  1. Omg you are making me tear up 🥰 Thank you!
  2. Awwww, thank you. This board is so awesome and I have to thank each of you for making it that way. Ya'll are life savers.
  3. Thank you everyone! To think 24 hours ago I was walking the campus feeling absolutely certain I'd flunked the interviews 😂
  4. Just got a call from Dr. Sae Saue offering me admission to SMU
  5. Thank you! It’s so hard to tell. I should hear Friday though!
  6. Totally unrelated but the hotel SMU put interviewees up at is also being used for some kind of last round regional audition for Project Runway (overhead in hotel tavern yesterday). now as I’m waiting in the lobby for my shuttle to the airport I’m surrounded by over the top dressed creative types and the most obvious production assistant I’ve ever seen running around between them. I’ve been watching old seasons of PR the last few weeks trying to distract myself from the stress of waiting for results and now I’m trying to figure out if this is a good sign or a really, really bad one 🤣
  7. Posting for future students: if you have questions about SMU’s campus visit/interview process, PM me
  8. The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat Actually came up in several faculty interviews today at SMU so that was fun!
  9. 2019 edition! I definitely wrote Penn State instead of UPenn on my SoP for that school. Three times. Was able to correct it last minute but holy hell I still feel ashamed. Wrote “additionally” twice in the last paragraph of my SoP for Loyola. Got waitlisted though so I guess they didn’t care? Better to think that than to think it was the mistake that moved me from the admit to the waitlist pile, which of course it couldn’t be. Of course 😛
  10. @NoodleKidoodle thank you so much for the info! I teared up reading it because I’m so excited for grad school (and clearly the biggest nerd alive). Getting insight into a typical week is so helpful!
  11. Bumping this because I feel like there's a lot of good advice and might be helpful to folks in the next month or so.
  12. I asked about funding and was told there might be some but they don’t know yet, and I should just book. Luckily my mom had a ton of air miles and Hilton points so my flight and stay came to about $20 out of pocket. I wonder though if current grad students might be willing to put someone up?
  13. Just booked my flight and hotel! Thank you mom for your air miles! Lets get a drink GC friends!
  14. Everything is still so up in the air for me...I'm just hoping I have a choice to make. Every program I'm waitlisted to/interviewing at have their real pros and cons. Honestly I just hope I get to go somewhere. Ireland is seriously the best! I've got my fingers crossed for you, of course. I'm going to send you my 2019 poetry doc! I really loved getting your feedback last time. @warelin I fully plan on remaining active here whether I get in this time or not. But I doubt I'll ever be the wealth of info and encouragement you have been! I'll try my best, though.
  15. Heart warmed also!!! Please keep us (me) updated on your plans for the next year. Especially if you go to Ireland (have you been before??? I’ve been a few times and it’s legit the best place in the world imo). Also if you want to keep swapping creative work and edits, I’m super down!
  16. @Bopie5 and @jadeisokay can I just say I missed you both and I’m really happy to see you both back here.
  17. Got into the ma and waitlisted at the PhD as well. Coming from Cali so not sure yet if I can make it work but I’m going to try to be there! Would love to meet you both!
  18. You’re a freaking gem and impressive as hell and you and your boots have nothing to worry about.
  19. That’s just weird. Is your app status still pending? It was just an email to check the portal this am so I assumed they would have sent it to everyone.
  20. Finally got that UConn rejection. Just waiting on you now, UO and Berkeley. Gimme your politely-worded yet utter lack of interest!
