I have Boston College, Vanderbilt, Maryland, and Northwestern down for responses this week (also Chicago but having not received an interview request I am taking that one as a loss). I really hope this will be a good week since the following week i only had Rice, who have already notified apparently. The two weeks after that should be the major ones, as all but 1 of the remaining schools should be notifying acceptances over that period.

Did you hear from Maryland this week? Or you have that they are sending  decisions? They’re one that I check OBSESSIVELY since it was due so early...

Ugh sorry I keep confusing people. I need faces to connect with events (but I too haven't put up a photo). We can be there for each other when we get rejected. 

Anyway, this is really killing me today. I turned my phone alerts on for my decision email this morning and used the ringtone "suspense" as I kind of cruel personal joke, which I do not recommend...  the suspense is horribly anticlimactic when it's Vitacost reminding you that there are still items in your cart ?

Lol I love using personal jokes to simply torture myself mercilessly in times of hardship ???

After the Duke rejection, Vanderbilt is next up on my list. Do any of you have an approximation on Baylor's notification? Based on what I've seen they seem to be within the next couple of weeks.

There's a ton of Northwestern results up (for other programs, not English) which would lead me to believe the closure didn't impact adcomms too much at least?

I have friends who aren't on gradcafe who are also going through this process. One found out last week that she got into Maryland, though not 100% sure on her program though I think it's English. Another friend just told me he heard from Boston College today with an acceptance.

Given I haven't gotten a WUSTL email from DGS, can I add it to my pile of implied rejections (or at least implied non-acceptances if I'm lucky enough to get a spot on the wait list)?

EDIT: Also, I've seen Cambridge rejections on results board for the MPhil. Does Cambridge not send them all out at once? I know they are on a "rolling admissions" system but I heard from some people that all that means for Cambridge is that they may contact you early if your application really wows them (don't know if that's true or not).

Do you guys think we're likely to hear from Berkeley this week? Perhaps the next?

I sure hope those UCs + Stanford get to work soon! The two I applied to are my top programs!

Is anyone else like concerned about where they'll be when they receive news on their decisions? I'm currently working weekends and am a bit concerned about getting any kind of news while I'm at my job.

YES.  I have played out so many random scenarios in my mind.

My therapist suggested I wait to open emails until I'm at home but I don't know if I can follow that advice.

Both of the programs I have been accepted to called while I was at work. I wasn't able to answer at the moment, but seeing calls/voicemails from the cities where these schools are was amazing! I called back a few hours later in both cases. I have been trying not to open my emails at work. I am afraid that bad news might sour the rest of my day.

I was at the vet when I found out about one program. I then had to try and have a very serious conversation with the vet who I’m sure thought something was wrong with me since I kept grinning. I was trying not to but I couldn’t help it. (the dog is okay, also)

i saw some advice a long time ago to let the calls go to voicemail intentionally so you’ll get a really lovely voicemail that you can listen to forever and ever, but especially when you’re feeling imposter syndrome.
