  1. Hi there! Didn't see a thread for HKS waitlist this year, starting one right here. I got waitlisted for MPP. I was expecting a rejection, so this is a pleasant surprise. I didn't know I was this close. Maybe I should reapply next year if I don't get in?
  2. Hello Friends! Anybody else need a support group for being a waitlister? I am currently waitlisted for the acting MFA at Brown. Anybody else know if they are on a waitlist? How is the...waiting...going? I feel #manic
  3. Hey all, I have just been informed that I am waitlisted for the SLHS grad program for San Francisco State and have been denied from all other programs I applied to in California. Before I started my application process I met up with one of my old professors from San Jose State to ask for a rec. letter. They informed me to look at less popular programs to increase my chances in getting into grad school. Which I now regret not doing. I have tons of experience working in special education (4 years to be specific), have worked in ABA therapy as well. My gpa is not the best (3.41) and I need to definitely improve my GRE scores. Though, I really don't feel I'm that much of a horrible candidate. Anywho... My question is, has anyone ever been placed on a waitlist for a program and have reapplied the following year and have not gotten in to the same program they were waitlisted. What are my chances if I reapply for SFSU next year? Also, what out of state programs should I apply to that won't break the bank?
  4. Anyone else like me got waitlisted by Moody college of communication UT austin? It's said the students who get the answer would give the answer before Apr. 1st. But didn't get any notifications since then. I also got the offer from Rutgers but this one is a dream program.... Waiting is consuming everybody knows that :(((
  5. I've had an unusual experience regarding my application to Boston University for their chemistry PhD program. I did not receive any information about the status of my application till mid February, when a PI of my interest contacted me asking for a Skype interview. They never followed up on my reply though, even after a reminder, and so I never had that Skype interview. Then at the end of February I got an email from the grad office saying I was on a small waitlist, stating that they could only make a limited number of initial offers and that they didn't have space for me in that initial round, hence the waitlist. I responded to that waitlist email basically saying thank you and that I look forward to the result. So my three questions: 1) Is it worrying that the PI never had the Skype call? 1) Is the waitlist email a standard boilerplate response? 2) What would my chances be of getting through the waitlist? BU is very high up on my priority list of universities. 3) Is there anything else I should do, or just wait till the 15 April deadline and see what happens? Btw, I'm an international student, if that would be of any relevance.
  6. Hi friends. Hope everyone is eating some chocolate and practicing some death yoga to destress during the coronavirus chaos! I've searched for over an hour on the forums trying to find a post I saw much earlier on in this year's app cycle (back in November, I want to say) with a sample email somebody had whipped up for someone else looking to decline their spot on a waitlist. I'm going to be contacting two of my waitlist schools soon to ask to be taken off the waitlist (out of courtesy to those students who may also be on the list). Can anyone remember where that sample language was for how to word this respectfully, or offer any advice on wording? Thanks in advance for any help!
  7. I am on the waitlist for the VGT track at Mayo Clinic. Has anyone else been waitlisted for this program? Did they indicate your position on the waitlist or chances of being accepted?

    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. I only need one of course...but it's been radio silence. So I haven't received emails about interviews but I also haven't received emails about rejections....anyone know what this means or have any insight to share?
  9. Hi! So last February of 2019 I was waitlisted to Marymount University's forensic and legal psychology master's program! I was told I was in the top third out of 40-50 people. I have been told by one person that had applied to this program that the year previous to that she was waitlisted and that for 2019 she got admitted. Do you think the chances would be that good for me as well? I am definitely re applying this year and I just hope the same outcome goes for me, where I was waitlisted last year and then admitted this year. For this particular program, they say they get around 200 applicants and accept about 95 students. Thoughts? Thank you guys!
  10. Saw that @hopefulSLP2be7 started a thread like this last year for those “who are playing the waiting game... Please post here if you are DECLINING your acceptance OR waitlist position at a school. This will HELP people get a better idea of their situation! Thanks to everyone who participates! Congrats to all the SLPs to be!”
