Happy to share that I have received and accepted an offer from Texas State! A big thank you to everyone who has been contributing to this forum. It’s been super comforting to go through this process w

I got in and will be attending in the fall! Happy to talk through the whole process with those who are interested, but the short version is this: I applied December 1 deadline. Invited to in

Welcome to the group @patrickjnorris! Glad to hear of your scheduled interviews! The only CA school I've applied to is Irvine and UCSD. I applied to Irvine through URTA and did not get invited to inte

I was wondering the same thing. Waiting is torture.

I'll hear from Brown this Friday, or if I don't I know I'm out there.

No word from Boston U, which people had heard from them by this time last year, so that makes me think that's a no. Which makes me sad. I thought that was my strongest application. 

Northwestern contacts people until mid-Feb so they're still a possibility.

No idea about UCSD. Application status is "under review"

I hope the URTA peeps start getting some good news! It's been eerily quiet on here.

The waiting is enough to drive you crazy, right?!?! Sounds like everyone has made some progress in the process. Congrats to everyone! Here's my current body count:

Penn State - Rejection received

Texas State - Had second interview on campus - was told decisions will be made in 1-2 weeks.

Florida State - URTA interview went great. We were each other's last interview of the day so we went over time quite a bit. She said second/final round candidates would be invited for on campus interviews sometime in February. Haven't heard anything yet.

Ohio University - Invited for campus visit/interview.

UC San Diego - Still no word (just like the rest of us).

@ManderLemon How did Sarah Lawrence go? Did you learn anything? I did not apply this year, but was curious for future years. It looks expensive tho!  

Good luck everyone. This grad school thing is just short of a mind fuck. If I'm ever in the 1%, I'm creating more grad programs and full funding for theatre makers. And if socialism ever works out I'm lobbying for state funded theatres that train directors :D

Got the official no from Brown. Which I knew already, but come on Brown! On Valentine's day!

Sent an E-mail to the contact person from Northwestern and got an automatic response saying she was on leave. So maybe that is why no one has heard? I'll report back if I hear anything.
