  1. I will be attending UC Irvine in the fall! Hello!
  2. Officially signed my SIR for UC Irvine, and I'm super excited!!!
  3. Just recieved my Santa Cruz rejection. It was implied, and I wasn't considering them anymore, anyway, but it's relieving to finally have all my decisions!
  4. Honestly! They definitely screw up all the time which lessens my imposter syndrome a bit. It's possible that they didn't contact waitlisted applicants since the only one I see on the board is mine (unless they just weren't posted on the board), but that's a pretty bad look imo. It's getting to the point of the process where people are beginning to make decisions, and I wouldn't have even thought to consider them since there's been no correspondence between us whatsoever???
  5. I found out that I was on the waitlist for UC Davis today, but I know for certain I wouldn't be attending even if I'm accepted, so I asked to have myself removed. Hopefully this will allow someone else to be closer to acceptance. Best of luck!
  6. So apparently I was waitlisted??!?!?! I guess they forgot to tell me...? LOL
  7. Thank you, I emailed the grad department a few weeks ago and he pretty much said there wasn't anything to be said since they were still making decisions, but I tried my hand with the English coordinator so lets see, lol. I wouldn't even consider my two remaining schools over the ones I was accepted to, but I honestly just need this closure at this point lol
  8. Has anyone else still not heard anything from UC Davis? I don't even think I'm interested in the program anymore, but the silence seems kind of odd lol, considering acceptances and rejections went out forever ago.
  9. Congrats!!!! I live in the outskirts of the city, and JH is in a really great area!
  10. Visit at UCSB was cancelled. Any current students on the form? I asked about contact information for fellow admits, but I was informed that "they don't give out information for applicants prior to admission." Which was kind of confusing because we were all admitted already lol. So if any fellow admits or current students are on here I'd love to talk!
  11. It is ridiculous. I forgot to include that which is another concern of mine. I could only afford to live in the grad housing. At least with Irvine, if I ever got completely sick of it, I could potentially move to Long Beach or LA after my first year or two. I'm not too familiar with Santa Barbara, but I don't think there's anywhere near by enough for me to do that? I'm definitely taking @meghan_sparkle advice about not putting too much stock in the recruitment methods. The DGS at Irvine is using my offer from UCSB in order to raise my funding. There are also two new brilliant professors who were hired in my field (I haven't the slightest idea about who they are, but everytime I shared my interests with anyone, grad student or professor, excitedly informed me about the new professors in my field). Talking through this is actually making things more clear for me. I'm very indecisive and have been working on my confidence when it comes to decision making, but I tend to constantly go back and forward between two options. And honestly, if I am awarded the fellowship at UCI (fingers crossed!) it absolutely would not make sense for me to accept my other offer.
  12. Thank you so much for this! The schools are UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara, if that helps at all. I will for sure ask for the contact information of my potential cohort members! I didn't even think of this. I will for sure keep that in mind! All schools have different recruitment methods, and the DGSs at both schools have been super helpful and transparent about the process. I think the most important step at this point is for me to reach out in order to weigh the pros and cons. I came into this process pretty blindly and without much guidance, so I've definitely been feeling lost lately lol
