I'm honestly in a strange daze right now. My official acceptance for Harvard's Population Health Sciences program came through a bit ago (Social and Behavioral Sciences concentration). I was not expec

The intensity at which we are stalking dates and seeking patterns to understand the chaotic admissions process truly represents the nerds we are. Good luck everyone! 

just got off a 15 minute skype interview with UNC Health Behavior. Figured I'd put the interview questions out there for anyone who is going to interview or is curious what is asked: 1. what are

Just received this email from Rutgers today:

Thank you for your recent inquiry to RUTGERS SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH in Piscataway, New Jersey, USA. 

Please note that that the doctoral review committee was overwhelmed by the large volume of new applications that they received for the fall term, that the committee is still in the process of reading and evaluating all of the many application packages!

As of now, the committee  hopes to  be able to notify the doctoral applicants regarding their Fall Admissions Decision within the next six or seven weeks.

 

SIX OR SEVEN WEEKS?!?!? ?

Some information might be helpful for you. I submitted my application to Rutgers before Dec.1 and received the email from the admission committee in early January saying that I have been recommended by the adcomm to the POI, but it turns out that the POI doesn't have enough funding for supporting PhD students this year.

I had spoke to my POI and the Dean frequently before and he assured me they would have full funding for my research interest. That's the only reason I applied.

That sounds weird...I would suggest contacting your POI directly as I feel Rutgers is more depending on professors.GOOD LUCK!

Waitlisted at GWU for their PhD in Social and Behavioral Sciences. However, I will be removing my name from the list.

I see GWU rejections on the result page too. Wonder if no news from GWU at this moment means something good. 

Just rejected by Harvard. It is expected as I was super nervous in the interview.  BTW, congratulations on your two offers!

I see on the survey that somebody received an acceptance to UMich PhD in Epi? Anybody want to claim that, and for what concentration? Thanks! 

Hi, sorry for the late reply, that was me! I received an email from my assigned mentor telling me I was accepted and to expect an official acceptance shortly. I have yet to receive that official offer though. Oh, and I'm cancer epi.

Thanks!  No idea, I'm sorry, my potential advisor just said "soon". Did you go to the interview day in early February? You could perhaps email the epi admissions coordinator and ask?

Hi all!

Another lurker here. Thanks to everyone who replies to this thread-it's one of the few things that kept me sane throughout this process haha. Just want to claim the acceptance to the PhD program in Health Services Research and Policy at Pitt! Still waiting on GW.

Good luck to everyone out there!

Can we assume an “unofficial” acceptance to be a sure thing? I got an email that I was accepted to a PhD program and they said the official letter would be sent out soon. Im not sure what goes into the process of offering someone an official acceptance, but can we assume we’re definitely in before the official letter comes? I know it sounds nonsensical, but I can hardly believe I got in!

I highly doubt they would tell you that you were accepted unless they were sure  about it. I imagine that could be a tricky situation for them if they had to rescind that. There's no advantage for them to tell you these things earlier than necessary, especially if they had any doubt. So congrats :) What school?

I went through the same thing with Berkeley and had the same concerns. Basically your admittance just goes to the official stamp and sign and then they send you the official thing. I got my official letter from Berkeley roughly a week after the unofficial letter. I hope and assume this is the same for you!
