I have a question about Columbia's funding: is the summer stipend amount per summer for 5 years? (or total for 5 years?) that wasn't clear to me, although I think it's per summer. (Dean's Fellowship, which I think they offer to everyone.)

Claiming an official admission offer from UC Irvine! Oh it's a relief!

If we consider Berkeley and Princeton as rejects, I am three rejections and await on 6 more humbly (and why not count princeton and berkeley? In Russia, if something goes away and you don't hear more,

Today I decided for OSU. I hope this means somebody can get good news from the other programs that accepted me. Still have to hear definitively from Notre Dame, but to assume rejection at this po

On the issue of asking whether people will be staying - definitely ask current graduate students if they've heard anything. And definitely ask. I was told that people were coming (and did move) to places I was accepted that made them more appealing, and at others I was accepted where both primary faculty I hoped to work with were leaving or hoped to in the next year or so (and subsequently did). Despite choosing neither of those options, I've run into the same issue this year where up to three faculty members could be leaving by April, with two in particular being huge losses. There are always rumours, but they usually have grounding and there really is no better person to ask than the PI themselves. 

Asking people, particularly current grad students, helps a lot.

For the princeton admits: I heard that Kosuke and Davis are very likely (almost certain) to move to Stanford. Keohane is probably going there as well. (Source: Grad students within Princeton's department)

Edit: That on the other hand means that Princeton is going to hire somebody (several somebodies) in the next few years to fill the vacancies.

This is really disappointing...Both Kosuke and Davis are great professors that I hope to work with. Then there's only Milner who is mentioned in my SOP and still at Princeton.

Keohane is retiring soonish (source: faculty at Princeton)

This has been rumored for years. Don't count on it.

What's the consensus on UNC? Are decisions out or are they just trolls? There is a post on the results page saying that someone was a reject re: the website, but my status hasn't been updated. Thanks y'all!

 

UNC weirdness. This program is the most irritating (?) of them all when it comes to sending out acceptances/waitlists/rejections.

I'm starting to feel like an anarchist - only directed at programs that trickle....

That's awesome, so happy for you!! Did you hear via email (POI/generic?), portal, etc.?

Thank you! I got an email from DGS, who said "By now, you should have received your official acceptance letter from the UVA Department of Politics." However, I never received said official acceptance letter... :lol:that was the first I'd heard that I had been accepted.

Thank you! And same, do you think they're referring to a physical letter that's in the mail? Checking my junk mail obsessively

Yes it is very possible that it's a mailed letter. Off to check my mailbox now...

Anyone have any guesses about MSU (I know some decisions have been made already) and USC? Starting to feel like there is some conspiracy to keep my inbox empty...

The MSU DGS told me last week that they would send out official acceptances in the next 2 weeks, so if not this week then definitely next week, I think.
