Hi everyone. I'm considering applying to this program next year (specifically LSTD). I've read through this thread - congrats to everyone who got in! Do you have any suggestions for someone looking to apply? My current GRE scores are 163 Q, 159 V and 5 on writing. Maybe a tad low? But I'd be coming with a Masters under my belt already so that might help. 

Did you have really specific research ideas when applying? I have a general theme of what I'd want to research but don't know exactly what details of it I would research. 

Also, who contacted professors ahead of time? How did you do this? Did you get a chance to meet them in person?

Thanks so much in advance for any info and tips. ?

@sheriberi It’s hard to speak about the “difficult decision” when I realize it’s such a privileged position. I’m still trying to soak it all in. Yesterday feels unreal. I think fit is key. I want

@higheredbee ooh, I'd rather not say, sorry! the doctoral cohorts at the gse are very small and I would probably identify myself  but happy to take random non-identifying questions if you have any...

I got in!!!! Very dramatic afternoon, I got rejected from Harvard but accepted from Stanford IEPA. Soooooooo happy right now!!!!

hey,

 

just wanted to chime in and say that I got into the MA program with a V 163 , Q 155, 5 on writing so you might be fine! Stanford seems to be a lot more holistic than other schools

Hi guys! I am an international student and I got waitlisted for ICE on March 2nd. However, because I've applied through a scholarship and contact is through a designated spokesperson, I don't have access to the email. Could anyone guide me in this regard (maybe copy/paste the content of the email here, if possible)? When are we expecting the waitlist to be processed?

It looks like someone got waitlisted via email for the SHIPS program. I suppose that means everyone else has been rejected?

That's my assumption, too...

I just got waitlisted for RILE. Does anyone know how many people they admitted this year? And what the chances are of getting in after you've been waitlisted? I feel like waiting until April 15th to hear back is a bad idea since most other programs require an answer by then.

@NAhmad I had a friend who applied last year (she got rejected). She was quite close with a lot of the Ph.D. students there and told me that, while the GSE lauds RILE as one of the most popular programs, there aren't actually a lot of people who are accepted into RILE directly. She was told by Ph.D. students that many people actually transferred into RILE from other programs. So, with that being said, I would assume that most anyone who gets in would most definitely attend?
