Should we expect to hear back from JHU & IU early next week?

Also, those who know anything about Maryland, if one hasn't heard a thing from them, is it safe to assume a rejection at this point?

Maryland's acceptances went out a week or so ago. Not sure how they handle their waitlist

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.

does anyone know how many people are usually admitted to university of illinois at urbana champaign?

They say they want cohorts of around 8 to 10 students, so they probably admit something like double that. A good guess would be that they admit approximately 5-6 students in each of IR, comparative, and American politics.

Seems a little odd that no one on the forum or the results page has claimed Harvard acceptance.

There are now four on the acceptances page and someone earlier in the thread claimed a waitlist. 

.. Per insider info, the Gov department hasn't announced anything. HKS has tho. I would take whatever you see posted with a grain of salt, especially on the results thread and from user's who's first post is claiming a Harvard acceptance. I'm about 99% sure they are PSR trolls.

This is incorrect. I stand by what I said, and I'm not a PSR troll.

Where's your insider info coming from?

As far as I can tell, here is what's going on with Harvard Gov: committee members began informally notifying admits / waitlists on Friday, but some committee members have been slower than others. So the overall effect is that good news began trickling down on Friday, stopped over the weekend, and will likely finish trickling down during the first half of this week. Uncharacteristic for Harvard, but there it is. 

Good luck!

(Edit: this applies to Harvard Gov, not necessarily to PEG / other joint programs.)

How were you able to infer this?
