Hi everyone,

So I was admitted to a PhD program in Political Science in one research oriented public university in the US (top 30). Got a funding offer - TA, stipend, all the bonuses, in-state tuition waiver, But they said they won't cover out-of-state tuition - and there is no way I can establish residency because I am an international applicant. Is it some form of soft rejection, or is it a common thing?

Hi there, Hope you got the answer on this. I don't think soft rejections are a thing - it's just the rules if it's the rules. It should have been clear at the onset though. Good luck.

It looks like a soft rejection. In UK they used to say they have no funding for non EU applicants. It looks like the US version

well it's not a soft rejection... to me that implies that you are rejected because you are deemed not good enough (i.e., the rejection part) but they say it in a soft way. this sounds more like you do not meet the criteria for funding. so you need to apply elsewhere.
