@brogan4334 Congratulations on your acceptances!  Did your notification from UCB include any stats regarding admissions?  Haven't heard back from them yet and I'm curious.

Thanks! The email mentioned that there were around 100 applicants but nothing specific about how many were offered admission.

OSU Comparative Studies might be a good fit. I would look at the communication program at Minnesota as well. Also folks like UCSB Film and Media studies as well. Oh and Boston University as a new Phd

Just Skype interviewed with Stanford.  It was.... painful.

@dreamsfrombunkerhill oh noooo! im sure it was better than you thought - maybe they pushed and tested you because they thought you were a strong candidate?

Hi folks, I have been accepted into UC Irvine PhD Visual Studies Program! It's my first acceptance after 2 formal and 1 implicit rejections; It's mid Feb and I was almost convinced that I had been rejected everywhere else and TOTALLY freaking out. Now I can relax a bit and wait for the remaining few knowing that I will be able to go somewhere in the fall :lol:

@tunamelt Thanks! I have a niche area of interest in video game studies. I'm still waiting to hear back from Brown MCM and UC Santa Barbara. Not too optimistic about Brown but fingers crossed...

Has anyone heard back from or received interview requests from Northwestern Screen Cultures PhD program? According to past years' results, they should be holding campus interview at the end to this month, meaning they should have sent out interview requests by now....

Also, seems like NYU MCC has already sent out some interview requests last Friday :( i suppose there's not much hope in getting in anymore unless they haven't sent out all the interview request yet....

Okay. I'd be curious to hear what are everyone's safety schools and have you heard from them?  

I have a fellowship offer from Berkeley and was just waitlisted at Iowa, one of my "safety" schools.

Anyone have news of acceptances/rejections yet?  I was called on Thursday by USC and offered a fully funded position in their Cinema and Media Studies MA program!  I applied to the Ph.D., but I'll take anything!!

Ok I am über late discovering this thread, but I had the same thing happen with USC + applied to Berkeley and haven't heard anything yet either! Any idea what you'll do??
