You identified great attributes of the UVA program that are attractive, and I would only add that there are certain professors, research opportunities and resources that are available at UVA. For example, they have great projects relative to food systems, preservation of culture and watershed management, which would all contribute to my area of interests. In addition, they have resources in other departments that would support my interests, and it's a Urban and Environmental Planning program, the only one of its kind.
I'll do a rosary for both of us today!
Do most programs call you?
Received acceptance via email from Jayne Orlowski.
No mention of funding.
I am.. and that's scary! I applied to seven schools out of fear that I wouldn't be accepted to one. Surprisingly, I will have to make a decision between a few schools. Still waiting to hear from UVA and UCLA before I make any firm decisions. Quite certain I won't go to UM unless they offer financial assistance.
Good luck to you allygo!
Just got accepted to Penn!!!
I checked the admission status page, and sure enough, there was a letter of acceptance!

use email/password used to submit application, and GOOD LUCK!
In at UNO no official funding yet, but they did say I "may be eligible" for a $12,000/yr scholarship and assistantships pending.
Also, a quick question for anyone who'd know. I'm applying for an assistantship at Ball State (they have you apply after acceptance) and one of the requirements of the application was to state your "professional education objectives" and "strategies for their achievement." Is that more or less stating what level of education I hope to achieve and how I plan to do it (ie- full time student, ect.)
No UCLA decision me me neither. I applied in mid-december.
I got in a UIC. I most likely won't attend. I got a scholarship, but it won't cover everything. As I recall, you have to have to commit and then you are considered for other funding.
Also, no word on UCLA. I'm pretty sure that they roll those out gradually.
Congrats to Owego and all others! I checked UCLA...no decision
I also was accepted at UIC today with tuition waiver and stipend for a TA/RA position. However I am responsible for the CUPPA department differential tuition of $5000, effectively reducing my stipend by more than half.
I posted this not to wave in your face Queenducky21, but to let you know that more funding may not be on the way.
I emailed them and checked on funding, as I was curious and I had remembered some things from the Open House in 2010. It appears as if they have changed some of the funding for this year. The biggest thing is the addition of the Burnham Fellowship which covers 1/3 of tuition. In the email I received later today it disused how to apply for RA/ TA positions.
I am not sure if I will try and secure funding as I have an offer from another school (fully funded) which suites my interests more.
This question is for QueenDucky21: On a different thread somewhere, you had mentioned you found something on UIUC's website or admission letter about recommended reading and/or software. I was wondering where you found that and if you could possibly share that link? I also got into U of I and couldn't find it on their website.
Thanks a bunch!
Since I live in Bulgaria, I can't make the open house. So they sent me a link to last years presentations. Will you be going to the open house?
