    The Final Countdown

    Thanks for starting this! Accepted UVA's offer last week.

    Congrats to the UGA MA admit! Let me know if you have any questions about the program or Athens, and I'm happy to tell you all about it. Has anybody gotten good news recently? I'm still waiting on a handful of schools.

    I'm also waiting on BU -- I see they interviewed someone earlier this month, but it wasn't me. I didn't apply to Michigan, but I hope you'll hear soon. The decisions do feel like they're dragging along this year, but maybe that's because we're stressed out! Nope, no word yet on my end...

    Thanks! I was not interviewed, so I don’t think I’ll be accepted. Miracles do happen, though. Good luck to you too!

    Yes, but not optimistic about it.

    Not yet, but I’m waiting for them too... Hopefully in the next week or so, but that might be wishful thinking!

    I'm definitely thinking about going! I would need funding, naturally, but hopefully I was enthusiastic enough in my response email to show my interest We'll see what other news I get in the next few weeks, but Seattle is a definite possibility. Fingers crossed you'll hear from Cambridge soon!

    Holy cow, just got an out-of-the-blue acceptance to University of Washington. No funding, but it's a place that wants me!!!

    It’s still so early! Give it a few more weeks. We should start hearing more in February, I think.

    Wishful thinking ?

    Some perspective that a professor friend gave me: nobody can predict what specifics these departments are looking for this year (or ever, really). I fall on the Latin side of the field; maybe the places I applied matriculated 4 Latinists last year, so they're stocking up on Hellenists this cycle. What's keeping me (moderately) sane is looking at it from that angle. Essentially, it's not you, it's them!

    I haven't heard from Columbia either. Fingers crossed for everyone, and congrats to those with interviews/acceptances!

    That’s where I did my undergrad! Let me know if you have any questions about the people/program/city in general!