  11. Hi everyone! I know that there are people that have already hear back from SJSU's SLP Master's program, but for us that haven't... Does anyone know what's going on? Are they still sending out acceptances or is their cohort already full? If you have any information, please share
  12. I know we are all here playing the waiting game, we've been playing since the moment we sent in all those apps. There is a reason they call this a process and for that reason I waited before even applying. Now I am losing it! For everyone who is still waiting? Please share with me the ways you manage to distract yourself. I know its the weekend and I won't hear from the school till at least Monday yet I still can't help but refresh my email. All of my eggs are in one basket now I was rejected from everywhere I applied except waitlisted at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Everything is riding on this and I am filled with anxiety. The not knowing is truly killing me. Misery loves company, so if you're waiting and waiting please vent let us wait together and maybe it won't be so lonely
  13. I noticed there's usually one WAITLIST thread every year. This is where you can post about schools that you are waiting to hear back from. Consequently, if you are holding multiple offers and would like to get opinions, you can post here as well!
  14. Hi all, I noticed that there is no waitlist thread for 2019 applications. Let's share all together! Currently, I am waitlisted from two programs. Fingers crossed?
  15. I think this board has worked out well in previous years and thought there might be some benefit in creating a space where (1) people can post if they are declining an offer, and (2) where people can post where they are wait-listed. Sure, there is no guarantee the wait-listed person will get the spot, but it's still nice to know, right? In the end, we can only take up one offer but it's possible that you were accepted at another person's dream school and waitlisted at your own and vice versa.
  16. I'm waitlisted at my top choice and am kind of freaking out. I know waitlisting experiences vary so much across year and program, and realistically the chances of being extended an offer are slim since this program is amazing but I'd love to hear folks' experiences/impressions of being wait-listed... What was it like and when did you finally hear back (with or without an offer)? How do you keep your spirits up? Did you re-apply to the same program? 😭 *sobbing intensifies*
  17. Hi everyone, I'm a senior student from China and I received my decision letter that I'm on the waitlist of Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Boston University in Jan. Do you know are there any chances for me to be admitted? Is there anyone you know who was put on the waitlist and then be admitted? I really hope I could go there! Thank you!
  18. Hey guys, I am on the waitlist of SVA MFA Design. Do you guys know the chances of getting in? Although I got admitted into Pratt but I really like the program at SVA and still want to wait till April 15th. Fingers crossed!
  19. 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!
  20. Anyone waiting for the admission results of the Physics and Astronomy programs of the University of Calgary? Are you already admitted or rejected? I don't want to bother my prospective professor or the administrative coordinator (Ms. Evans) by emailing them. I would appreciate it if we can share our information about this program.
  21. Hey y'all, Since most of you have gotten your decisions back by now I figured i'd start this thread. Basically it's for people to say where they are turning down, that way those of us still on waitlists will have a better idea about when/if we should be hearing from schools. ALSO, this thread is NOT meant to be a place to harass or attack people with multiple offers on the table who are still deciding. This is obviously a huge decision and some people do need to take more time than others, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
  22. So the schools that I have heard back from so far have all been waitlists. Does anyone know if it’s actually possible to get into a grad program from a waitlist?! Obviously every school is different, but it is just very stressful knowing you may not get in. The schools I have replied to basically said they won’t give out any information about ranking/how many people were waitlisted. Anyone else in this same boat? Have any positive thoughts?!
  23. Hey guys! For those of you waitlisted, how are you feeling as the 15th gets closer? I’ve been rejected and waitlisted everywhere so I’m feeling very anxious about the 15th. I know I’m not the only one! Feel free to post how you’re feeling below! Fingers crossed we get good news next week
  24. Hey Guys, Figured I'd start this thread to talk about waitlists and for those of us on them, and to just generally chat about them. I have gotten all of my decisions back and currently am on two waitlists, all of the rest either being rejections or unfunded offers. When I started this I whole thing I thought the wait would be over by spring break (a week away), boy was I wrong.
  25. Am I correct in interpreting that I've no chance unless literally most everyone else turns down their admission offer? It's a bit of a mind-wrack, because the program in question is my best bet, for financial reasons (I.e., housing and other things.)
