AND that makes me 0-10-1 (one waitlist at McNeese). I called Florida State and the lady told me that all acceptances have been notified already, but that waitlisted individuals will be notified anywhere between now and April 15th (sort of like the cable guy saying he'll be there anywhere between 9 AM and 5 PM). So, while I do not have definitive word from UF and UNCG (whom I will call tomorrow), I will most likely be roundly rejected with the exception of one waitlist (good thing I ended up appyling there!). I knew this would be a possibility, but it really sucks. At least I can move on. Don't know what I'm going to do with my life now. I've become a little addicted to both the MFA blog and this forum, it's going to be tough not checking it every five seconds for information.
I wish I had some words of advice to future applicants, but from what I hear, it is pretty normal to be roundly rejected the first go-around, so I guess my only advice would be that shit happens. I will most likely apply next year, but who knows what will happen? My writing sample didn't suck and I still got rejected everywhere, even from some lower tier schools. So... don't know what to say.
