I just got this email from the department:

In reviewing some of the applications, the Admissions Committee decided that some applications would work best for the Masters, rather than for the Doctoral, Program.  if you have been notified that you have been accepted into the Masters Program, then, yes, you have been considered for and accepted to matriculate into that Program only.

So, they admitted me for the MA instead of the PhD. Very weird because I applied for the PhD specifically! I hope you get off the waitlist for the PhD! 

That's very odd! I have never heard or seen something like that. And usually, when you apply for a PhD, your proposal isn't set in stone, so it's normal that in the course of your degree, the scope of your topic evolves...

So my portal status for York GWF studies changed to admitted but no email/notification has come my way with any information and it states basically everywhere they will contact me via email when a decision is made. Do I wait for a few days and see what happens or email them to ask about funding information?

Excited to get admitted though!

Hi all! Long time lurker— so no one has heard from Rutgers WGS yet (phd a/r)? I’m anxious to hear but didn’t get an interview request so not sure if im holding false hope!

Interviews and even waitlist details have been updated on the board. Someone on this forum has reported having got an admit into the MA program while they applied for the PhD. I haven't heard a peep and the portal resolutely says 'No decision'. But I am guessing it is a reject if I haven't heard anything till now! Sorry for giving you less than positive news.

I didn't get into ASU's phd program, only got an autogenerated response. :( Waiting to hear back from the department for feedback, but still hoping to hear postiively from UMass's Social Justice Education program!

I was rejected from Rutgers so if you haven't heard anything yet it might be a sign you are still being considered.

Toronto said they emailed phd offers out on march 1st. 

hey, did you email them to ask? i recently reached out because i have to make a decision about a different program, and was told that i would hear back late march/early april. so confusing, but maybe the grad admin just didn't tell me i didn't get in...my application online still says under review.

Yes I emailed them. they didnt say I was rejected, but that they sent offers out. so if people decline, they will start asking the rest of us. is how I understand it.

Has anyone heard back from Indiana University Bloomington’s Gender Studies program?? I saw someone on here got an offer in early Feb but I haven’t seen anything from anyone else and I haven’t heard from the program at all. Good luck, all!

Yes! Definitely thinking about next time...thankfully I got into a funded MA program, but I’m seriously reconsidering whether I should apply to WGSS programs next time. Perhaps a traditional discipline might be a better choice in terms of getting accepted, funding, and placement.
