Received nothing from MIT, so I guess I'll receive the rejection email around Feb 14 (I saw on gradcafe that waitlist emails from MIT were also sent out today) :(

Do they send all the emails the same day? I hope not :(

Has anyone had a decision from Yale? I see posts on grad cafe with decisions - waitlists, but I don't have a decision on my page when I log in - it just says application complete. :? Or does that just mean I'm rejected? (the probable outcome)

I was waitlisted. After I login, at the bottom of the page there is a link to view decision status.

Well, I don't have that button. Guess that's a likely reject!

I was told first round decisions of a given kind (Acc, Rej, WL) for a given department were sent on the same day, and that is consistent with dates seen on gradcafe results in previous years. Of course, as people accept and decline first round offers we will see rejections and offers at later dates (some universities might wait till a critical amount of declined and accepted offers are received before sending a second round of offers, most will send new offers as places become available).

I just checked my app for Columbia and UT Austin, no updates to either. Last year, it looks like Columbia sent out most of their acceptances during the middle of February and UT Austin at the very end of January. So we still have some waiting time.

Does anyone know anything about the UIUC acceptances on gradcafe? It seems quite early for them to be sending anything out...

I think its too early. But can you please check your application status and tell me what does it show? Mine just shows "Submitted". Nothing else.

That's what mine says as well... I wonder how the two on gradcafe came about. Maybe they're unofficial?

It is possible that they are exceptional(from UIUC only and UIUC wants to retain them). Or just troll. But i would expect UIUC in first week of Feb as previous year. Good luck to us. :)

Nope, when I logged in to my application it had shown admission status.

I'm guessing that you applied to Northwestern's applied math program (ESAM)?

Or maybe they are students at UIUC, so they can directly asked their professors about the result.

I think it really just depends on where you have applied. Quite a lot of universities don't start making offers until Feb or March, there's just a few (often the very top ranked departments) that start in Jan.

Such a shame, two rejections from Germany, Bonn and Berlin. I am quite disappointed! I do not understand these schools, they do not have the highest ranking, but i still feel like they are really picky about the admissio process!!

European universities hardly give admission to non-Europeans and usually they don't have many open places.
Also, for most of them you need to email their professors one by one and find a supervisor before applying. American system is much better than theirs.

What's up with MIT? Have they finished sending out acceptances? I tend to think so but there's only 2 acceptances and 2 wait lists on thegradcafe, compared to 9 acceptances last year.

I know 4 people who didn't post on gradcafe. Small sample size, you can get big variances.

2 Stanford ICME Ph.D. admits today on Grad Cafe. *sweats profusely*

Who knows, does Stanford generally send out rejections before sending out admits?

UCLA rejections on thegradcafe. I haven't gotten anything yet. If I get through this "alive" I'm guessing I'm on some sort of waitlist?

I can't speak to whether or not you're on the waitlist, but I suppose something of interest to those who are would be the open house date: March 11-12.

Since most folks will want to visit before making up their minds, I doubt the waitlist will see much action before that date.

I hope this helps!

I think the acceptances and rejections are for domestic students only. If you're international, you shouldn't have heard from them yet right?

Im assuming all the Columbia rejections are pure math. For a minute there I was super excited cause I though I made it through the first round of rejections at Columbia apam... oh well, and the wait continues....

A couple of hours ago.

Pure mathematics application, as Kilgore_Trout correctly inferred (my bad, I tend to assume everyone is applying to pure mathematics).
