This is my top choice, a total reach, and I'm kind of a mess waiting on the decision. If I get into UT, I get to stay in Austin with my significant other. If I get in nowhere I can also stay here if I like. If I get in to another school, I have to move.

Last year they started notifying around February 18th. Anyway, just wanted to have a pity-party with anyone else waiting on this program.

I also applied to UT-Austin (specifically to their Digital Literatures and Literacies program) and I, too, am still awaiting a response. Hang in there! I'm sending good vibes your way!

I know right. The wait is killing me!

I applied for the Ed.M. in Higher Education Management and I can't take this waiting anymore!

Yeah, I got that email as well, but it says: "Professors on the admissions committee will be making admission,

denial, and wait-list decisions by the end of February 2011. If you have not heard from us by March 1, 2011, please contact me

through e-mail." I'm hoping this means that a lot of the notification will happen toward the end of February (hopefully the last couple weeks) and that not hearing by March 1 would be an unusual circumstance.

Can I safely assume that you received these e-mails in response to inquiries? I haven't heard anything since before they began the review process.

No I didn't, I just got an email randomly. BUT. I want to stress that I'm positive that if you didn't get it, it doesn't mean anything, assuming your application was complete and everything. If you'll see in the Wisconsin thread, some people were kind of freaking out because they didn't recieve an anagalous email about knowing by Feb. 14. I got the email and others didn't and I got rejected. It means nothing; it's random.

I'm waiting on UT-Austin too, and although it's definitely one of my top/dream schools, I don't have high hopes. Fingers crossed! And hopefully we'll find out next week!

This was one of my top choices too. That early deadline snuck up on me and I rushed to clean up my writing samples, inevitably making a bunch of errors in my second sample. And I've been lamenting that fact for two and a half months. I want in to UT so baaaaaaad.

19th century American lit. It's not a perfect fit but I would DIE if I got in.

As I write this I have to wonder if these demi-gods who decide the rest of our lives ever check out this website for a cruel chuckle....

I had the same problem with the early deadline; I submitted sub-par documents too, but once they were edited, I sent in my edited documents, and the program coordinator replaced the ones I submitted initially. VERY nice woman, from my email correspondence with her. Keeping digits crossed!

Me too. Does the admit want to share any information? If numbers stay the same, they've admitted about 20. . .I sure hope that's the case this year as well. Congrats to the admit and best of luck to all of us waiting. . .

Yes, good luck! That's a pretty good-sized cohort relative to most other schools.

I really wish I weren't at work right now. It's impossible to concentrate on anything.

I see an acceptance.

Is this a real one?

I am so nervous.

Ahhhhh! Congrats to the lucky applicant who posted their acceptance!

Excuse me while I commence with the nervous twitching and stomach butterfly-ing now.

Gah! An acceptance! I wonder if they do it in one shot, or in rounds? Has anyone here scoured the results pages to see what they've done in years past?

Mine doesn't work. When I enter my info I get a status box that says when I last logged in and then I click OK and it gives me an error screen that says HTTP Status 404. . .

Looks like they did them over a couple of days last year, and there were some rejections before there were any acceptances.

Also my page hasn't changed either.

GAAAHAHAHDHGFAGJ
