I can’t imagine a respectable program that would, sorry! Usually applications are due in Nov.-Jan. and you find out if you are admitted mid-March and usually need to accept or decline by mid-April — at least in my field.

@Umbrelline:  I’m confused — too late for what? I’ve never heard of a PhD program that accepts students/lets students start year-round. All of the programs I applied to, I applied in November, interviewed in January/February, and had to make a decision by April 15. I started June 1.

@Umbrelline:  Have you tried looking at countries that run their academic year differently to the USA such as Australia?

Our academic year is Feb-Nov. But I am fairly certain that applications for programs would probably have closed late last year but you might get lucky if they have had refusals to offers.
