achimneyswallow Posted February 17, 2009 Share Posted February 17, 2009 I received a letter from the program responding to my question regarding interview. The graduate program assistant told me they do invite a select group of students for a Recruitment Weekend. The committee has been considering applicants and will have made all decisions by the beginning of March. Except of these and that I will hear from the department in a few weeks, he did not indicate when the Recruitment Weekend is, nor I am in the select group or not. I am wondering how the Recruitment Weekend works. Is it an only one-time thing? Or they rotate students to the school? That means the program does not do phone interviews (nevertheless, I have seen records on thegradcafe that one and only one applicant reported having received phone interview from a professor)? The answer that the graduate program assistant gave to me is really vague that I can't see a clear chance...BTW, the deadline was Dec 1 last year. It has been more than 2 months and I have not seen people on the board report acceptance...Are schools making decisions later this year? If so, why? The impacts of financial crisis on higher education? Your opinions are sincerely welcome. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
