Congrats to the NYU comp lit admit!


Recommended Posts

Hey what's up, so I think this is directed at me.

I don't really know what I can tell you; I was sitting down with my roommate to watch a movie at like 8:30 at night (I'm 6 hours ahead of the east coast) when my cell rang with my caller id reading "unknown." On the other end was a man who sounded serious and was speaking English, and somehow I instinctively knew this was something to do with grad school. I think it was John Hamilton, but all of the blood had rushed out of my head by the time he introduced himself and the entire conversation was a blur. He said they wanted to extend a "very enthusiastiac" offer of admission to me and then talked a lot about funding.

Other than that, I'm not sure what to say. My stats are good but by no means perfect. I imagine it really comes down to writing sample, LORs, and language training. I wouldn't read too much into it. Some schools send out all admissions decisions in a blitz and some stretch it out over a month or more. My feeling is that NYU may be the latter. I saw on the results board that somebody got into UChicago Comp Lit in January, and I've yet to hear from them. I'm not tripping about it and you shoudn't either :)

A) This is exactly what I imagine will happen if a POI calls me. If I manage not to sound like a gibbering idiot, I'll be very surprised.

B ) I love your attitude. I wish I could be this cool about acceptance updates. Every time I hear someone has gotten into a school of my choice, I immediately have to pull my brain back from the cliff.
