In at Davis!!! My first English acceptance of this cycle. Really exciting and particularly validating since I was rejected from their program in my last app cycle. I'm so happy! Funding details to com

Anyone else getting this weird message on their pending applications or is it just me? Guessing this is a hint from the adcoms that I should refresh a few more times

I got into my first MA program!!! I know most of y'all are PhD applicants, but this is so huge for me!! I got offered a teaching assistantship for two years!!!! This means I can move out of my parents

Just got an email titled "From the Office of Admissions" and I almost choked when I saw the notification...

It was just a spam message from a school I signed up to get notifications from, but didn't end up applying to.

They should be FORBIDDEN from sending out stuff like that during response/rejection/dejection season. SERIOUSLY.

I'm still waiting on two schools but am about ready to give up on them ever getting back to me. I submitted my applications the third week of October, so this wait has felt interminable.

Dude, same! It reminded me of last year (after being shut out) when one of the schools I got rejected from accidentally sent me a welcome letter to their school. Bad form! 😂

I totally feel your pain, though. Wishing you the best of luck with the rest of this brutal cycle!

For the love of god, is UC Santa Barbara planning on releasing their decisions sometime this year?! 

RIGHT?! I asked when we might expect decisions and they said this week, but I'm sitting here at the end of the week and I'm not so sure...

Finally got rejected from Austin. More like ASSTIN. JK that's my dream school, RIP

Just laughed out loud at this while dealing with my own rejection. Lucky for me that rejection hit in the middle of my therapy appointment and my therapist had also been rejected from UT Austin one time and was all "HOW DARE THEY REJECT US"

How are y'all all so good-natured about this? I cry every time. The jokes only come later.

So I checked U Rochester's portal and it says "Decision Released," but when I click on it it says "There is no update to your application status to report." WHAT MIND GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING WITH ME? Anyone else get this???

Just checked—same. We’ll probably get the answer by the end of today. Good luck :)

Everyone grieves differently I guess. I spent more time crying earlier in the season and now I’m p numb to it all. I have a job at a cafe that I really like and live in a town where I have cultivated a lot of friendships, so I’m like, well it’s not like I’m in a totally horrible situation... I was sort of scared of the workload of a PhD anyway so I guess this is kind of a crappy reprieve? I applied to 14 schools and got fully rejected from all of them, though, which is a first for me for college/grad school apps. Cheers to breaking records! Wheeeeeeee!!!!

Mine is still "under review". I've opened the portal so many times that I get the feeling they never even opened my application, because the massage has been the same for so long now hahah

I've got almost 2 weeks worth of depression meals prepped in the fridge and ready to go for when my mental health inevitably falls apart from the shut out 🎉

I also come from an 1st generation immigrant family, so I was taught that I did not deserve to cry for personal failures because everything awful is all my fault hahahaha hooray for repressed generational trauma

Bahahaha at Plankton. That is so smart that you had your depression meals ready to go. I was in the hospital in October and that was my depression pro-tip the entire time. Meal-prep, clean preemptively, and have a bag packed in case you need to go to the hospital when your life falls apart! 🤣😭

Got an email from Rutgers asking me to complete a survey. Does this mean anything? Guess not lol. 

 

p.s. This survey is actually asking for a lot of personal information. Is this a scam? Did anyone else receive it? 

I got it too! And although I knew this email might mean nothing, I still checked my portal immediately but didn't see any updates...

So after being pretty sure of a shutout, I've just been accepted into a fully-funded MA programme!!!!! Beyond shook 

If anyone has attended UK, please do drop me a message! 

Congrats! I went to undergrad at UK (in the 2000s, showing my age *hides*) as journalism/Spanish double major. I can answer questions about Lexington though if you have any!
