Once you've been recommended for admission how long does it usually take the graduate school to send out the official word? Found out last Monday I was recommended for admission and I have spoken with my future advisor, but I still have not heard anything from the graduate school! I emailed them today. I suppose they are just really busy with other programs, but I am getting so impatient!

An acceptance!  I got into University of Arkansas!  Funding is TBA, but after straight rejections last year, this is super exciting!

Hi guys!  I just got an email from the DGS at Princeton... I got in! Formal acceptance letter to follow. I am still in serious shock. It seems surreal. I am so thankful to everyone in this forum

It takes awhile, sometimes weeks. In many cases, grad schools won't send out word until all funding decisions, admission decisions, etc. are in from all departments-- which takes awhile. You're in, so congrats and don't worry about it!

Has anyone heard anything at all from Rutgers? I checked my status and it still says no decision. Ugh. 

I was interviewed by Rutgers and subsequently waitlisted. My understanding is that they have made their offers already (less than five funded offers!) and are waiting on responses from the admitted students.

Any news out of UC-Irvine? They said we could expect to hear back in February, but the "application pending" status is starting to induce anxieties...

I got a rejection email from them this morning. It was a generic email explaining that there were a large number of qualified applicants. I'm not too upset because I've been accepted to the UCI Informatics PhD program.

Wishing you luck ecopolitiq!

I got the same email, unfortunately, but congrats on the acceptance! Likewise, I've been accepted to continue here at OSU, so it looks like we are safe!

Did you get your undergrad at OSU and got accepted for a masters degree?

Thanks! Congrats to you too! I got accepted to OSU's anthropology MA program back in 2011. I ended up going to a different program and sometimes I regret that. It's a great school and everyone else in my family has gone to OSU. Go Buckeyes!
