Anyone else waiting on Purdue's MA?
I am surprised it has taken so long to hear back. Are they any good for terminal MA..and for placement?
I was accepted to Purdue's MA program last year. I declined because I also had a funded offer from a PGR-ranked MA program and Purdue's offer didn't come with any funding. I asked about placement and was told that recent applicants had gone to Memphis and Loyola Chicago, while others went to law school.
If it helps anyone, I declined a funded MA offer at Miami Ohio and a spot in the Stony Brook MA program this past week. I'll be doing the same thing with the Boston College MA program early this coming week.
where are you going instead? I would have thought that Stony Brook MA is a pretty attractive offer.

Is anyone else non-accepted, non-waitlisted, and non-rejected at CU? I think their waitlist is quite long, so I don't think they'd need a waitlist for the waitlist.
My rejection was in my spam file.
I don't, but as my homies and I are on a bunch of really nice waiting lists, we are hoping that you may be able to inform all of us here of programs you plan on (or maybe even just leaning toward) declining in the coming days.

Of particular interest to us are the following programs:

Michigan
Arizona
CUNY
Brown
Indiana
Wisconsin
Colorado
Riverside
Florida State

Hola at your boy(Z)!
Hi, I'll probably be declining florida state.

anyone who got funding from Purdue planning on declining?
Someone floated a rumor earlier in this thread that Purdue had either no funding or almost no funding this year. I know that this is the case at several schools; for example, Marquette can only make one funded offer this year.

It seems almost inhumane to not have told the schools in which you are definitely not interested.
It seems almost inhumane for 5 schools not to have told me anything.
Can grad schools rescind their offers of admission if I do horribly on the final semester?
Yes. But you have to do pretty horribly. I believe your offers say "contingent upon receiving your final transcript." Check it out.

Has anyone received a rejection from UCSB? They are one of the only schools I have yet to hear from.
Shitting Dick Nipples! I fucking hate this process! I don't know shit about my future because of fucking wait lists. Fuck them. Ass-fucking-bullshit!

P.S. Fuck.
I feel your pain. Perhaps most of all, I desperately want to know where in the hell I'm going to be living in like 4-5 months.

Some schools tell rejects (and others) how many applications they received for how many spots they had. I've been wondering about how truthful they may be. For example, someone noted that U of Maryland only had 3 new spots for this year and that they were told this in a rejection email. But there are already 3 acceptances on TGC, which usually is only a sample of the real number. I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about this. Are they just trying to let us down easy by giving us bleak numbers?
I believe 3 was the targeted size for the incoming class. This means they would accept more than 3, because the chances of their top 3 choices all accepting their offer is very low.
Am I correct in assuming that Duquesne makes several more admitted offers than they have fully-funded spots? If this is the case, I guess a position on the wait-list isn't all that great. I think I'll stay on though and see how things go. Anyone have any anecdotal experience with the Duquesne department?
I'm a student there buddy. Let me know if you have questions.

Does anyone knows how long the wait list at UMass tends to be? I notice that there have never been any WL posts on GC until this year (and that post happens to be my own) so I'm hoping it's short. Is anybody else here wait-listed?
Just declined a funded offer ($9k TA-ship) from the M.A. program at Wisconsin-Milwaukee. It seemed like a great place. Hope this helps somebody on the waitlist!
Thank you for doing that early. Can I ask where you are likely to go instead?
Those who have questions about Duquesne, I can't answer your questions so do not e-mail roehllm@duq.edu (This is my e-mail). Some crazy person has tried to initimate me, which I hear is the sincerest form of flattery. In this case however, it's not that cute...slightly creepy actually.
I'm sorry to have bothered you. I just don't understand what enjoyment there might be in posting someone else's e-mail.
