I got into Maryland Holy shit I thought I was going to strike out. I'm so freaking happy right now. I actually don't have to go back to Japan now to do PhD work.

She said Yes!!! She is Yale. Claiming an admit, slightly hysterically.  Edit: notified by POI email.

Claiming an admit to Princeton’s security studies PhD program.

Absolutely stunned. It is my dream program and is an absolute perfect fit for my research. I couldn’t be more excited!

Congrats!  Is it in the Wilson school?

I wish I knew that Princeton has security studies Ph.D. program.

Admitted to the NYU masters program without funding. Anyone else with the same outcome?

Almost every failed PhD applicant at the NYU is offered their MA. That's why I said it seems a bit unfair to the folks who applied to just the MA (assuming someone will actually take the offer).

Ditto.  I applied to their PhD in government, but the security studies program would be such a better fit.

Had I not known several alumni of the program, I would not have easily found out about the security studies program either. I guess since it is such a specific program with a very niche goal of preparing social science scholars to conduct applied research, they figure that those candidates who are interested in the subject matter and are a good fit will find the program. That said, I've heard from many people that they should get the word out more about it. 

The program itself is closely related to the political science department—sharing many of the same faculty and cross-listing most relevant courses—but it remains an entirely unique, standalone program.

Has anyone else not heard back from Chicago yet? I'm guessing I got rejected from their PhD program, but I'm wondering why they're taking so long to tell me.

I also have not heard back. American subfield. Most acute case of the staggers yet?

Fortunately I've gotten other admits but it's my last decision pending and I just want this all to be over...

Congrats! Did you apply to UIC or UIUC? I'm currently on the waitlist for UIUC. Do you know if they do interviews for people once they're accepted off the wait-list as well or is it just before acceptance?

I applied and was accept to UIUC. I just accepted my offer yesterday, so I cannot really speak to the waitlist. I think they don't do interviews. I did not have one, so I doubt those accepted off the will either. Best to you!

May I know when the visitation day of UIUC is?

It was actually an individualized visitation, meaning that no one day for all students was planned, but each student can when they could. I went Feb. 13 with two other prospective students, and two other students went last week.

Oh, it must be a good experience. Thanks for the information.

Is there any one who accepted by SUNY Binghamton but will go to another school? If so, please decline the offer if you have better choice. I am waitlisted and Binghamton is my best choice.
