  • I don't really understand why Purdue would reject me. I have a 4.0 GPA, tons of experience as an English TA, Writing Assistant, and English tutor, a study abroad experience at Oxford, a strong writing sample, strong rec letters, etc. I'm so surprised. The only reason I can think of is the fact that I didn't go to a big-name school for my undergrad. Anybody else surprised?

  • Bittersweet since I didn't get offered any aid, and I don't think I'll be able to afford it. I'll be sure to send them a decision ASAP for anyone on the wait list! 2a/1w/14r/1p

  • Emailed when I never heard anything back after rejections were released. I am on a waitlist, which is very exciting to hear, as it would be pretty neat to go here.
Boston UniversityEnglish, Masters (F19)Wait listed via E-mail on 8 Apr 2019 8 Apr 2019
  • I had followed up with the department over email & just now received a nice note saying that I was on their unofficial “wait list.”

  • Could anyone tell me the stipend amount they were offered? I am curious if I was offered the same thing. Thank you!
University Of OregonEnglish, PhD (F19)Other via Other on 8 Apr 2019 A8 Apr 2019

  • Was on a secondary waitlist (of which I was informed only after inquiring) and knew that admission was extremely unlikely. Was told that the "vast majority" of the applications they receive are for 20th/21st centuries (my area) so it's especially competitive. Nice to have made it this far in the process.

  • Canadian. Heard previously after email query that I was not accepted. Received official letter via post. It was short, concise, and honestly nice. I was impressed after reading the negative comments from prior years. The worst letter, most discouraging was from UG-MFA.

  • I emailed them directly to act about the status of my application & they replied letting me know there wasn’t room for me in the program. I don’t know why they’ve been waiting so long to send out rejections, it’s kind of ridiculous!

  • To the poster(s) below, the accepted students visit to PSU was March 24-26. There were 12 of us there, some who got into the MA/PhD, and a few who had already earned MAs at other institutions and got into the PhD program. I think a good amount of the people at the visit were leaning towards Penn State or had only been accepted there. Those who have not heard yet, you're probably on an unofficial waitlist as they made what seemed rolling acceptances this season (I heard in mid-February while others heard in late January).

Penn State UniversityEnglish, PhD (F19)Rejected via E-mail on 5 Apr 2019 A5 Apr 2019
  • Also got the rejection email and could not believe how impersonal and informal it was for APRIL 5. Also, did anyone get accepted for the PhD program this year? I never saw anyone post acceptances, only for the Masters program. Geez, at least personalize it with applicant names!
Penn State (Pennsylvania State University)English, PhD (F19)Rejected via E-mail on 5 Apr 2019 A5 Apr 2019
  • Honestly awful. Waited until April 5 to send an e-mail that begins with “dear APPLICANT.” Couldn’t even out my name in it. “Dear Applicant, Thank you for your patience as the admissions season progresses. I'm writing to let you know that we are not going to have space in our program this year for you. We only have a limited number of spaces (twelve to be exact), and everyone in our program is fully funded. I'm sorry the news isn't better.”
