Any updates on the Minnesota front? I know they just had their visiting weekend, so people must be making some decisions - either for or against! I'm on their waiting list, and it's definitely my top choice...soooo I. AM. DYING.

Hey, sportsnerd! This really isn't good news for you, but I'm pretty certain I'll be accepting a spot at Minnesota in the next day or two. However, there were only four Ph.D. people at the visit, and I think they admitted 8 or 9, so maybe some of those people who weren't there will be declining? I don't know about the other three Ph.D. people who were at the weekend. Best of luck! What's your subfield?

Hmm, interesting - thanks for the update, lyoness. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to join you. :) My subfield is 20c American/AfAm lit.

Sportsnerd, of the 4 of us there, 3 were early modern/medieval (including me) and the other was 19th century, so it looks like the person accepted in your area didn't come, so that could be a good sign! PM me if you get in; I'm more than happy to share what I've learned. Good luck!!!

... Anyone? ...

I have yet to hear from two of these programs and am waitlisted at one. The wait is torture and I would really like a trip to Atlantic City until this blows over. Of course, an acceptance this week would be just as awesome. If anybody officially declined one of these schools, please share.

Hello! Is anyone declining Kent State, Old Dominion, Loyola or UNLV?

lyon,

At the weekend, were there any victorianists/19th brit lit? How was visiting Minny?

Stormy: I am waitlisted for funding at Kent State (and "very, very high" on the list, supposedly). I am likely to decline in any event. I'll post when I do.

I just turned down a funded offer from U Minnesota's RSTC program, and I just accepted an offer for Clemson's RCID program. I'll be turning down an unfunded offer for NCSU's CRDM soon.

Anyone thinking of declining Rutgers Comp Lit?

Also - I've pretty much lost hope for UBC now, but if anyone has a last minute change of heart I'd be delighted ;)

I'm going to accept an offer at Florida. I'll be declining a funded offer at UMASS and an un-funded offer at Michigan State. I'll also be bowing out of my spot on the waitlist at Southern Methodist.

Best of luck to those who are still waiting.

Edelweiss--would you mind sharing your sub-field? Thanks!

She or he was the early comics admit. She or he says it in the UF thread in this forum. Hope that helps! (I'm sure that she or he will verify that for you.)

Yes, this is correct. I'll be on the Comics and Visual Rhetoric track.

Also, for what it's worth, I'm a girl. ;)

I've declined offers from the schools crossed out in my signature: UC Davis, Ohio State, Rochester, Arizona State, and McMaster. I also removed myself from Toronto's waitlist.

I see from the results page that five Vanderbilt "secret waitlisters" (it sounds so much cooler than it is...) have been rejected. Is there anyone else (like me) who is on this list but hasn't heard anything?

Also, have any Maryland waitlisters heard anything?

Still waiting. No word at all on any of my three wait lists OR UNLV (who hasn't notified anybody at all yet)
