  1. Just wondering to which specializations/deadlines people applied? How did interviews go (if you had one)? How is everyone feeling about their admissions generally w Medill? I know Berkeley is pretty topical on the forum at the moment— also happy to discuss that. NYU, USC, Columbia, etc. as well! But I just wanted to lead with Medill seeing that a lot of people have said they’ve applied. Thoughts? I’m v curious and excited! And anxious hahaha
  2. Hello everyone! Most applications were due today so congrats on getting them in! Now we need to sit back, relax, feel the anxiety, and wait for interview offers. I started this this thread so that we can give each other emotional support during this time. I know I'm an anxious and excited ball of emotions and will probably be checking my inbox daily for the next couple of months. I'm sure many of you are feeling the same way! May we wish each other all the best.
  3. Hey all, I just wanted to start a thread for any fellow MArch applicants waiting on decisions. I applied to UBC, Carleton and UofT for the three year program what about you guys? I know its still early for Canadian schools but anyone hear back yet?
  4. Has anyone heard from University of the Pacific for the Speech Language Pathology 15 or 24 month program? The due date for the application was postponed to a later date, so I’m wondering if this has pushed back their responses to applications. The longer I wait the more I start thinking that I’m going to be declined. Has anyone heard back from them yet? Or Has anyone been in this same situation before with their school? If so, does it mean your less likely to get accepted if they contact you later in the month? Thanks!
  5. Is anyone else getting more anxious every day? I only applied to one school and they said they were "hoping to have most, if not all, decisions out by mid February". Share your anxieties!
  6. Hi everyone, I have been waitlisted at my number one choice school... it's starting to get pretty dark. Please vent/tell stories about your waitlist experience or anything you have heard. I am waitlisted at SJSU for speech pathology. If anyone knows anything about it please feel free to share. Best of luck to us all!
  7. I’m applying to Csudh Msw fall 2019 program, if you have applied what are your stats and when did you or when are you turning in your application. Do you know when they start sending out acceptance or denials? Why did you choose CSUDH?
  8. Hi guys, does anyone have any idea about when the decisions for Waterloo MMath Computer Science (MS CS) for Winter 2020 will be given out? I have applied to Waterloo on Jan 20 for Winter 2020 since Fall 2019 deadline was already over...However, I have also applied to other colleges for Fall 2019 admissions. So, if I get admit in other Fall 2019 colleges, how long should I wait before accepting their offers over Waterloo?
  9. Ever since I finished with my applications in the first week of December, I had been braving the waiting period quite well. I enjoyed Christmas with my family, helped a friend with his applications, read books and articles, and worked out. The anxiety started creeping in from New Year onwards when in the results page of gradcafe I read the acceptance posts of the students. What relieved was that the posts were made by Ph.D. aspirants since I have applied to a master’s program. However, the relief was short-lived since today I noticed that a person had been accepted to the master’s program in
  10. This is for an Occupational Therapy program where this will be the inaugural class. Do more students apply to programs such as this? How are my chances of getting off the waitlist for this type of program? And also, it starts May 21st! Should I still hold on to hope, or move on? I thought I had a really good chance during my interview in March.
  11. Hi everyone, I applied to a variety of MFA and MA programs in fiction writing, including the MA program at Concordia University in Montreal, QC, Canada. I am from the US, thus an international applicant. Today, I received a weird email from someone in financial aid, providing important links for financial aid resources. It thanks me for my interest in CU, and says that " Once you have been accepted we can discuss your program costs, your budget and determine what resources are available to you." I found this email very weird. I've never received anything like it from another program
  12. Would it be inappropriate for me to reach out to a POI about something unrelated to my application? I had a Skype call with a POI at UC Santa Barbara back in November and email contact in the time since then (though not in the last month over the holidays.) She's my top choice for a lab/program and I think she was interested in me as well. I haven't heard anything about admissions yet but I'm not concerned at this point. However, I've seen in the news all the crazy stuff that has been happening there - the wildfires, mudslides, and winter storms. I kinda wanted to send an email to her and her
  13. Hey all! I was chatting with a coworker of mine who is in the med school application process now. She was telling me that it's quite common for applicants to send update letters to their schools of interest during the waiting period between applications and interviews. I had never heard of this as it relates to graduate programs, and I was wondering if anyone had ever done it before. It's been around 2 months since I started submitting applications, and I do work a full-time research job. In those two months I have made significant progress on some of my projects as well as a second-auth
  14. Hello there, all. This is my first post! Just a warning, there are a few poor quality puns/analogies peppered about. Please take this opportunity to exercise forgiveness, as I come in peace. I recently joined the cafe to satiate my impulse to do something other than refresh my application statuses every few hours, or minutes. I've read several posts expressing the anxiousness and uneasiness of the waiting process, and I completely empathize. My own experience of this process has been mostly good, but a roller coaster ride no less. There are just so many ******* feelings!! For goodne
  15. Wondering if people who have been on the admin/admissions side of things have any insight on what the general etiquette is for people placed on waitlists? After thoroughly researching Canadian schools, locations and the direction of graduate students, I'm at 2a/1w/0r (out of three applications), which is wonderful, but it just so happens that - of course - the 1w is my top choice school, and the place I feel I would be challenged the most. I have less than two weeks to respond to one of the acceptances, and I'm wondering how much "pushing" is acceptable. Is calling/emailing and discussing the
  16. I made these to express my frustration. Enjoy!
  17. So I have ridden the application wave. First with the application anxiety of where to apply, then the brief but welcome relief of getting all documents in on time. This leading to giddy anticipation of getting in to my top schools only to be met by deafening silence from adcomms. Then finally, getting the news that this year was a bust. At first, I didn't think I could possibly go through this again. It almost seems masochistic to do this to yourself twice..or more. Which leads me to this post.....how many of you have applied more than once? Are odds better the second time around? Do schoo
