Do they only mention this if you're near the top or something?


For example, OSU sent out the complete waitlist (of course names replaced by some sort of codes) for each applicant on the list, and it contained the ranking for upper half of the waitlist and the list of lower half applicants without detailed ranking. On the other hand, Duke did not sent any information about the ranking. Maybe some of the schools which do not provide the rankings in initial notification will tell you about your ranking if you ask them.


For example a friend of mine was put on the Utah waitlist (no more info given) and he contacted them and they told him he we in the top of his area’s waitlist

Got waitlisted by Michigan State University and Indiana University-Bloomington. :oops:

If you got offers from any of these two and if you are not planning on going there, please kindly decline it. I really like these two schools and I really hope I could get into one of them. Thank you!

Good luck to everyone! :D

I reached out the them about a week ago. This was their response.

"We have not yet sent out all PhD admission decisions at this time, but we’re hoping to have the remaining final decisions sent out very soon. If you don’t hear from us by the end of this month, please feel free to get in touch again to confirm the status of your application."


Ah, I see. Thank you for the info.

For those on Duke's waitlist, I got an email response that it is not likely that any decision will be made before early April, and they are even not sure at this point about the possibility of any additional offers.

CU Boulder sent out first round decisions for both pure and applied. No financial offers yet for the applied side, but I'm pretty sure pure has gotten theirs. UC Davis likewise sent out acceptances for both a while ago.

To those who were accepted by UCSD (second round), did you get the official email from the Dean? I'm yet to receive it, all I have is the offer letter that was sent by Scott Rollans.

This is true for every school. If you're not going to attend a school, decline as soon as possible so schools can make more offers and we can all make our decisions. April 15 is fast approaching.

It varies a lot. If your research interests are specified, pick the school based on their strength in that area. If you're more undecided, probably a school with a larger department. If you also want to continue into academia afterwards, look at how each school places their graduates into postdocs. And location, money are also not horrible things to take into account if you care about them since it IS your career for six years. You decision is gonna depend on how much you care about each of these categories. Maybe make a spreadsheet?

I heard from a grad student at minnesota that normally they make 50 funded offers (get around 450 applicants), but this year the grad school only allowed them to make 30 offers (for phd). Their visit weekend is next weekend so they make more offers then?

Anybody on the waitlist for UT Austin? Or has been accepted to Austin but on a waitlist for a more preferred school? It doesn't seem like they have sent out any rejections yet.

Based on the following phenomenon, it might be best for people to share as much information as possible. Say I have an offer from school A and I'm on the waitlist for school B, with a preference for school B. There's another applicant with exactly the opposite situation. Then it would be better for everyone for the two to trade places?

Of course this is more complicated if schools have a strong preference order on the waitlists. Someone should work on this to find an optimal solution :D.

I’m on the Austin waitlist. Right now I’m deciding between Penn and Northwestern, and I’d also heavily consider Austin if accepted. Guess the waiting game continues...

Congrats on those two! It seems like Austin hasn't sent out any rejections yet, so it must be a long waitlist. I emailed the grad director who said there's a chance, but the chance seems to be slim. :( I have 1 offer that I'm lukewarm about, and I'm waiting for an (unlikely) international program.

I'm still waiting for UMN and UT Austin. I have an offer that I want to decline, but I want to always have two options... I will probably wait until I hear back from these two schools, which unfortunately might be all the way until the deadline.

Madison's visit day is tomorrow (March 26th) and Minnesota's visiting day is March 30th. They are unlikely to send out additional acceptances until after their visiting days.

I believe I saw someone on here claim that they were admitted to northeastern sometime in February. I also highly doubt they would wait till the very last day to give out all the admission, that’s just unbeneficial to everyone.

Thank you very much for the information! Actually UCR contacted me last week and due to the letter I believed that they had not made any offer before. (Also proved by a post in gradcafe) So I was guessing if NEU were in the same situation.

Someone else here claims they got into UCR on 3/1 or so. Just because they are still looking at applications doesn't mean they haven't given acceptances yet. It's the same thing with IU Bloomington. They emailed me saying they're still looking at applications though some people already claimed they got in.

I got an offer around mid-to-late February, with an acceptance deadline of March 15. Turned it down a few weeks ago, but I don't think they make a ton of offers so it's possible no one who uses gradcafe got an offer.

And to international students waiting to hear from UNC, I was told that they have selected a shortlist, but no offers have been made yet. They only plan to admit one international student.

My experience with Boulder (pure math):

3/17 - I e-mail CU-Boulder asking about status/letting them know I'm still interested
3/20 - I get a response saying they are just about to open the waitlist and I was high on it but no guarantees of an offer
3/21 - I get an offer

In my case I got this response when I emailed them back in mid-March.

I apologize for the delay in returning your email. We are currently in the process of making offers and unfortunately you application is on a waitlist. I assure you that you will be notified as soon as a decision is made and I thank you for your patience.

Btw, I contacted the Graduate Assistant for your reference
