Last year, it looks like MLK Jr. Day was pretty sleepy. I wonder if we'll get a big week starting tomorrow now that JMM is over...

To come up with a better time killer than refreshing gradcafe, does anyone know of programs which post placement information? It's sucks that this isn't more common for math programs, I know in econ at least basically everyone gives placements.

I know Columbia, Virginia and WUSTL post their phd's placements.... well, the latter two's placements are simply not good.

EDIT: Washington University's placement turns out to be much better than I initially believe. As a tiny dept producing 5 PhDs per year, they have 6 graduates having tenure (all are full profs) at top 30 math since 1991. This is unusual for a tier-2 program.
Also TAMU, UNC Chapel Hill, Rice had their placements posted.

lol yeah, yikes at the uva and wustl placements. Makes me wonder what placements looks like at the bottom programs. I guess basically everyone goes into industry?

Indeed, I am. Congrats on the admit! The results anxiety is just hitting me today. You should startthe Fall 2014 Admissions and Rejections thread. Here's a link to the 2012 thread so you can see a template:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=777&hilit=results

What better way to start that thread than with an admit? :D

Ladies and gentleman,

I believe I'll hear everything in the next 39 hours to 16 days, if I'm to received any acceptances. All I have to say is:

the first page of math phds reports on gradcafe still has offers from last year...
I guess math is just slower in reviewing applications than other majors

I'm guessing there are maybe about a hundred or so absolutely outstanding candidates who get offers from everywhere they apply.
As is then commonly known most universities overoffer to offset the overlap e.g UPenn (although not a top school) is very candid about this and say they admit about 35 people with the view to enroll maybe 14 (https://www.math.upenn.edu/grad/graddata.html).
This also means that some spots (though likely very few) will open up once the amazing people have decided.

Cornell CAM just sent a save the date notification for admitted students weekend. It seems weird to be told to save the date when I'm not sure if I'll even be admitted...

I don't think it's only top tier. OSU, Chicago, U Wash, Princeton have. Lot of others like Penn, Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Berkeley have not.

The recent greens on gradcafe are mostly offers from MIT and Chicago, and some from Princeton and Yale. UW's Math Dept is still silent, the Applied Math has given one (suspicious) offer, though.

Mine still says "pending"... Is it supposed to say that if you have turned everything in? I hope that doesn't mean that they haven't even received all my materials yet.

My thought is we shouldn't be so worried if we hear nothing this month at least.

In theory u should just be patient. Yes they r still reviewing. In practice, anyone without an offer is more or less anxious

It could also be that there's just much less candidates being accepted in mathematics departments.

Yeah, I thought the wording of that subject line was just cruel. "CAM Admitted Student Visit Days" . . . my heart jumped. I can see that they are trying to be considerate, giving people time to clear their calendar just in case, but the subject line could have been something more like "CAM Application Reviews in Progress, Important Upcoming Dates". You know, something that made it more obvious it had nothing to do with admissions decisions :roll:

Today Oregon State's math graduate committee chair e-mailed me. Apparently one of my recommenders forgot to submit for Oregon State. At least they cared?

The Applied Math offer is pretty likely to be correct. I recently got an offer for even more than that one from UW Applied. I prefer to keep my info off of GC though since at least for now I don't want to be identified by anybody at the institutions I'm accepted at. Others may be in a similar situation, preferring to submit their results only when they see others doing so.

Blah, sucks to hear that uw has sent out offers (but congrats!). Re GC: I also would be hesitant to be the first to post an admit to GC (if, hypothetically, I were accepted somewhere). Thinking about it though, this is probably extreme paranoia and I can't imagine that posting on gc would reflect negatively on you whatsoever, even if someone the school was able to identify you from the post.

Also, looks like some Ohio State admits are up.

It's definitely paranoia, but all the same I'd rather not do it. I still don't think the majority of UW applied math offers have gone out though, I think this is just their fellowships right now.

Think about it. How many people are going to reject the offer? So I'd assume it's less likely than for some other schools, but still possible. Nothing you can do about it now, just hope for the best.

This is a short list for probably top domestic applicants. So nothing to worry too much

EDIT: One of the applicants' detailed background is available on this website. Apparently Vandy is just his safety institution.

Nope, International. You?
Hopefully they have only contacted the domestic acceptances and they don't make international calls due to the time differences? We can always hope.
