A reaction to the coffee-centrism of the site, perhaps?

LOL! a subversive undercurrent of tea representational activists trying to overthrow the caffeine hegemony.

 

Also, tea sux coffee rulz.

Today I was rejected by Columbia (email to check portal), waitlisted at CUNY (a nice email with an invitation to an open house mid-March), and accepted to University of Washington with funding! I'm overwhelmed :,)

Also, admitted at University of Washington. Congrats! Can I ask what your area of interest is?

I just like tea. Always have. Too much caffeine gives me heart palpatations and keeps me up all night. Two things I don’t need more of right now. 

Besides, I have certain teas for certain times. Black tea in the morning, green tea for the afternoon pick-me-up, cinnamon tea as my “snack tea,” and chamomile to calm me down at night. I do have others in the rotation, but this pretty much sums up my basic tea-infused (get it?) day.

@mwils15 congratulations to you as well! : ) Broad focus is Postcolonial and Transnational Literatures; more specific focus is magical realism/feminism in Latin American and Afro-Latinx fiction, poetry, and performance : ))

Thanks so much to all for sharing your experiences with the portal! I think the theory about them not being updated until much later is spot-on. 

On the results board, I'd come across a lot of people who mentioned they got an email to check the portal for their UPenn notification (all of them, including acceptances, waitlists, and rejections) last year, so I wanted to see if I could find a rejection yet. Alas, no such luck, so I'll be trudging along...

With the sudden UW result I'm solidly a shut out this year. Best of luck to everyone still in the process! 

Sorry Cardigan, but I know you have great things ahead of you, within the academy and without.

@optimistic_nihilist I didn’t personally pick a fave beverage for a name because a) I didn’t get that anonymity memo but also b) it’s hard to tell a bunch of internet strangers just how much you like bourbon 🤣

I'm sorry to hear this news. Did you get a response from Brandeis? 

Not yet, but I'm counting it as implied since they've sent acceptances and wait list notifications.

Yeah I called them yesterday and they said they had already notified all those who were accepted and waitlisted, unfortunately.

I saw that a bunch of people checked their CUNY portal and received a rejection. I opened my portal and my application wasn't there! And it said to start a new application? Am I looking in the wrong place/has this happened to anyone else?

Sorry @CaffeineCardigan! I was shut out last year but learned so much in the process! I hope you did and will try again next year if you’re not too busy on that land!

For what it’s worth I’ve been Googling plots of land all week b/c of our convo last week! 

Good luck with everything!

Bummer, dude. Will we see you next year? I'll be here; we can commiserate/cooperate in app dominate(ion), if you'd like!

Is there anyone here who can give an update on Northeastern? They sent out some rejections and a few interview/campus visits, but no acceptances yet (at least on the board). Does anyone know when these campus visits take place? Meanwhile, I haven't received any word. Any insight is appreciated!

anyone else heard from UNC? there were those few acceptances and waitlists on the board, but it didn’t seem like everything went out at once? feeling a little anxious now, hoping this doesn’t mean rejections are next

I'm unfortunately unable to attend the scheduled visit dates for UW as I have a previously planned trip during that time.  Are schools accommodating with visiting during times other than the scheduled days due to conflict / do you think they will be flexible with the travel grant if I fly out on a different day?

Any advice or intel in this arena is much appreciated!
