CUNY application deadline

Recommended Posts

"Due to miscommunication, two different deadlines for applications for admission to the PhD program at The CUNY Graduate Center have appeared online: December 15 (posted by the administration) and January 15 (posted by the department). This week I have received quite a few emails from justifiably nervous applicants worried they may have missed the deadline. They have not. We are accepting applications until January 15, and we are in touch with the admissions office (conveniently located just 50 feet from the Philosophy Department).

Thank you

Stephen Neale
Graduate Admissions Director"

I'm pretty pissed. I could have had another month to work out kinks in my writing sample. Did anyone else notice this?

You can always re-submit a writing sample and let them know that you would like them to read the revised version. It's possible they don't read through the samples until they have all of the applications in. It's certainly frustrating, but I'll also say that you will NEVER  feel completely fine about your writing sample. You'll always wish you had another day/week/month to do the revisions you would like.

Yes, I noticed it, but submitted it by the December deadline anyway. I may attempt to resubmit my writing sample if they will accept it, but I'm not sure if I will do this yet. 

 

They have had two separate deadlines posted for a while. My statement of purpose could also have been revised.
