  • Off the waitlist! Thrilled.
York UniversityPolitical Science, PhD (F21)Rejected via Website on 29 Apr 2021 U29 Apr 2021
  • Disgraceful and disrespectful - these are the only words I can use to describe the way the department handled the application process. I don't know what was going on behind the curtain, but please, treat us like adults and be transparent.

  • Ignore WL: TTPB - Thank you so much for your reply! I actually hadn't seen that update, so that's hugely reassuring, and nice to know they've provided an update. Good luck to you too!
London School Of Economics & Political Science (LSE)Law, PhD (F21)Rejected via Website on 29 Apr 2021 29 Apr 2021
  • Sigh... Id received: 14 Jan., rejection: 28 April, no waitlist, no reserve list, no transcript drop. Via LFY and via email a few hours afterwards. LL.M. from LSE (with Mid-Merit), 1 published article in an international journal, 2 research assistant positions, 1 offer to be a teaching assistant and a very niched PhD proposal, with 2 LSE professors nominated as supervisors (from whom I had previously received guidance re my proposal). Best of luck!

Columbia UniversityPolitical Science, Masters (F21)Wait listed via Website on 28 Apr 2021 A28 Apr 2021
  • NOT WAITLISTED. Hello, fellow Columbia University applicants. It's me again; the one who commented on 04/18 and 04/24. I'm still waiting to hear back from Columbia. To answer the question that was asked by the person below me, I say to consider a "no response" from Columbia not as a rejection. The political science department updated their master's program website and stated this: "The cohort for AY21/22 will be larger than our usual MA cohort. The cohort will be around 35-40 students. This is due to the fact there will be no incoming PhD students (we paused PhD admissions for the year)". It is very possible the department is still going through thousands of applications and is taking more time than usual this academic year (because of COVID), compared to previous academic years, to figure out which applicants to admit and which to reject. It is also possible Columbia has placed those who still haven't heard back on a waitlist but never informed the students they've been placed on that waitlist. I suppose it's a matter of waiting and being patient. Again, once I hear back, I'll be posting the update here on Grade Cafe. Good luck to you all.

  • Ignore WL: Anyone have any idea when we might hear? Emailed the program coordinator who just directed me back to the department website, which doesn't have many details. Should I just assume a rejection at this point?
MannheimCDSS, Political Science, PhD (F21)Wait listed via E-mail on 27 Apr 2021 I27 Apr 2021
  • [NOT WL]: I applied 86 days ago today for early decision and when I asked for clarification around the 70-day mark I received a response that roughly equated to "you'll know when we know." Helpful. I've gotten to the point where I don't know that I would even attend if I was accepted because of how completely intractable the administration seems. Really poor form, Mannheim.
University College London (UCL)Political Science, PhD (F21)Rejected via Other on 23 Apr 2021 I23 Apr 2021
  • Received an email saying the portal had been updated. I received an offer from Oxford (my first choice) so this isn't too big of a deal, even if it is somewhat of a surprise.
Carleton UniversityPolitical Science, Masters (F21)Rejected via E-mail on 23 Apr 2021 23 Apr 2021
  • Domestic student, meh GPA, strong letters of reference. Disappointed but not surprised.

  • I was waitlisted in february.
York UniversityPolitical Science, PhD (F21)Wait listed via Website on 19 Apr 2021 I19 Apr 2021
  • Ignore waitlist - good to hear that they are making their decisions this week. Hopefully we will know by the end of this week or early next week how it went. I guess by this late stage we must be at the discussion table ie we haven't been cut early on? Best of luck to everyone!

  • Ignore the waitlist. The department informed me previously that the admissions committee would be meeting this week to discuss international applications. It would be strange if they had lied to me.
Columbia UniversityPolitical Science, Masters (F21)Wait listed via E-mail on 19 Apr 2021 I19 Apr 2021
  • Not waitlisted. Haven't received a decision either, but I applied just before the deadline in February so wasn't expecting anything too soon. Guessing they just have more applications than usual to go through given that they removed the demand for a GRE score. And hey, no news is good news, right?

  • Not waitlisted. Today is 4/18 and I'm still waiting to hear back from Columbia. Is anyone else also waiting? Does anyone have any further insight as to why they're taking this long? Any info would be appreciated! Good luck to everyone. Thanks.

  • Haven't received any information regarding my application to York Uni (CA) yet. International student. I emailed them today actually to ask for an update - but I guess they won't reply until Monday at the earliest now. I wonder why they are making the international students wait? Good luck to people still waiting and fingers crossed. Oh and deffo the post two below was a troll.
