  1. Same-ish. I got in at Northwestern, BU, USC and Syracuse and wait-listed at Columbia. I accepted Syracuse's offer because of a tiny scholarship that was still more than what everyone else gave me.... But if Columbia gets back to me....who knows....
  2. Meant to post this earlier, but I accepted the offer at Syracuse, so I'll be headed there in...geez, less than 2 months. Excited about Newhouse, completely miserable about living in Syracuse, NY (no offense to anyone from there...). Thankfully it's only a year....
  3. I think GENERALLY, an apartment is an apartment is an apartment in Pullman. It's a college town, so most apartments aren't going to be pristine and utterly fantastic (unless it's a new complex, which is why I recommended Dabco...sad that they're full!!) but most won't downright suck, either. I think if you find a couple places you might be interested in, you should post your query about it on a WSU community online like Livejournal (http://community.livejournal.com/wazzu/) and see if anyone there has had experience with that rental company or complex. But in general, I'd say most places are
  4. I don't really have any good advice for you, but I just wanted to wish you luck on your decision! I guess one thing I think might be worth considering is, if you want to pursue sports journalism, then maybe going to a school where there are lots of opportunities to be around sports would be nice. Obviously all those schools have great teams of their own, but L.A. also has tons of professional sports in the area you could report on, and a million media outlets to work for, too. So that seems like it would be a great way to get you networking during your program, which could then help you land a
  5. So now I'm kind of curious...do you read any newspapers, magazines or online media sites, or listen to radio news or watch TV news at all? That isn't asked in a snarky way at all, I'm actually just wondering what publications/news outlets you consider decent -- if you consider any decent enough to follow, that is.
  6. Oh I don't disagree with that....mistakes definitely do happen, despite best intentions, you're right! But I definitely don't think those mistakes warrant the scum-of-the-earth vitriol that a some people are spewing towards reporters.
  7. Geez, is anyone else surprised by how harsh some of the responses to this simple request are... Not all reporters are out to get you. Actually, most aren't. Meh.
  8. Sweet! I heard today...got in also. Congrats!
  9. I applied to Annenberg on March 2, and e-mailed them last week to check...they said they hoped to have my admissions decision in the mail by the end of the week. So I'm hoping it'll arrive soon!
  10. First off, I'm sorry if this question has been posted before. I'm fairly new to this forum, so I might have missed something posted not too long ago, though I did go back a few pages and do a quick search.... OK so here's my question. For those of you in a grad program right now...do you ever regret the school you chose? Or do you ever wonder if another school would have been a better choice for you? If so...why do you think that is? Did you get sucked in by a Brand Name, or was it a money issue, or what? I'm sure there are a million possible reasons, but I'd love to know yours. I'm tryi
  11. Rejected over wait-listed, or rejected instead of waiting forever to hear back about a decision in general? 'Cause I'm wait-listed at Columbia, and initially, in between gasps and sobs and clumps of mascara streaking down from my face, I was like, "ugh why couldn't they just reject me, this feels terrible!" And then I got over it in a few days and realized eh, I'm fine with being wait-listed. I mean, it's nothing for me to be ashamed of or upset about (even though I'm envious of everyone who was accepted, and that envy comes from a not-so-nice place, but I'm working on it, I promise), as
  12. Hah, yay, good to know I'm not the only one they're giving the cold shoulder to. I want to know the decision just so I can move on with choosing between schools, but ultimately I don't care enough to call and harass them about it. LOL. Good luck!
  13. Which program did you apply to? I applied to their Specialized Journalism: The Arts program.... Still waiting to hear back. They aren't responding to my e-mails, either, so...haha. We'll see how that goes! Although I did apply on the final day of rolling admissions (March 2), so I wasn't expecting a quick turnaround. But you're not alone.
  14. No, but you can call a cab. Pullman is the size of a dot, so it won't cost very much at all.
  15. I think I'm gonna bring my car.... I'm looking forward to the cross-country drive (I live in L.A.)! That is, though, if I find a place to live with covered parking/a garage. I plan on NOT driving during the hellish winter and would prefer the snow to not come in contact with any part of my vehicle, hahaha.
