  1. So, in what has to be one of the more nail-bitingly late decision releases, GSU finally accepted me to the program. Now to find out if I have any funding...
  2. Northwestern deigned to send out their rejections today. Still waiting on GSU and NYU, but not holding my breath.
  3. So, it's been a while since I last updated this. The main reason for this is that there is little to no news. The adjoining reason is that what news there is likely would only lead to a pretty depressing post. I'll keep it as light and cheerful as I can manage. Since last we met, I've been rejected, either tacitly or directly, from an additional four programs, leaving me with two that have yet to send any information: Georgia State University and New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. I'm not holding my breath that I'll get rejected from UMass-Amherst and then accepted to NYU,
  4. Still waiting on NYU-Tisch Cinema, Amherst, and GSU, but the way things have been going, it's not looking good. Update: Amherst should be releasing decisions by the end of the week/beginning of next week and GSU should be releasing decisions by the end of this month, per the respective graduate admissions folks (in case anyone was curious).
  5. Is that the UT Austin Media Studies PhD? I didn't think they had interviews, but it's possible I'm both wrong and have been all but rejected.
  6. A lot of people who live in Tallahassee with a family and/or kids tend to reside somewhat outside of the city proper. The east side of town and Killearn are popular, if you want to avoid the student-heavy areas.
  7. I received word on Tuesday from the University of Wisconsin at Madison that my application to their Communication Arts - Media and Cultural Studies PhD was rejected. This was disappointing (I ate a pizza and watched The Flash in my darkened room after work, which I'd have done anyway, but that's not the point) but wasn't a huge surprise to me for a few reasons. The first reason was that their MCS division had been shrunk significantly in the previous years and only had about half of the spots available of the next smallest program. This is a trend in Wisconsin (and elsewhere) as higher educati
  8. Media Studies/Television Studies, or at least since the beginning of last year. I have no formal experience in communication or media studies.
  9. I haven't heard anything from any program whatsoever. I am thinking, however, that Wisconsin-Madison and Northwestern are out just based on what I've seen in terms of acceptances here on the forum. Unfortunately, I can't start planning anything yet, other than what my plans B, C, and D will be in the event of another shutout. Edit: Just got my rejection notice from Wisconsin-Madison.
  10. I'm getting so many new songs to thrash to while obsessively rechecking application statuses!
  11. I still haven't heard anything from any of my programs, but that's more or less to be expected. At least until the first week of February or so. In the meantime, I shall provide for you a playlist of songs to listen to while waiting. This is best enjoyed while waiting for admissions committees to render decisions, for pizzas to arrive, for the triage nurse to call you up, or waiting for the world to change (that song will, fortunately, not be featured here). 1. Elevator Operator - Courtney Barnett (For when you're having those existential issues) 2. Waiting Room - Fugazi (I am a pa
  12. I followed all of my POIs who have pages, so I may have preemptively piqued and crushed their interest XD
