  1. 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.

    UT Austin Acceptances

    Can we get a roll call of who accepted for the fall?!
  3. 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!
  4. Preordered. Congrats!!! I really think you’re gonna love it! Money ain’t nothing but a thang

    Turned Down Offers Thread

    Yes! I really think money isn’t everything if you can’t bear to live or work in a place for 5+ years.

    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.

    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. Accepted off the waitlist at UW Madison!!

    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!

    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!

    im in the same boat as @alexisnj and @tacocat211 I called the department today and was told to email the DGS. But I had a feeling the person I was speaking to was looking at my file and could see that I was rejected and just didn’t want to tell me over the phone. I am basing this off of nothing concrete except for the way she said my name and confirmed it and told me to email. Lol
