Hi. I'm a newbie here, just getting hooked into the waiting game for the first time. I'm really curious about UNCW too. I hadn't realized that the schools were starting to notify until I got acceptances from UC Riverside and University of Iowa (WHAT??? Still stunned...) in Creative Nonfiction by phone message yesterday. I also received a letter saying I was waitlisted for Ohio State. I haven't heard from any of my other schools, including UNCW. With the Iowa acceptance, these will likely be icing on the cake, depending on what kind of aid package they are going to offer me. the general consensus is that I would be nuts to pass up Iowa for one of the others. Trying to shift my thinking, because I really didn't consider that I would actually get in to Iowa, and had been dreaming happily of living in one of these other, much more appealing cities. Now, gulp, it looks like Iowa City may be my home for the next three years.
But, now that I realize that they are starting to notify, does anyone know if any of the following started notifying, and if so, if they are calling or mailing?
U of Montana
U of Georgia
Cheers, and good luck to everyone! I know what a process this has been, the crazy hoops I have jumped through for months on these applications. So here's to everyone getting in somewhere! I see people assuming that if they got rejected from a less desirable school, then they assumed they were rejected from higher tier schools, and clearly my story shows that is not true. Waitlisted at Ohio, but accepted at Iowa so far, and Iowa is ranked higher. So I think it's good to realize that a rejection doesn't necessarily mean anything in terms of the other applications.
