Congrats on all your CNF acceptances! I did my undergrad at Oregon State and studied with Ted Leeson, whose focus is in non-fiction, and I just want to say that he is an incredibly supportive and helpful writing mentor. I know that they started notifying acceptances for fiction last week, and I spoke to Ted this weekend and he's been sorting through the non-fiction manuscripts, so hopefully you'll hear from him soon! If you have questions about OSU, Corvallis, or just Oregon in general, I'm happy to answer them.
OK, not sure why this didn't post correctly, so here goes again. As on cue, Mr. Leeson just left a voicemail for me asking me to call him back. I am assuming they wouldn't call by phone for a rejection...Anyway, very curious about their funding. I'm delighted that I seem to be getting into these programs so far (3 in and 1 wait list out of 4 that have replied thus far), and I thought I'd be lucky getting into one! I'm of course leaning toward Iowa, but still need to hear what funding package they can offer me as opposed to the others.
