Well that was fast. As soon as it turned midnight, I logged in to the You.SC portal and could see my rejection letter.

Am I the first Writing rejection? :oops:

I got my rejection letter as well. As time went on I figured this was the case. Especially after someone received a scholarship. But I do want to say I'm thankful for everyone that posted on here as it started to prepare me for the inevitable and certainly make things easier.

Maybe if I decide to go for my PhD in a few years. For now I am just going to accept the offer from LMU, get my MFA and see what happens.

For rejected folks. In my rejection letter, they said: "The school of arts faculty recommended that you continue to build your portfolio and apply again for a future semester." I'm wondering if they say that to everyone. They probably do but I was just curious because I applied as an undergraduate.

If you don't mind me asking, which scholarship organization was it? Was it one of the ones we could apply for when we turned in our application? Like Shiram or Lucas? Thanks again for the heads up! E parabens novamente de um brasileiro parcial para outro!
Eu fiquei super feliz quando li que tu é brasileiro! hahaha Foi a HFPA scholarship, mas mesmo com a bolsa, como aluna internacional eu não consigo fazer um empréstimo pra cobrir os dois anos de estudo :(
I'm probably not attending, and now I'm upset because I wanted to have a classmate to speak Portuguese with :\ lol

Would you mind talking about how you got the scholarship? Was there a process to apply (I haven't seen one) or did they just notify you out of the blue?

(I don't understand Portuguese btw I just Google translated your post.)
