Tennessee Application question

Postby wickerfurniture » Sun Jan 27, 2013 2:56 pm

Hey all,
I didn't see a place to upload a personal statement on the University of Tennessee (Knoxville) application when I submitted. Is there something I'm missing here-seems kind of odd.

I'm not sure about the Tennessee application in particular, but somtimes schools want you to mail in a printed copy of your SOP. Perhaps that is the case in this instance.

Did you email the graduate secretary/coordinator? I'd recommend doing that.

for those of you following, I checked and no personal statement is required, except for when you apply to the chancellor's fellows program which requires a 250 word essay.

Hi everyone,

You can email your personal statement to the department and they will add it to your application. This also applies for a CV or resume.

It's not required, but it should help with your assistantship application.

Has anyone received a funding offer from UTenn yet? The secretary said we should hear by early March and if we don't hear by March 15 then we didn't get it...

Pam said the funding might run late. If you don't hear by 3/15, it doesn't necessarily mean you didn't get funding, it's that the committee is running late. If you're really interested in going to UTK, you can email her and let her know and she should be able to expedite the process for you.

Thanks for letting me know. It is definitely my top choice. I think I will wait for after this week and if we don't hear anything, I'll give her a call. :)

I also wonder if it's taking more time because of the new Chancellor's Fellowship program... so they have to take that into account with the teaching assistantships. :P

Did anyone hear back? I emailed Pam a few weeks ago and she told me they would know by March 8th one way or another, but I still haven't gotten an email from them.

I'm guessing no one has heard back yet? If so please let us know!

Do you mean the Chanceller's Fellowship?

Did you receive the teaching assistantship position as well?

& Did you receive it today? I don't see the post on GC. :(

Yes, I meant the Chanceller's Fellowship,sorry :lol: Yes, it is a combination of TA and Fellowship and it totals to 20.000$
It was on the 11th of March, but there was no other post on GC that day, so I think there will be many more.

Oh okay well congrats!

I was just thinking that if you found out that day, then many more did probably as well since you were a first round offer for it. But they just didn't post on GC.

I wonder if they've already sent out their first round offers for GTA positions as well...

I think that they will be able to tell you if the first round is over, but I think that there would be more posts on GC in that case.

I know that the first round offers for the TA position have not been released yet. I am not sure if the Chancellor's Fellowships were over or not.. I guess all I can do is wait.

I e-mailed her last week and there was no response.

They're on Spring Break starting Friday, so it could be a while.

I just called UTK and she said that they have already made a small number of offers to people and suggested that I call back every week till April 15th because they get acceptances/declines from students from those offers every week periodically. Therefore whoever did not find out didn't get the first round offers... and I asked her if BY April 15th everyone would know what's going on and she said it could even be later...
