  1. I was an undergrad English major at Brown and I took two grad seminars there so if you have any specific questions you want to PM me about I can try to answer them!

    @toxicmoss If both programs are genuinely interesting to you, then there's really nothing you can do but wait to make a decision until after visits. you really get an enormous amount of information out of them that i don't think you can get any other way.

    Accepted at Rutgers got a nice phone call from a POI. funny to me that i did well with traditional English programs and poorly with interdisciplinary programs when i thought it would be the opposite.

    Just got accepted at Penn! Got a call from the DGS, and he said he has more phone calls to make, so there's still hope!

    The manipulative language in that email was so transparent it made me mad

    @JB91 This thread is specifically for people who applied to Literature and Rhet/Comp programs--you will probably have more luck on the Education forum!
