  • Applied to the PhD program; got a call last week that there were too many qualified candidates who already had MAs (I only have my BA), but that the faculty wanted to offer me a place in the MA cohort. Today, received an official letter and a preliminary offer of 4 renewable semesters of TA-ship that covers all tuition and provides a $5,500 stipend each semester. I ain't mad!
