I applied to Univ of Washington's English Dept as an MA student. I am eagerly awaiting word back. When did you receive your acceptance? Was it through the mail,email, snail or by phone?

If I get accepted people...I will tear the roof off this mofo and crank up the traffic! You can guarantee it! This site seems a bit too quiet.

Finally...anyone play pickup soccer on or near campus?

Hi there,

I haven't even gotten the notification of your livejournal comment yet, but I saw your result on whogotin so I wanted to come by here and tell you how sorry I was to see what the result was. I still haven't heard back from U Wash and its driving me a little crazy. :(

Keep your chin up, last time I applied, I was only accepted to one program and that was an MS only program. I hope you have better luck than I did and I hope one of the PhD programs will come through for you, preferably with lots of funding. :)

If the worst comes to worst, you can take a year or two off, pay down your undergraduate student debt (if you had any) and then reapply in the next cycle or in two cycles from now. That is what a ton of my friends are doing. Or you can try to take graduate classes as a non-graduate student, some departments will let that happen.

If there is anything I can do to help you with anything, please let me know. I know how heart-wretching it is to have your heart set on a school but rejections come out. Did you ask them how you can make your application stonger for next time? If not, you should ask them because that will really help if you have to reapply. Please let me help you if I can. (And feel free to friend me if you want.)

Where else did you apply? If your posting access is any indication, we have two other schools in common (Arizona State and UCLA), neither I have heard from yet though UCLA I think is notifying people already.

Thank you for the well-wishes, I hope everything turns out well for you. I expect that you will get into a grad program some time and if not, I can give you access to a ton of advice about getting in the second time. Many of the people on my flist are academics and are good about helping grad students or potential grad students.
