  1. It might be silly, but maybe you’ll have a more defined moment of clarity when all your decisions are in? Right now you’re still sort of in limbo in a strange way. The acceptances you have don’t feel “real” in until you can put a check or an x next to *all* the ones in your list.
  2. It certainly seems that way! I might send you a PM when I feel up to really thinking about it. I promised myself I’d only do two cycles and then move on for the sake of my mental health and all-around pragmatism.
  3. And with that, my season closes. After two cycles of shut outs, I want to be very grown up and mature about all this (like I said I was going to be). But I am just so sad.
  4. Okay, but are you as excited about this A24/BRON adaptation of Sir Gawain and The Green Knight—with DEV PATEL!!! as Gawain—as I am???
  5. Completely out of reacts because y'all are all so marvelous: congrats to *everyone* and fingers crossed for everyone else!
  6. Nope. I have three schools remaining to hear from: one is an implied rejection, one is a huge stretch, and one I just don't know. This is my second cycle. I've spent a lot of time discussing with my best friend and partner about what it would mean to be shut out a second time and what that would mean moving forward. I feel good with my life where it is now, even if I don't get in, given my career and my current career prospects. It will suck to move on from "the dream," but we don't always get to choose our paths.
  7. Should feel grateful in some small way as Davis’ rejection letters are notoriously rude af.
  8. Fingers crossed for everyone hoping to hear this week! I’ve got two implied rejections and two unknowns left on the board that I most likely won’t hear back from until the last week in February. Already planning for a second-cycle shut out and making moves to improve upon on my back up back up plans.
  9. Rejected from Chicago (as expected, given that acceptances are already out), but I did not get referred to their MAPH—which I expected to receive since they offered it to me last cycle. Hmm.
  10. I got two rejections from Austin! One actual email and one portal notification. I was like, wow, y’all didn’t want me that much? Well okay then!
  11. He told me roughly the same thing when we talked about applying there. Sorry if this is creepy, but we went to the same school. I figured you might have the same thesis advisor as I had for my undergrad thesis. I was also really disappointed by my Austin rejection. Trying to keep my spirits up, though.
  12. I feel pretty gutted waking up to see Riverside notifications on the board. Gonna log all the way off this weekend. See y’all, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
  13. Y’all, the Rice rejection letter is so sweet and kind, I’m almost not even mad they don’t want me.
  14. HS English educator here (though not in NY): there are looooots of ways to get into the classroom. This link might help: http://www.highered.nysed.gov/tcert/certificate/certprocess.html
