    Forgot to mention my POI in my personal statement for Berkeley. She's actually the one I want to work with the most, so I'm beating myself up over the implied rejection

    Also got waitlisted, and same lol. It feels good at least to know what's going on.
  5. I feel strangely relieved. Finally, the wait's over!

    Hi, fellow international applicant! I also applied to Rutgers and unfortunately haven't heard anything from them either. 😥 It's so, so nervewrecking. I really hope they would get back to us soon.

    Yeah, that's the case for me too. There's so many things I have to do, but I can only do them after I hear back from all the schools I've applied to. But oh gosh, what a cutie!! Please tell her ai love her.

    Not going to lie, one of the benefits of being an international applicant for me is never having to go through that, because as expensive as it is to travel to United States, I would die if every phone call could potentially be from a university I applied to. 😫

    Another Victoranist here! Focus is also on race and empire and queer theory.

    I actually did my MA at Penn, and my adviser there told me that the admissions committee wouldn't be making any final decisions until two weeks into February, so you might be hearing from them soon! Best of luck to both of you!

    My MA advisor who is on the adcom said the same thing. He specifically stated that, as much as the people there may like to work with me, they would automatically not consider any application from their MA students to avoid the program becoming too insular. This is specific to the program, however, so it definitely depends.

    Some gifts from my home country! Which I already gave when I left the States, so I just sent some emails stating my appreciation for everything they did again.

    Getting Out of Academia

    Not too sure! Ideally, I'd be in a position to get an academic job in the States or back home when I graduate, but if worse comes to worst, I can resume work as a translator again.
