Just got my rejection from U of Oregon. I am bummed because it was one of my "safe" schools (and an excellent program), but my application was very rushed and the program was not the best for me. I applied mostly for the location and the university, not personal fit (as I have learned - huge mistake!) 

Good luck to everyone still waiting!!! 

You shouldn't be bummed, then, since it clearly wasn't a good fit!

I just checked OSU's website. I GOT IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "Congratulations - you have been offered admission! Use the link on the main page of the Applicant Center to accept or decline

I'VE BEEN ACCEPTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND! Thank God! I cried in my office for an hour because this is the best news I've heard all year. 

Guys, I've just been accepted to BC I'm completely in shock, I knew they only accept  like 4-5 people so I applied assuming I'd be considered for the MA! Email said I'm accepted to the PhD i

Brandeis is killing me! I think I have checked my email and that website a thousand times..today alone! Are you going to the visiting days at Tufts?

 

Yes - both Brandeis & BU!

I'd like to go visit Tufts - I'm supremely lucky in that I live near there - but I haven't heard anything about visiting days. I was going to email a student & ask about that. Can you please tell me more.

Accepted to Chapel Hill! And on Saturday night, but the email went to my Spam folder! Anyone waiting on them, be sure to check yours.

 

Final response, thank god this is over and I can get to the decision-making. 9a/0w/8r

I am so glad you said something about the Spam folder. I was waitlisted at UNC yesterday and would have had no idea if I hadn't seen this!

I just received word that I've been accepted at the University of Indiana Bloomington's PhD program! This was my reach school--every other program that I applied to was just a MA.

I am shell-shocked. I need to sit down. I AM SITTING DOWN. What is happening!

So are we all under the same assumption that Yale is done, and has been for a while, but just hasn't sent out mass rejections?

That's my going assumption! Then again, that was also my going assumption about UNC for several days...and then I got waitlisted. So I'm considering Yale an implied rejection for anyone who hasn't yet heard, but I suppose you never know until you know.

For what it's worth, while I mentally cross "implied rejections" off my master brain list, I don't cross things off the physical list that sits pinned to the wall behind my computer until I get a definitive answer either way. I suppose that makes me a mental pessimist and a physical optimist? Hmm...

I just got rejected from Brandeis. Sad day

I'm sorry about that - it's very sucky news. :-(

How did you find out? I still haven't received any notification.

Thank you. But keep your fingers crossed - you're on the Tufts waitlist and you got into BU's MA program. Things are still moving forward, right? I'm going to go to Tufts on the 16th; will you be there?

Goddangitt, guys. ASU is all like "We have an amazing FYC program--hybrid courses, stretch courses, advanced courses! And Shirley Rose is here! Teaching here would be lovely." But now that I'm waiting on news, they're all like "-----------."

But congrats to all of you on your newest acceptances! Especially you FSU folk! I missed that deadline, and I've kicked myself every day since.

Same here (although I'm also waiting on UBC at this point). Are you leaning more towards UofT? I know I am!

Sorry for the late reply — but yes, I am definitely leaning towards UofT! Just booked my flights for visit day, and have been giddily researching the university / city. 

 

ETA: I'm also seeing a lot of recent Boston College MA admits on the results board! If anyone here is considering the program, free to message me with questions.

Just so y'all know.  Decisions from Yale are hiding in the portal, just below your basic application info.  Looks like they just uploaded a bunch of them today.  

A no for me.  And with that, I'm off to Notre Dame!!  Couldn't be more excited.

 

Thanks for this notification! Yale was the last one I hadn't heard from, so I'm now greatly relieved to be able to focus on the birds I have in hand as opposed to all of the ones that are in the bush...or, pecked my hand and flew away, rather.
