  1. Committed to the University of Washington :^)
  2. I think that if you have at least a year or two of experiencing working PT while in school FT (although undergrad intensity might not measure up to grad school intensity), and that if the thought of working for the entirety of your studies at WF is somewhat exciting rather than daunting, then go for it. Sometimes it is energizing to have more on your plate/to have responsibilities outside of school/academia, but only you know what kind of energy you want this next stretch of your life to bring : )
  3. Today I received notice of acceptance to the MA program at NYU (as well as rejection from PhD). The offer comes with 60% of tuition covered, no help with fees/registration, and no stipend/benefits. Will most likely turn down, but happy to finally hear some news from this school!!
  4. Is anyone else still waiting on UC Davis, NYU, or Brown PhD? Still haven't heard a thing from any of these programs ­čĄĺ
  5. Still waiting on UC Davis, Brown, and NYU for English PhD - although acceptances, rejections, and some waitlists have been out for a minute ­čĄĺ

  7. Last year I applied to one MA program abroad via Fulbright, and did not advance past the Semi-Finalist round (but was admitted to the graduate program without any real funding, and therefore could not attend). I was definitely bummed, but ended up applying to/being admitted to a one-year AmeriCorps Tutor program in lieu of grad school. Highly recommend this experience if you are looking to: gain more "hard" workplace experience/skills; potentially move to a new city for a year; meet/make new friends and expand your networking circle; and learn a lot about yourself and your goals in the process. I think this addition to my resume/CV definitely helped my applications. My specific program includes housing/utilities, stipend, and a $5-6k education award upon fulfillment of the one year commitment which can be applied to loans and/or future schooling. Happy to chat with anyone looking for opportunities like this! Also look into this potential opportunity, for those in the Los Angeles area: https://www.thebroad.org/dap
  8. Hello! I started my first full-time job in August of last year, and my application season felt impossibly overwhelming at times. That being said - I felt like I absolutely covered all of my bases by the time I hit 'submit.' My biggest advice (especially if you are applying to more than a few programs): create your own handwritten chart/checklist for deadlines and program requirements, as early as possible. This really helped me feel grounded/organized, and prevented me from feeling frantic. I can share my layout if that would help!
  9. @The Wordsworthian thank you!! maybe we can PM soon about offer details?
  10. Also my first acceptance yesterday! congratulations : - )
  11. @mwils15 congratulations to you as well! : ) Broad focus is Postcolonial and Transnational Literatures; more specific focus is magical realism/feminism in Latin American and Afro-Latinx fiction, poetry, and performance : ))
  12. Today I was rejected by Columbia (email to check portal), waitlisted at CUNY (a nice email with an invitation to an open house mid-March), and accepted to University of Washington with funding! I'm overwhelmed :,)
  13. I also have not heard back from any programs yet! : / I see that some Columbia rejections have gone out, so not sure if continued radio silence represents a glimmer of hope for that program.
