Fall 2017 Education Acceptances/Interviews/Rejections


Recommended Posts

If PhD programs don't invite you for an interview, does that mean you're automatically rejected?

I've gone back and re-read previous year's threads for my schools, and from what I can tell, if a school gives interviews, and you don't get one, you will most likely, eventually, and after a few months of waiting, be rejected.

So, I made a T-chart: schools that give interviews, and schools that don't. I found that process helpful to at least have a sense of what I am waiting for. One school I wasn't sure of so I called them and they very nicely informed me that they don't do interviews and that they'll be sending out notices at the end of January.

@higheredbee For UCLA I applied for the MA in HEOC, so I'm assuming MA decisions will be released after PhD decisions. Good luck! I hope we all receive favorable decisions sooner rather than later lol. Fingers crossed!! 

I applied to the MA in Student Affairs at UCLA. The wait is so agonizing! Next week may be the week though!

Wonderful news @rockrmoose!!

Thank you!!

I have a question for everyone. I know Master's students don't typically get funding. Does anyone know when financial aid packages come out usually? Will it be before April 15th? I need to know if I can take out a federal loan, and have already filled out the FAFSA. >.<

Yes. Interviews are this week, and decisions will be made on January 26th.

@isa-misa I applied to the Policy Program, and when I called I was told there would be no interviews. Are you speaking just of the Higher Ed program? I hope? 

Congrats @higheredbee

Has anyone heard back from any Southern California school Education Programs? (e.g., UCI, UCSD, UCLA). The anticipation is killing me! 

@girgis99 I am applying the PhD in UC Irvine's Education school with LLT specialization. I haven't heard anything, not even an interview invitation. My GATS tracker has been showing"being reviewed." I'm preparing myself for any worst case scenario.

@hopefulPhD2017, that's probably me. I saw in the Results, someone received an interview invitation from the school I'm applying. However, I haven't heard anything. I'm preparing myself for the worst case scenario.

I applied for the PhD at UC Irvine's Education School with a EPSC specialization and I haven't heard anything either. My GATS tracker also shows "being reviewed". :(

Got an interview invite from Boston College (Lynch School of Education)!!!! Overjoyed! God, how do I prepare for the interview?!

Congratulations! I'm sending you lots of luck. Preparation wise I can only suggest threads on this forum and to refresh your knowledge of your personal statement and the work the school does.

Someone posted on the results page yesterday that they were accepted via phone call on Jan. 20th to the Student Affairs program at UCLA...awaiting my rejection now...

Hang in there! The program has a wait list (at least the year I was in it) and sometimes someone from the wait list gets accepted later on!
