Congrats! I'm surprised not that many people apply to Caltech when compared to the number of people that apply to UChicago and other top 10 schools.

Congrats! I got in too. It is a small department though.

Any one heard news international applicants getting in UT Austin? There are couple of US students accepted on gradcafe. But I dont see any international students.

Is this with respect to UGA? I also was notified I was a finalist for a fellowship, even though I haven't been accepted, and I've noticed they already sent out some acceptances.


Are you a domestic applicant?. I'm an international student and Emailed to UGA grad administrator and I was told that some students will hear admission decisions this month and most will be made in March. I feel really nervous.

Wait listed by Rutgers. If anyone got accepted and not planning to go, please let them know asap, this would greatly help people like us.

How did you find out that you were wait listed by Rutgers? Has Rutgers sent out all of their decisions?

Has anyone applied to Cambridge's Part III/MASt program in Pure Math? Is your app's status still at "Under review by department?" Or has it changed?

I'm not sure if it's just me but, it seems that Berkeley accepts people that are rejected from most other top 10 schools. I believe someone this year was rejected from Brown but accepted to Berkeley.

No, I haven't heard back yet. I'm taking it as a good sign (not as good as being accepted obviously, but perhaps there's still a chance).

I'm under the impression Berkeley accepts more students than they intend to keep in their program and then weeds them out through competitive qualifying exams.

From what I've seen Berkeley and UCLA have much lower standards for domestic applicants, especially domestic females. I've seen a lot of people here get in over other people with (seemingly) better qualifications, but those other people just happen to not be from the US.

Unrelated note; it should be a necessary qualification to spell MIT's name correctly in order to get in MIT - so many people are typing it wrong over at gradcafe it's hurting my eyes.

According to one of their PhD students on /r/math, 80% of the students passed the preliminary exam on their first try.

This makes sense as quite a few people with under an 800 MGRE have been getting in.

I just turned down my offer to UC Santa Barbara. Haven't heard anything from Utah. Good luck!

I was informed otherwise by a professor who has spent a fair amount of time at Berkeley/collaborating with people there. Perhaps the situation has improved in recent years, but I actually decided against applying there based on what was told to me.

Berkeley admissions seems really different this year for some reason. They've only sent out a few offers.

A professor told me the same thing. He said they admit 150 students and completely expect half of them to fail miserably. This was definitely 30 years ago.

Indeed, I talked to some grad students there in 2016 and they said while this rumor may have been true back in the 1980/1990s, it is no longer true.
