Accepted off the Michigan waitlist! Beyond thrilled.

After a ridiculously wonderful visit at Yale, I've decided not to visit Michigan and Cornell and have officially accepted Yale's offer. SUCH PEACE!

Annnnd I just accepted my offer from the University of Pennsylvania. This was an agonizing decision but I'm convinced that I've made the right choice. So pleased to be joining a program featuring so m

Hi all,

I just got accepted to Trinity's MPhil in Irish Writing program without funding. It looks like it'll be hugely expensive as I'm non-EU (~$30,000 in all), and I can't see how it's worth it. I kind of get the feeling that it's just a cash cow, since they accept around 20 students and don't require a writing sample. I'm pretty sure I'd like to do a PhD focused on Irish Lit, so I guess the program fits well with that, but it seems ridiculous to me to pay that much for a one year masters.

Any insights or advice?

That's amazing!!! Everybody I met at Michigan was so kind and supportive and I'm told Ann Arbor is a great place to live - I'm sure you'll have a fantastic experience. Wishing you all the best!

Heading to Yale!!!!!!!!!

Was genuinely so tough to decide between Yale, Princeton and Columbia, as they were all legitimately tied as #1 in my mind and each had unique strengths for me personally, but something about New Haven just already felt like home. Whether that was just because they had their visit days and Princeton/Columbia didn't, it's a little hard to say, but at one point I just had to say to myself that counterfactuals aren't helpful in this scenario, it is what it is, and I have to go with my gut. If I'm honest I'm going to feel pretty sad about turning down Princeton/Columbia for a long time, but still feels like the right decision, if that makes any sense... 

Good luck to everyone in the next few days! Hang in there.

Congrats from a fellow Yalie!
