  1. This is what I'm repeating to myself as well!!
  2. Anxiety is definitely part of this process. I just wish mine would calm down, lol. I hope folks hear back from people soon! I'm not sure if anyone I know heard from Berkeley yet, either.
  3. I'm waiting to hear back from everyone too; I applied to Chicago, NYU, and Yale as well. Maybe some of us will be in the same cohort! I haven't gotten any interview requests, either. Some places will admit without an interview, though, so don't fret too much.
  4. Congratulations on your acceptance and good luck with your UCLA recruitment meeting! Hope you hear back from the others soon :3
  5. I'm in the same boat as most of you. Not knowing when we'll hear back is the worst. I'm just trying to focus on the fact that the University of Chicago said I would know by mid-February and hoping other schools will notify me around that time. Otherwise, I'm throwing myself into work for the most part and watching way more movies and television than I usually do 😆 Trying to pretend grad school doesn't exist is definitely a challenge right now!
  6. I've been dealing with this a lot myself. I'm trying to distract myself with other projects; I'm about to make a schedule for things I have to do during the day, i.e. work, but then things I want to do, like volunteer hours (I'm doing a lot of online stuff), creative writing, and trying to clear out my regular emails because I have so many. Usually, that is tedious enough for me to want to get away from my inbox, lol. I hope you find something to distract yourself! I'm trying to fully dive into hobbies and hope it helps.
  7. @ClassicsApp21 Yeah, I asked a while ago for folks I know in PhD programs when they heard about their acceptances. Some people said they heard back really early, some people said they heard back right before the deadline to decide, and a few told me they heard AFTER the deadline to choose or not at all. So, it could be all over the place. Also, waitlisted results might not come back until right before the choice deadline, too. We'll see. Crossing my fingers for you, too, @exhaustionandtoast!
  8. Congrats to everyone who have gotten interviews or acceptances already! And, @ClassicsApp21, I'm honestly surprised people are hearing back this soon. I'm not expecting all of mine to come in until mid-March at the earliest (I know about the University of Chicago to say my app was under review but that's the only thing I've heard so far).
  9. Thanks. Honestly, I just had to laugh because I didn't know what else to do about it. Just crossing my fingers and trying to focus on work stuff until I hear back from schools!
  10. Yeah, @TaciturnTales, I can completely understand that! I'm glad that the University of Chicago at least told me the decision timeframe. I personally like being informed but they really need to work on the subject lines so we don't freak out when seeing it. I got an accidental email about acceptance from a program before and that's never fun! The day after we got an apology email about the department mistakenly sending it out. Hopefully, that doesn't happen to anyone else!
  11. So, for anyone who might be wondering, I got an email 2 hours ago from the University of Chicago that my application was under review and that they would be making decisions by mid-February. I'm really nervous, but fingers crossed!
  12. Same, I've not had to do interviews before, so it's a bit nerve-wracking. I'm trying to remember that I would also be interviewing them, and have questions prepared beforehand.
  13. It's definitely way earlier than I've ever heard about hearing back, to be sure. I was certain I'd be white-knuckling it until March, but it looks like I might be finding out a little sooner. For comparison, my first MA application was a rolling admissions, and I applied in early March and heard back maybe four days later. However, my second MA was mid-December and I heard back at the beginning of March, too. I think this year's admission cycle is going to be super wonky because of how everyone's schedules are pretty all over the place in comparison to previous years.
  14. I did see a decent amount of people on Twitter / in FB groups mention they would rather hold off applying in the midst of the pandemic (which is understandable!) so I have a feeling that's a big part of it
  15. I haven't heard from anyone yet; actually surprised people are hearing back so soon!
