Northwestern Masters Applicants


Recommended Posts

I got in! Nothing about scholarships though, and without it I doubt I could afford it with their leveling year :(  I am so glad I checked this website, I never would have thought to check on a Saturday!

Congrats to everyone who has heard! If not, don't worry - who knows what they're doing, and it's not over till it's over.

 

I also didn't see anything about funding, and I'm not going to get my hopes up until I do. I am hoping that this letter from the Graduate School will be followed up with an email from the department with more information. For example, I'm sure they have an earlier decision deadline that they want to tell us about, since the letter says 8/9/13.

Does anyone happen to know how NU is doing their acceptances (first round, second round)??? I did not receive a letter yesterday either and don't know if I should just assume at this point that I did not get it! Anyone have any insight?? It looked like past years they sent acceptance & rejection on the same day.

No clue, unfortunately. I didn't get a letter either, so I'd like to know as well

Has anyone heard anything about funding? Or...anything from the program itself at all?

 

Not a thing here. Just the letter from the Graduate School that's on Apply Yourself.

They said that acceptance packets would be sent out via snail-mail, so I'm assuming it will still be a few more days until we hear anything, even if they sent them out the same day decisions went out online.

I visited Northwestern today and the woman I met with was able to pull up the funding information -- no money for me.  Shucks.

 

Sorry to hear that, O.T.! I hope you enjoyed your visit anyways.

 

What were your overall impressions? And was anything said about when they were notifing people about funding? I know the odds aren't good for anyone.

Hi Everyone!

 

I applied to both CU Boulder and Northwestern, and they are two of the three programs I have yet to hear from. I see that they've been sending out decisions since the end of last week, so my hope is dwindling, however I'd still like to know one way or another. I haven't gotten anything from either of them! When do you think it would be ok to call and ask for a status update? 

 

Applied: CU Boulder, Northwestern, ColumbiaNew Mexico State UniversityGeorge Washington, UW-Madison (one year program for out-of-fielders)

 

Accepted: George Washington, New Mexico State

 

Waitlisted: Columbia

 

Rejected:

I thought it was great. I hadn't realized that they're building a new clinic currently (right across from the current building meaning tons of construction going on) but it is supposed to be done for fall 2014. Even so, the clinic they currently have is quite nice. There is a great student lounge area for grad students the likes of which I haven't seen elsewhere. The building itself is a bit of a 70s style monstrosity but seems well maintained. I got to meet a few people, all of whom were very welcoming and I had a very positive overall impression of the program. I think they have already sent funding info by postal mail.

As far as Evanston goes, it happens to be my favorite place in the world. My boyfriend is an Evanston native and I have lived there with him and his family over school breaks the last few years, so I know it pretty well. Downtown near the school is great - awesome food and cafes - and I have always felt pretty safe. It is a city and you have to be aware of yourself like you do anywhere, and certainly there are safer pockets than others (for instance, gang violence has been on the rise but it happens in a very concentrated area that is not very near Northwestern where I doubt any grad students would be living). The schools are great, and obviously there are fabulous opportunities in the area for placements. Public transportation is pretty good and it is quite convenient to get into Chicago because the El extends into Evanston.

If anyone wants to know more about Evanston, let me know. I love it there and am happy to talk about it. :)

Just saw that someone posted that they were notified of a scholarship on the results page. Has anyone else already heard? I don't want to be one of those people turning the results page into a conversation but I'm really tempted to post on there asking that person how they were notified...

Holy moly! $30,000 a year. Congrats to that person, I'd KILL for that at northwestern!
