    Interviews/Acceptances/Rejections Fall 2019

    I told my work husband I am no longer allowed on grad cafe because it makes me crazy! He caught me on there this morning and threw highlighters at me (she says while checking site in ladies room).
  2. I too saw all the history admits... I said some kind of prayer after that! Is anyone going to NCBS???

    No acceptances so far..

    I have had sooo many temper tantrums. By nature I am impatient (I'm working on it) and incredibly anxious. Though I am not an international student (which I see a lot of people on this thread are) I just wanted to chime in and say I've been walking around feeling like the worst possible version of myself. Why does no one want me? On paper I've realized I'm not so amazing. I had no idea until I came to this site! I'm the top person in my masters program but also an older student because I took a ten year hiatus working like full blown Cappy and finishing a novel on the side. I wish we could all just feel good and wanted -as though our lives and the possibilities were endless. I hope none of us gives up even though the rejections were nothing I could have prepared for. Thank you for this!

    @DuBois & @ALieNNatioN .... I opened a special credit card just for this... worth it, but I wish I had known about this site before hand. A lot of support has been found here -a good resource with people far more intelligent than I (as far as educational endeavors go. HELLO GRE's, come take me demon). Perhaps forming a little over-the-next-few-months-to-get-our-sh*&t-together group?!? But hey, we've been able to see people who have been/are in our position get that notification that changed their lives... and to me that's priceless, motivating even. And maybe there is still hope! I know I'm still waiting on Mississippi (and other official rejections) to come in. More (im)patiently waiting to follow.

    Vanderbilt and Albany sent out notifications of acceptances but crickets over here. It's like I don't exist -am I a ghost (I've asked this question far too often in life so far). What does this mean?

    Money and time my friend. I got my life together way too late (by my stAndards alone).

    Me too! It was either a PhD program or buy sperm and finally become a mama. Educational pursuits did me so dirty!

    SUNY Albany you say... oh god. Terror ensues. How is this life?! I didn't hear a peep and I have class there tomorrow.
  10. Vanderbilt was the only one I applied to and nothing. What I've seen is that they take a bit... expecting end of Feb. Not sure about the other ones you have listed. Good Luck!

    This is upsetting. Nobody likes me, schools, men, my mother... they don't call, or write, I'm invisible. Congrats to you though. Knock'em dead.

    They want that money! It is obviously quite clever. Maybe they were hoping that you would be hypnotized by the prestige the name carries and talk yourself and family into finding a way to pay because hello, we are columbia! I can't say that if Yale did that to me that I wouldn't take the bait... But I am an INTJ Cappy : we aren't necessarily good people.

    Just assumed I didn't make the first, possibly second, round of interviews as I've heard it happens in waves to find people. I'm part of the combined program however, leading with African American studies so I'm not sure how that shakes out. I have to be accepted by both programs so I've basically just been holding out hope... And feeling silly about it at the same time.

    Wait, what?! I'm sorry, but that just brought the loudest most obnoxious laugh from deep inside my big old body... I woke up all my animals! Is that what they're doing now?! Must be a power thing! You can't just send out rejections all willy nilly like we don't have feelings. Are these schools talking to one another, are they laughing at us?!

    I did hear from Brown but that was specifically Africana Studies... my top choice. It was crushing to have my number one turn me away before the others. *Congrats for Irvine! (Loud applause)
