I emailed Utah. Got the following response:

Thanks for your inquiry. I'm a faculty member at the University of Utah, and indeed I can confirm that your application is still under review. We hope to have a decision for you soon.

Sincerely,

Good luck to us all.

I just withdrew from the waitlist today, and a friend of mine will be withdrawing sometime as well - best of luck.

Yeah, myself and a friend at the same school were admitted. Both of us will likely deny the offer though.

I applied to 12(!) schools and have only heard back from one of them (rejection from TTU).

I got accepted to the University of Birmingham (UK), which is currently my top choice, but I have not yet secured funding. The professors with whom I spoke told me that the decision for a scholarship would be made in "April/May." From what they described, there is a committee meeting in which all of the advisors basically argue over which students should get what funding. I've been accepted into a few American schools, but they all have the April 15th deadline. Assuming I don't get a more appealing offer, would it be more appropriate to ask Birmingham to make a decision about the scholarship sooner or to ask my first choice American school to give me more time?

Maybe you can first email your US programs to see if they are willing to give you an extension? I mean it’s not like if you ask then they will rescind your offer...

Is there anyone who still hasn't heard from Brown Applied Math program? They have sent out a round of acceptances and a round of rejections according to Gradcafe.

I just got an oddly kind email from Berkeley saying that I was wait listed. They said they'll let me know near the end of March once the first rounders respond. What do you think are my chances of getting accepted are? Does anyone have any idea of how long the wait list is...? I've never been so excited to be wait listed.

Did you ask them about your status? If not, then it's safe to assume everyone who hasn't heard back is just waiting for the rejection letter, me included :oops:

I just replied back to Berkeley's email saying that I was still very much interested in them, and he responded "Thanks for the quick reply". In the initial email he states that he was impressed by my achievements and potential and would offer me an acceptance if there is space after the first rounders respond. Probably a generic wait list email that gets sent to everyone on the list.

Yeah I got the same email. I'm also curious what the chances of getting admitted off of the wait-list is... (according to the email, only one round of offers have gone out so far)

It seems like I have been waitlisted by everywhere I applied. Does anyone have any idea on how likely it is for one to get admitted off the waitlist? I am international, and I really don't want to take a gap year.

I feel just like you now. You can search last years' application threads and see that some people were recieving admissions after being waitlisted. I guess we gotta just wait now.

Sorry for misunderstanding the message. I didn’t mean that. Actually I am also worried since I don’t have any offer yet. Good luck for your applications.

Should we contact the dept and ask about status? We haven't gotten rejections so that's still a good sign

I am an international applicant so I am not sure whether to do that. I heard that emailing to the committee before a decision made would, statistically speaking, receive a passive reply rather than a positive one if you don’t. So I had no courage to border them. :(
Should we email them? I really want to know my status. Extremely nervous.

Same feeling at this moment. I am really eager to ask them now but may decide to wait it until Mar if still no news.

I have a question about Chicago in general. How much money do you think is enough for comfortably living there? Lets say I pay $1000 for rent, heat and water included. I am not a party person so I won't be going out much and I want the best (but still affordable) internet that I can get.

Oh and what about the esports scene? I am a big fan of DOTA2 esports but I haven't seen a big lan happening in Chicago or the area. And I would looove to go to stuff like that.

And Happy Chinese New Year to everyone that celebrates it! ^_^

Someone posted on this thread earlier that they are making most of their offers in March. Apparently they sent a bunch of emails to people saying they were near the top of a ranked list and asking them to say whether they were still interested ASAP. Dunno if they've made any official acceptances

Congrats! I imagine it's a huge relief. I was sweating buckets until I got my first acceptance too.

Good luck to everyone else still waiting. There are many programs that start at the end of February so don't give up hope just yet.
