  1. @coffeelyf I heard back from them, and got waitlisted.
  2. Adding to this thread, could anyone please comment on the programs and atmospheres at Emory and UMass Amherst, specifically in the literature departments? Will be really grateful, thanks! P.S. extra gratitude for commenting on Druid Hills/Atlanta and Amherst/Northampton as places to live in! And for inputs on the caf├ęs, bookshops, and libraries in the areas, too!
  3. Commenting here to bump up this post on the message board! Thanks for this thoughtful gesture, @Warelin! A timely and comforting reminder. Positivity to all of us braving the storm and tides together.
  4. I haven't heard a peep from UW-Madison either, but preparing myself for a rejection. The waitlisted candidates seem to have been informed already, plus the status of my application on their portal still reads 'submitted'.
  5. @SomethingWicked I haven't heard back from Wisconsin either! Will email them in a month if they don't notifiy me of their decision by then!
  6. Thanks, @arbie for being so helpful! It's really comforting to know that an implied rejection need not necessarily be an actual one, till a real rejection email has reached one's inbox! I'm thinking of emailing end-Feb-ish if I still haven't heard back from them!
  7. From last year's notifications it seems as though UW-Madison sends out a couple of acceptances late January, and then several acceptances and some rejections towards the first-second week of February? Perhaps they accept candidates in two separate batches in the same cycle (while also accepting off their waitlist much later down the line). Trying desperately to cling on to hope here!
  8. Happy birthday, @bethisbetter ! Don't worry, many of us are on the same boat.
  9. Seconding @cruel optimism on the interview tips bit -- some general tips (applicable for most unis doing a Skype interview) would be great too, please?
  10. Yes, all my application statuses show up as 'submitted', including UChicago (which was an implied rejection) and Emory (where I landed an interview). No official rejection email(s) yet either, though most of the schools I've applied to typically notify candidates between mid-Feb to early-March. I'm guessing it'll take another couple of weeks, at least, for the portals to be updated/pending emails to be sent out.
  11. Ah, I see! Good luck!
  12. Thanks, @HPurple! I can see that you and I have 5 schools in common where we've applied to for Fall 2020!
  13. I'd applied to the Luce scholarship for PhD at UDelaware! Haven't heard back from either place yet! Which program did you apply to?
  14. Thanks so much, that's really helpful! Amherst is such a literary place, it'll be so wonderful to hear back from them positively! I remember having to fill out a separate funding application (for TA-ship at the Writing Centre), so I'm guessing it's the Writing Centre that interviews you after acceptance from the dept?
  15. Hey, thanks! I found out the same thing about UMass Amherst, but hoping they notify slightly earlier this year! The wait is already beginning to appear so stressful. I spoke to someone from Uva eng lit earlier and she said that she'd Skyped with her potential supervisor before accepting the offer -- not sure if the formal offer was sent before the skype session, or after.
  16. Does anyone know if UDelaware (eng lit) and UMass Amherst (eng lit) do interviews? Do they generally send out direct admission offers, or ask for at least one session with POIs before extending official offers? Also, could someone also tell me around what time they historically notify applicants? Thanks in advance for your help!
  17. I didn't receive a Doodle Poll request from UChicago either -- international applicant here, too! Checked the application portal and it says 'submitted' but not 'rejected' yet. Might still cry myself to sleep tonight.
  18. Emory U invited me to a Skype interview, too! I'm an international applicant as well. Congratulations to everyone who received good news, and good luck to everyone who's yet to hear! Although Emory is one of my top 3 places, I'm still waiting to hear back from the rest of my schools, it being still quite early in the application season!
