  1. Ok I have absolutely very little evidence for this besides a strong gut feeling, but I feel like Chicago is gonna send out their invites tomorrow afternoon. It seems that in past years, their various notification waves happened on Fridays and it would make sense that they would want to send everything out right before the weekend so that they don't have to deal with a wave of panicked and upset calls right away. Again, this is just my unfounded theory based mostly on the fact that I really hope Chicago hasn't sent out interview invites yet.

    On one of my SOPs, I ended my last sentence of my last paragraph with a comma....I didn't realize until I was rewriting it for my next school. It's hopefully a forgivable error but I had a flush of mortification when I realized.

    You're welcome! I don't think it was an intentional decision. From what I've garnered, their original system crashed completely in October. o.O

    Don't stress about that! UCLA is also displaying mine as "Not Recieved" and I sent them in about 4 months ago. I doubt it has anything to do with the English department specifically. In November, when the application portal was down, I spoke on the phone with someone in the admissions department and someone in the English department. Apparently, it has been nonstop tech drama for UCLA admissions this year, and both people I spoke with were extraordinarily kind but sounded a little stressed out.
  5. Hi, I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question and I am new to grad cafe, but I was looking through past years' threads and I saw that some schools interviewed people before making their final decisions. Is this common? Does anyone know which schools are planning to interview this year? My apologies if this has already been asked and answered. (:
