I am also losing my mind over these applications. I applied to nine schools, received one rejection today and can't help but obsess over what I might have been able to do better. Should I have been in

I got accepted at Penn last year and I believe all of the people who are eventually accepted get interviewed. However, each individual POI sets up the interviews and some take more time to do it than

For everyone looking at UCLA seriously, this is a tweet about our stipends.  Actually if you're looking at any of the UCs, this website is an excellent resource to consider. The housing struggle

Has anyone heard anything from UBC or University of Pennsylvania, specifically in the archaeology subfield? I've seen UPenn socio-cultural acceptances/rejects but none other than that.

I was told by Harvard's graduate program coordinator that decisions will be posted around February 18.

hey folks! anyone hear from McGill yet? looks like interviews and offers were out by this time last cycle but I don't see anything on the results page.

also, question about u of t's process. I got my acceptance email at like 11:53pm on a Tuesday in Jan. and it said my letter of offer would be sent the following week. It hasn't come yet and the GPA confirmed that the offer specifics (ie. funding) are still being processed and will come by the 19th (still unclear if online or in post). But... I've never heard of a program that sends acceptances before offers, so I'm curious as to why. Anyone have insight on this?

I can't speak to UofT specifically, but I've found that it's relatively common. The department decides who to admit, and sends their list up to the Graduate School, who then issues the formal offers. But that can take a few weeks and POIs or Dept. directors/adcomms often send an email to informally inform you they've accepted you and possibly invite you to the admitted students' day/weekend.

Oh I missed that! Looks like interviews were announced and no admit/reject notices. I saw green in my search but that was from last year! Keeping the hope alive. Good luck to you too.

Hi, does anyone know if all uchicago and harvard admits have been contacted?

Hi! I applied to both and haven't heard from either. I think a couple of people on the forum have been contacted for interviews. I also saw that someone said that Harvard was supposed to send decisions this week. I do think all admits have probably been contacted.

Hello! I interviewed with Harvard ~3 weeks ago and I haven't heard anything yet. I really hope they haven't sent all acceptances....I don't think they typically send them all at once but who knows. Trying to hold out hope while not getting my hopes up 😕

Is anyone of the one admitted to UT Austin considering a better offer? I am waitlisted, and my POI said to me I'm at the top of the list, and while I have another offer, UT Austin fits me way better. They're doing amazing stuff in media-borders-Latin America, which are my topics. If so, just shot me a PM to talk! Please let help!

Currently waiting on hearing from Texas State University for MA anthropology. I saw one rejection on the results page, so maybe some rejections have rolled out?

Also waiting for CSU Chico MA biological anthropology. Trying not to check my email every 10 minutes, but I always do

Already heard back from MA programs from UN Reno and UNLV but nether were positive!

I saw a waitlist get posted and I know someone who got rejected a couple of days ago. Just an FYI, I have had some friends go through the forensics program there and apparently its super toxic. I guess the professors only care about the PhD students now, and the program is getting a bad rep in the field by word of mouth. If you happen to get into another program  I would highly recommend attending the other one. If its the only one you get into then just mentally prepare yourself.
