  • About the poster below on being rejected May 5th: I thought there was an April 15th deadline for schools to share results? Is this a myth I was led to believe? I hope not-- I've still got two pending applications I was banking on hearing from by next week...
(Arizona State University) ASU(English) - Creative Writing (Fiction), MFA (F18)Other via Other on 6 Apr 2018 A6 Apr 2018
  • Does this seem like a wildly long time to wait for a rejection? App still "in review," with others rejected over a week ago! ASU, wyd.
Miami (OH)(English) - (rhet/comp), Masters (F18)Other via Other on 6 Apr 2018 A6 Apr 2018
  • Still haven't heard anything. I'm not freaking out you're freaking out.
‌Boston University (BU)(English) - Creative Writing Fiction, MFA (F18)Rejected via E-mail on 3 Apr 2018 A6 Apr 2018
  • Boston sent me three rejection emails. I guess I didn’t get in but can’t be sure. Need more emails to confirm. 0a/ 7r/ 1p I may have overused the term “stink-butt” in my sample, statemants, and transcripts.

UIC(English) - Creative Writing (CNF), PhD (F18)Rejected via E-mail on 6 Apr 2018 6 Apr 2018
  • I'm pretty sad. I was waitlisted last year and rejected May 5th 2017. I was encouraged to apply again, did so and am now not even waitlisted. I know it's a competitive program but I feel miffed. I hope the people who got in go and love it--if not there are many who would have been happy to take your place...
New York Univerisity(English) - Creative Writing (Fiction), MFA (F18)Wait listed via E-mail on 15 Mar 2018 A6 Apr 2018
  • To the poster below- I was waitlisted too. Did admissions ever get back to you? I imagine we should hear soon because of the April 15 deadline. Would like to be put out of my misery already...
Illinois At Chicago (UIC)(English) - Creative Writing (Fiction), PhD (F18)Rejected via E-mail on 6 Apr 2018 A6 Apr 2018
  • The deadline for submission was December 15. The cost of applying was $70. And I am just now hearing a decision. Almost a week into April. Cool.

  • To the suicide poster below: Me too. And to the original poster: you may or may not wind up accepted in a program. You may or may not wind up writing acclaimed or best selling work. But unless you have a truly terminal illness, I promise you, if you keep going, you will look back on your difficult time and be grateful you did. It does get better. Please stay and find someone to talk to.

Ohio University (Athens)(English) - Creative Writing Nonfiction (CNF), PhD (F18)Accepted via E-mail on 5 Apr 2018 A5 Apr 2018
  • Lol...got this acceptance immediately after getting a job offer. Will be declining.
The New School(English) - Creative Writing (Fiction), MFA (F18)Rejected via E-mail on 5 Apr 2018 A5 Apr 2018
  • Wow, I am such a piece of sh** that I got declined from my mediocre safety school with a 75% acceptance rate. 0a/6r/3p. I've reached the point of logically thinking through the option of killing myself.

  • To the longwinded Iowa poster below: you are both overthinking the (perfectly innocent) question and misunderstanding the Frost quote. He meant it ironically. Best of look to you on your path though.
The University Of Illinois At Chicago (UIC)PhD English - Creative Writing, PhD (F18)Wait listed via Website on 5 Apr 2018 A5 Apr 2018
  • I'm not sure how/when others have gotten an email. I checked for days and saw nothing and when I checked (for the fifth time) the online applicationthe status finally changed to waitlisted. So just a word of warning, notification may not actually appear in your email.
Purdue University(English) - Creative Writing (Fiction), MFA (F18)Rejected via Website on 5 Apr 2018 5 Apr 2018
  • The terse form rejection coupled with how late it took them to notify applicants makes me feel significantly more confident about my decision to accept a wonderful, fully funded offer. Not feeling fuzzy about Purdue (also NC State and Indiana University--cutting it really close for those applicants who are in the midst of tough decisions and university deadlines)

  • I still haven't heard anything yet. Maybe they forgot about me.

Purdue University, West Lafayette(English) - Creative Writing (Fiction), MFA (F18)Rejected via E-mail on 4 Apr 2018 A5 Apr 2018
  • I emailed griff@purdue.edu a few weeks ago, and then I sent a follow up a few days ago. Needed to tie up loose ends and make a decision. Figured it was a rejection, but wanted to be sure. Jill emailed me back yesterday will an informal rejection, saying formal email would be out soon. That's it for me! 3a/0w/9r Some final thoughts: Apply to a variety of programs. Take a chance on programs that are in weird places, younger, and/or up and coming. Don't go $50,000+ in the hole for this degree. Find some place that is either affordable or will at least partially fund you. Only apply where you would actually attend. And realize the subjectivity and inherent unfairness in this process. A lot of this comes down to luck. Don't be so hard on yourself. Life will take you where you're meant to go.
