Political Science - Fall 2011 Cycle


Recommended Posts

Not that I'm terribly optimistic about it, but has anybody been in touch with Notre Dame?

I've emailed them (yeah, I know, not much hope of a response there), but no reply.

I've been in touch with Notre Dame off and on a bit - I talked to them today, to let them know that I made it into my backup school (I'm on the Wait List right now). I was told that they hoped to have more information about the Constitutionalism, Law, and Politics subfield by the end of next week. So maybe more information is coming soon for you!

Some of you have held out hope for applying again next year. I wouldn't rule it out, but for your application to do much better, something major has to change. For instance, you did a great senior t

Harvard, Yale, Princeton all within 45 minutes. no idea where to go! I promise its true. Found out a few hours ago... posting here wasn't the first thing I did after finding out! Harvard is unoffici

Funny story. While a student in the department I attended before transferring here, I took a class with a guy at a top five department that I really wanted to go to. I didn't go to that school at th

I emailed Notre Dame on Monday, and actually got a response today. It was a very nice email telling me that I was still in the running. Apparently, they're doing admissions and rejections on a rolling basis. They've sent out some offers, and a lot of rejections. There are only a few spots left, though, so I don't fancy my chances. Still, it's nice to know I made it this far in the process.

Hey guys,

Just completing my masters at Boston College. On the top of the waitlist for the American politics subfield here (whoever you are, REJECT PLEASE). Otherwise, rejected at John Hopkins, WUSTL, Brandeis.

Still waiting on: UConn, University of Houston, Northeastern, UMass @ Amherst.

Legitimate chance that I won't get in anywhere, and will be back to doing the same job I had before, only with a $50,000 masters. Joy.

Just a general question: is it usually a bad sign when someone is still waiting on a decision awhile after some have already gone out? I'm talking 1-2 weeks difference here (and yes I called, they just told me that my application is still being looked at and it should be soon).

I'm on the same boat at my wait listed places. Although, in my case, the decisions went out over a month ago and i hear more are yet to be made.

Hmm. I see you were accepted at FIU, which is actually the one I'm waiting on.

Their cycle runs late and in all probabilities, going by previous years, they haven't given out all offers yet.

Well, it's finally April, when I should hear from my schools. Almost two full months without information is killing me. I'm not even excited anymore. Seriously, if I get in it'll be met with a resounding "meh". I guess that's how they let you down easy, make you wait so long!

I just hope I hear Monday. <_<

Officially rejected by Georgetown...took them long enough to mail me a decision

Got mine, too. This was a ridiculous wait for a 'no'.

Also, totally expected, but man, that's twice the school I've wanted to attend since I was 10 has turned me down. :rolleyes:

Applied to 3 schools and received 2 rejections ages ago. Finally, Purdue came through in the clutch today with an acceptance and I'll be enrolling there in the fall. I know it isn't an Ivy, but it was always the best option for my family, so I am feeling very blessed today. Thanks to everyone on the board for the camaraderie and support over these last few months. Good luck to all of you in your endeavors, academic and otherwise!

Yes, congratulations! I don't know anything about Purdue's political science, but I'm a huge space geek, and I identify Purdue with Neil Armstrong, so that alone makes it awesome.

I am unbelievably happy to be done with the admissions process (especially the waiting) and I am super excited to start at a great Department in the Fall, but it still makes me a little sad to see that the Fall 2011 people are slowly being replaced by people that are just starting in their own admissions cycle. I am sure there's something wrong with me.

Any way, it has been a pleasure. Good luck to all of you.

Thanks, adela_heartless and wtncffts! I couldn't handle the g-forces of space travel, so I'll have to settle for analyzing public policy at ground level. At least until hoverboards become commercially available.

Best of luck to both of you!
