  1. Hi guys, I am currently on a waitlist for a spot in CS PhD program, and I am very worried because I already had 7th rejection yesterday :(((( Anyone receiving the offer from this school and not needing it please rejects it for me. If you know a friend applying to this university, tell him or her this information. Thanks guys, I'll be forever in your debt.
  2. I finished applying to grad schools at the end of December with due dates of applications being on January 15th, February 1st, and February 15th. I have heard back from two of the three schools I applied to. However, I'm starting to get extremely nervous because the last school I haven't heard from is my alma mater and I know that several others have already heard back and been accepted. I have not received ANYTHING. And I mean anything, no wait list letter, no rejection, and no acceptance. I'm starting to really get concerned because since others have heard back, does that mean that I did not get in? But if I didn't get in, why wouldn't they just send me the email saying no. I've tried to think about this as logically as I can like maybe they sent out letters in alphabetical order but the people I asked ALL have last names starting with letters after mine in the alphabet.. I was thinking maybe they accepted the grad scholars first, but I know for a fact that one kid from my alma mater who got accepted DID NOT apply for the grad scholars and he received an acceptance. I'm just freaking out because this was my back-up plan but I didn't think I wouldn't have been able to get into my back-up plan!?? Should I just consider no news good news???
  3. Has anyone been waitlisted to this particular program(CSUN Pre-SLP program) ? I just saw my admission letter and it seems that it was highly competitive this year and that the school had to waitlist many qualified individuals. So, I guess I don't feel too bad??? ://// I am ranked #8 on the waiting list. Should I apply again next year? Thanks in advance.
  4. Hey ya'll, I have been waitlisted to Loyola Maryland and was told that I was on the first tier within the three tiers. Today I received an email saying that they accepted the first group of people off of the waitlist and I was not one of them. Has this happened to anyone else OR Does anyone else know how many people have been waitlisted from Loyola Maryland SLP School?

    Low GPA, Super Stressed Out

    Hi! So the past few months for me have filled with endless stress and self doubt about applying to grad school and my future in general. I only applied to two schools because I didn't have much confidence that I would get in anywhere and didn't want to waste the money just to be rejected. I got rejected from University of Rhode Island and am currently waitlisted at LIU Post, which I'm actually shocked I even got waitlisted to be completely honest. As hopeful as I am that I'll get excepted, I know I need to be realistic. I have a 3.3 GPA, but with the way my grades are looking this semester, it's probably going to go down to a 3.2. I wanted to see if I could retake some classes in the summer to raise my GPA but my college doesn't let you retake classes to be factored into your GPA after you graduated. However, I could retake them as a nonmatriculated student, but it would make no difference in my GPA. Would grad schools even care if I did this? I was thinking about retaking anatomy because I got a C and I'm especially nervous about that being a CSD course, but I don't want to spend $1000 retaking it for grad schools not to even care. Anyway, does anyone know any ways I could increase my chances of getting accepted, or am I doomed because of my GPA? Am I even being realistic applying with a 3.2/3.3? And does anyone know of any backup plans/other career options with a bachelor's and CSD? I'm sorry this is so long, I'm so beyond stressed and none of my family or friends understand because to them, "I do have good grades". Thank you so much!!

    Low GPA/any advice?

    Hi! So i have been super stressed during this whole application process. I only applied to 2 schools because i didn’t have much confidence i would get accepted anywhere and i didn’t want to spend a ton of money just to get rejected. I got rejected from one school and waitlisted at LIU Post. Even though I’m trying to stay hopeful about Post, i know my chances are pretty slim. I have a 3.3 GPA but the way my grades are this semester it’s probably going to be around a 3.2? Am i even being realistic about applying? My GRE scores, recs, and essay are all pretty average so i don’t even really have that going for me. I wanted to retake some classes in the summer to try and boost my GPA, but my school does not allow you to retake classes for a higher grade once you’ve graduated. However, i could take them as a nonmatriculated student, but the grade would not replace my old one. Is it even worth it to do this? I was thinking of retaking anatomy because i got a C and I’m nervous because it’s a CSD course, but if grad schools wouldn’t even care then I’m not going to waste the money. Does anyone have any advice on ways to stand out more or any kind of back up plan? I’m so stressed that I’m not even excited about graduating. None of my family or friends understand because to them “i have good grades” (for any other major i would!) any advice is appreciated! And if you actually read this whole thing, thank you so much!

    Results in March?

