London School Of Economics & Political Science (LSE)PhD Law, PhD (F21)Rejected via E-mail on 14 May 2021 I17 May 2021
  • Rejected without interview. LLM with Distinction from LSE. Received the standard rejection and another e-mail suggesting me to apply for the PhD in Gender Studies as my proposal was about feminist legal theory. My guess is that the intersection between feminism and legal theory is lacking at the moment in LSE and I only got one professor to support my application (You need to have 2 professors as your supervisors that support your application). I was accepted by Oxford for their DPhil in Law and I am currently waiting to hear about funding from them.

  • TTPB: Congratulations on your offer. Don't take the offense to the following statements - just trying to save you time in the future. I attended a peer school to CBS, and it's highly unlikely you will get an offer from either CBS or HBS. Your GPA is well into the bottom 10%, your GRE is likely below the lowest in the class (and GREs were largely used as a backdoor for admissions until recently), and it sounds like you have no work experience. I would recommend getting 3 to 7 years under your belt before applying and showing a strong trajectory. Otherwise, you are just gifting them application fees.

  • Hello, fellow Columbia polisci MA rejects...I mean, applicants. This is the same person that left the comment on May 8th. Today is May 10th and Columbia finally reached back. I have been rejected. Our long arduous journey of waiting has finally come to an unfortunate end. I suppose when a university takes this long to provide a response it only signifies the applicant has been rejected...who knows? Anyway...Columbia was the last university on my list I needed to hear back from. I've accepted an offer of admission from American University in Washington, D.C., therefore, for the next two years of my life, I'll be residing in America's capital instead of America's City (AKA New York City). I have ambitions of one day attending a top business school after completing my first master's degree and now that I have much experience in riding this roller coaster of applying to graduate schools I will use my newfound knowledge to return to Columbia and apply to Columbia Business School. I swear it...I will return and, this time, I will return victoriously (however, if I apply to Harvard Business School and get accepted by them, then I will reject Columbia's offer of admission just like how they rejected me today). To everyone out there that was rejected this year, I know it hurts and you all probably feel like you're not good enough. Please, don't believe that for a second...I am here to say you are all great! Keep your heads held high, never give up, and years from now, show the world why Columbia University made a disastrous mistake today.

  • At long last, a decision. Unsurprisingly I was rejected. I have been considered for another masters program at Columbia, so I will wait and hear from them (hopefully sooner than this one). 3.7 GPA and strong letters of recommendation. However, little research experience, which may help explain the rejection. Good luck to everyone!

  • Aight guys, I finally got a decision and it wasn't what I was hoping for. Top grad from top uni in the UK, so obviously a bit disappointed. Turned out no news actually was bad news for me... Anyways, never give up on your dreams etc etc... Wishing those of you who are still waiting to hear back the best of luck!

Columbia UniversityPolitical Science, Masters (F21)Wait listed via Website on 8 May 2021 A8 May 2021
  • NOT WAITLISED! Hello, again, fellow Columbia polisci MA applicants. This is the same person that responded on April 28th. Today is May 8th and still no response from Columbia. Holly Martis is the political science department's Graduate Program Coordinator (dropping her name here in case anyone is interested in contacting her about the application review process). I've decided I will not reach out to the political science department or the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences because we all know what they will tell us if we inquire about our applications! They will respond by stating we, the applicants, must wait until we receive an official email indicating a decision has been made on our applications because, under university/graduate school/department policy, the status of an application cannot be divulged to the applicant until they receive that official email. There really exists no point in reaching out to the graduate program coordinator, department, or the graduate school...we all just have to wait...there is nothing we can do but wait. Here is something I found on the political science department's website: "The department continues to admit students through the spring. Hence, notifications to students who are declined admission usually are not sent until the early summer. Although the department recognizes that this is less than ideal for most candidates who may be weighing other options, the department cannot respond to applicant inquiries until the admission process is complete". Whether I'm rejected or accepted, I'll be returning to Grad Cafe to inform you all. My final analysis: Columbia seriously needs to hurry up...I'm sure an admissions committee position calls for a lot of work and I'm sure it's exorbitantly difficult to decide which students will be accepted and which will not and I'm sure it's very time-consuming...but c'mon people...if you already made a decision just let us know already...Christ! Anyway...good luck to you all.

  • Ignore Waitlist: Has anyone heard back from this program at all? I've already accepted an acceptance elsewhere, but it was primarily due to the fact that Guelph has not given the results out yet. I had emailed the program head and received no email back... I understand given COVID results came out later than usual, but I did not expect to just not hear back from a University entirely.

  • Ignore waitlist. // Received an email that i'm on the reserve list. This is what the LSE website said: You are on a reserve list. Your application is considered to be of a high enough standard, but no places remain on your chosen programme. If a place becomes available, you may be sent an offer later in the year. Final offers to reserve-listed applicants will be sent out by the end of August. If anyone with an offer is not going to LSE, hope your response to the offer comes sooner. It would really help those of us who are in the reserve list. :'(

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.

  • [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.

  • Ignore waitlist. I saw some Political Science activity a few weeks ago. I emailed Holly (political science coordinator) on Monday enquiring about decision notification date and she informed me Political Science will hear back by Friday 9th. I also sent a generic email to GSAS admissions office and they informed me 'they could not give an exact date'. From this, it seems best to contact a specific person within the department for information. This probably applies to all departments. I hope this helps someone. Good luck everyone!

MannheimPolitical Science, PhD (S21)Interview via E-mail on 6 Apr 2021 O6 Apr 2021
  • I would say that you should hear back between now and June. German universities are not known for being particularly fast in their decision-making process and it also comes down to how competitive you are as a candidate. More competitive candidates seem to get their admits sooner and the middling candidates a bit later. But, chin up, because Mannheim is solidly good school it competes for PhD students that also apply to places like Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, the Ivies, etc. and it just doesn’t have the name recognition. Also, compared to other European schools (like Gothenburg, Leiden, Aarhus, etc.) they pay their PhD candidates surprisingly little (only €1,250 per month I think). So, it’s possible if not probable that if you don’t hear back soon you may still get in because Mannheim just doesn’t have the same name recognition/resources to always attract the wunderkinder.
