Duke just called to congratulate me on being accepted to their MDiv and offered a 50% tuition scholarship! For those wondering, Duke's admissions team is calling accepted applicants today and will send acceptance emails in the afternoon.

I'm over the moon right now!

Congrats! What a great call to receive!!!!

1) Your concerns are valid. VERY valid.  2) Echoing KungFuKenny and jellyfish7, both schools are top schools within the religious studies world so adding either on your CV will only benefit you. 

Just received an admissions offer from Candler school of Theology (Emory) with 75% tuition funding! This was the only MTS program I applied to along with 4 PhD apps. I didn’t get into any of the PhD p

I appreciate the encouragement and information provided by everybody here. To follow-up, I’ve decided to accept Yale’s offer and begin their MARc this fall. Best wishes to all still making their decis

If your friend hasn't heard back they probably will verrrry soon. I was rejected at ND this afternoon, so I imagine it's about that time. So it goes. I'll finish the application season going 3/4!

Hey thanks alot!  I will let my friend know...another friend of mine just got into the ND PhD theology program, so at least some good news for me.

Praying that Chicago hurries up and posts results EARLY march as they said, as soon as possible, because the wait is killing me. Congrats to all those who got into a program! I'm so desperate to have ONE acceptance at hand, envious of yall. 

Yes, I hope that out of pure charity all those with offers will make decisions as early as possible!

Yeah, my friend just got his rejection letter. Not even waitlisted. He was a highly qualified applicant (philosophy and theology degrees, perfect GPA, near perfect GRE, seven languages, presentations at conferences, pastoral experience, etc.) with interests in sync with the department, but there are just aren't alot of spots available this year...a big congrats to all those who got offers!  And I hope those of you with rejection letter in hand can maintain the dream even if it doesn't come true this particular year...

Damn. This is making me feel rather unworthy of ND.

Yeah, I'm mystified as to why they didn't take my friend. I don't know what else he could have done to improve his application. Maybe he was overqualified? Maybe there were several applications very similiar to his? Anyway, you should have no doubt that you have something unique that ND was looking for and you should be proud of that! :)

Hi there! Congrats on everyone who has been accepted to programs and best of luck to those still waiting! Has anyone heard about the MPhil or MSt in Philosophical theology at Oxford? I know they sent out some acceptances but there is only 3 (including PhD) reported on the forum so I was wondering if maybe there would be more. Thank you!

They may have released offers for the PhD Theology but I think they are a little more streamlined with the MPhil and MsT and release acceptances a few days before rejections, but all at the same time. I am still waiting!

Hi! I did receive an acceptance (MPhil in Theology) via email at the end of last week but just posted it on the results forum today. From my impression it seems as though they send the notices in waves, and not necessarily all on the same day, potentially depending on subfields within the faculty. Best wishes!

Hello, folks. Does anybody know whether Chicago sends an email notification about the admissions decision?

"When a decision has been made you will receive an email notifying you of a change in your application status, and asking you to log in to the application system to review it."

So I think yes

Waiting for HDS and Chicago Divinity...

 

I have lots of other work to do but the days are dragging. Can't help but check my application status 87 x a day.

 

Anyone have any advice about how to distract yourself? 😩

Hm I'm going to take a (hopeful?) wager and guess that Chicago releases results this Friday, because what I've learned from previous threads is that schools like to give out bad news on Fridays😂 but then again that's just my desperate-to-be-out-of-limbo self talking

Since I have not seen any uploads on gradcafe from Chicago,  I really hope it's not just bad news on Friday!
