. I have been accepted to two other universities outside of the US since I'm currently in college abroad, but UW really was my top top top choice. Does anyone know maybe how many people a year they accept from the wait list?? Just want to know somewhat of my chance!!! Thanks!
  9. I have been waiting for a while to hear back from my top choice (a social policy program). I've been admitted to three other PhD programs and one of them had a deadline of March 24th. I know that is unusual but it's a great program and that's how they choose to do things. I wrote to the top choice letting them know that I was going to be in town in mid March and I would love to stop by, and also that I had another offer that was requesting that I respond by late March and asking whether they might have any update by mid March or so on my application. I didn't receive any response fr
  10. Does anyone have any insight on the chances of getting in to NYU's phd program from the waiting list? Or when I might hear back? It's my first choice, so if anyone here is ambiguous and would like to turn it down... That would be great also.
  11. Hi everyone, I've recently been informed that my top choice school has put me on their wait list. I already got an offer from another school where I could do well, so in the grand scheme of things I'm not too fussed because I can still go to grad school in the fall. Anyway, when I asked for more details about where I was ranked on the list, I was informed that "when a spot or two opens up, we will let the committee rank those on the list and then make offers" (verbatim from the email) Has anyone had any experience like this with being wait-listed, and is there a way to increase my chances
  12. Most of us applied to many universities, and the overlaps between our options is very big, and more if the university is well known or desired. So, it is very probable that the guy that was admitted to the school A, will be admitted to the school B, C, D, E and F. Maybe not all of his options, but more than one perhaps. He was outstanding between the whole applicants, and as many applicants will be the same at other schools, he will probably be outstanding at that set too. But he can only attend one school, so he will have to reject admission to all the other ones. Therefore it is very pr
  13. After receiving a MA that put me in significant debt, I have entered my first application cycle and I am not feeling optimistic. I applied to 6 schools and got 3 interviews. I was wait listed after 1 interview and have 2 interviews left to go. I can't help but think to backup plans because I just don't feel competitive enough for a psyD. My options are also significantly limited by cost. Nonetheless, I am not even halfway through the application cycle and I am feeling discouraged. My research background is not particularly strong, neither are my GRE scores. I've looked through many of the prev
  14. Multiple acceptances are incredible, but being wait-listed can be nerve-racking. Help provide some clarity for those waiting for spots to open up. Where have you been accepted? Toward which school(s) are you leaning? Which will you decline? Or, which do you think you will end up declining? Thanks!
  15. I'm applying for my post-professional masters in architecture, and here's my conundrum: I've been accepted into two very strong programs (Berkeley and University of Michigan), but I've also been wait listed by my top choice and one of the best programs in the country at Yale. I have to respond to Michigan by April 15th, and informally respond to Berkeley by next Tuesday (3/20) to tell them my level of interest, with no hard date of accepting the admissions offer yet. I've already written a letter to the head of the admissions committee at Yale, thanking them and reaffirming my interest, in the
  16. Good evening. Let me begin by saying that I've found the "Waiting It Out" board to be a *huge* comfort as I alternate between checking my e-mail 30 times a day or saying "screw it," pulling on a pair of comfy, worn out pajamas and spending my time eating ice cream and watching cartoons. Phineas and Ferb, Rocko's Modern Life, and a series of progressively stranger anime, if anyone's interested. Moving on to the point of this post, I have what you might call a situation. I've been accepted to one very highly ranked PhD program; however, I am still waiting to hear from three other programs
  17. Hi all, just wondering if anyone has been accepted to UConn with funding and will be declining. Any information from UConn acceptances appreciated. Thanks
  18. I started hearing back from MES MA applications last week. The results so far - a win (Chicago, w/ 1/3 funding), a loss (Harvard), and a draw (UTA). Still waiting on news from Arizona, G'town and AUB. Even if I go 0 for 3 on the remaining apps and don't get in to UTA I'm thrilled to go to Chicago, but does anyone know if UTA delves into its waitlist pool? And on that point, how much agency do I have in this position? I remember hearing/reading about how to get off a waitlist when I was applying for undergrad but that was a long time ago. Generally speaking, is letter writing/
