First rejection

I got the Iowa NWP rejection letter today.  I’m obviously not surprised, ever since I saw 3 people post acceptances a week ago, and since someone quoted the program admin telling them that they can only fund 12 people.

The count is 2 for 3.  It may be 3 for 4 with Rutgers-Newark.  I’ll be calling Montana tomorrow.
