Re: [germericanqt] arizona [In reply to] Can't Post

I got a very nice rejection letter from Irvine today. I should not regard thier decision "as in any way a reflection on the quality of (my) submitted work." See email rejecters it can be done nicely on real, even nice stationery. I'm so confused however how the rejection letters go out. I look at people who weren't rejected by Brown until March 23rd and I'm jealous -- did you guys make it to 3rd rounds and they figured out that they didn't want me in the first round? Probably! Ah, that's life.

Re: [Khalilah] arizona [In reply to] Can't Post

Got my Irvine reject letter yesterday, too - dated March 17, from Michelle Latiolais. One of the TSE posters wrote that he got a phone call from her this week, with an acceptance. Not sure if I believe him, but he wrote that Michelle and Ron Carlson are the only readers of the submissions, and they are going at a snail's pace. This is apparently why the rejections and acceptances are slowly rolling out, and at the same time. They seem to know what they like when they see it (those are the lucky ones who get the phone calls) and know what they will definitely "not recommend for admission" when they see that (the letters for the rest of us) :-(

But, yeah, it does suck to know we probably weren't "considered" that carefully -- just part of their forward momentum process of rare accept and mass reject. Aw, well. "Forget it, Jake, it's Irvine."

Re: [Khalilah] arizona [In reply to] Can't Post

Oh, man, I haven't gotten a letter yet from Irvine. It's the last school I'm waiting on, and it would really change what I'm deciding between now. I e-mailed their department (I'm fiction) and never got a response. That was a week or so ago.

I guess I'll just wait for the letter...

Oregon and Houston [In reply to] Can't Post

Got my official letters of rejection from U. of Oregon and Houston (fiction) over the weekend (snail mail). Fortunately, I expected the former and had already e-mailed and heard about the latter... Now just waiting on 2 more, officially.

BU and American [In reply to] Can't Post

Got rejected from BU via postal mail today (I'd been waiting for the letter for a while now, I was about 99% sure I didn't get in since all calls had already been made) and American via email.

I'm done, folks! 1/6, the 1 being Emerson's MA in Publishing program. Still haven't decided if I am going, I am waiting on financial aid.

Received a rejection email from Arizona State U. today, not that it matters, I've already chosen happily but the email subject said ASU DENY LETTER! Booo Booo. I expect better from educated people making decisions about people's futures.

I'm still waiting on their rejection. When I called way back when, I was told I was on their unofficial waitlist. That's it in terms of commucation from them. . .

Re: [v1ctorya] ITS DONE -- MY NOTFICICATION PERIOD OVER [In reply to] Can't Post

When i applied to MFA progs 3 years ago I received my rejection from Bama in JULY. I was packing the uhaul to move cross country to Montana and had basically forgotten I never heard from them. I know it was just some weird clerical error, yet amusing to be surrounded by boxes and dust bunnies and then there's this envelope. Uh, thanks.
