Has anyone heard from Parsons?

Mar 15, 17 5:09 pm

I got nothing and am still waiting :( I called them and got really vague response. they said the decision has been sending out since Feb.28th on a rolling base. Feel like just need to wait.

toomuchtuna

Hope they get back to us soon I want to weigh all of my options and every other school got back to me.

toomuchtuna

Just heard back. Admitted with 35% tuition Dean's scholarship.

connect.12

Got an email in middle of the night instructing me to login and check my application status. admitted with 20% tuition. Bout time

Looking for insight: I got a 20k scholarship to Penn, but it was my 5th choice so would it be better to go or apply again after I get experience?

Can a Harvard or Yale degree help you more career-wise than a degree from Penn? Is the risk of not getting accepted later on worth it?

Any advice helps!

what did the others offer you? I'm assuming less or didn't get accepted? Penn is defiantly still a good school, and has the same connections as the other, Im in the same situation, got 15k from Penn (which is no were near enough), so unless i can get more money ill probably end up at Syracuse (still excited!) then do a m.arch 2 or m.s later down the road.(Im interested in Academia)

ML17

I didn't get in anywhere else, but I'm straight out of college so I think I just lack experience. Isn't Penn notorious for not giving big scholarships though?

calebehly

Idk, im fresh out also,which im starting to realize its not good for the scholarship game. Idk Penn actually covered the rest of their cost with loans support....Columbia (which i got the same amount in scholarship) didn't even cover half their tuition with loans.....Penn is still a super good school, if your able to pay for it, why not!

htxcow

Were these merit or financial scholarships, or were you able to tell?

ML17

It didn't say, but given my circumstances I don't think it was financial.

calebehly

they were merit, they were in my acceptance letters.

AAM44

I haven't heard anything from MIT yet....

I applied to SMArchS Urbanism What shall I expect :)

Me neither(also arch & urbanism)! This wait is killing me... I've been checking my email every 10 minutes

Rgneee

Me neither, all of the other programs revealed I guess, it's stressful than ever...

AAM44

I cannot believe that they sent all the results already. Only few people posted.. at least here and on gradcafe .. But this is driving me insane seriously....

camilahhb

They only released a few decisions. Idk what to expect! It seems like the competition is high! I'm hoping for the best, because I've had really good acceptances till now. Did you apply to other schools?

AAM44

Yes I did but it is my first choice and it is the most convenient in many ways so I'm really counting on it... ugh It's crazy to think that I might have to wait until April 1 !! I'm unproductive and stressed all the time.

camilahhb

I fully understand ! It is also my first choice and i'm dying here with this wait. A friend that got in in 2015 told me that they only called her around march 20th...

AAM44

Yeah I noticed from gradcafe that some people got the admission letters by the end of March but it wasn't the case last year.. Let's see what happens ...

Literally just got the call from SCI-Arc admissions to notify me of my acceptance, with the official package to be mailed out tomorrow. So thrilled!

Mar 16, 17 6:55 pm
kjkaos

Same here! So excited! Did they mention anything about scholarships to you?

camilahhb

C ongrats! Which program? I applied to the post-professional in design of cities and I'm still waiting!

kjkaos

I got into MArch I, hoping for Advanced Standing. I hope you get good news soon!

connect.12

Hoping for advanced standing in m.arch 1 as well. They said scholarship/financial aid information will be contained in the package tomorrow

architectkim

There is no advanced standing in MArch I at Sci-Arc last time I checked...

kjkaos

I discussed this with the admissions office earlier on - it depends on the student, and if you have a pre professional degree, as I do. I tried to apply to MArch II, but they said I should apply for MArch I and they could give me advanced standing/excuse me from certain classes

connect.12

same here

camilahhb

Denied at MIT. Very disappointing! 

Mar 17, 17 3:47 pm
isms

likewise :( the long wait just made rejection hurt more tbh

banedilbi

Me too :( it did ^

Rgneee

Same, just curious about their expectation...

AAM44

same here....

iiiooo

Did anyone receive mostly rejections? To my surprise, I was only admitted to my "safe" schools. I guess I wasn't as strong of an applicant that I thought. 

Mar 17, 17 4:54 pm
AAM44

Yeah same here haha.... I got admitted to 2 and the rest were rejections. I was surprised to be honest.

camilahhb

admitted to 6, rejected at MIT and Princeton.

AAM44

Congrats Camila! Did you decide where are you going? I need to do some yoga now and get over MIT. So happy the wait is over.

camilahhb

For sure! I really wanna go to GSD, but i can't afford it. They called me and told me they are open for negociation. Rice offered me full tuition, but I don't like their program. So for now, I'll go to the GSD open house and try to negociate, if I don't get to a good deal, I'll end up at Rice.

AAM44

I really hope GSD works out for you. All the best.

Rgneee

I just applied to MIT, Columbia, Princeton, AA and Bartlett. Rejected at MIT , waitlisted at Princeton and still waiting from Bartlett. Just curious, how is your professional backgrounds? Maybe I should work for a year than apply again to MIT.

calebehly

How do you plan on negotiation, you obviously have a full ride from another school to wager, but what is your approach ?

camilahhb

They called me and told me they would find for me to go there if I really wanted to go. Maybe this way is cheap loan, which i wouldn't accept. I interned in 4 offices during undergraduate years and one of them was Machado and Silvetti Associates, really well know in the east cost.The other ones were in Brazil.

Rgneee

I am international, my government has special scholarships for MIT students. Columbia doesnt give any aid for int., AA (drl) will announce its bursary at the end of March. Idk if Princeton gives any scholarships for waitlisted students, still I can try to negotiate. I am recent graduate actually and attended so many short courses and workshops in AA and Bartlett while studying undergrad. I will have an internship for the next three months in Spain in a quite known firm. I have job opportunities in my country but I want to live in US or in UK. MIT was my first choice and I am a bit disappointed. So very confused right now...

Congrats! If you don't mind, who did call from GSD? 

eddace

Has anyone heard from Berkeley? I received a "Brief admittance notification" on March 8th but nothing ever since, they were supposed to send official email on Monday 13th but I haven´t got anything yet.

 Wait list = Rejection ? 

I have been waitlisted at 2 schools, and i am considering them as rejections. How do they normally work out?

Bitter_lemon

Wanna know as well. Also no chance of getting scholarships yea?

toomuchtuna

When is everyone planning to begin negotiating financial aid?  Is the best plan to ask as soon as possible?

Mar 19, 17 6:19 pm
calebehly

wondering the same thing....

arjeny

wondering if it's better to negotiate through email or at open house

where should I negotiate financial aid with? admission office? m.arch department? financial aid office? 

Mar 21, 17 10:30 am
ii003

same question.

Aprism

I'm thinking through the department? On my scholarship offer is says, "USC School of Architecture Scholarship" So I assume through them

isms

Finally got the call from SCI-Arc. They let me know they'll be sending out official acceptance letters and other documentation sometime over the next week.  

Mar 23, 17 1:07 pm

Looking for M.Arch/MUP for Fall 2017. Following are the acceptances to both programs.

SUNY Buffalo (Concurrent) - Scholarship of $5000 combined. Can apply for Assistantship.

UW Milwaukee (Concurrent) - Applied for Assistantship and Scholarship. Will know by Mid-April.

UIUC (Joint) - No funding from Planning. Applied for Scholarship, Fellowship and Assistantship with Architecture.

Is UIUC the choice by default? Any idea what the prospects are of funding and employment on campus?

Any international student heard back from University of Toronto? The wait is too long!
