  1. I finally got rejected from Penn State. How freaking ridiculous. So disrespectful to other programs for taking this long. I can't believe I waited this long for them before making a final decision. I should've accepted at OSU literally a month ago. But whatever. I AM PROUD TO BE #BUCKEYEBOUND!
  2. I just received an email from Auburn saying I was taken off the waitlist and accepted. I replied declining the offer.
  3. I have decided that I will be attending Ohio State for my PhD in English. I'm so excited!!!
  4. I'm looking at off-campus housing for OSU, and I'm wondering if there's a list that someone can give me of my options. I'm interested in either a studio or a one-bedroom apartment that is furnished and includes a washer/dryer. If anyone can give me any advice, that'd be great. Also, I've been looking at the housing on campus in the Gateway apartments. The price is great, and it includes everything I need. It's right on campus too, so that's perfect. Does anyone who has lived there have any thoughts on it? What was your experience living there? Any info on housing will be apprec
  5. I have decided on Ohio State! UConn, UM, KU, University of Mississippi, and Auburn have been notified.

  7. Wow! That's crazy. They're the only school I'm waiting on. I'm like 98% I'm choosing another one, but now that I won't possibly hear from them until after April 15th means I'll most likely accept with the other school for sure since that's the national deadline.
  8. I emailed Penn State about my application status last Thursday and no response. Has anyone heard from them? They’re literally the only school I’m waiting on to make my final decision.

  10. So LSU reached out for a Zoom interview. I replied saying that I've already made a decision. I didn't want to waste their time, to be honest. I hope someone else who wants to go there can be interviewed instead!
  11. Does anyone know what's going on with Penn State? They are pretty much the last school that I'm really waiting on to make a final decision.
  12. I was just rejected from UVA. Wooooohooooo! I was already expecting this πŸ˜…
  13. So, I don't want to be negative, but I'm sensing a rejection from Virginia. I've only seen two acceptances and like one waitlist on the results page. Also, does anyone know what's going on with Penn State? I only see one acceptance, and the comment is asking if anyone's heard from them.
  14. I was rejected from UCLA. Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… If anyone's wondering, I logged on to my application portal and saw the official decision letter waiting for me there. I didn't receive any email notification prior.
  15. Also, I keep seeing people in the results saying that they checked their UCLA application portal, but mine doesn't say anything. How weird. Maybe they haven't finished posting all the rejections, and I'm at the bottom of the list πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ₯΄
  16. Just finished speaking with the DGS from OSU. Did not get a fellowship, unfortunately. However, we went over stipend details and all that. The course load is one per semester, which is great! I'm still waiting on a few more schools, but yes. I'm feeling good about OSU!
  17. I saw that someone posted for Auburn and University of Virginia. I'm sensing a rejection from them, since that's how it felt when I saw someone post for Illinois. Don't they usually send all the acceptances at the same time? That's why I'm thinking a rejection.
  18. Just got rejected from UC San Diego. Was on the bottom of my list anyway. Only applied because my advisor went there, TBH. Too expensive to live there anyway, so I'm not mad about it. Hah
  19. I just got accepted to KU! Received a call just now from DGS. This was the first call I've received from any school! 🀩
  20. Same here. I guess since I've been accepted already to one school, I don't feel as bad. It does give me a sense of relief. I was wondering when I would receive another admissions decision. Hah! In terms of increasing your chances, I'm not sure how that would work exactly. Wouldn't it be that if someone who was accepted decides to reject the offer, they would pick someone from the waitlist? If anyone can clear that up, that'd be great because I'm not really sure either That's freaking awesome! CONGRATS! Well deserved πŸ‘
  21. Just got a letter from DGS in an email about being waitlisted. "Due to an especially strong pool of applicants this year, we have only been able to offer acceptance to a small number of the many outstanding candidates who applied. However, the Graduate Executive Committee was very impressed with your record and has placed your name on a very selective waiting list to which we may return later in the admissions process." Not totally bad news!
