Uh oh, another Harvard post. Looks like I'm done for both for Yale and Harvard :(

Trust the intel @dih2, trust the intel!

Also not buying any of the Yale posts until someone here claims at least one of them.

Agreed, it seems unlikely that someone would get into Yale and not post here if they already post on a regular basis

All the Yale and Georgetown admits are international, it looks like? Maybe notifying international applicants first. Hopefully. Maybe. 

 

Edit: Or trolls.

Trolls. I still have to meet the international student who is interested to study something they never studied before (American politics).

There's plenty of internationals that end up in the American subfield.

Well, American politics nowadays are quite... interesting. To say the least. :lol:

But usually (my experience) they studied American politics before because they studied in the US. A complete international usually doesnt have the chance to study American politics prior to their acceptance into a PhD. What I wanted to say with that was that I think it is highly unlikely given my experience and experience from people I know: Internationals that studied internationally do not end up in the American subfield.

Rejected by MIT.

Same here. Don't care!

Edit: meant I don't care that I got rejected. Not that you got rejected. Sorry if it came off that way.

Got the MIT rejection as well.

It always stings, but I'm so glad they didn't drag this out and into the weekend!

Almost like a response to this thread, now there is a Yale acceptance by an American applicant. Or troll. Whatever.

Same here. I love their campus, but it probably wouldn't have been a good personality fit if I had gotten in.

I mostly agree with the troll-until-claimed idea, but this seems like a lot of Yale posts for a troll, no? I see 11....

Yeah, 11 is way too many...

That'd be what, between 1/2 and 1/3 of all admits? And still no claims on top of that?

Shenanigans, shenanigans.

Well, I am an international student, who works on American politics, not yet in grad school and I live outside of the United States. There are a large number of programs outside the US that deal with American politics, not to mention scholars.
