What previous posters have said about the fit is the crux of it, I think. Unlike the hard sciences there really is no "If you have X publications, then . . ." or, "If you have X research internships,

Hi, I just received an informal admit email earlier this week from Maryland's Higher Ed PhD program. Good luck to you!

Don't worry about it girlbat. I was just giving my perspective (for PhD programs, not masters) - I'm not omniscient and like I said, I'm just an applicant along with everyone else, with some acceptanc

The CIS concentration director told me during my interview to expect a response late Feb-early March and that later doesn't mean bad news, it just means things take a while.

Personally, I'm expecting more like March this year because now that its a joint venture between HGSE and GSAS, everything has to be passed back and forth and double approved and given that I've never seen a place as absurdly bureaucratic as Harvard is, I can only imagine how much slower the process is now.

Also yes, the official word is interview invitations will go out throughout February but I haven't heard of anyone getting one since 1/25 - including my friend who I actually think is a way stronger candidate than me and was basically coaxed into applying by the HGSE prof she's currently researching with and......no interview. Such a crazy process.

Same from Stanford. Sad but not surprised. I got the "being considered for the MA" message which I have to think about. Anyone know if that has funding? 

Having talked to the department a little before applying, I know that years past have not seen a lot of funding allocated for masters students. It's only a one-year program if you do POLS.

 

I was rejected, too. :):(

Ah, commiserating together! Though your signature says you have three acceptances, so you can't be hurting too much! Congrats!

 

Thanks for your info - I saw today that it was a one year MA and I'm actually really intrigued by that. I could be broke by the bay for one year

I am being considered for the POLS Master’s as well. Does anyone have any idea as to when those decisions are made?

The email says before the end of March, but looking at results trends from the past, it could be sooner. Just another waiting game. But they will definitely notify before the April deadline.

kijewels, it's the best here! Super collaborative and supportive environment and never a lack of good discussion/debate! I turned down a 20K grant from Columbia to be here and was worried about regretting it but I totally feel like it was the right call! Best of luck!
