Okay. So, amidst the madness in this grueling waiting process, I may have also managed to over-analyze something that just came to my attention. I have recently become aware of the idea of "Likely Letters." Is this a possibility for a graduate program? Brown, my top-choice school, sent me an e-mail about two weeks or so ago, thanking me for applying and giving me information on when responses to offers of admission are to be received. It was sent by the Dean of Admissions, I think. Furthermore, it was addressed at the beginning to the personalization of my first name, specifically. I just am somewhat hesitant to believe out of the hundreds that have applied, each applicant received a personalized e-mail of this nature *(If so, then, this school is even more committed in its diligence than I gave it credit for!).
I am certainly not wanting to get my hopes up, by any means. I simply wanted some insight on these supposed "Likely Letters," and whether any other MFA applicants to Brown or other schools, in general, receive this sort of e-mail, weeks after submission, as part of the general reviewing process.
Thanks a ton!
I remember getting an email from UNLV instructing me on how to set up my UNLV student email. And then I got a rejection from them a couple of days after that.
