I'm really wanting to check about Rutgers, since they seem to wait until mid-late March to send rejections. I have spoken with a professor there about working on a specific research project, but it seems inappropriate/awkward to contact him directly.


I would email Rutgers. Just email the graduate secretary if you don't feel comfortable asking the professor specifically. I emailed the graduate secretary about a request they had made on my application and she told me:

"Our Admissions Committee has finished their review of applications to our PhD program, and has begun to make their initial offers. I regret to inform you that we are unlikely to make you an offer. Your application does have multiple strong points. However, we have a large pool of over 350 applications, with many impressive applications, including yours, and with only a few openings this year, this forces us to turn down many strong applicants. We wish you the best in your future career."

I'm guessing you can probably find out where you stand if you shoot off a quick email.


Dang, that's scary. Rutgers is probably my top choice as well. I'm not quite sure if I'm ready to rip off the band-aid like that.

In other news, literally just received a rejection (via email, never contacted them to ask) from Cornell. Bad way to start considering it was my first result, but nice to finally hear back from somewhere.

I also emailed Rutgers and got the same exact response. Although the band-aid hurt, knew it was a reach so at least I could put the dream behind me once and for all...

I know of one person who received an acceptance from them, but it doesn't seem like many people have gotten a response. I'm pretty anxious, too.

Rejected from UC Davis. Someone on the grad cafe said that michigan state already sent out all acceptances, so i emailed them asking, and they said they are still reviewing applications and to check back in a few weeks.

So I heard from WUSTL and apparently I've been wait listed. If you're not planning on accepting PLEASE let them know because I have another offer I have to reply to in a couple of weeks.

How did you hear from them? Was it in response to an email you sent to them, or their official wait-list announcement?

I applied pure math and I'm pretty sure this was in response to my email a while ago (I think I emailed the same day you did cjh)

My OSU "departmental internal procedure" status, after being marked as incomplete for a while, is now marked as "waived." What's also weird is under the comments section for that section, the comment "dept. is paying" is listed, and my three recommendations and textbook form are still listed as incomplete. Does anyone know what this means?

I saw your post, so I checked my status. My recommendation sections were marked incomplete before either, but now they all appear as completed. I guess they are matching the files. I will wait for another week and see what happen. Why don't you email them ?

phew, Just got an official admit from UCSD too. After the initial elation I thought it might have a been a mistake because there was no unofficial notification and no word on funding. So relieved!

If UIUC won't make a move today (or tomorrow, which is highly unlikely), it will break a longstanding tradition ...

Well, if we can trust gc then Caltech should send out lots of rejections these days (last year was 2/24)
I really hope none of you will get one ...

February 23rd, 2012 is the nearest Thursday last year to February 21st. Some results from the Grad Cafe during that date:

Of course we know that many schools alter their timelines, but perhaps some of these same schools will send some decisions today...?

Woah, I just got rejected from Indiana. I have no idea how that happened as I thought I would be a shoe in considering the fact that I got accepted into much better places. Also, I know people with much worse gre scores who got in.
