*one paragraph of moping* I'm starting to lose hope over getting into USC PH.D in fiction. I know how absurdly low their acceptance rate is, and it appears that they already accepted their fiction writers (though I can't seem to locate an actual person from 2009 in fiction); this coupled with the fact I'm in Argentina and it takes mail even longer to get here than it does in Chicago, it looks really bleak. And that's a huge bummer because I would have loved to study with TC boyle, Aimee Bender, Marianne Wiggins + Percival Everrett, not to mention being close to my mom in SoCal. Sad times. . .
Re: [theootto] What PhD programs have reported???
[In reply to]
This leaves FSU (Ph.D) and NYU + UC-Davis (M.A.). Considering I haven't heard a single response any of the four schools and I have a MFA from a good school, several publications, I can speak two foreign languages and I have a tons of lit classes, I swear to god I could scream at the top of my lungs because there's absolutely no guarantees for the application process. Wait, I already did that.
I hope you guys hear from your schools soon, and have many acceptances, because I haven't heard anything and it's driving me fucking insane! Suerte Chicos!
