CUNY

Hi all,

Saw two accepts via postal service on the results search and nothing else- back in the middle of February. Has anyone heard anything else? If so, what and how?

Information greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

They made their first round acceptance on Jan 22, so I guess now is maybe the second round. Also, as I know, at least two admits have gave up the offer from CUNY and have written to the department to let them know. Good luck!

Toni,

Many thanks for your reply. May I ask, do you know how they extend offers? Do you know if they have sent out rejections yet?

Well, I don't really know that much, but here's another thing. The department asked the Jan 22 admits to inform them by March 1 if they were not attending in fall. So I think the second round has just started very lately!

There was a visit day in February, I believe on the weekend of the 13th. My feeling is that all accepted applicants were notified by then.

You may want to check your spam folder-- my email was in there and I know it landed in there for a number of other applicants as well. You can also try giving Rati Kashyap a call if your spam box gets periodically empty. Then again, I did receive an actual letter a few weeks ago with my notification of acceptance and some medical forms to fill out.

To be honest, I have a lot of issues with the way CUNY handled admissions this year. You can PM me for details.

I was also accepted to the Soci PhD program at CUNY. I have not heard anything about possible funding from the Graduate Center though. And i have difficulty getting any information on this from either the Soci dept or the financial aid office. I was wondering if youd heard anything as far as funding. Thank you!

If funding is the main thing preventing you from attending, and you feel like the program is a great fit for you, I recommend writing a compelling email to the chair of the department making your case for why the program is right for you and how you will go there if offered funding. I do not know if this will make or break your funding offer, but I don't believe it could hurt you, and I believe that there is still some money floating around available to be offered to people (from other applicants turning it down).

Best of luck!!

Does anyone have any updates on CUNY? I just found out that I am on the wait-list...However, I have to assume that by this point quite a few people have received offers from them. Any idea if I have any chance of still getting accepted? Are all the spots filled?
