Hi, everybody! Just to join you in this darkest hour! I am currently doing Master in HK. My fields of interest are sociophonetics, speech prosody and speech perception. I haven't heard any news yet

Well, I can try to answer some of your questions since I applied to programs coming from a non-linguistics background. Hah, I guess I'm a bit shocked that you'd say a "non-linguist" wouldn't likely be

Hello all, this is my first message to the forum. I just wanted to say for the record that this is the best and worst website for hopeful graduate students. I don't believe any explanation is necessar

Just got my first "official" email. But it's not an acceptance or rejection or anything I didn't already know. Just an email to notify me that I'm a finalist & they're still figuring out funding. Going crazy! So happy for everyone that's gotten good news!

I got that e-mai too! I see people posted rejections from UW.

Ahh... so that email was from UW I'm guessing. Are you two applying for the MA program or the PhD? I wasn't rejected and I didn't get that email. Whatever that means... I'm applying for the PhD, btw. I already have an MA.

Yeah, MA.

Will do! You didn't apply to Georgetown? I think they have a good applied linguistics program. I'm more into the theoretical side myself ( phonetics & phonology) though I'm also into the experimental side (phonetics) and sociolinguistics.

no, I didn't apply to Georgetown-- probably should have. My background is second language acquisition, and language & thought... which is probably why I got an interview with Johns Hopkins but no where else so far. It sort of makes sense, although it sucks, that if you have 180 applications for 10 spots, you eliminate people who don't have a BA in theoretical linguistics.
