Thank you!  This is why it's good to have this forum.  Every year in the past it was on February 28th, and their website says "late February" so I was very confused.

For those who are currently students at LIU Post, can someone tell me who is part of the faculty there and what their positions are? I know Monika Zak is the new director but there’s not a lot on her on the website. I just want to prepare myself before my interview next week. Thank you!

Anyone hear anything about Hopkins?

They reached out on February 20th offering three interview dates. Not sure if there have been subsequent waves or will be future waves.

Do you know if there is a portal that we can access to see if a decision has been made?

Have you tried logging back into the SOPHAS portal for Hopkins? I'm trying, but it's giving me an error.

The one where we can look to see if recommendations were submitted... I can still log into that one but I don’t know where to look to see if a decision has been made

Does anyone have any resources for graduate school level scholarships?

This is a good question, and I wish I did. Other people may have more info than me. Unfortunately I think most masters level funding is institution specific. You can look into any fellowships or assistantships/work study your institution might offer. Larger national funding tends to be reserved for doctoral level students in research.

Don't know if this has been discussed before, but does anyone know when FAFSA forms have to be done by? Does it depend on the program? Is it confusing to fill out? Any advice? Thanks!

Hey guys, I would advise you to email the director (Rachel Gannaway); she responded quickly about my status. I interviewed for the PhD program, and faculty involved in the dual program relayed to me that all decisions have been made at this point in time and that the MS is particularly tough to get an interview for. It appears as though they've only had about 2 students accepted into the dual program in recent years. All the best for your remaining applications!

FAFSA is super easy to fill out, it only took me about 10 mins. The sooner you do it the better chance you have at receiving money. It will most likely just be unsubsidized loans that they offer you, but they grant them on a first come first basis so if you wait until summer, they may not have a lot to give out. 

Edit/note: it will tell you how much you qualify for, but that doesn't necessarily mean that's how much you will receive. Someone else made that clarification for me before. And the max you can qualify for as a grad student is around $23-24,000.  They told us that at one of my interviews last year.

@AJM19 @raerae32 @adterry

And anyone waiting to hear from Hopkins

I wanted to let you know that I reached out a week or so back but have heard nothing.   I personally am assuming at this point that they are passing on me, so I'm focused on just discerning how I would rank the schools where I do have interviews.

So after an interview I sent out thank you e-mails to the program director and the three people who actually interviewed me. I got a reply from the director but not from the interviewers...typical?

@NW1995  I did the same.  I heard back from one of the interviewers as well as the director, but it may be because I shared something of particular interest with her.  I imagine response may vary from school to school.  In academic interviews (ie: teaching), it is common that there is only one person who is cleared to communicate with the candidates.  I would not take the lack of response personally!

I wanted to revise that I did hear back from the JHU Director with a *very* nice note.  Sounds like they were slammed last week (and I'm sure the weather there didn't help!!).  Anyway, the official notices (of their declines on our applications) should come out "soon".

Best wishes to all still waiting on responses from JHU and elsewhere, but especially:

Hi All-

This is my first time posting, I've been a long time follower. I just received my first interview offer ever from Bay Path and I'm kind of freaking out. Its for this upcoming weekend (i'm in CA) so its pretty short notice. They do offer Skype interviews but does that reflect poorly on me to not go to the campus? Has anyone else Skype'd with them and had a positive response? Anything at this point would be helpful..I am still incredibly shocked.
