Re: [EastCoastPoet] I'M IN! Can't Post

i am the emerson acceptance on seth's list - nonfiction. i sent my application wicked wicked early, like mid-november. my guess is emerson does their apps uncw style - quasi-rolling. good luck.

Congratulations, that's awesome. And I bet you weren't even expecting it that late in the day. Bonus!

Re: [renapoo] Davis Can't Post

Thanks, guys! Yeah, it was a big surprise. Haven't heard from my other ten schools yet. I'm guessing Cornell will reject me soon enough...

Amherst! Can't Post

Got a call at around midnight Central Europe time - I'm in at Amherst! And living abroad apparently didn't deter them from notifying me.

Still waiting to hear from Syracuse, Hollins, and Johns Hopkins. Wheee!
(I'm Fiction, btw.)

Congratulations, maggiekate.
Another Wisconsin acceptance here.
Got the call around 8:00pm last night.
How [strangely] thrilling.

Re: [whiskeytown] Davis Can't Post

Congrats! I currently live in northern WI... (but for some reason I didn’t apply.. Actually, I think the date was on the early side for me… I wasn’t ready) it is a beautiful state though, and Madison is great fun.

About 10-15 days until this shit gets really nerve racking! (for me… and I‘m supposing a lot of others, too)

Re: [ecphraticknolls] Davis Can't Post

congratulations everyone who is newly accepted.

ecphra: isn't wisconsin the program where they only do poetry one year and then fiction the next? i think that's why I didn't apply: it wasnt' my year :)

i applied to both UNCG and UMass not because I really wanted to go to either, but because I felt I needed a wide net as it were... I probably wouldn't have gone to either if I got into other programs, but now i'm kind of sad. like "you didn't want me?" kind of sad. anyone else experience this? though perhaps this isn't the proper forum.

well, huzzah to those who are in now.

Re: [malber] Davis Can't Post

malber -

I wouldn't give up hope on UNCG just yet...their general deadline (if you're not applying to be a TA) isn't even until March 15th.

Congrats to everyone who has heard! I'm still waiting nervously...

Re: [malber] Davis Can't Post

i'm not applying till next year, but i'm wondering if i can possibly read anyone's submission?
i'm just curious at the levels/types of writing, whether you got in or not really...

don't worry, i won't use yours, i'm just dying to see the standard.

thanks in advance, good luck guys

Re: [malber] Davis Can't Post

Yeah, well, I get that a lot.

When I told my parents I was applying in poetry they were like “Isn’t poetry for girls / something about it being gay.”

oy...

o well, they are actually VERY good people, so you'll all have to excuse them.

Re: [Jendago] Amherst! Can't Post

Hi everyone! I just heard the good news from Umass Amherst today! I couldn't wait any longer, so I broke down and called the MFA dept., and was told I'm on the acceptance list for fiction.... no word on funding/TA fellowships yet.. but I am in a total state of shock. Good luck to everyone else who applied...

Re: [OliviaKate] Amherst! Can't Post

Congratulations. So let me guess this straight, you hadn't heard anything other than what has been posted on these boards, so you juck picked up the telephone and called to see if you got in? haha, that is hilarious. good for you. have a great day.

Re: [OliviaKate] Amherst! Can't Post

That's great OliviaKate. When I called all they said was that they're notifying everybody by phone (obviously), so if you don't get a phone call soon, you're out.

Right. I've got to stop hanging out here. I'm starting to feel bitter.
