whoever posted the yale acceptance to french studies...when did you receive the phone call and from whom? would you mind sharing your research interests?


I got the phone call on the 4th of February around 6PM from Howard Bloch. I'm interested in the 19th century novel, and the intersections of literature and history, the novel and the sciences, generic studies, and "close readings" of texts (à l'instar de Barthes, Genette, etc.). Maurice Samuels told me they were the first French department in the US to send decisions, and frankly it caught me off guard how early I got the phone call. It also caught me off guard that it was a positive response! I'm also applying to Columbia, U Chicago, and Harvard, haven't heard anything yet from them.

Good luck,