    Hello, I was wondering if anybody has some information on a phenomena I have been experiencing in the application process. After interviewing at several schools and being waitlisted, more than one school has told me that I can expect an answer on admission in mid-March. I was wondering if this was just coincidental or if there is significance to the mid-March time? Given that the schools are publicly funded, I believed that students had until April 15 to give an admission decision if given an offer. Could it be that these schools are waiting for funding to take an additional student (me)? Or is there some other decision deadline in mid-March that they could have in place? Please let me know your thoughts!
  8. 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 offer when somebody turns theirs down), so I'm trying to become more informed so as to stress out less. Also if anyone has any clue as to how many people from the wait list usually receive and admissions offer for this program, that would also be appreciated! Thanks!

    Waitlist odds

    I was wondering if anyone had any insight into the inner-workings of waitlists. I know it's different for each year and each school/program but any feedback is appreciated! For reference I've been waitlisted for Columbia's SIPA Environmental Science and Policy MPA. I've been on the waitlist since the beginning of January so I've had a lot of time to sit and think! A couple of things I have questions about are: If a program has a target cohort size of say 70, will they send acceptances to more (like 100) people and then additionally place more on the waitlist in anticipation of people declining offers? Meaning that even if some people decline they will still not move to the waitlist unless more than a certain number turn down their offers? Also, does the fact that I applied/was waitlisted earlier mean I might be higher up on the waitlist than someone who did so later? The message I received on my application portal said that the waitlist was unranked, but after corresponding with someone, I have reason to believe that one can be "bumped up" on the list. Thanks, I know I'm probably overthinking it, but any comments or insights would be great!

    Question about waitlisting

    (I posted this in another area of the forum but I think people rarely go into the section of the forum, so I’m posting it here instead. Sorry!) I’m posting this because I haven’t been able to find a thread on being waitlisted (but if you know one, please share the link!) so my apologies if it’s an annoying question! I was recently waitlisted by my top choice and they stated that if an interview slot opened, they would notify me. Does THAT happen often? I’ve heard of waitlisting post-interview but not before. I would think everyone who applied would accept the interview invite and that the committee would select from that group being they take so few anyway...so basically I read the letter and counted it as a passive rejection. I am debating on emailing them, restating my interest and thanking them (as it’s suggested you do) but I’m feeling a tad pessimistic about my chances. What should I do?? Should I feel optimistic about this???

    Question about being Waitlisted

    I’m only posting this because I haven’t been able to find a thread on bein waitlisted (but if you know one, please share the link!) so my apologies if it’s an annoying question!

  12. Hello all! So, I have recently been waitlisted by BU for their sociology program for Fall 2017. I received an email from the graduate school saying that while all positions for the new cohort have been filled, they would keep me on the waitlist in case the situation changes. My question is, what are the chances of getting off the waitlist (I am currently the #1 on the waitlist), when they have said all the positions have been filled? And does this mean that everyone has accepted the offer for Fall 2017 and therefore cannot back out? Also, is it possible for people to back out after they have accepted the offer? I am nervously waiting till April 15, hanging on to the hope that someone accepts an offer elsewhere and I get in, as it is my top choice. Thanks for all your input!
  13. Hey guys, I am new to the forum! I just have a question that has been bugging me, I would really appreciate some feedback or suggestion regarding my situation. So yesterday, I received a notification from UW Comm Lead department that I got into their waitlist. I replied to that email, reaffirming my interest in the program as well as attaching an updated resume. The advisor replied to my email today, saying she really appreciate that I continue to show my reaffirm interest for the program and that she partly want to see who from those in the waitlist are genuinely interested. She also mentions that she welcome additional recommendation letter or a revised materials. I was thinking of getting my current supervisor to write me one, do you think it is a good idea? Should I re-do my personal statement or video application? I'm just really anxious. Do you think I get a high chance of getting accepted? This is the only graduate program I applied to and I really want to get in. Thanks!
  14. Hi Everyone, I've received an email from a prof. in Columbia saying they were impressed with my credentials but since they cannot over commit, they are putting me on a "(short) waiting list" and I will be notified by April 15. My questions are: 1. Is there anyone else who was or you know of that was put on a waiting list and accepted? 2. What is the typical size of a waiting list? He says in parenthesis that it was short. 3. If I am accepted will I get funding? Is this a question I have to discuss at this phase or wait until after a notification? 4. What do I do now to increase my chances of acceptance? Thank you 0
  15. I got into my second choice and they gave me a great package. I think I am getting accepted into my first choice program, but waitlisted for funding and won't find out until April 15th. My second choice wants a decision on the TA-ship by March 15th (next week!!!) What do I do???? Any advice is welcome. Trying not to make myself sick over this.

