  1. I don’t know what to say. I’m disappointed!
  2. Dear Ivan: In our review of your application for admission to Iowa State University for graduate study and your supporting credentials, a thorough evaluation of your previous education was completed. Our review indicates that you do not have the prerequisite degree requirements for consideration for graduate study. Iowa State University does not consider a three-year degree from Universidade Anhembi Morumbi as comparable to a US bachelor’s degree. Thank you for your interest in Iowa State University. Sincerely, XXXXXXXXXXX Ass
  3. He replied to my last message: “I'm really hoping that you will get your letter soon. I am monitoring progress, and everything is looking good now.” I believe it’s a more positive message 😅😅😅
  4. Thanks!!!! I’ve just messaged my POI and he replied: “Please note that you are not accepted until you receive the official letter.” I really don’t know what to think! I thought it was pretty official I even celebrated my acceptance yesterday. My kids wanted me to throw a party hahaha I cooked some pasta and my wife baked a cake.
  5. Guys, I was accepted to Iowa State University. Fully funded! My first acceptance came from my top choice school. I’m so happy!
  6. Thanks! I’ll be able to post my results now! 😃😃😃😃
  7. I had the same question haha! Also, does anyone know how to post the results? I checked the Results page, but I couldn’t find a button/field to add my results.
  8. Hi Amelia, I’m so sorry to hear you couldn’t focus... unfortunately, these things happen sometimes 🙁 I wouldn’t be worried if I were you. If the interview was hard for you, it was probably hard for everyone. I don’t know if you’ve emailed them to thank for the interview, but if you haven’t, do it and ask for the timeline. I believe they’ll send their acceptances/rejections for now (maybe today or tomorrow) 😬
  9. I only applied to 3 schools! 😁😁😁 BTW, congratulations on your acceptances! Have you decided which offer you’ll accept?
  10. Hi, Amelia! Me again! I had a blast yesterday. I was interviewed by 4 professors, they asked me only 4 questions, but we talked for 31 minutes. It was really amazing and I believe they liked the chat. UIUC is an awesome university. I just hope I get in! Good luck on your interview! I’m rooting for you!
  11. Why are you worried about that? Just because you got a rejection? Everyone is different, but I think 5 is enough!
  12. Hi, Amelia, Thank you so much for your detailed description of the interview. In fact, I applied to the MATESL, so your tips will help me a lot. It’s so interesting you mentioned they’re student-centered and against grammar/lecture focused. I’ve used TBL and Communicative Approach for 18 years, so I believe I’m a good fit! 😁 Sorry for not being able to help you with your interview. The good thing is that you already know the faculty members. You’ll nail this interview. 🤞🏻🤞🏻for both of us!
  13. Has anyone ever been interviewed by UIUC? If so, can you please tell me how it went. I believe I’ll be interview this Saturday.
  14. Just be yourself! Everything is going to work out well! My first official interview (I say official because I’ve been interview by lots of professors before applying to the programs) happened in December and it was really easy. They asked me just a couple of questions, it wasn’t longer than 20 minutes. They just wanted to know about my research and if I’d be willing to teach Composition to native (and non-native) undergrad students. You know, at the moment I thought “I nailed this interview”, but after a few hours I realized I could’ve done better. Instead of answering “I’m ok
  15. That’s awesome! Congratulations! 🍾 🤩 I’m happy for you!
  16. Congrats! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
  17. Sure! Ask the interviewer! You spent time and money to apply to this program, it’s their “obligation” to explain why they rejected you. I’m certain you’ll be accepted somewhere else this year!
  18. Hi everyone, I’m just curious to know if I was the only one to apply to the Applied Linguistics/TESL program at Iowa State University! 🤣🤣😂😂😂 If you applied to this program, let’s talk about it here! 😃😃😃😃😃
  19. I’m so really sorry to hear you got a rejection today! 🙁🙁 I hate this admitted/rejected game. If I were you, I’d ask my POI why I was rejected. It’s important to know why you’ve been rejected in case you want to reapply in the future.
