Congrats to the USC acceptee! Do you have any additional information you could share? Was your call from a professor or the Grad Director? Were you a fellowship nominee? I am wondering because this seems early for USC. Thanks for your input!

Hey,

From the sounds of the phone call, it seemed that I was nominated for and received a fellowship (which may explain why it was early...but I've noticed two others post USC before me). The guy was director of graduate admissions and left a very nice voicemail. I don't know if they're having an admitted students weekend or what, since the time that I'll be flown out seems very loosely defined at the present.

Btw, to everyone still waiting, this morning I myself was in an absolute panic/depression-spiral over 8 of my programs already getting back to people and not me. So I know it sounds very trite and hard to believe if you're still freaking out, but just cause you haven't heard anything yet doesn't mean that you can't hear amazing news tomorrow. Stay strong and remember that if that doesn't work, Girl Scout Ice Cream is currently available in stores.

Thanks for the positive comments, and I appreciate your input. I suppose I will hold out and hope that he is not done making calls.

I am totally there with the downward spiral; three of my programs have notified their acceptances. I am going insane; it does not help that this is round two for me.

But congrats on your good news! What is your field of specialization?

I focus on Renaissance Drama and Pop Culture/Film (originally, I was going to just say Renn Drama in my SoP and slowly sneak in the other one over the years, but one of my professors said that sometimes a split interest can help get a department's attention). Most of my research revolves around the intersection of disgust/horror and enjoyment, particularly around the body, its sensations, and other objects associated with it (food, shit, etc.).

Hope this helps. Best of luck (and believe me, I know how you feel right now....it sucks and I hope it doesn't last long)!
