It's About Bloody Time!

Woo-hoo! I just got my FIRST ACCEPTANCE after finding out about another rejection earlier today!

I'm not a total reject after all!

It came from my last-choice program in Very Warm Climate, but fuck, I'll take what I can get right now.

w00t! Congrats :) Just remember that sometimes what you think is your last choice can turn out to be an amazing opportunity/experience.

w00t!!!11!!1!!

The university I am faculty at rejected me as a fucking undergrad. The majority of my successful colleagues either were or would have been as well. Just sayin' that what makes people appealing to admission committees is not necessarily what is most important for long-term success in academia.

Oh, did I say, w00t!!11!!!!??

Congratulations!! So are you going to go visit? Now you also have something to tell #4, they'll want to hear about the acceptance.

Haha - similar to PP's experience, I was rejected from the same school TWICE when I applied to their undergrad program ... but they welcomed me with open arms when I applied to grad school, gave me a couple of awards, tried to entice me to stay when I got my PhD and, just last week, they were begging me to maintain my adjunct faculty status with them.

Take whichever grad school opportunity suits you best and your career will skyrocket from there.

Congratulations!!!!

You know, I didn't get into my first or second choice (for undergrad) and it turned out that my third choice (where I did get in) ended up being a much better place for me than the others anyway.

Of course you're not a reject - what have we all been trying to tell you for the last few weeks?

You're awesome, and this school has the clarity to see it - congrats again!

I unfortunately have no useful story about being rejected as an undergrad/gradstudent but accepted as etc... but I know for shit certain that I would have been rejected as both an undergrad and a grad student at my postdoc institution and yet still got a totally awesome postdoc opportunity there (which was much more valuable to me than either undergrad or grad would have been). My undergrad and grad experiences were what made that happen. So, like they said: the things you think aren't what you want might turn out to be just perfect.

Oh, and so: congrats!!!11!!!24!%#^$@%$

Thanks everyone! It feels really, really good to know that someone wants me in their program. Now I'm focusing on the logistics of actually going there, and still waiting to hear from program #3.

let me get straight to the point:
WOOHOOOOOO!!!!!

have some beers, kick back and know that you ARE wanted. climate transition isn't easy, i went from very cold to very hot. but that's no sweat. well, it is a lot of sweat. but you know what i mean.
