@PoliSci-freak I got my Maryland decision around Valentine's day.  Have you checked the portal?

Yep nothing, emailed grad director two weeks ago and said to wait as they're making second rounds soon. Unlikely to go there but still want to have the option.

Is CUNY done releasing offers? What about Maryland? Some have been rejected. Didn't hear anything. Any insights would be appreciated.

Someone posted an acceptance from CUNY on the results page. I called last week and was told decisions would be out 1st week of March. Have you heard anything? I find it a bit odd that they announce so close to their visitation day on March 20...

Heard nothing... If their visitation is Mar 20 I expect they have told all those admitted, then...

Yup I guess so too. Pretty much struck out this cycle, so I'll forget about this whole PhD thing. Was a long shot anyway.

where have you decided to go instead?

Haven't decided, visiting Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley, and Princeton (maybe Columbia as well). But I didn't think Yale was as good of a fit (I'm American / methods).

Either! I haven't heard a peep. that said their site does say first two weeks of March. i'm just booking travel for visiting days now so it'd be good to have everything settled....

MAPSS is first week of April.  I assume PhD is some time else

Sorry I can't be more  helpful :(

My Columbia portal still just reads "Submitted."  Assuming a rejection at this point, but is anyone else still in that position?  

It's possible (even likely) that the holdup is because they are considering offering you admission to the MA program.

Hello guys,

I've just received an offer of admission from John Hopkins SAIS for the MA, although without any mention of Financial Aid. Is there someone else who received an admission offer from them?

 

Hi, I am also in the same situation. I checked their website, and it says that there was a financial aid application deadline for February 15th. Do you know if we needed to submit it? I do not think I sent in such an application.

I have just noticed they sent me a separate email about my Financial Aid status. Unfortunately, they have not been able to offer me a scholarship.
