But oscarwrites, why is it bad for you? The deadline was Feb 1. Your app was in months early! Historically, people have gotten fiction offers from Hunter anytime between late Feb. and April. On the other hand, I think they admit about 6 every year. THAT's a good reason for white knuckles.

The e-mail that the person (not me) got was to ask if he understood the funding situation at Hunter, and to ask what other schools he applied to--I guess he had left that off his application. But Peter Carey also said he liked the guy's writing sample, so obv. they are reading and sorting, and I don't think he would e-mailed if the guy hadn't made it through some kind of cut.
Okay--enough gossip and speculation for one morning. But really, it's too early for any of us to despair!
