  7. I did it in the second, mainly because I was feeling a whole lot of varied feelings, and wanted to give myself time to process a bit before saying much more than “thanks for the good news, I remain very interested in the program!” However, I see no reason why those questions would be inappropriate in your initial email. I think you should do what your gut tells you! Truth is I think we have a lot less control/impact on these waitlist decisions than we’d like to think

    You have a lot to be proud of, having worked through this whole hellacious process and seeing it through to the end. You will dominate next cycle, I have faith!!!

    I tend to think of everyone in English as a sort of fairy godperson rooting for students (I had an amazing experience with my department in undergrad), so please take my use of the word “lurking” as a gentle rib

    To any lurking English professors: please make yourself known so we can pepper you with very annoying questions like what GRE score would make our applications failure-proof and also make not-so-subtle appeals to you to wield your power for good on our current, clearly not failure-proof applications. Thanks.

    "Enganglement" made me giggle. I'm kind of gangly and very clumsy so I'm pretty sure I experience enganglement on a daily basis.

    I like to think UCLA burned my $105 bill by bill while eating tacos and laughing at some error I didn't notice in my writing sample. But I'm dramatic...

    Last year after being shut out I kept having dreams that I'd applied to some east coast school and completely forgotten about it until they emailed the first day of class asking where I was...

    Same. I know it was always highly unlikely but I really wanted UCSB...would prefer to just have that band aid ripped off right now, please.

    Favorite Rejection Quotes from the Results Page

    University Of Michigan English, PhD (F19) Rejected via E-mail on 13 Feb 2019 I 13 Feb 2019 report spam GPA is from MA. Next in the seminal series of coping with rejection: cry in the shower, gain 5 pounds, have an icecream tummy, talk to oneself in the mirror, and then go back into the dark abyss of applying again.

    Considered for M.S. instead of PhD?

    I've gotten into two MAs where I applied for a PhD. I'd say wait and see what happens. Good luck!
