  1. Hey 2020 Cafe-ers and Lurkers, I was a 2019 applicant and am currently attending UT Austin. I haven’t been super active since my season, so I apologize for not being up to date on the conversations/threads so far. That said, I wanted to make a plug for people interested in studying Af-Am/African diaspora lit. In my experience, I feel like UT isn’t a place people immediately think of as having strengths in those areas, but I am really happy with the resources I’ve found here and wanted to share that! So if anyone has questions or is slightly interested, feel free to DM me—I’m happy to answer questions, chat, or exchange materials. Godspeed to everyone working on getting their applications in!
  2. Hillary Schute is at Northeastern in Boston! I know she has several students who work on comics and graphic novels, though it is through the English graduate program.
  3. Can we get a roll call of who accepted for the fall?!
  4. Just sent off decisions from the Madison airport as my plane is boarding. Literally. Turns out my user icon was prophetic—burnt orange all the way. Headed to UT Austin in the fall!
  5. Preordered. Congrats!!! I really think you’re gonna love it! Money ain’t nothing but a thang
  6. Yes! I really think money isn’t everything if you can’t bear to live or work in a place for 5+ years.
  7. Who are you emailing? I’ve found the grad coordinator to always get back within 24 hours or so, but I have been ghosted by some other people outside of the English department
  8. Removing myself from the waitlists at Pitt and U of Delaware.
  9. This is not related to anything but just thought, the color behind my user name icon letter is burnt orange. Is it a sign or the decision I should make? What if our randomly assigned colors are subconsciously a sorting hat of sorts?
  10. Thank you so much! That’s so kind of you to say! I can visit, though I am not sure if I can make it work with my job. I have given myself until Friday to make a final decision, so will definitely say more definitively what I’m doing then!
  11. Just sent off emails to decline UNC Greensboro and U of Alabama offers and additional fellowships. Best of luck to those interested in these programs!
  12. Please collect and share all info you glean!
  13. At least it means we’re qualified and not an instant reject! Have any rejections been posted from UNC yet though? Fingers crossed for us both!
