Actually if I remember correctly from past years, Colombia has tended to notify based on subfield, so I wouldn't draw too many conclusions here.

I do hope you're right. I had thought that was just for interviews. Either way, I need to devote all of my remaining hope to Penn's waitlist, so I will remain pessimistic and be happily surprised if proven wrong!

CONGRATS @automatic !!! I just got in at exactly 3:47pm too and I'm an early modernist. Currently deciding between Columbia, Princeton, and Rutgers - hope to see you around the area :)

Thanks so much!!! You too, that's amazing!

I just got into Columbia!!!!! I actually did not post on the board, so that must be another. I have been rejected from all 7 of my other programs, and this was the last place I was waiting on, and I just got accepted. Oh my god. I am beyond happy, grateful, and shocked. I've been looking at options for next year assuming I'd have to apply again for another round. YOU GUYS. 

THAT'S SO AMAZING!!! Huge congrats! So glad you got into a great program for you!

Just saw a SUNY Binghamton acceptance on the board? Anyone wanna claim that (begins checking email constantly all day).

Delaware is a good fit for me, but options would be nice as well

Thanks @punctilious! And I'm really happy for your husband's Harvard acceptance.

 

Thank you for rooting for me, @M(allthevowels)H !! That waitlist notification was my first positive response in an otherwise crummy season and I guess that showed. This is my top choice anyway, so couldn't be happier! :D 


Congratulations @Noire et Étrange, that is amazing!!

I received two lovely emails from the Louisville grad assistant and director of the graduate English program stating that they would love for me to attend (I have been waitlisted for funded so emailed back last week saying I really admire the program but can't attend without funding) and will keep me updated immediately of changes on the funding waitlist, so I feel pretty encouraged. Program director even asked if I'd like to set up a time to talk on the phone more about the program and so he can answer any questions I may have. No matter what happens, the graduate faculty at Louisville has been so extremely kind this entire process and I'm very impressed by that.

Hi all, 

I am a lurker who finally made an account to be able to post to the forum. I was wondering if everyone who applied to the University of Toronto's English PhD received the funding email request for forms on the 16th, or if that implies a shortlist has been made - I saw the post on the the results board and wasn't sure if receiving the email was a good sign or if it's just a standard practice for U of T.

Yay! They sound like really good people. Fingers crossed for you.

I got that e-mail on the 15th, so I'm assuming it's standard practice. U of T seems to do things a little differently, though, so who knows?
