Hey all! I contacted UChicago SSA's admissions team to ask for a general timeline and they're currently going through first round of interviews. Second round will be towards the end of January and the hope is to send out offers mid February-late February. I hope that helps for all applying there!

Ah! Thanks for letting us know! I was wondering if they were going to interview this year.

Hi Everyone! I applied to various PHD programs. Has anyone heard back from Boston College, Columbia, or University of Texas Austin? 

I also applied to NYU and I have not heard back yet... wondering if anyone has more info besides that one person that received an interview?

A professor from Columbia told me that there would be no interviews and that they were expecting to release decisions no earlier then late February but most likely early March

The second one is mine, sorry. I followed up because I'm curious on whether this is a formal or informal interview (request from the applicant).

Hi- Columbia Phd SW applicant here- really ONLY applied to Columbia this year and will see about casting a wider net the following year- if bad news. To think i might have to wait another month and a half is EXCRUCIATING.

Yes, I too applied. Looks like we need to wait longer than other programs from above message. I also didn't hear from anyone regarding other program results or interview such as Chicago, UW, WashU. so looks like all are taking time in reviewing applications

I received an interview from WashU (however, it was for the Phd in Psychology and not Social Work) and was invited to a final day long virtual interview in Feb. 

@KryzFerr I feel you 100%! The waiting is playing with my nerves haha.

Hi ArchieJones, will the interview be conducted by the target Prof you indicated in your application or by admission committee? Also, I saw one post in the Gradecafe results too, is that you? I applied too, but haven't heard anything yet

Hi! I was contacted by my POI and I haven't posted on the results page yet.

I'm sure you'll hear something soon - good luck!
