We had a thread for this last year where people formally announced what their decisions are (in fact, some brilliant person put together a GoogleDocs document so we could see a summary list of who was going where - anyone want to do that?).  I figured that since a few people appear to either be close to making a formal decision and a few seem to have chosen, we could celebrate where we'll be for the next five years in a thread.  Anyone want to kick this off?

Well, after giving myself a couple of days to come down off of cloud nine, I have officially accepted my offer from UT Austin. Hook 'em horns, y'all!

I have made my final decision. I will be attending The Ohio State University for my PhD in English. GO BUCKS.   What a difficult decision. I LOVED everyone at Riverside, and Irvine is an amazing pro

I just accepted Buffalo and turned down WVU.   Now I've got the blahs. I am very excited about Buffalo, though. Yay!

I still can't make any final decisions until funding comes through and I hear back from two other schools. :'(

 

Why is this taking so long?

 

I'm in the same boat (except for the other schools...I'm just waiting on funding). I am supposed to know by Thursday (tomorrow) afternoon, but I'm starting to doubt that haha.

Oh, yay!  Lots of people posted on the Google Doc already.  Don't forget to include what you're going to be studying, guys - that's part of the fun of seeing who's going where.

I received my final unceremonious rejection a few days ago, making this decision... a non-decision! UNC Chapel Hill, here I come! B) I haven't officially accepted the offer yet because I want to visit first (just in case?), but it's about 99% likely that I will be enrolling there. It's so exciting and scary to be looking my future right in the eye!

 

It's great that I know this now, because I'm having a "thanks for putting up with me while I applied to grad school, and yay, I got in somewhere!" party tomorrow night. Now I can stock up on Hpnotiq, Blue Curacao, UV Blue, etc etc in order to stain everyone's insides a nice Carolina blue.

Ope, I was wondering why there was so little variance in the last column. I've been weirdly shy about sharing my interests, though I realize that no one really cares, haha.

 

Is it bad that I kind of wish there was a column for 'avatar' in the google doc? I seem to associate users more with their avatars than their usernames :P

 

Anyway, congrats everybody! You made it :)

Haha, I was thinking that too. Although I didn't recognize everyone's avatars right off the bat... I've done a Google image search on some of them because it was driving me nuts.

Congrats! You'll love it, because you'd have to be crazy and stupid not to. ;) Go Tar Heels!
