U. Pittsburgh


Recommended Posts

Any fellow U. Pittsburgh applicants?? This is my top choice school (fantastic rhetoric program) and I have yet to hear a peep. Tried to get in touch with the program coordinator to ask when they expect to make decisions.. that was several weeks ago. Still have yet to hear anything. What about any of you guys??

One of my classmate was accepted by this program at 10th,Feb. He is also accepted by USC's program at the same day.

Hey, Jcantrone, I actually received the same notification at the end of Feb. And I found an acceptance posted a couple of days ago on the results board. I'm thinking that poster got off the list, though I'm not sure about it. But I'm sure this waiting will continue by mid-April.

thanks for the info, commtomme! always good to connect with fellow waitlisters. only we can understand each others anguish! out of curiosity, where does Pitt rank in your list of potential schools? (it's pretty near the top for me, since i'm hoping to study rhetoric pretty exclusively.) i also get the sense that it's a fairly elite program if you're into rhetoric. (always hard to compare comm programs against each other though.) good luck to us both!

It's true, I had no idea what it's like until I got waitlisted. Sure there are a couple of faculty members who have similar research interests to mine and I love to work with, but U of Pitt is not one of my top three choices, actually, I'm not into rhetoric exclusively. The problem is I also got waitlisted at two other programs which are my top choices. But you're right, Pitt has a fantastic rhetoric program. Good luck, Jcantrone!

This is a bit of a tangent, since I didn't apply to Pitt, but what other programs do rhetoricians consider to be "top tier?"

I don't know myself, as I'm an advertising guy, but I know that rhetoric programs can be either Comm or English departments, so don't forget to search there as well. Send me a PM with your email and I'll email you a PDF that shows NCA rankings of various comm rankings, including rhetoric.

Hi communicationz! I am on the waitlist still for Pitt... got an email from Brent Malin back on Feb. 4th. In following up, he told me that I might not hear about final decisions until after the April 15 deadline... not sure where I am on the list, either, so I was thinking of calling the office up to see if there's any hope or if I shouldn't count on them as a real option. Have you heard anything? Good luck!!

Thanks for your response! I got that same email back in February, but since then I haven't heard anything. I have attempted to follow up a couple of times with a few different people, but haven't gotten a response. I had been wondering if it could go past the April 15th deadline. I'll post if I hear anything & good luck to you, as well! :)
