Update from Florida, got a very nice call from a wonderful faculty member at Florida. The reason I wasn't given an email was because they had to chop the bottom three poets from the waitlist, and I was one of the bottom three haha. Oh well.

I’m sorry 😞 It’s their loss! 
 

Still exciting that you got waitlisted there!

BU rejection came in! Honestly super relieved because I am just falling in love with another program and didn’t want to have to make a difficult decision. 
 

Anybody got good news? 

Dude same. I don't think I really need my answer from CU, I've made my decision. When a program feels like it crafted for you and how you write and work and you connect to faculty and the curriculum, then the decision becomes much easier.

Yeah the only one I would be a little torn about would be BU. Columbia was more just for my vanity... no way to afford and honestly not interested in the size of the program, and already not getting a good feeling from the institution anyway, lol. Not sure if this is just our coping mechanism working at its best but I think I'm making the right decision. It just feels right!! 

When I started looking at Amtrak and Chinatown buses to Boston... I was already like, please no. hahaha

Haha, no I get it, it's definitely a vanity application. The longer we wait, though, it's true, the more turned off I am by them.

hey all!!! anyone here apply to hunter college for poetry? if so, have you heard back? thanks in advance!

Yes. I think its okay for me to say now that it's finalized, but I got my offer a little while ago. There are 4 of us so far I think. (that seem to be prospective students).

I was really hoping for a waitlist /: but I guess I’ll be heading for the UK after all! 

it said the waitlist could drag into the summer so do you really, really want that? I'm so happy that this is all over, haha. 

I hope you have the best time in the UK!

The Columbia letter said that the waitlist "has no rank"... but it must do??? how else are they going to decide who to let in when the first spot becomes available? 🤔

There are waitlist pools where everybody exists until the adcom happens to go through the pool and pick who they like. It's shitty, just like a ranked waitlist, but in a different way.

Denied at CU. No word yet from BU. I saw some rejections and a poetry acceptance. Any one know if there have been any BU acceptances or waitlists on Draft for fiction?

Anyways, this looks like a wrap for me, apart from a waitlist that I'll probably decline. Have to mull my meagre choices while I hit up my opiate rod tonight. Don't think I want to go through this again.

Thanks!!! And yes, BU e-mailed rejection this morning. If you didn’t get it, maybe a good sign?

I would hypothesize that they'd choose the waitlisers based on who turned their spots down -- i.e. to ensure aesthetic diversity in the program. Just a theory ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