    Waiting Purgatory - MFT Program

    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 are also in purgatory like me. To those who applied to Chapman's MFT program, have any of you gotten out of the waitlist and accepted into the program? Also, is there anything else I can do or do I just wait and see if someone rejects the school's offer? Also, any advice for someone who's riding on a rollercoaster full of anxiety?
  17. Your grades may be low but it is not impossible. I did it and so can you. Of course your chances are low, of course it is hard but I had the lowest stats you could possibly imagine and now I am a first year PT student. This thread is to inspire applicants to chase their dream of becoming Physical Therapist no matter what!
  18. As April. 15th approaches I am really curious to see who gets admitted off the waitlist! Would you please share any experiences you've had with the waitlist, if you got off and if you already had accepted another offer. There isn't much information out there on it, everyone knows the date is coming up but we are all scrambling and hoping for dear life! I am waitlisted to I think, 3 schools, haven't heard back from UDC. I am assuming ill have some news come next week. So close...yet so far! *shrieks
  19. Has anyone called and easily received an answer or is this information they do not release? Thanks!
  20. Has anyone who applied for MAPSS on the April 30th deadline received an application decision yet? If so, can you tell me when? Thanks!
  21. ANYONE HEAR FROM CALIFORNIA STATE LONG BEACH Master of Arts in Psychological Research or MAPR???? This is the last school that I am waiting for a decision. Any information will be helpful. Thank you
  22. 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 waiting, hang in there! I wanted to share some information about my program that I wish I had known when I was applying, and when I was making my decision. To be completely fair, here is a brief overview of the type of person that I think would be a good fit for the York MSW program: - You are very interested in critical social work theories, including Marxism, critical race theory, feminism, queer theory, critical disability studies, etc. (*York does not yet have a strong Indigenous component to the program. UVic is excellent at this if that's what you're looking for. Arguably we should all be looking for this, but I digress.) - You did a BSW that heavily focussed on clinical skills OR somehow have clinical skills already. In this instance, I actually think York would be a really good complement to your existing skills. - You want to do macro or meso level social work practice, such as: community work, grassroots activism/organizing, research, group work, programming. York is a good choice for this as it focuses on critical social work practice, which translates well into macro/meso social work practice. - You want to do a PhD and are very interested in theory and want to write a major research paper. U of T limits the number of students who can do a thesis, so York would be a good choice for you as every student needs to write a practice-based research paper (same as a major research paper; note that a PRP is shorter than a Master's thesis) and this is a requirement for many PhD programs. Unfortunately for me, I don't fall into any of these categories and I have been disappointed with the program. I'm writing this in the hopes that you will have a bit more information than I did when making an admissions decision. There are a total of 20 students in my cohort/class, and we have had many extensive discussions as a group about our shared frustration and disappointment with the curriculum, faculty, and department. I would estimate that: 3-4 students have seriously considered dropping out or transferring (including me), 10-12 actively and vocally dislike/resent/are disappointed with the program, and 5-6 aren't happy or satisfied but are committed to just getting it over with. There isn't a single person in my cohort that has expressed basic satisfaction - let alone enthusiasm - for any aspect of the program, aside from the funding package (more on that later). There were some 'rumours' that went around the forum during my application year that I can now comment on based on my own experience. York does not have established relationships with key clinical practicum agencies in the GTA. York has good relationships with a lot of agencies that would interest you if you're interested in community work, policy, research, or activism/organizing. U of T has exclusivity agreements with many clinical agencies, meaning that the agency agrees to only take on U of T students. These include many hospitals or clinical facilities such as Hincks-Dellcrest, CAMH, and the University Hospital Network. Aside from these exclusivity agreements, many clinical/counselling agencies will not accept placement applications from York students. There ARE some exceptions to this rule, but everyone at York who wants to go into clinical/counselling work then has to compete against each other (and students from other schools) to get those limited placement positions. Generally speaking it is true that U of T has a lockdown on key clinical placement sites. If you have ANY interest in doing clinical work (counselling, working in a hospital, crisis work, trauma work, individual/family/couples/group therapy), and you are seriously considering attending another program, go there instead of York. This is the bottom line. Secondly, even if you feel optimistic about securing one of the few clinical placements available, you should know that York does not teach any clinical or practical skills. I knew this when I was