First Acceptance (MA)!
Accepted MA program
I thought I should post about Sunday's interview (for an MA program). It wasn't really an interview in the conventional sense. My POI called and let me know that I've been admitted and that she's meeting with the Chair to discuss funding this week. She asked if I would accept their offer of, basically, full funding minus a couple hundred dollars in the second year. Official details are to follow. An MA program that fully funds?! Yes, please! She also told me happily that my file was eagerly passed around the Department and they are all very excited to work with me. That was so nice to hear... After all this waiting and agonizing, I've been admitted *somewhere*, and somewhere that is excited to work with me!
I still have about 10 PhD programs to hear back from, which is just... agonizing, and I am tempted to email my top 5 and ask about my application status now that I have an admit. I won't, of course. It'd just be nice for planning purposes (and my nerves) for my husband and I to have an idea of where we might be moving to, especially if that place is across the country or Canada.
Thanks for listening to my half news half vent
