    Now if Santa Cruz could send me their (also strangely late) rejection I can finally be free!

    Right? I'm just a little salty but mostly amused. Maybe "pleaseure" is a new word meaning it's very much not been a pleasure? Like, "please(don't apply again)-ure"?

    I came back just to talk about "pleaseure" 😂 Honestly though

    I have written that they typically reject in the first week of March, so I'm not expecting that sweet sweet rejection until next week, probably. But yes. Just give it to me!

    I reached out to Brandeis to see what was up with people who hadn't been accepted, rejected, or waitlisted. They said while they've sent out those notifications, people still waiting are on a waitlist, just not ranked high enough to be notified. They said they'll follow up in the next few weeks as decisions are finalized.
  6. Thanks! I suppose I should probably just call.
  7. I've accepted the shut out, but is anyone still at radio silence with Brandeis? I'm confused that they've sent rejections, acceptances, waitlist, and more rejections, and I've still heard nothing. Do they foist people off on their MA?

    Thank you! I have learned a good bit. I think trying next year when I'm not trying to finish my MA will let me have a much stronger application! I'm still really into the land idea! I'm stoked if more people start looking into it. Maybe I'll just start a humanities commune somewhere instead of reapplying! I think so! I'm still processing it and making a plan, but I know a PhD is what I want to do, so I'll likely be back!

    Not yet, but I'm counting it as implied since they've sent acceptances and wait list notifications.

    With the sudden UW result I'm solidly a shut out this year. Best of luck to everyone still in the process!

    I feel this in my soul.

    I'd like to say I'm ready but I'm not actually sure I am

    I agree that it's more complicated than not. Finishing my MA at an unknown school, I've had many talks with professors about how to overcome the "deficit" of where I went to school, and, well, that's clearly worked out for me. I also think there can be, in some situations, a connection between schools with more "prestige" and their ability to prepare students for the admissions process/PhD study.
  14. Jumping the gun the tiniest bit, but I'm calling Brandeis for me. Now it's just the long wait for UW and I'm done for this cycle.
