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 program, but in the end OSU is the place for me.

 

Yayayayayayayay!! Congratulations! I'll see you in August :)

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

kudos!! OSU is lucky to have you! now get out there & celebrate!!

 

Thanks! I was about to go celebrate, but then I heard about this attack in Boston. I am very distraught over it, all of my family is in Boston (my sisters are marathon runners - both ok). The explosions were right near my undergrad institution. Please everyone keep Boston in your thoughts.

You really couldn't make a bad decision.  See you at OSU in the Fall!

Made it official last week: I will be attending the University of Kansas for my MA. Is it weird that after all the e-mails sent and the websites checked off the decision still didn't actually feel final until I filled out the Google doc? Regardless, congrats to those who have made their decision and good luck to those still pondering!

 

Nice choice! I'll be seeing you at KU.

Congrats again!   :)  You were one of the posters whose final decision I most wanted to know.

 

But yes, the Boston Marathon bombings really put a damper on things.  My thoughts are with Boston residents today...

It's been a while since the document has been reposted: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UN6wbbIFRmKTvGb_zPMgRdWmVf-pkTO0fU8ikGshkPM/edit

I got a little misty browsing this document. Just last year, we were all freaking out together over letters of rec, statements of purpose, GRE's, and finances-- all while discussing such important issues as Doctor Who, Buffy, and Girls. We've debated, discussed, supported, empathized, cheered, advised, and shared. What an amazing community we have here, and now we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor in the fall! 

 

Go us!

Alright, it's as official as it will ever be, now. After being told on Friday night that my chances were slim, and that it would be surprising if they made an offer, today, I GOT INTO OHIO STATE off their wait list!!!! 

 

Apparently the Renaissance faculty fought super hard for me today.

 

And, after dealing with some other stuff (see thread entitled "Help!") this afternoon, I made it official-- I'LL ALSO BE ATTENDING OHIO STATE IN THE FALL!

 

I'M SO EXCITED!

 

Thanks everyone for being such a great, supportive community! And thank you, sebastiansteddy, for being an especially awesome supporter over the last two months! It's truly terrible what happened in Boston today, but I'm happy to hear that your family is okay. 

 

I can't wait to meet everyone on here headed to OSU in the fall.

Whoa, so many Ohio State people. Congrats to all! We are now enemies.
I heard you guys are contractually obligated to fight to the death for your football team's honor should your paths ever cross at a conference......
