Still waiting, and didn’t hear anything. Also didn’t see any update on my application portal 

Looks like someone else got accepted to UMich American Culture, via phone call. If those two posts are indeed the only two admits so far, then there would only be about 4 or 5 spots left, based on last year's 6 total admits. So.... good luck! Keeping my phone charged up so that at the very least I will definitely not have a dead phone this weekend, which is always nice.

Congratulations! Just out of curiosity do you mean American Culture? And do you think it’s safe to assume that if you haven’t heard anything today, that reject and/or waitlist is coming? 

Yes, American Culture it is. The official letter should arrive next week, according to the DGS email I received.

Well, congrats to @ExileFromAFutureTime and the other mystery admit! 

I've been surprised at the teeny cohort sizes everywhere! I'm currently in a culture studies MA program, and my cohort (combined MA/PhD since we do coursework together) is 12, 9 of which are doctoral... 6 is so small, particularly considering Mich (and UT!) are much larger schools.

Relatedly, spoke with the director of Purdue's AMST program and he said this year's cohort is five students.

Did anyone apply to George Washington’s American Studies program? If so, have you heard anything from them? I thought they conduct interviews by this point, but no one has posted anything about it.

I was just informed by one of my professors that I was accepted to BU's American & New England Studies program! This is my first accept and I"m so ridiculously excited!!

If you're also waiting, it sounds like they have made their decisions and hopefully they'll be notifying people soon!

Congrats! The first one is the sweetest even if you end up elsewhere. Hope the next few are good news as well!

Anyone want to claim the Brown waitlist? 

That would be me! Waitlisted at Brown. I'm pleased with news, since I know its a competitive program. 

sidenote, I got the email on a Saturday. So now if you need me on the weekends, I'll be frantically refreshing my email, knowing that decisions could be sent any day of the week 😫

Congrats! Does this mean nobody got an acceptance so far? So the remainder are rejections...

Thanks! and I don't think so? 

I haven't seen anyone post an acceptance or rejection from Brown. I just assumed that they JUST reached decisions regarding their list of acceptances. So I imagine everyone else will hear decisions real soon..? 

best of luck to everyone!

I haven't really kept up with this thread because I've mainly applied to History programs, but wanted to shoot some congratulations to those of you who have gotten admits and/or waitlists!! :)

Waiting on Yale American Studies on my end, hopefully they will start releasing decisions this week. Good luck everyone!

Congrats! Also, I think all of my communication with Northwestern to this point has been weekends or weekdays after 8pm (7pm in their timezone, but still!). It does make you worry about the rest of them coming in at odd hours...