applying, but I didn't REALLY understand it. Examples of skills or clinical topics that you will not learn at York include: developing a therapeutic alliance (this term is never used at York), building trust and rapport, phases or stages of a counselling relationship, communication skills (open-ended questions, active listening, reframing, summarizing), assessment skills, documentation skills, treatment planning, crisis intervention, counselling theories, counselling methods, ANYTHING related to mental health conditions (signs, symptoms, therapies).... you get it. There is one class on group facilitation and one class on narrative therapy (the only counselling course); both are electives. This is because York's MSW programs draw on a wholly different knowledge base than U of T, or other clinical programs. Critical social work draws on critical social theories, like Marxism, feminism, critical race theory, queer theory, critical disability studies, etc. U of T's social work program primarily draws on psychology, the medical model, and psychotherapy as a knowledge base. This is why York's mission statement and admissions process emphasis anti-oppression and social justice, and U of T's mission statement and admissions process emphasize research, "clinical" practice, and evidence-based treatment. To illustrate this difference, U of T offers classes on Social Work Practice in Mental Health, Social Work Practice with Individuals and Families, Advanced Social Work Practice in Mental Health, and electives related to trauma, counselling theories, cyber-counselling, child and adolescent trauma.... etc. York offers classes called Critical Perspectives in Mental Health and Critical Social Work Theories and Practice Skills. In the latter, you will learn about how and why various therapies (e.g. CBT, solution-focussed, strengths approach) are inherently problematic. You will not learn how to practice any of these therapies, OR even learn how they are done. You will also not learn how to practice any alternative treatments (in fact, you would never ever say 'treatment' at York). York focuses on critical and structural social work, so their critique of CBT, for example, would be that CBT individualizes a person's symptoms (let's say anxiety) instead of looking at the structural and contextual factors (e.g. the person who feels anxious is a racialized person living in poverty and on the brink of homelessness, so York might say that instead of medication and CBT, we should advocate for affordable housing and a guaranteed annual income). This is IMPORTANT and I have valued this, but I am not better prepared to work with someone with anxiety (meaning I still have no clue what to do). (This is why I imagine that a clinical BSW + a York MSW could be a good combination). So, many of us are stuck and eager to wrap up the program. Some students are doing external training - which, by the way, is incredibly expensive (a one day workshop ranges from $300-$500 and a certificate course in CBT could be $2000). Don't bother thinking, "Oh I'll just take electives at U of T", because there is only a very, very, very miniscule chance that you will be allowed to do so. One redeeming aspect of the York MSW program is its generous funding package. If finances are an issue for you, then it's worth seriously considering attending York as the funding packages are generous. In the 2-year program everyone gets a $15,000 package ($9,000 in Year 1 through a graduate assistantship (which requires 5 hours work/week) and other money, and $6000 in Year 2 through a research assistantship which doesn't require any work). If you get a York Graduate Scholarship then you get $6000 on top of this package. You will get all of this information in your acceptance letter. York also has very low tuition at roughly $1800 per semester. By comparison, the tuition at U of T is TREMENDOUSLY higher and they don't offer any funding packages. ** This is not inconsequential and despite everything else I've said, the money makes a huge difference ** /end rant BEST OF LUCK to all of you. I know this is a stressful time -- hang in there! I hope you all end up at a school that is a good fit for you personally and professionally.
  23. Hi everyone, I though it would be useful if there was some centralized location where people on various waitlists could come to find out if anyone has rejected offers for the schools they are waiting on. I'm not on any waitlists, but I can sympathize with those who are stuck in limbo. I don't expect anyone to think of this as a one-for-one trade-off, but I hope that even the smallest amount of information might provide a modicum of hope. So I thought that anyone who has rejected an offer might post it here with a little bit of info. I hope this might prove somewhat useful to anyone who is facing down the bleak inhumanity that is the waitlist. I was thinking we should probably post: School Name Sub field Funded/not funded Type of funding (fellowship or assistantship or combination) If anyone can think of anything else to add, feel free. Here is what I have so far: Washington University in St. Louis Comparative Funded (Fellowship/ assitantship) I plan on rejecting two more in the coming week: UC Davis Comparative Funded (assistantship) SUNY-Binghamton Comparative Funded I hope this info helps!
  24. After months of waiting to hear back from Penn Design yesterday was the big day!! Hooo RAYYYY .. Yeah no biggie ..

    The waitlist thread

    How many others are suffering from waitlist syndrome? Being that so-so applicant that isn't good enough to offer admittance off the bat, but not terrible enough to be rejected? I'm waitlisted at 3 universities so far. Big, big sigh.
