Did they tell you you were waitlisted or did you solicit? I wrote to them a week ago but haven't received a reply so I'm wondering if I should just presume rejection at this point.

I solicited. It took a few days for them to get back to me, though, so it might be worth it to hang in there a little longer.

Admitted to Utah off of the waiting list!

Very nice. I'm currently on the waitlist there. If the other schools you're waiting to hear from don't work out, do you think you'll accept? I'm leaning towards SUNY Binghamton since they focus on what I do, but I'm still undecided (and still have to hear back from Central European University)...plus I'm tired of tons of snow and cold, so a milder climate would be nice.

The two that I'm really primarily waiting to hear from at this point are Penn and Indiana HPS. If either or both were to admit me there's a good chance I'd turn down Utah, although I can't be certain. Penn, Indiana HPS, Cincinnati, and Utah are all really good fits for the stuff that I do and all four have people I'd really love to work with. Utah and Cincinnati are basically a draw at this point, and then with Penn and Indy it's basically just a question of whether I let "prestige" count in some significant way in their favor. I wish I could say something more concrete than that. Things are still pretty up in the air for me. I'm probably going to go visit Utah at the end of the month, so hopefully that will give me some useful info. I hope you get admitted regardless of whatever decision I make, though! Utah has some pretty cool people.

Admitted to University of Florida. Three more to go folks, and then I can begin my journey toward freedom from this process (for 2 years...).

Finally accepted somewhere: U of Wyoming.  Such pleasant news, especially given the location of the university.

I almost did my MA there. Cool group of people.

I'm very excited to attend.  Did you visit the department before deciding on a different program?

I did. Everyone was super friendly. Very nice departmental atmosphere.

Hey all,

Just wondering about other folks who got accepted/waitlisted at UC Riverside. I received an email stating that I was waitlisted, and then after emailing back the person who emailed me, did not hear anything. Specifically, my questions pertained to whether or not waitlisted students would be invited to visit and if there is any chance of funding. 

Does anyone have any information about the offers and why the person who emailed might not be responding?

Thanks!

Hi: I've also been waitlisted at UCR. I also sent an email to the person who contacted me, but did not hear anything (it's been some time now). I think it's also the case that some people have tried soliciting their status but not received emails back.

I don't know anything about why we haven't received responses, though.

It's California. You know, it's different there. Laid back, free from The Man telling you to hurry... Just be cool, man. Be cool

I want to murder them. I just want my rejection!

I grew up in Riverside. It is neither laid back nor free.

I'm quite surprised to be honest as the initial email had no indication of position/likelihood and there were other posters who were told they were high on the waitlist. But I think "quite surprised" has been my general disposition throughout this entire process!

Thanks for the response! Best of luck to you.
