  1. I just want to put out there that if there are any other people attending Boston area schools in this thread who are looking for a roommate, I'd love to chat! I'm potentially looking for one and I'm looking at living in Brighton or on the green line, as I don't want to take my car. Figured I'd ask here first rather than a more general group
  2. @WildeThing @Rehana202 @Warelin @Bopie5 thanks so much, everyone ❤️ I am beyond thrilled! I'll be celebrating with some tacos!! And I agree with Bopie, I can't wait to see what all of us achieve and I hope we run into each other one way or another in the academic world someday. I'm so thankful for the gradcafe community
  3. I JUST GOT ACCEPTED TO BOSTON COLLEGE! I'm crying so hard. I'm so thankful and in disbelief, I've been shaking since I got the email. I'll be emailing shortly to take myself off of the UConn waitlist and I hope this helps someone else out. Thank you all so much for your kind words and support through this whole process. It's especially wonderful because yesterday marked one year since my dad passed away, and I can't help but feel he's looking out for me.
  4. Just got an email that I'm now at the top of the waitlist at Boston College. Fingers crossed! I'd love to see a five + year dream/goal achieved and never have to go through an admissions cycle again 🙃
  5. It's such a difficult process... but I'm hoping the best for us!
  6. I received an email from the DGS at BC saying that she expects movement in the next two weeks, and that's she'll keep me updated about what's happening. I'm glad to hear that she expects movement, but man oh man these next few weeks are going to be killer.
  7. I'd like to speak to some of your post as I was in a vaguely similar situation two years ago. I had worked full-time throughout undergrad as my family was very poor. I had been in an emotionally abusive relationship for four years, and I made the decision that if I got into one of my dream programs, I would go, and do something for myself. I had visited Portland State, and fell absolutely in love with it. Well, I got off the waitlist for funding. I then also got into Villanova with funding, and thought about attending there as well. Well, then on April 11th, in the eleventh hour, I got off the
  8. @clara salmon @brockdenbrown802 @anxiousgrad thanks all! This made me feel better about reaching out. I'm going to draft an email soon!
  9. I've seen a few posts like this before, but I'm wondering if I should reach out again to BC and reaffirm my interest in their program as well as see about my place on the waitlist? I've been accepted to two more conferences since I submitted my application, and received two awards. I'm wondering if it could be a kind of two birds one stone sort of email, or if I should wait to send an email like this when we get closer to April.
  10. Congrats for getting into your reach school! If you would feel comfortable, would you mind PMing me what your research interests are? I'm waitlisted at Boston College and am curious. If not, no problem
  11. The extension for abstracts is the only thing that saved me, lol. I'm presenting on the Irish female celebrity body and it's connections to the Irish landscape in a way that sort of acts as an extension of colonial ideals! But more broadly it will be about Grace Kelly 😅
  12. Hi all! Despite what I think may be an encroaching shutout for me, I'm trying to get excited about other things happening in my life. That said, I'm presenting at NeMLA this Friday (it's virtual)! If anyone else is presenting there and would like a friend in their audience, feel free to let me know because I would love to meet some of you and see your neat research in action! I have the day off so besides my panel (5-6:30), I'll have plenty of time to check out people's amazing work.
  13. Thanks for letting me know! From the way the waitlist has been explained to me, I don't think we'd be in competition for the same spot, but I'd definitely appreciate it if you let me know if they do end up taking themselves off the waitlist! I'll do the same.
