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?

I just got my unofficial rejection.

I wish people would make up their mind. The advisor said I was on the short list and that there weren't many people on the list. Then the secretary said there were 187 applications. What the heck is up with that? Either there weren't many or there were a bunch. Geez.

Sorry to hear about that. That pretty much sucks. You still are looking good with an earlier acceptance. I did receive my ucla news and it was not good. I got it a couple of days ago and I haven't bothered to put it on the sites. Ucla was a total longshot. What has me depressed is someone on whogotin posted that UDub English was going to take a class size of 50 or so..not all of them will get funded. But still..if that's true..ouch. I wasn't even a Top 50 candidate.

ASU is still in the running. They accepted me as an undergrad...maybe they will welcome me again...

Thanks for the advice and encouragement. I'm actually trying to make a career switch into English away from private sector. I won't be able to apply again next year. It's kind of all or nothing for me.

Good luck. I only joined Livejournal on the assumption that I would be on the academic path. I won't maintain my page or take part in the community if things don't pan out. If I do get a hit somewhere..I'll look you up.
