Yale just had a visitor day with 7 admits. They may sent more if those decline (I have a couple friends who went). Columbia has at least one admit, though it may be unofficial (friend of a friend has been admitted). Wish I could say it was me.

I have been accepted by UC Boulder and RPI, but haven't received financial information, or official department acceptance packets. My spring break is coming up next week - should I try to make plans to visit these schools, or is this arranged and coordinated by the department once they figure out their funding situation?

Haven't heard anything personally from either Yale or Columbia (pure math), but a (also pure math) friend of mine heard back from Columbia. I don't know if it was an acceptance or rejection.

As far as the probabilities are concerned, it would be great if they misidentified my score. :wink:

Has anyone been rejected by University of Arizona after skype (or phone) interview with prof. Kennedy? I just end my interview few hours ago, and I just want to make sure that if anyone was rejected after this procedure. Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Just sent off emails inquiring about the status of my application to both Caltech and Berkeley. Hopefully they decide to put me out of my misery sooner rather than later.

if we dont hear anything from UMD AMSC, I'm pretty sure we can take that as a sign that we're informally waitlisted.

i wonder if sequestration might affect our potential funding...

I called them on Wednesday. They said they were still processing the applications and would be working on the applications in the next two weeks, although they had already sent out SOME first-round offers.
For some reasons, I still have some hope, guys!

Well, they do accept applications until February 15 so maybe there is still a chance. I'm really hoping to get in man.
Good luck guys!

Bizarre. How are they still processing applications this late... I can see maybe processing further information requests, but they just had us upload those on the ASF anyways. Strange.

Oh yeah thats true. Well good luck to everyone who applied there.


Thanks marco! Hopefully, it means that the first wave has been decided but not yet sent out, and probably those already notified were those who got additional fellowships. any counter examples ? (someone who got official letter of admission from UIUC but without fellowship).


I have an official letter of admission on Feb 5 with just a TA offer. I haven't heard from anything about a fellowship, except for the summer REGS program, so I suppose I am a counterexample. I hope everyone hears soon

So I just got a 16000 CHF fellowship for Masters in Math at EPFL, Switzerland. It pains me thinking about turning it down because of the opportunity to study intensive French and the advanced math courses I could possibly take. I have only heard from CMU, got rejected by Brown DAM my dream school, and still waiting for Cornell CAM and Columbia APAM. Not that I'm saying that I don't like to attend CMU but the prospect of having a higher chance of getting into Brown after a masters at EPFL is making me crazy thinking about what ifs!

Any thoughts on this, guys??

This seems like an awesome opportunity, that I doubt you would regret. IMO *shrugs*

And I didn,'t make it past the shortlist at UIUC ....so sad. I officially have gotten nothing but rejections lately....given that I haven't heard from anyone else informing me I'm on the waitlist or anything, I've given up hope that anything good will follow.....I guess I'm going to LA...

@Legendre: congrats.

@Eowyn: You will become a legend on this site. 9/10 for an international applicant.

@UMD AMSC applicants: I think their admission strategy is one of the worst for a top 25 school. They have not send a single rejection till now, not even to the people who didn't get the further questions and I don't think they do so till April.

@transfinite(anyone else waiting to hear from UIC?): Another admit on GC for UIC. That too for applied math. And no word for me. Sigh.

UCSD send out emails at exactly 11:55 local time again.
CSME. The email mentioned "Mathematics program majoring in Mathematics". Rejected. 6/6. Add Maryland to that 7/7. I don't know what I did wrong, but I should be a perfect case study on what not to do in your graduate applications.

Edit: Is anyone else still to hear back from UCLA?

Do either of you have a decision field(right below the status) in your Application Summary? If yes, what does it say?

In my application summary my status tsays that "Application Materials Received - Please await further updates" and there is no decision field or something like that. Does yours say it?

Same status as yours. Right below it, there is a decision field that says "Referred to College for Review". Don't know whether that is a good sign or a bad one, if any.

Thank you... but honestly, I feel that much credit goes to my recommenders... my grades are not bad... but at one point of time I never felt I'll make it to a single school. And in the end, whichever place we end up in, we must make the most of the opportunities that come our way and try to be as happy as possible... and believe that whatever happened, happened for the best...

I really think that next week is going to be crucial. I hope schools finally make their move and accept or reject their applicants.
I would really like to know my destiny :shock: .
