Re: [persephassa] Brown Can't Post

Thanks!
It's scary to know they've made the decisions, but definitely helpful information! I'll be watching my mailbox even more anxiously (as if that's possible), now.

Carole Maso is your adviser? HOT. I ... jesus...wow. Is she as badass as AVA and The Art Lover make her sound?

Just a note...Brown updated their website today.


"All admissions decisions will be mailed by Friday, March 14, 2008."


I don't even know why I'm checking their website....but of course, I am.

Re: [SaraBellum] website Can't Post

Hey, that's tomorrow! Yikes!

Next week is going to be it for me. UVA will notify then, too and I'm just waiting on my Brown and UVA apologies before I can really and finally move on.

Unless there's a miracle. Come on, Brown. I love you, won't you love me, too?

Re: [monarca] website Can't Post

Yeah, me too. I should be hearing apologies from Sarah Lawrence, Brown, and UVA... all next week. GAH! Then I'll just be waiting on Bowling Green, which hasn't made a peep.

Re: [pensive] website Can't Post

It's the fact that the letters will all be mailed "by Friday" rather than "on Friday" that will still have me checking the mailbox twenty times today. Every time a car drives by, I run to the window and peer out the miniblinds, like a dog waiting for his owner to return.

Re: [anon.novelist] website Can't Post

So where do things stand on what Brown fiction candidates have actually heard? I've seen the news reporting calls, but the post(s) didn't come from someone who has actually received one. Has anyone said or heard anything more?

Re: [kengland1] website Can't Post

The Brown literary arts homepage has updated. It indicates...

"All admissions decisions will be mailed by Friday, March 14, 2008."

So...more waiting.

Re: [achtung00] Waitlisted! Can't Post

Are you poetry or fiction, playwriting?
Congrats! Brown - its huge! I am sure you got chances since those admitted people could get into other big programs and decide to choose Iowa over Brown (Cornell, etc.) Plus Providence is expensive. Not everyone is ready to move there for 10k first year stipend... So, donít give up!
Can I ask you in which state do you live? Just trying to figure out when to expect a letter from them....

Re: [bunnytutu] Waitlisted! Can't Post

Thanks so much!

No advance contact at all. I was walking home like a character in a rainy French movie lamenting my rejections, saw the skinny letter through the door, decided to read it for kicks and discovered it wasn't a rejection after all! I felt like I'd been nominated for an Oscar, or something. Hoping to call someone (who?) on Monday.

By the way, I live in Brooklyn.

mail. but actually, to be fair, there was kind of an ordeal involved. they e-mailed me, then called me, and then told me i had to wait because they could not ensure an acceptance. but then the letter came and that is how i was officially noticed. phew.
