  • Big ol' stinky rejection in my inbox this morning! They're only accepting a cohort of 10, and they weren't my top choice, but it still sucks.

  • I doubt I will be able to accept the offer because of the cost. Haven't heard yet about aid.

  • I bit the bullet and called. They've alerted people they've admitted (6) and wait-listed. They're holding off on sending rejections to see how many folks decide against accepting offers, but likelihood of being in this program starting in the fall seems minuscule if you didn't hear news by today.

  • Seriously who is in charge of admittance?! No wonder your program has fallen by the wayside like U of Iowa. MFA Film Production from top 3 film school, Student Emmy Winner, Student Academy Award Finalist, MA in Film Studies from top 5 University in the entire world, 1 publication, 1 forthcoming, and 5 conferences. I would say good luck to the admitted, but I'm sure you'll produce mediocre research. Bitter...just a bit. You did me a favor Pitt. Deuces.
