  1. Post-Acceptance, Pre-Visit

    I call all my professors from my MA program by their first names, but it's been SO DIFFICULT to call my undergrad profs, even those I'm Facebook friends with, by their first names. I guess it's just about the different styles of interaction between undergrad and grad, but it's still so weird to me.
  2. Early Modern Roll Call

    Damn, @mads47, you put my answer to shame!
  3. Early Modern Roll Call

    No worries at all. The way I'm using it, early modern refers to a general period of study--roughly 15th century to 18th.
  4. Early Modern Roll Call

    Oh wow. That sounds intensely cool. I had wondered if you were early modern when I saw your user name. If you don't mind me asking, what schools have you applied to/heard back from? (Feel free to PM me if you'd rather).
  5. Early Modern Roll Call

    Wow, I'm sorry I didn't see the updates here! Good to hear from other early modernists. Congrats on your acceptances, @colin_cloute and @RK092089! I too have been fascinated by Donne's generative verse; it's, at least in part, the focus of my master's thesis.
  6. 2018 Acceptances

    Thank you for sharing! Did you talk to someone in the department?
  7. Okay. Totally new territory. I'm almost certain I know where I'm going. But I'm not exaggerating when I say I'm in a state of disbelief. I've got the offer letter from my top choice in my bag and keep taking it out to confirm it's real. I'm still afraid they're going to contact me and tell me it was an error.
  8. 2018 Acceptances

    Thank you, @klader! I'm still waiting on UGA. It's later than they've notified in the last couple of years. There's a creative writing track up, but I think they notify at different times, Also waiting of waitlist movement. Pretty confident Emory is a bust since I didn't get invited to interview.
  9. Updated Funding Packages

    Okay, awesome! Just wanted to be sure I didn't mess up your work!
  10. Updated Funding Packages

    @Warelin Was it your intention that we update entries for our schools with the 2018 funding packages?
  11. Just got the rejection from Michigan. It went to my "promotions" folder in gmail. Saw someone else had their waitlist notification go to their junk folder. I'm obviously bummed, but also a little relieved--this makes my decision much easier. My southern ass probably would have died in a Michigan winter anyway.
  12. 2018 Acceptances

    Congrats! I think they go off of several factors, but I think area of study is a big part.
  13. Thank you for calling and for sharing this information! Fingers crossed for waitlist news soon! They seem to send the waitlists out about a day after the acceptances.
  14. Have any brave souls reached out to U-Michigan to see if they're through sending out acceptances? I know it's early, but...
  15. 2018 Acceptances

    Yayyy! Congrats! They rejected me the first time I applied. I know at least one person on the acceptances board said they plan to decline; hopefully this helps you! Are you going to the open house? I'm planning on going, so maybe I'll see you there.
