As you know, I’m hoping to start working on an MA in English next year and had applied to U of T and York. I just received a letter from U of T telling me I’m on the reserve list and will find out if I’m accepted in April. I can’t believe it. I have an A average and strong references. I honestly wasn’t worried about being accepted. I just called them and learned this is the double cohort year (they cut grade 13 in Ontario 4 years ago, creating two years worth of students entering university at the same time—these students are now applying to graduate school). Also, with the pressure to accommodate this there are fewer part-time positions available. So, I’m making an appointment with the director of the program to talk about my application, though I’ll probably end up going to York (providing they offer me a place) rather than wait another year for U of T.
I’m so disappointed. I work so fucking hard and it never seems to be enough.
