I pressed for an answer from Penn State, my final school, in order that I could make a decision with all the information available. This is part of the answer I received:

Our program is very small--we admit two people in each genre--and so very competitive. You should also know that due to grad. school guidelines here, we must weigh GRE scores heavily in admissions. This year we could accept 6 total, out of more than 100 applicants. It is quite possible that we will need to make additional offers to writers of non-fiction, but I can't predict how that will go. For now, I can only say that your name was not among the top two.
So, I'm out at Penn State. Funny - I don't have so much as a tickle in my tummy over it.
