Haha I always forget about the statistics people and it freaks me out because their admissions seem to come out much earlier

Rejected from Columbia here as well. It was my super duper duper reach so I'm not surprised, but still. Bummer.

Waitlisted at Stanford as well. Anyone knows normally, when would they notify the decision to waitlisted applicants? Thanks

I wish I would hear from Stanford... I expect it's a rejection, but I'd just like to know. Maybe it's later because I'm not American?

It is quite clear from their email that there is no fixed time lapse for that notification. They will give offers of admission to waitlisted applicants as places become available due to accepted applicants' rejections. You can see on gradcafe that last year there were offers off the waitlist as late as April 10th.

By the way, MathCat, I am international.

Thanks for your reply. Continue the waiting game then!

Hi I also applied for Stanford. Did they send you an email to tell you that you are waitlisted?

Hi, yes, I received an email from a professor there saying that I am on their waitlist. Hope that helps.

You guys should post your results to grad cafe! You don't have to include any identifying information if you don't want to. If you don't know what this is, see the math results page at http://www.thegradcafe.com/survey/index.php?q=math*. The forum is at http://forum.thegradcafe.com/.

Has any one heard anything from UT austin? It is kind of scary that there is no info yet though some schools sent their rejections 2-3 weeks earlier than last year.

I was contacted by faculty some two weeks ago and received their official offer last Tuesday (21k as TA, Texas resident tuition minus 3k, which results in some 1.5k tuition fees).

Is it applied or pure math? If so, they indeed moved up schedule for sending out decisions and rests are rejections I guess?

- I've been hearing some things about Maryland's "3 questions" during their admission process. Anyone know what that's about? I have searched to no avail.

- Anyone else applying to KAUST Applied Math?

Apparently the AMSC program sends out 4 questions during the application process.

Just a simple search of this forum "university of maryland questions" brings up a result from 2011 with information:

I see one acceptance from Brown and one from Cornell. Any idea what the deal is with these acceptances? Has anyone here heard anything from either Brown or Cornell?

I see profiles of some rejected applicants on GradCafe, compare with my profile and then I lose hope entirely. For a while.

Is it confirmed that Austin sent out offers already?

I've heard back from both Rice and A&M already. Both good results! Any insight behind each of these programs and their strengths?

I've seen posts on GC about Toronto, MSU and Austin also. Do they send first round offers earlier to domestic applicants? Are there any international students here who heard from these schools? I've sent my TOEFL score a bit late, does anyone know that it might cause some sort of delay? I am extremely stressed!!! Wish all of us luck and patience.

Someone heard back from UMinn. They posted in the results thread here. But I don't think many UMinn acceptances have gone out.

Dear people, especially those veterans who have already applied and been accepted in previous years...
I am currently on two waitlists (Stanford and Princeton) but have not written any answer to the emails that notified me of that condition. The truth is I have nothing significant to add to my application (prizes, papers, etc.) but some people in my country are saying I should show "continued interest" by writing to them. Given the fact that they are top-ranked programs, shouldn't that continued interest be taken for granted? I'm afraid that writing to them with no clear purpose might look like harassment.

Thanks!

I really don't think they're looking for you to add more stuff to your application. I emailed about sending last semester's grades and other updates and they said "it's not necessary".

Hello everyone. After revealing some results from brown university, I checked the website and my application status was still complete. As my prof. sent my recommendation late, I want to know my application status must be complete or it must be something like to dept. for review or etc?

Stanford and Cornell use the same application system, and when I was rejected from Stanford, nothing changed on my application page. It still looks the same. But after being accepted by Cornell, there's an option to view decision letter and to fill out decision form. If I click view checklist, it still says Complete as my status, though. I don't think that ever changes.

I noticed that there were several rejections from Georgia Tech yesterday on gradcafe. There were at least two students who were accepted there a week or two ago but there were no new accepted students on gradcafe as of yesterday. Has anyone else heard anything from Georgia Tech recently? I have been neither accepted or rejected so I'm hoping that I'm still in the running there.

Somebody who posted on thegradcafe said he emailed to ask for his status at UCLA and was told he was rejected. Is this something worth trying? I know they're probably pretty busy but it kills me knowing there might be something I can do to find out whether I will get an offer.

MathCat wrote:The posted acceptances at Berkeley are making me sad :(

Yeah me too. But judging by how it's gone so for I probably didn't have a shot there anyways.
