Hi all! I've been looking for a thread relating to gender/women's studies phd program applications and haven't found any for 2021's application cycle. I'm sure this week and the next few weeks will be

Hi everyone! It's so great to see all the positive energy! I am so on edge waiting around to hear back from schools. In the meantime, what kind of stuff does everyone want to research, if y'all d

Hello, did you have an update on your portal? I am still showing in review today. 

Yes there is an update on my portal with the decision. You can contact Dr. Heather Switzer and ask her about admission decisions. Her email should be on the gender studies page if I remember correctly. I apologize, I don’t have it on hand at the moment.

I also applied to ASU and checked my portal but it is still "under review". Can anyone here confirm acceptances or rejections from their portal check? I'm still surprised many of us have not heard back from ASU.

I received a response from one of the professors saying they expect notifications to go out soon.

Hi i was admitted to Rutgers WGSS on Feb 9th- i was a wgs major in undergrad too, but I worry about the academic market (as anyone else might). I worry that i need a traditional discipline to make me an attractive PhD candidate. i applied to mostly anthro programs and then Rutgers WGSS. I'm accepting the offer, but I'm also wondering if anyone else is worried about interdisciplinary placement. Why did you guys choose WGSS over a discipline I guess? i'm curious.

Hi, I'm the person who got in (with interview) and reported it. I think most decisions are out, including waitlist. I say this because the graduate director told me that they had a good selection of admitted students this year so I assume they already know who they are and have been notified and also some people on the waitlist have been notified too. Sorry :( . It's my only yes so far (waiting on Emory and Rutgers, which I would probably pick over Berkeley).

Congrats on Berkeley!! I'm kind of curious why you said you would choose Rutgers over Berkeley

hi, so I would choose those over Berkeley because I don’t like the west coast lmao and also because I felt like WGSS would be a better fit for me than Rhetoric. however, I just got rejected from Emory and will probably not get admitted to Rutgers off the waitlist so this decision will likely be made for me (though I also got admitted to Tufts English and waitlisted at Yale Philosophy). in the past few weeks though I’ve realized that Rhetoric is a really good fit for me because it’s even more interdisciplinary that WGSS which fits my project better. also my BF got admitted to San Francisco State so that’s a plus since he’s for sure coming with me. Rutgers WGSS is a really good program so you shouldn’t worry too much about getting a job as long as you do well/get publications etc! being in an interdisciplinary field does make things harder but if you wanted job security above all else I’m sure you wouldn’t be applying to grad school n.n    also we really don’t know what the market will look like in 6-8 years. maybe we will live under feminist authoritarianism and they’ll need WGSS phds to run shit etc. maybe a far right administration will dissolve all gender studies programs as has happened in other countries! I’m not worried about placement because I don’t want to go into academia (I want to be a librarian) I’m just trying to have a good time and have health insurance

Word. Thank you for that! Yeah Rhetoric is awesome for post/colonial studies too + you'll get to think with Judith Butler & enjoy the sun!

Fellow ASU applicants- Is your portal still listing "In Review"? I know one said that it had been updated, but any movement for anyone else? It's been a week since I reached out to a professor, so just wanted to check-in!

They just responded to my email and said hopefully this week!
