  1. I think there's something to be said for the well-written SOP, though. Do you have a clear vision for what you want to do? Did you research the schools to which you applied to determine if faculty shared your interests? Does your writing sample engage with those interests? Sometimes articulating these things well in that little introduction eclipses bad test scores/etc....but it's also a total crapshoot.
  2. Hey! Anyone here the Stanford interviewee on the results page? good luck!
  3. While some people were outright rejected, others got emails encouraging them to have their application materials forwarded to the next cycle (for free), because they ended up accepting 0 new students......thickly plot, eh?
  4. here’s a question! is anyone out there from last year’s stanford havoc? did you take the free re-apply offer? curious to find out how it all goes down this year. good luck if so!
  5. i'm also implying rejections from harvard, yale, and michigan, since there are reported acceptances on the board for all three..... D;
  6. @dilby ummm...can we collectively brainstorm the nature of this imminent tattoo? can you tattoo a meme? is this antithetical to Memeness?
  7. @sugiliteCONGRATS!!!!!!! @trytostay ughhhh--a rejection after an interview is So Much Worse than a flat-out rejection. Solidarity.
  8. I have the same 3 pending as you, plus a few more besides....it's Debilitating. Debilitatiiiiiiiinnnngggg...but i've been very lucky to have received some good news already. got any ideas re: when we might hear from some of those? it Must be imminent?!?!
  9. @itslit oh interesting, are you trying to transfer from one phd to another? how's that process been? seems like it could be stressful! As far as comparing schools go, I feel pretty in the dark. it seems impossible to know how great a school will be for you until your actually a student there. I feel like we've hit pique purgatory. I can't tell now if silence is good or bad...
  10. @amphilanthus love those sentiments. This purgatory feels SO precarious--everytime I try to get zen and let the chaos take a backseat, some email or phone call explodes the calm. Making these decisions seems impossible; mainly, the part where you have to inevitably say 'no' to something. and the part where you have to totally upheave life-as-you-know-it to take the next step--whatever that ends up being. Jeeeeshhhhhh also.....i can't help but fall in love with the people at every program......or...i can't help comparing the ''friendliness'' of their respective emails to each other, then f
  11. Really, you don’t have to worry! I was accepted into both grad programs i’ve done with no visits, and no expectations for visits. the ND thing is an anomaly.
  12. finally get to join the rejection train ain't even maaaaaddddd (ut austin comp lit bye forever)
  13. @placeinspace don't leave us yet! there's still hope! we need your banter!
  14. Hey fam~ There doesn't seem to be many of us out there, but I'm curious to hear how everyone's school selection//admissions process is going. Do you put much stock in the NRC rankings for comp lit programs ( https://www.chronicle.com/article/NRC-Rankings-Overview-/124718 ) ? Which programs are you deliberating between? Does anyone have thoughts on UMass Amherst, U Oregon, UC Santa Cruz, etc...? Good luck!
