Come on, UVA - swing the sword! I'm ready!

I was really thrown off to see the UVA rejections on the board this morning, not having got one myself--glad my head's not alone on this chopping block.

I'd like to add a note here: There are some schools that have 'invisible waitlists'.

Last year, for what it's worth, I was sent an email informing me I was on UVA's waitlist, and my portal did not update until April with the final rejection.

Ah. Well I can’t say this is particularly encouraging information, but good to have nonetheless. Thanks!

To add my tidbit, I didn't hear back from Davis until late July or August last year. I'm assuming my application got lost or something of the sort. Hope that makes ya'll feel better! 😖

im also in the UVA boat of no news…anyone know why??

One theory--in past years a few rejections came on the second day, (and it's possible that those were misreported because they weren't seen on the first day) so it's possible we are just at the end of the alphabet or something. My last name starts with "W" so it's possible.

A more favorable theory--last year waitlist notifications went out after rejections. The ones I have read said that they were either waitlisted and invited to visit or "on a long waitlist" but admitted to the MA program (which I don't think is funded).

I applied to Rutgers for Fall 2017 and received a phone call from the DGS that I'd been put on a waitlist during the last week of Feb. I'm assuming that's when I'll be hearing back this time round, too

Sorry but “Columbia was my safety school” 😳😳😳😳 Some people are really out to get that anonymous internet hate today.

People are so wild honestly. They must be feeling sooooooooooo hurt right now.

maybe i was being too generous reading it as sarcastic, but my go to response against rejection is always sarcasm so i always assume that is how everyone else copes as well 😛

You’re probably right, I’ve been working in customer service too long, lol, I often believe the worst.

But I mean today someone ordered a chef salad and was mad as hell when it came out that it wasn’t a sandwich soooooooo perhaps my cynicism isn’t entirely unreasonable 🤣

I wake up this morning... to a Columbia rejection lol. I'm now wishing I posted something witty for my results board post. Currently referred to the free-standing MA, so fingers crossed there.

More of a relief than anything. This was a strange limbo to be held in, so glad it's finally over.

Alright Yale, I'm ready. You've already sent your acceptance notifications out. Come on Yale GSAS, pls.

Yes, goddamn tuna/egg salad!!!!  Haha, but this is a near weekly occurrence.  The other day someone ordered nachos with no mustard...they thought the nachos were a sandwich.

I’m at work but will someone pls call UVA and ask what’s going on? I will be forever grateful  

I believe it was @The Wordsworthian who called yesterday and was told they’d sent out all acceptances and waitlists - I think that unfortunately we’re just waiting on very slow rejections :( it looks like last year rejections were spaced out too.

Obviously futile hope, but are we *sure* that Yale has sent out all its acceptances? Weren’t only two posted on the board? That seems exceptionally low, especially compared to Princeton/Columbia. And they were via phone. (It’s the last big thing I’m waiting on and am impatient...)

I was just about to post about Yale! I think it’s decinitely an IR for me, but that hope just won’t die, no matter how much I tamp down on it. 

Fingers and toes crossed for us both.

Tbh also hoping (and trying to ramp it down but it's not helping with me lol) with @Anonymouse124 The tiny amount of acceptances on the results board is a sign, but if their pattern from 2018 holds... There's only 14/15 acceptances floating around, and I wouldn't be surprised if the vast majority of acceptances are left unreported. (What I'm even more surprised with is... so far none of them seems to be an active GC member that has piped up on the acceptances thread? O_o I was expecting any of you get the Yale e-mail... Or someone to sign up and post, but our Yale acceptees may likely be lurkers this cycle)

I'm holding onto the last shred of hope (maybe they're doing it by field? who knows lol) but it's been two days since there were reports of acceptances... Usually Yale is the type of school that does same-day notifications, so I'm surprised that it's taking this long.

Fingers crossed for both of you. Hopefully we get something today or tomorrow. Last year on this date was when Yale sent out notifications.

Hi friends-- Does anyone want to claim that UPenn acceptance? I'm in a bit of a state, and am not sure if the phone call was from DGS, was an informal offer, from a POI, etc. and please take pity on my anxious heart and tell me if it's you 🙏. Thanks!
