2019-2020 Application Thread

Recommended Posts

Someone has reported an interview from UPenn, has anyone else received an email from them or is still waiting to hear anything? Keeping my fingers crossed that I get an email soon.

That is what it looks like. In the past they've started to accept people around the 25th all the way to the 31st. 

And thanks! Lord knows i need it.

That's so soon (aka now) - has anyone heard from CU Boulder yet? It's my top pick!

I've heard that UPenn doesn't always do interviews -- it's more up to the POI/subfield.

NOPE, haven't heard anything. 

According to the results page for past years they release through their website, so i've been checking it like every hour or so.

I've been so nervous for the past week waiting on these results. I just wish they'd release me from my anxiety. 

@Dwar, are you checking through https://grad.apply.colorado.edu/apply/?

Bruh it's horrible.

At work i don't really do stuff for 90% of the day so most of my time is refreshing this and the results page. 

Dude, tell me about it. I was fine until I got my first rejection from Rice (and likely a second from UT given that I haven't heard from them yet). Now I've gone off the deep end, obsessively refreshing the results page all but sure that I will receive ten rejections lol, even though I was expecting a rejection from Rice due to poor fit. I even considered applying to lower ranked schools with deadlines in February because of my tilt. I'm likely overreacting, but I did not anticipate the awfulness of the waiting game.

Haha ya. That Feb 15 deadline for Tulane looks awfully nice right about now.

Lol, yup. I would, I just don't want to bother my letter writers again after having them submit letters to 10 schools. And plus, I don't really want to go to a school out of desperation if i'm not sold on the program, sounds like a recipe for disaster.

I've also become resentful towards London School of Economics and Political Science because of its name, haha.

Search "politic* -london" and you'll get political science and "politics" (what NYU and Princeton call their Dept) results without LSE

I feel you. I'm in that same boat. Part of me like "I would" but asking people for late letters of recommendation and going to any school out of desperation is rough. Ofc, hasn't stopped me from googling late application dates and higher acceptance rate schools

Same. I've been browsing but I keep talking myself out of it. Of course I don't won't to bother my letter writers, but I also don't want to go somewhere that will make my path to employment extremely difficult. Plus, I've only heard back from 1/10, so I might be jumping the gun. Its hard not to though.

After I wrote my post, I went back and looked at last years results and someone posted the exact same details in 2019. No one else reported interviews. Looks like this may be fake...

Has anyone heard back from UC Riverside, Irvine, Berkley, or really any UC?? Im driving myself crazy refreshing my email and the results page, waiting on the schools to notify me when i should be studying for my political theory exam tomorrow 😅 also @Dwar what program are you applying for? Im going through the exact same thing. I got rejected from rice, which I knew was inevitable due to poor fit as well, yet, the rejection threw me into complete panic mode.
