  1. Congrats Johnny Stormcloud!! It's funny how this works out - after I didn't hear from Buffalo and everyone else had, someone on here told me that there was a 99.9% of being rejected. Well... I wasn't! Congrats again, so proud of you!
  2. Tell him I said congrats, and I look forward to meeting him in the fall!
  3. Just declined SUNY Albany. Also took my name of the MA wait list at Boulder.
  4. I am fairly certain I am going to attend the MA program at Buffalo. It is by far my top choice out of the choices I have available. No funding definitely sucks, but I am VERY lucky to be in a fortunate position where I can pay for the MA (I had money saved for undergrad, but ended up not having to pay for undergrad). I feel confident enough that the MA at Buffalo will lead to a funded PhD somewhere, perhaps because it is the perfect program for my research interests. Hope that helps!
  5. Cicada, I don't not really have much experience with either program (besides being accepted to MAPH as well), but my gut instinct is that UVA is probably the better choice. I think the program at UVA is probably much smaller, and thus would allow more access to faculty. I have heard from one or two former MAPH students who said that they felt like they had to fight to get attention from faculty. This issue becomes important when it comes time to get LORs. While Chicago's English program is obviously a TOP program, I think UVA's MA would probably have a higher ranking than UChicago's MAPH, if such a ranking of MA programs existed (maybe it does). It is just my impression that UVA would likely lead to a more successful placement in a PhD program than Chicago. Again, I don't have any real experience with either program, this is all just my impressions. Hope it helps!
  6. Yes, I think he and I have talked actually. I am very excited for UBuffalo. It was one of my top choice programs. Good luck with your wait lists, I am hoping you hear good news soon!
  7. I am visiting a school soon, and if all goes well, as I assume it will, I will be declining Albany's offer.
  8. Congrats! I was told no funding for M.A. This is where I looked to see tuition, which was the same as a sheet they included in the acceptance packet: http://studentaccounts.buffalo.edu/tuition/spring.php Hope this helps!
  9. An annual Buffalo Chicken Wing festival? I am so there! I am going to visit soon, and as I have said before, am almost certain that I will attend. I am coming from Boston/Cambridge, but I am actually looking forward to leaving a major city. I have ALWAYS wanted to see Niagra Falls. Anyways, Ryanweb, could I PM you with a few questions re: areas to live in/avoid, etc.? Thanks, I am very excited for this program!!
  10. I am on the East Coast (Mass.) and received a wait list notification last Monday. If you don't get something soon, I'd call them. Although, I applied to the MA, not the PhD, so things may be different there. Hope this helps! And good luck!
  11. Is anyone going to visit Buffalo? I am certain I am going to attend, and wondering if it is worth a trip. There is no official visitation or anything like that, but they said that visits can be arranged. It would be on my own expense, but I would kind of like to meet some people there and just see the school. Does anyone have any advice on this? Thanks.
  12. The e-mail rejection was me. I have not yet received an official rejection, but was told they were sent out yesterday via USPS.
  13. So I broke down and e-mailed them AGAIN today... hoping I get a reply soon.
