Re: [stephkarto1] Let the rejections begin
[In reply to]
To all those who are waiting:
my official Missouri letter came today. So those of you who are waiting--if your letter has not come, I guess it should come very soon?
Somewhere along the lines, a mistake has been made. Scott Cairns said that I got into the program 'with fellowship,' but my letter claims that I have a teaching assistanceship. The money amount is the same, which is no sweat for me, but the difference is teaching 1 class vs. 2.
How would you handle this? I mean in all honesty, even teaching 2 classes and taking 3 will be so much less work for me to do than the load I have been carrying for too long now, but I do want the clarification. I was sort of feeling all special & stuff thinking I had a fellowship. Hmm...
Steph, either way you should feel special...Mizzou accepts very few people, from what I hear. I'm sure it was just a typo...maybe it was a form letter/template. I'd go more by his words than the letter.
On my end, nothing. Two of my schools--Tenn and Nebraska--have a history of reporting in the second week of March, so I'm not expecting anything from either of those schools until the second week of March.
I haven't seen any reports of accepts/rejects from my other schools, other than an MFA notice from Western Michigan (but I applied to the PhD program).
I hope I hear something this week; this is driving me crazy. Truthfully, it seems like there is less activity at this stage in the game from the PhD programs than last year. Though I didn't apply there, I haven't seen any reports for FSU, either.
