Awesome!! Congratulations. Was this an email or a letter in the mail? I applied to UNC, too, and am hoping to hear something soon. Also, do you still have to go to campus for an interview in February? The email I got in December said they would hold on-campus interviews Feb. 13 and 14.

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks! I received an e-mail acceptance. I didn't get anything regarding on-campus interviews, but that can probably be explained because...

Congratulations!!! Just to clarify, did you apply for the Communication program or the Media and Communication program? 

...I should have been more specific. I applied to the Communication program, not the Media and Communication program in the Hussman school. Sea382, what program did you apply for at USF? (and thanks!)

Has anyone heard from Penn State (Mass Comm)? At least some of us should've received open house invitations last week according to the result board.

I heard from Penn State (Mass Comm) over the weekend and then received an email with more info just today. Invited to their open house/interview days in February.

Nice!

I'm not applying at USF - I was in the program for my MA and still keep in touch with people there. It's a solid choice that I think surprises people a bit when they visit (more than "solid" depending on your interests).

I haven't heard from USC or Cornell (saw a couple folks above asking). Did get an interview request from UNC Chapel Hill that I'm planning to attend. Definitely starting to feel antsy! 

I feel the same way 😬 I looked at the old forums and can't figure out when those two schools would traditionally have emailed the students...

There's one report on the result board about interview request on Jan 19, 2018, so I figure we should wait a couple days and see.
