UCSD! With apparently some sort of 4 year fellowship. This shit is surreal.

If anyone here has been accepted to UNC and plans not to attend, I would very much appreciate you letting them know!

I know someone else who turned them down earlier today, so hopefully there will be an open space for you. It seems like today and tomorrow is going to be a bit hectic.

I'm also deciding between UNC and another place, but currently it's 51 - 49 UNC. Ugh.

Sadly, it was not to be. I got their rejection last night. However, this means I took UCI's 30k offer with awesome research and flexibility, so all's well that ends well.

Anyone declined an offer from Louisiana State University yet? It's my only chance now. Please decline it today if you plan to go elsewhere. :cry:

Nice. I actually took UNC's offer and turned the other, coincidentally also 30k, offer down. I'm having mixed feelings.

I don't know where to go. I've narrowed my choices down to Utah or Chicago. I'm 60-70% sure I want to do something in algebraic geometry and 100% sure I want to do geometry. Anyone have any insight?

What did you decide on?! I'm honestly a little surprised that you're contemplating Utah over Chicago (I'm supposing University of Chicago)! You can't go wrong with either though and Utah does have some amazing algebraic geometry as I'm sure you know!

I think I'm leaning more towards Chicago, just because I'm afraid to commit so heavily to algebraic geometry or geometric group theory. Where did you decide to go? Did you attend Utah's visitor's day?

Just got a reply from LSU saying that they have granted a one week extension to two students to decide if they will come to LSU. If they do decide to come then they will have no further assistantships for fall 2014.

If you are one of those two, please decline their offer soon in case you have offers from other universities. LSU is my last chance so I will be very grateful for your help.

Are you seriously asking people to decline their offers just because they have offers from other universities? How about they should choose wherever they want to go, and take their time, so that they're sure they're making the right choice? GTFO. :roll:

^^ I'm thinking he is saying in case other people have already accepted offers elsewhere, but have not officially rejected ones from LSU (he said that a few posts ago explicitly.

Well, OK, I figured, but I get annoyed by posts like these, and thegradcafe has also been littered with this crap. It's not like people are just sitting on their asses. I mean, he said that those two people explicitly asked for extensions. Did they ask just to screw with him? No.

@Ryker, I am really sorry that it annoyed you. I am very distressed and frustated and probably didn't write my post the way it should have been written. I never meant anyone asked for an extension to screw with me. I was just requesting those two to decline the LSU offer soon in case they want to go elsewhere. Again apologies.

Why u guys are so mean? I don't see any problems to ask someone declining offers if he/she is sure that he/she won't attend, especially LSU is his only choice now. Plus that it's already April 16 now, not declining LSU if someone has a better offer doesn't make sense

Yes, it is a thing. It feels nothing, let alone compassion for fellow applicants.

He shared his opinion, I shared mine. In the end, what does it matter?

Congrats on your admission, dasgut. Otherwise, you will be here for another year. Keep working though you are not quite math material due to your persistence in this forum like a chewing gum.


LOL. Why you coming at me, bro? I was talking John Connor, not John Geller.
