where did you apply this time?

Thanks for the support y'all! I applied 16 places, but my top are Michener, New Writers Project, Purdue, UMass Amherst, and UNLV. Looks like Purdue started notifying today 😕

Yay another person who applied to UNLV as a poet! And hopefully you hear good news from Purdue.

I had SUCH a vivid dream last night that I was accepted to Iowa, I had to wake myself up and check the portal. I even posted on here in my dream. Let’s hope it’s a premonition!

I had another dream about Syracuse. Something’s happening to all of us.

I had a dream that I got accepted via phone by North Carolina State, and I said, "Thanks, don't forget to vote for Elizabeth Warren." The collision of grad school application life and political organizer life...

I started laughing out loud. That’s a dream that I want to have. Instead I have nightmares about working as a bridal stylist mixed with acceptance dreams.

Thanks so much! and yesss!!! UNLV looks like such a great program, it would be so cool to learn more about translation and study abroad!

I really really hope UNLV has resources for me to learn welsh. I want to translate welsh poetry but it’s so hard to find welsh textbooks let alone a welsh teacher.

Wow that's really cool! I don't think I've read much welsh poetry, do you have any recs for me? Also, it looks like they really engage with whatever type of translation you want!

I haven't read much Welsh poetry either tbh, I just love the language. It's so interesting and complicated. And it's good that they seem to let us have free reign over which language we want to translate!

Sending you a virtual hug. I’m sorry it’s not good news. Just one school though. Keep your head up high

Ahhh I see that Minnesota has started notifying fiction applicants. Has anyone heard back for poetry?

Has anyone ever asked a school when they plan to notify? I'm too nervous to do it myself, but knowing when I could expect an answer may help quell my anxiety.

For the schools I applied, the dates are pretty well-known (per the results boards going all the way back to '16 I should expect to hear by the third week of February). If you don't have an idea, I doubt there is anything negative associated with sending a polite query (unless they specifically request applicants to not ask)

I love BU: 

"A hint: those who write in flowery prose or overly-subjectively–that is, about dreams, memories, thoughts, states of mind–or who dwell obsessively on sensitive children may find themselves at a disadvantage."

I was just thinking of asking Syracuse or washu but I’m scared. If someone agrees to take Syracuse I’ll do washu or vice versa.
