Has anyone else literally heard nothing from the schools they applied to?  Although a few of my schools have started notifying, it's complete radio silence on my end.  I just want the silence to be broken so I can breathe!

Same! None of my schools have started notifying, no interview requests, zip. I was starting to think I'd done something wrong even though I know it's pure coincidence!

Just got the email that my daughter was accepted to University of Illinois Ischool. 

It is exciting because it looks like such an amazing program, but really expensive. 

I’m still hoping for a fully-funded PhD program because we have another daughter finishing her undergrad degree and 2 more still at home so it would be great to have a little break from tuition. 

In the end, she would like to get both an English PhD and a Library Information masters, so this is great news and in the end, all of her options are good ones.

Three of my programs haven't said a peep either. My #1 had a late deadline (january 15) so I'm expecting a later notification and my heart may give out.

UCLA English admission statistics: https://grad.ucla.edu/programs/humanities/english/#program-statistics

There are already *4 out of what is approximately 24 on the board, so seems like a possible rejection :( At least we will know for sure soon; based on past UCLA English results, they actually send out rejections about a week after. 

 

Congrats to all the happy acceptances!!!

That feeling when you accidentally copy and paste your email in the results forum... @Warelin can an admin remove?  

 Is today over yet?

Unfortunately, not something I have access to. If you report it though, an admin can take care of it. Alternatively, I think using the contact us forum and explaining the issue will also result in fast action. :)

Officially a rejection from Chicago. My POI emailed me with a very kind note. I figured this was coming, but it still stings. I’m not sure if others have been rejected after an interview at Chicago, but it’s hard to not take it personally. 

I’m not planning on the rest of this cycle going well. Blargh.

When one of your POIs at Chicago is, in fact, Deborah Nelson and you're not quite sure whether to be pleased at her very complimentary email... rejecting you from the program to which you applied. ?

yeah, daniel morgan from cinema wrote mine. i named robert bird as my main poi. i got the referral to maph, though, i guess. 

congrats to everyone getting acceptances and waitlists, btw. super excited for everyone!

With another rejection, I’ve made my peace with this cycle. I have a few more programs to hear back from, so it’s not a shut out yet, but I’ve learned a lot this cycle. I think ultimately I just didn’t apply to the best programs *for me*. I’m going to do a better job next cycle on diversifying my applications to programs that are a better fit, and so much of the conversation here has helped me realize that not getting in isn’t the end of the world. It just means not yet.

 

Thanks so much, you guys, for maintaining a positive environment for everyone. I get so excited for those of you I’ve seen while lurking this past year when you get into programs you’re stoked for. Congratulations!
