Exact same here! So good to be getting acceptances. I also got an acceptance from Illinois Urbana-Champaign, anyone else hear from them?


Congrats to you! Both are very good programs for pure/applied math. Mind posting your profile on the other thread? Would be a good reference.


I did post my profile on the other thread, it should be up there!

Looks like Columbia is done with decisions. They're posting rejects now.

Is Berkeley also sending out admits in batches or what. I saw that there has been a few Berkeley admits last week.

From my observations, if you see people getting waitlisted and you haven't heard back yet then expect a rejection letter

Does Berkeley even waitlist? I didn't see any waitlists on gradcafe, which is what's worrying me a little bit.

Last time there was a Berkeley waitlist reported on GradCafe was in 2013.

He said there are various fellowships, so they may not all be the same, or each package may even be a mixture of different fellowships. Mine is for 21K for the academic year, not including summers. I forget how much he said for summers, maybe 3 - 4K? I couldn't tell, but I think they are still adding on and finalizing things in terms of distribution of funds. And he said that they will be meeting through Feb 10th to select/ accept other candidates, and that the official letters won't go out until a few days after that, maybe early the following week. Hope that helps!

Thanks! I'm calling him tomorrow. I'm probably not going to UCSC but it's still cool to see all my options. I saw http://graddiv.ucsc.edu/financial-aid/ and you probably got Eugene Cota Robles fellowship.

Yes! That's the one I got! It comes with no TA duties for three years.

I sent an email and found out I was waitlisted there. Do people ever get into Cornell via the waitlist?

I'm a current PhD student and I just talked about job searches with some 5th years in my program over the last week. Food for thought: a fellowship with no TA duties is not necessarily a great thing. It is nice to not *have* to TA every term, but it is good experience - you should ask if it is possible to TA (or even really teach!) if you get such a fellowship. One 5th year student who has several teaching-heavy job offers on the table (which he prefers to research-heavy jobs) noted that the hiring committees seemed impressed by how many different courses he had TA experience for. Also, I expected to hate teaching/TAing, but it is actually quite enjoyable if you have some engaged students, and it helps my productivity to have some structure to my week outside of just classes and studying.

Yes, I was just thinking about this throughout this past week as well! I've been a tutor, grader,TA, and Ross Mathematics Counselor, and actually really love teaching, so I was going to ask about potential opportunities to teach despite the fellowships I've been offered. Plus, I was hoping to apply to be a 'mentor' at USA/Canada Mathcamp next summer, and they really want to see teaching experience, as I'd be teaching my own class there.

What do you, guys, think on Stanford's ICME? I mean I know that Courant is the best, but what about Stanford besides its name and proximity to the Valley? Thanks

I assume your question is directed to me. Otherwise, ignore this answer.

I personally think the choice here all depends on your personal career goal. Do you really want to stick to the academia, or industry? If the former, NYU is an obvious choice (people like Peter Lax, Robert Kohn, Marco Avellaneda are household names....) But the latter, well, having Stanford on your resume guarantees a lucrative, easy path to the world of Tech + VC/PE industry. So I guess you have to ask yourself: do I want to have a chance at being a millionaire, or do I want to see my names printed in all classical textbooks after I die? If I were you, I would have to choose the former, because I'm not good enough to belong to the later case:) Good luck man!

Thanks! Haven't applied to NYU though. Comparing with other schools such as Cornell's CAM, MIT and Caltech's CMS. Also, I guess I would like to keep my options open, including academia and industry. Good luck you too! Thanks again.

I just noticed that 2 people posted on gradcafe that they were rejected from UIC (University of Illinois at Chicago) and they indicated that the rejection came via the website. I just checked my online application, and it does not indicate any admissions decision. Anybody else heard from UIC?

I have yet to receive any correspondence from Cornell. I am hoping that this means I survived through their first round of rejections.

I guess Cornell is continuing with more rejections today. I saw Fw's profile updated to reflect one of them and there are 6-7 new ones on Gradcafe. Have either of you heard back yet? Still waiting here.

I got into Cornell.

FYI, there's a visiting day in Mid-March, but the deadline to tell the university that you'll attend is February 17. Perhaps if you haven't heard back from them by this point, you might not get in.

I haven't heard anything from UCLA either, and they also didn't respond to my email asking for an update which I sent almost two weeks ago.
