UMass-Amherst: Rejected

As you know, I’ve been waiting to hear back from UMass about my application to their MFA program. This morning I received an email telling me that a change was made to my application status. I logged in to check it out.

I didn’t get accepted.

I found the entire process odd, since UMass usually send out a letter and then waits 21 days to change the status online. I don’t know if I just never got my letter or what, but none the less, I wasn’t accepted.

I’m strangely okay with this. It leaves me with no decision over which school to attend. I’ll be going to Lesley University. I’ve heard nothing but good things, so there’s no reason that I shouldn’t be happy about going there. I still wish I could know why UMass and PLU didn’t accept me, but there’s no use wondering about it. It’s over and done with.

As a side note, I’m in the middle of moving, but I’ll be back to write again soon. A post on dealing with rejection may be in order.

Happy writing,
