  1. I'm chairing the irish literature panel at SCMLA this year, and the deadline has been extended until April 30, if you're interested! Also, you are so my kind of person. I would love to talk more! I've been working pretty heavily with Lady Gregory and her influence on literary and political thought, but want to hear more about your work if you're willing 😊

    I'm about to say yes to a program and I'm suddenly panicking. SEND HELP.
  4. I have.... worse GRE scores than yours, and the program that I'll likely be attending is the ONLY program to which I applied that gave a crap about GREs...and I'm still accepted with full funding. I was told my CV and writing sample/SOP literally negated my crap scores.

    I keep getting emails from schools-that-rejected-me's graduate colleges with information about welcome days and grad orientations and being on campus. But why? I was rejected, and now I'm sad about them again. You'd think the grad colleges would've gotten the memo by now.

    CONGRATULATIONS @Bopie5!!
  9. I know I'll be sitting in on at least two classes one day, and this may be a stupid question, but can I.....participate? or do I have to just sit there and listen?

    that was me. I got that email last week and i'm like "uh ok" I also have a visit coming up at SIUC. I proposed two dates since they encourage a visit, but don't require one, and I. AM. NERVOUS.

    I don't think so, at all. I got into several funded MAs a few years ago without first having conferences, or an honors thesis, etc. I worked hard during my MA to go to conferences, write a thesis, and eventually published one of my thesis chapters in a good journal in my field. Don't compare your timeline to anyone else's!! That's my biggest piece of advice.

    I was admitted to Nebraska, but waitlisted for funding. They said there's at least one person before me left on the waitlist, and that they're just not sure yet which way it'll go.

    So I've been officially accepted by SIUC with funding (the letter has some weird wording that I am trying to decipher), and have emailed Nebraska to see where they're at after the first round offer deadline. I mentioned to Nebraska that I'd been accepted with funding elsewhere, but holding off notifying them in hopes UNL funding would come through. Did I just overstep or say something stupid? 👀😶

    waiting for the official letter, but from Southern Illinois - Carbondale - "You have been admitted, and we plan to offer you a teaching position as a Graduate Assistant. I will send you the offer letter and details soon." !!!!! This is where my favorite scholar (should I have a favorite scholar? what if she thinks i'm a dumbass? what if i'm actually a dumbass?) teaches and where one of my mentor/LOR writers earned their PhD!
