  1. @jnp809 Congrats! Hope you love it!
  2. Those who were among the second phase of UCSD applicants, the ten or so who were under consideration, did you receive a very formal and generic rejection? I thought for as long as I was potentially under consideration there, it would be more than a generic rejection. Oh well. Ohio is all that's left this year for me. Last I heard, they were still considering the third slot. But congrats and best of luck to all those accepted.
  3. @jnp809 thanks! I hope so too.
  4. @jnp809 Congrats! So happy for you.
  5. @jnp809 Thanks for the info. Keep us updated with Ohio!
  6. Anyone hear from Iowa? Also I know UCSD has already decided but still haven't heard anything. Anyone else in the same boat? Also I had an interview with Ohio yesterday. Going back to refreshing my inbox constantly.
  7. Whatever it means, it sounds good! It sounds like he likes your work and wants to talk about it. Who knows what's after? But that's great! Congrats
  8. So much positive energy and good news. Congrats to all those accepted. So excited for everyone to kick ass in the fall. And those still waiting, I'm there with you.
  9. That's great @lrb0192! Congratulations!
  10. Already very happy you're here And yes @jnp809 Please vent. I was in the same boat. I requested a comment from Yale via phone call and didn't hear back until a week later with my rejection letter, which I guess was their response? Either way I know what you mean.
  11. @jnp809 Sorry to hear about the Brown rejection. I know it sucks. Just got my Catholic rejection today. Not that it was a top choice but still... gotta stick it out
  12. @Lfb236 Thanks for the Iowa info! @esfg1 Did Northwestern tell you they would make decisions by X date?
  13. @Boseph16 I haven't heard anything and haven't seen anything posted elsewhere about them being in contact. You are right, judging by past results, they typically reach out today/by now. @faro555 I had asked about updates on MFA Draft and someone had already called them and they received that info.
  14. @jnp809 This year, more than any other, I've seen the benefits of reaching out. Especially on MFA draft. I would go ahead and reach out. It never hurts. Give them a call. Also those curious about UCSD, I heard UCSD has offered it two people. One has said yes and the other is unknown. So if no rejection you (we) are out of ten under consideration.
  15. @faro555 Thanks for reaching out. That's so good to hear.
