Hello, I have been also waitlisted at UGA and I did not receive any email you mentioned. I don't know what is happening...  :( May I ask you what your subfield is? I also wonder whether you asked them first or UGA sent you a notifying email. 

Hey! I reached them out about when they might send another round of offers because I already have a standing offer. They said " At this time, we have awarded all the funding that we're likely to have this year. We will not know about additional last-minute funding until June or July." But I don't know this applies to everyone or they just said this so that I'll accept my other offer rather than waiting on UGA's list. My subfield is IR.

Hi may i ask if you got an email or checked the portal yourself? Thanks a lot!

 

Also, did anyone hear anything about MPhil in PolTheory?

Hey! I got an email and it was a very generic letter of rejection. It was sent out to me at 4am UK time which I thought was real weird.

A note for the waitlisted: there is often a ton of movement in the week or so before the decision deadline (April 15), as there are always folks who wait until the last minute to turn down offers. I know it's agonizing, but remember: nothing's set in stone until the deadline has passed.

Claiming a New School for Social Research (NSSR) acceptance. Applied for the master's program, offered full tuition in master's and PhD programs- 7 years of support. Waiting for details on CUNY offer (accepted but haven't received official offer from admissions), not totally sure what I will do. Unreal! Very happy.

Those who are admitted to CUNY MA Program, do you plan to accept the offer? How do you plan to solve the funding issue? Is it common to find tuition fee or monthly scholarship? I would appreciate any help.

Congrats! That’s amazing! How were you told? I applied to the PhD and I think they said we’d hear back on the 15th, but I’m checking my emails and portal every day... was wondering if someone reached out to you or if it was a generic email? Thanks :)

Thanks! I received an email to check the portal on Sunday. I went on expecting a rejection (since other people had claimed admission awhile back) so I was pretty surprised!! I think they're just making their way through the stack, keep your eyes peeled for an email!

Thanks for replying! Well done and congrats!! It’s great that you were offered full tuition- I think that’s pretty rare, so congrats! Did they mention a fellowship for living costs or anything?

Anyone else preparing for the PhD interviews at EUI? Luckily I've gotten a bit of information through common friends but having to present in front of a big panel makes me super nervous 😐

I applied to SAIS PhD too but no update yet. My friend said SAIS will release decisions around March 26.

I also heard of that deadline. Current students told me funding prospects is not that good at SAIS, plus they are admitting only 6 students this year, I guess.

Thank you! They didn't mention living expenses so I don't expect there's a stipend of any kind (I can apply roles in the college if I like). I'm going to speak to them more about the PhD offer (unclear on funding), but I only applied for master's, so if there's no funding the PhD I probably won't be continuing through to that there. Still lots to figure out, but plenty of time.

I declined my interview offer, but I have friends who have gone through interviews and got offers last year if you want to reach out :)

Hi there! Also currently prepping for my EUI phd interview. And, on the point of panel interviews - I don't know if you have had any yet, but in my experience zoom PhD panel interviews are far less intimidating than their real-life counterparts. If its mainly the 5 min presentation that makes you nervous, then you could definitely pin a single one of the admissions committee during your presentation to focus on and nobody would ever know 😁 And, feel free to reach out, I would be more than happy to share what I have heard about the interview - particularly so if you are not applying for the same national funding body haha 😅 (small nordic country)
