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

Ugh, when am I allowed to email Rochester about my portal saying "decision released," but not actually showing the update??? I feel weird about it because I literally emailed them last Monday for a status update... I don't want to bother them too much, but dangling a decision in my face for three days is just RUDE.

I don’t think it would be bothering them too much. If there’s a problem with the system, they’d probably want to know anyway. I don’t think they’d decide to reject you for asking a reasonable question.

I just looked again and noticed something important: There is no date next to where it says “decision released.” All of the other updates have a date next to them. Maybe they haven’t made a decision and are just getting the system ready for upload? Someone said that they didn’t have this update before, so it seems that all decisions are not ready. I’d wait till Tuesday, since I doubt anyone will answer email on a Sunday, either way.

That's a good point! You're right, I'll give it another couple of days. 

Man, I so desperately want this process to be over. I can't believe I still have 4 more pending schools...

So LSU reached out for a Zoom interview. I replied saying that I've already made a decision. I didn't want to waste their time, to be honest. I hope someone else who wants to go there can be interviewed instead!

Congratulations on making your decision! If you're comfortable, would you mind sharing your choice? I am waitlisted at one of the schools on your list, so I'd love to ask you some questions about the program/school if you were able to vet them :)

If not I totally understand though!

Hey! I posted my acceptance a while ago, I think most decisions have gone out already. 

Thank you! I was checking the results page and apparently was using the wrong search terms. 😳

Based on historic data, I figured they would have sent out most decisions by now (not sure why I haven't heard anything yet). I did reach out last month and was told that they would be delayed this year, due to COVID (which does not appear to be true), and that I shouldn't expect to hear anything until late March. Maybe she was trying to let me down easy? 😂

It is also possible that the school might have a primary/secondary invisible waitlist.

Hi all! Despite what I think may be an encroaching shutout for me, I'm trying to get excited about other things happening in my life. That said, I'm presenting at NeMLA this Friday (it's virtual)! If anyone else is presenting there and would like a friend in their audience, feel free to let me know because I would love to meet some of you and see your neat research in action! I have the day off so besides my panel (5-6:30), I'll have plenty of time to check out people's amazing work.

Omg congrats! I couldn't pull my life together enough to submit to NeMLA this year, but I wish I could come to your panel. What are you presenting on?

The extension for abstracts is the only thing that saved me, lol. I'm presenting on the Irish female celebrity body and it's connections to the Irish landscape in a way that sort of acts as an extension of colonial ideals! But more broadly it will be about Grace Kelly 😅

Wow, amazing. I'm sure your presentation will be great--keep us updated on how it goes!

Does anyone know if there is a thread for soliciting advice on making a choice between English graduate programs?

Maybe in the "Decisions, Decisions" forum? I don't know of one specifically, but it seems like that would be the place for it.

I reached out to Rochester. I was told that the notification on the portal is a “preemptive alert” and that more information would be coming my way in the next day or two. Not sure if I should read this as a positive or a negative, ha.

MY HERO!! Thank you so much for emailing them. What an obnoxious system that puts applicants on red alert for almost a week.

I don't mean to be a pessimist, but given the people who were already accepted/waitlisted... my rejection senses are tingling... or maybe I'm just dehydrated?
