I know someone who literally got in every top school : harvard, mit, princeton, berkeley, chicago and yale. But this person is the first such person I’ve ever heard in my life.


I would expect this to happen for a few students every year actually. If you get into Princeton+Harvard+MIT (all pretty small programs so they really don't admit that many people), your application is probably good enough to get into all the other top schools. I knew of at least 2-3 people in my application round that were admitted to at least 4 out of 6 of Harvard/MIT/Princeton/Stanford/Berkeley/UChicago, and I don't know that they were rejected from the remaining ones. Most likely I just didn't know they also got in to the others, or they did their undergrad at one of those institutions or didn't apply to 1-2 of them due to research fit or location. I would be surprised if it wasn't that common for e.g. the top graduating undergrad at Harvard to not get into nearly every top school they apply to.

Same question. I really like the program at Purdue. I am wodering if any international students got admitted to Purdue yet ?

I notice that you have been admitted by some better programs, like Wisconsin, Northwestern etc. Congratulations for that. So does this mean that you would choose Purdue instead of the others provided you were admitted by Purdue? No offense, just curiosity. Right now I have no any offer yet. Very reluctant to gap a year. Btw, would you please to tell me as you get response from Purdue? Thanks in advanced.

Purdue has some specific people I want to work with. The only school in my list which is better than Purdue is Wisconsin but I will probably decline Wisconsin if they give 15k TA-ship like 2 years ago.

I'm guessing if you haven't then your on an unofficial waitlist. They've already sent out a few rejections already, so I am guessing they're just whittling down the waitlist.

I emailed Madison and was told: “the final decision of your application has not been made.” Personally I would interpret it as being waitlisted.

I know someone who is waitlisted by Utah. I think he received an email. I am not sure.

Haven't heard anything from Utah. As per grad cafe, the wait listed students got an email, and the rejected applicant's app status changed online. I haven't heard back and the status online is still the same. Should I be worried?

Emailed Duke and they said they have sent all offers out already. So if you are like me and haven't heard anything yet, you are most likely rejected :(

I received an unofficial offer from Syracuse yesterday. It's an email from the department and it seems like they don't post result on the website.

I emailed Cornell yesterday. They responded that there is a "very long waitlist". I got no information other than that. Still waiting to hear back from Northwestern as well.

I don't think there's a way to email them about it without sounding annonying at this point in time. It's likely better to ask in around March. If you do want to ask early, I would suggest acknowledging and respecting that the committee is still busy with applications.


Edit: I have received my funding letter from Wisconsin at this time. It is a $21k TAship.

Just be careful doing this. I emailed Oregon State and the grad chair seemed annoyed. However, I apologized and he said he understood and it's no problem. But I have also emailed a couple other schools and they were really nice about it. So it's a hit or miss.

Anyway, it may be best to be patient. Or at least wait until the end of February.
