Did any of the comp lit peeps on here apply to UCLA? Trawling back through the results page, it looks like they've posted results around the last week of Jan in the past - but last year people still hadn't heard anything by mid-April! Not sure if I should be refreshing their portal every 5 mins, or putting them out of my mind for another three months...anyone in the same boat?

yes but with Berkeley English because they have sent out results as early as the 30th or as late as mid feb...

Also how do people check the status of their application? Mine all say "submitted," even though I know at least one committee must have met already. Is there another place to check?

Also, a related query: does anyone know if there are still funded Masters programs accepting applications??

Yes, Bucknell and the University of Vermont are accepting applicants until February 1st. Both are good, fully funded programs. Someone else may be able to weigh in with more.

Could any one help me? I am highly stressed. I have applied for a PhD in January 3rd deadline, but have not received any email regarding Gate and Trust scholarships and interview. Does anyone when the interview invitations will be emailed? Or have the emails already sent to people who have been selected for an interview?

i received some really nice words from one of my letter writers today basically reminding me that pretty much everyone in academia experiences rejection--multiple forms of rejection--at pretty much every step. from PhD programs, from fellowships, from postdoc positions, from jobs even after a grueling interview process, from journals, from publishers. it may not all feel as horrible as what we feel right now, but certainly we will be rejected in some form again even if we believe in ourselves and believe in our research. it's all about persistence, so don't let the rejection kill your ambition :)

Last year UCLA switched systems midway through the cycle and extended the deadline as a result so everything took longer.

I finished applying to Bucknell last week. They do require that you send a hard copy of your transcript from your institution. However, there would be no harm in emailing them and asking if they would accept it arriving after the deadline. They do have a very simple application process aside from that. No login portal, you just fill out an online form and recommenders send their letters directly via email (only two required).

Thanks so much, that's really helpful to know! Perpetual refreshing it is then, I guess....is it March yet?

side note: the northern midwest is in a polar vortex right now, and everything's shut down...this *could * cause a latency with notifications

Anyone else waiting on Boston College? Expected to hear back by now and dunno if nothing is because there have been no news or because it's such a small cohort that no one accepted is on here.

I'm still waiting to hear from them, too.

looks like UT Austin rejections might be rolling through? keep your heads up!

Yep, I just heard I’m out. Not surprised after all the acceptances yesterday. Not too down about it though, actually just relieved to know for sure on something!
