Re: [ummmliz] I'M IN! [In reply to] Can't Post

Congratulations Ummliz. You don't need to tell them that you are waiting for other schools. They expect that. Just thank them for the offer tell them you are excited and honored and promise to let them know by their deadline.

Re: [unsaid78] UC Irvine [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks. I had already sort of counted UCI out. Here's the list:

Johns Hopkins: accepted
Michigan: accepted
U Mass Amherst: accepted
UCI : accepted

IWW: Rejected
Cornell: Rejected?--I'm in CA so it takes a while for NY mail to get here.

I only applied to six schools.

It's a tough decision, as soon as I make it I will post in the appropriate thread. Going to school library to check out the books of some of the faculty.

Good luck everyone.

Re: [v1ctorya] I'M IN! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah Let me second V1ctorya on the only bringing up other schools specifically in economic negotiations. This is exactly how I ended up parting ways with VaTech. Indiana made a better financial offer in the negotiations.

Re: [v1ctorya] Acceptances [In reply to] Can't Post

Congrats on the Maryland acceptance! Any word on funding in the letter?

I have my fingers crossed for Maryland, myself... but mail is only delivered two or three times a week where I live and I don't expect that it will be picked up before Monday. I suppose I can be hopeful until then :)

Re: [SevenFreckles] Acceptances [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks everyone! I'm so excited! :)

Seven, the letter only said they'd notify later this month about fellowships and TA positions. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Oh, and I live in DC so I probably received my letter quickly. I'm of the impression they're just starting to notify so keep your eyes on the box! Good luck!

Re: [Raysen] Acceptances [In reply to] Can't Post

She has such great hair, what else is there to get?

Haha, no, I'm totally joking. I love her writing especially on the level of line-to-line narration...but I also think she pulls off wonderful spins in such a short space.

Thanks so much! Good luck with the rest of your schools, and on deciding, and on everything. It's been good fun, reading your posts. :)

Re: [megmarcu] Acceptances [In reply to] Can't Post

I also don't get Deborah Eisenberg. I've read her short story collection "Under the 82nd Airborne" and others. Some of her paragraphs are very well constructed and her prose is interesting, but at the end of each story, I felt a bit...

underwhelmed.

Like, was that it? Is that all?

And after a couple weeks, I've totally forgotten what she wrote. So, I don't quite get the appeal. Plus, she has way too much dialogue for my taste.

And that's the thing about this literature business. It's all subjective, it's all about taste. It's so warped that a cruddy writer like __________ (rhymes with Stan Clown) can earn millions while a really good writer like, say, Louise Erdrich, has to run a bookstore. (I don't really know what her personal financial worth is, btw)

Re: [megmarcu] Acceptances [In reply to] Can't Post

Congrats megmarcu!!! I kind of wussed out of applying to Brooklyn at the last minute, but it's so amazing that she's the program director... If Amy Hempel ever called me, I'd probably drop dead from excitement.

Edited because I didn't mean to say "congrast" : )

Megmarcu, congrats on Brooklyn :) are you going to go for a warm or cold climate, then? I remember you said you got into a UC school too.
