  1. Well keep in touch with me and I can maybe be a resource next cycle! Good luck friend!
  2. That's wonderful news! I accepted at Irvine and am pulling up stakes for California in the fall! Hope you get in!
  3. I'm pretty certain I am California bound. All three are amazing, so it is truly not easy to decide.
  4. Admission offered from UT Austin today! After two years of rejection I have been admitted to all 3 programs I applied to. Keep on keeping on!
  5. Which schools, if you don't mind me asking? I was accepted to UC Irvine and Rice thus far and had no problem just being up front with Irvine about the counter offer from Rice. I don't think anyone will be offended if you leverage. Its how it is done.
  6. They'd be lucky to have you! You are a source of support and all around positive human being, I know that if you want a PhD, it will be there eventually. Thanks for being so cool to everyone this year.
  7. I have found that these meetings tend to be much more about fit than anything specific to your potential dissertation. They each have their own sense of community and they want to know that you will be comfortable there for the next 6 or 7 years . Good luck on your visit! Just enjoy yourself
  8. AHHHHHH! Accepted to Rice! Never imagined I could be in this position of choosing between my two dream programs. UCI vs Rice. Don't give up folks, ever!
  9. Not yet but expecting it any day.
  10. Got an unofficial acceptance to Irvine from my POI late last night! Offers to be sent out very soon! Crazy happy!
  11. I am sociocultural. Yes the classics at UC is aces. I wish you the best of luck!
  12. I'm just finishing my MA at Cincinnati now! I assume that you are a classics major but I can attest to the fact that UC is a decent place to study!
  13. Congrats!
  14. Congrats Auntie GreenEyes-Trombone!
  15. So for anyone who was at UCI interview weekend last week. I was contacted by a fellow interviewee who talked to Dr. Chavez. He told them that the faculty convene this coming Tuesday and offers should be made after that. Not sure how solid this info is, but if it can help ease a little stress, figured it is worth passing it along. Hope you all are well!
