The Waiting Game - Fall 2013 - Share your progress!

Wooo congrats to everyone who's finished. I just have one pesky little Statement of Purpose to write, made all the more difficult since I just realised one of my POIs was poached by another university in November :(

 

Ugh, same thing happened to me, and she's going to a small private undergrad college, so she's completely out of the game. I was so sad because she was one of my top choices. And to make it worse, the POI left at that institution turns out to be a misogynistic asshat (anyone else see this? http://jezebel.com/5952624/university-of-chicago-professor-very-disappointed-that-female-neuroscientists-arent-sexier) and I was left wondering whether it was worth it to still apply because 1) my top choice POI was gone and 2) do I really want to work with someone like that for the next five years of my life?

Just finished my last application (UCSD has a late deadline). So good to be done, but now all I can do is wait and obsess >_>

 

Congrats!!!! Some schools start to notify in two weeks... can you believe it?!

Just got off the phone with Stanford Anthro. My application appeared incomplete and she assured me that they are just barely updating applications so many applicants will appear imcomplete. Sounds like theyve been getting a lot of calls about this. So, if you applied and still have an incomplete app, don't fret!

When Duke and Emory say they will invite us to visit the university before the final selections, at the universities expense, does that also apply to internationals? Has it been done before? still being done with all the funding cuts?

Hi! which one?? I have applied to all your schools and more!

 

UC-Irvine... I ended up applying last minute and they apparently have a quick turnaround. I'm nervous...

 

I applied to three UC's in addition to my list.

Going by the results search on here, Irvine's mid-February - where do you get two weeks from?

Also, while on the topic - anyone have any application figures for Irvine?  It seems strange to me that there are relatively few listings for it in the results page when the department's so central in the discipline at the moment.

Ahhhh... I applied to the criminology program there- January 25-ish they announced last year. I applied to a mix of Anthro and interdisciplinary programs.

Oh I see!  I was hoping you had some insider info!  Will go back to trying not to think about it.  (As you see from my being on here, it's not really working).  Good luck for two weeks' time!

Do you know if UC Irvine interview?  Sounds like potentially not if they have such a rapid turnaround!

Did anyone else applying to UMich get the email on funding today?  Its not entirely clear what we are supposed to do in response to it, since most of the fellowships in the list (or at least the ones I qualify for) require department nomination... Does anyone else have a better idea of what the deal is? Thanks! :)

Btw do you know if UMich usually interviews?

Hi! UCLA does not show the status of materials received etc... can someone tell me if there is a way to check?

Also does anyone know when they are expected to start contacting students? Do they normally conduct interviews?/

 

Thanks,

I just got an email from UMichigan's anthro grad coordinator urging me to apply for fellowships... Anyone else get this email? I'm thinking it's a neutral/everyone email? I think?

 

Oh, It also mentioned this, if anyone is interested:

 

 

The application review process has begun and we anticipate releasing decisions to all applicants in mid to late February.

 

(I don't want to waaaaaait that looooong, Michigaaaaaaan)

I was wondering the same thing... I'm not eligible for any of them!
