  1. After much deliberation, I have decided to accept UNM's offer! Albuquerque, here we come! Best of luck to everyone else who is still considering their options, and a BIG congrats to everyone who has already made their decision!
  2. Welp, my UNM visit just got canceled. Anyone from New Mexico know anything about the Albuquerque area? It's going to be difficult to compare these offers when I get to see Duquesne first-hand, but not UNM. Talk about poor timing. I'm struggling to remain optimistic in light of all this madness.
  3. Well then that works perfectly since I have a special place in my heart for medievalists, myself. My best friend is an aspiring Medieval Lit scholar Nerds of the world unite!
  4. What about Americanists? I, too, wish to attend nerd school.
  5. Just heard back from the UPenn graduate admin. She said that final meetings are being held now and that decisions should be out in the "next week or so." Pretty vague, but it doesn't look like we should expect to hear from Penn today!
  6. Happy to be of service! I had a rare moment where my anxiety wasn't paying attention, so I just hit send and closed my email tab 😅
  7. Finally cracked and sent an email to the graduate coordinator at UPenn asking if there was any update on when decisions will be released. Will report back if I hear from them!
  8. I wouldn't lose hope just yet! Mine came in like 3 minutes ago, which looks a little later than the other ones that already went out. Good luck!
  9. Soooo do we expect UPenn to be notifying this week? Last year it was around the 20th, I think. I mean, I don't actually think I'd be accepted there, but it'd be nice to know at least.
  10. Congratulations, you must be so excited to have all of your decisions in! You now have me contemplating sending Purdue an email as well.
  11. I get that. I thought that getting an acceptance (finally) would take the edge off, but not knowing on the rest of my programs is killing me. Side note: I'm utterly convinced that waitlists are specifically organized to raise the blood pressure of poor, unsuspecting grad students. It looks as though you have some good options though, so congrats on your acceptances! But I understand the frustration with Purdue, I'm waiting on them myself with their "rolling admissions," whatever thats supposed to mean haha Best of luck on your thesis!
  12. YES. I am struggling soooo hard with my thesis right now. Every time I sit down to write, my mind feels like it's bouncing and everything I write feels like garbage. Solidarity, I feel you.
  13. Just accepted to Duquesne! First admit of the cycle. Crying with joy!
