PhDreams, are you applying for the dual degree in education and anthro or just Anthro? I'm a current Penn student if you have questions.

 

Just anthro. Are you in the Anthro program now? I'd love to know more about your experience in the program. PM me, please?

I don't know if I am just being terrible at dates (likely) or why I thought I could expect results in the next few days, but looking over the last few years' results from the programs I applied to, I have about a month to wait.  

WHHHYYY.

Anyone hear back from:

 

-UPENN

-UChicago

-UCONN

-University of Washington 

-Washington State University

 

for their socio-cultural MA/Ph. D programs?

 

This limbo period blows hard. Never felt so paranoid, insane, gittery in my life @_@....

So far I know that two of us had UPenn interviews this past wknd. Shortlists have already been made. Decisions should be made in the next two weeks. About 5 spots this year.

I'm not sure how closely departments follow university admit policies, the Division of the Social Sciences Admission's page has this announcement (UChicago):

 

https://socialsciences.uchicago.edu/announcement/applications-currently-under-review

 

"Applications for the 2013-2014 academic year are currently being reviewed by faculty. Decisions will be released in the first week of March. If your contact information changes before then, please update your information through the online system."

 

Could be a while...womp-womp.

From what I've noticed in the past, depts always post the latest you could hear back from them. As in, if you didn't get in. If you're in, you should hear much sooner. Soooo... yay?

Yay!!!! Congratssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks!  It was pretty vague, now I'm dying to find out who my adviser will be and what the funding situation is.  But who am I to complain, my research interest is in human origins so ASU was my top choice and I'm walking on air today.

I haven't seen anyone posting about Johns Hopkins or Northwestern.  Any news from anyone else? I did receive the email from JHU asking to reply with my research interests to the earlier inquiry, but  nothing past that.

Just got my first result, rejected from Brown. Not shocked, it wasn't a great fit but still bummed, it was my best shot at still working in bioanthropology even while I went in a more archaeology direction. Oh well. Still JEEZ did the first one have to be a rejection?

I'm sorry to hear that! Just try to shake it off and hope for the best with the rest of them. Best of luck.

this is an incredibly stupid question (perhaps a sign i wasn't accepted? haha) but can someone explain how to check your app status for brown?  I've logged into the applyweb thing but can't find any info on the status...  what am i missing that is staring me in the face?

 

I got the impression that this first batch of decision was for archaeology...did you apply to the archaeology cluster?

 

Thank you

AH. No I am sociocultural.  That might explain it... will it show via the applyweb system when there is a decision?  Thank you! :)

I just wanted to add that it seems to depend on the system the school is using whether you can see your updated status or not. So I've just been resorting to constant refreshing of my inbox.

I'm with you on the obsessive email checking haha... although I will say last year I had been rejected from a few programs and they didn't bother to email me for 3+ weeks after my status had already changed on the online app.

After logging on I clicked on my app so that I could see that my transcripts, recs etc were in, then at the bottom of that was a link that said "decision letter." If there is nothing there yet, it could be that archaeology is decided but sociocultural isn't, or maybe you're in a final pool while those of us with rejections are just out of the running? Although from what I've heard rejections usually go out last so that last guess of mine seems odd. More likely it's option A. Good luck!
