Congrats! Where else were you accepted? I too applied to U Florida but haven't heard anything yet. Not sure if this is a good or bad sign. :?



Thank you and good luck to you. I've only heard back from two universities so far. I got accepted into Texas Tech also. I think they've only sent out 6 or 7 offers yet and hope you get admission there.

I emailed a professor at Minnesota. He said:

Yes, we have made an initial round of offers, and, unfortunately, you were not on that list (despite a good word from me). Your file is not rejected, so far as I know, but after this first round we will have to wait for some time (probably at least two months) before being able to make further offers.


If you have been offered a spot and don't wish to attend, please do decline it. This is my top choice!Thanks.

What for? The professor flat out said you have been rejected, so I don't think the "further offers" part pertains to you. Not to mention "at least two months" means past the April 15th deadline to respond to most programs ... make sure you don't miss out on a spot you actually got and want to attend.

This has been said before, but if you are not intending to accept an offer at Northwestern, please please decline it ASAP!

He said your file is NOT rejected. I have edited the post accordingly. You're right about the second thing. I have, however, asked him about when the second round of offers would go out. As per grad cafe, there has been a wait list in the past which is sometimes processed in early April. My other 2 offers are from middle tier schools. This is my top choice school, and I'm just hoping I can somehow get in. Hence, the post.

I just got rejected from Northwestern. Heads up for those who are still waiting. They might be sending offers and rejections today.

If you were accepted into Michigan and have better options, please turn it down as soon as you are able -- particularly if you applied with an intention of doing algebraic geometry. Thanks!

Were you waitlisted? I checked thegradcafe today and realized UMich was sending out rejections. However, I haven't heard anything from them and I was wondering if they inform about being waitlisted.

Not officially, but was told I will end up on the official waitlist (which should go out in the near future) after emailing with the grad director.

when I applied to Utah 2 years ago, they told me if I don't hear anything by the end of February then it's likely a rejection. @Junaid: Why are you interested in Utah ? You want to do analysis, right ?

I got an unofficial admission letter from Indiana Bloomington, and it seems that they will send offer soon (at least after Feb. 26th).

Got accepted by ASU but they didn't mention anything about funding. Should I wait and see if they offer me something later on their own or should I email them and ask them directly?

Ask, I remember that they have the habit of sending out admissions without funding.

I am an international, and I also have an unfunded offer. I was informed around Jan. 20 about it. I inquired about getting funded, and I was informed they may have additional TAships in the comings months and they'll inform me later around late March. Funding seems to be an issue at this school. I guess more so for internationals. There may be some funding regulations, as it is a public school.

Just got admitted to Vanderbilt at the interview :D 26K/year and it seems to be a good place to study von-neumann algebra.

One of the big factors for me is the quality of life and surrounding area. I’m not interested in academia so I can be a bit more free with choosing a less renown math program over something as lame as the city culture and weather :lol:

I was told specifically not to mention my desire to pursue industry jobs so I think it's pretty badass that you said you didn't want to go into academia.

Waiting to hear back from NU. Someone above said that they already sent out all admissions offers.

Just got the rejection from Madison...


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.


Should I assume that I’m on the waitlist of Cornell since there’re already plenty rejections out? Did they tell you that you’re on the waitlist? Not sure if I should email to ask about my status.

I'm in the same boat. Has anyone reached out to the grad chair? And/or has anyone been officially waitlisted?

Hi, I notice you've already received the offer from Boston College, congrats! It seems I should inquire them about my status at this point...could you tell me please who sent you the offer?

In case anyone applied to Waterloo, I got the following response:

Thank you for your interest in our Graduate Program. Currently our Admissions committee has reviewed your application and has put your application on Hold. I am sorry that I cannot confirm a final decision from them at this time. Hopefully we will have an answer for you within the next few weeks.


Sucks to be neither explicitly rejected or accepted in the first from my top choice schools. Didn't have a stellar profile by any means, though.
