  1. Congratulations! Great news.
  2. Declined an offer to Duquesne. Good luck! (I also removed myself from the wait lists at BU and TAMU)
  3. Congratulations! Glad that you had such a positive meeting!
  4. If you can, I'd still visit. I'm visiting a couple of departments who can't help fund the travel. Luckily I'm very close to both of them, so the cost isn't too high. So if their assistance is enough to make it affordable for you to go, I'd still say it's worth it and not necessarily too hard a strike against the dept.
  5. That's wonderful! Congratulations!!
  6. I have no clue. I provided like five to the first department I visited, and two of them were unavailable so that still didn't wind up being enough -_-... But yeah, I would still probably say about five is reasonable?
  7. ouch. For my part, I'll be declining as I know, but most of my decision is coming down to visits, so that takes a while. Good luck to everyone on waitlists! Pulling for you for U-Mass, @Dialectica !
  8. I didn't wind up applying but it was on my list for a while. There are some pretty cool people working there Good luck! (also... Yeah. New Orleans!)
  9. Same with Oregon. I got offers to a couple of schools higher on your list and rejected from UNM / purgatory in oregon. I think it comes down to fit quite a bit more than I had realized.
  10. And with a rejection from CUNY, that's all folks (with some presumed rejections). On to decision time. Good luck to everyone wrapping up this process!
  11. I think this is the first time I've actually laughed out loud at a post on here. Congrats on your success and hope you get an offer at Syracuse in the end of all this! (Or preferably a bit before the end ;))
  12. "Middling chance" sounds pretty promising to me! Good luck
  13. lol that's a feat. I'm not quite as quickly. Just into season 3. But I'm also working on a few shows at once :).
  14. Well-placed gif right here. Well done. But also that's awesome.
  15. Woo hoo! Congratulations. That's wonderful news!
