Fake Admits and Rejections Posted on GC Today

Postby dasgut » Wed Feb 01, 2012 8:50 pm

Hey Y'alls,
Today the following were reported on GC:

1. A few admits to Wharton stats
2. A few rejections from Berkeley
3. An admit to Princeton "Applied Math & Stat"
4. An admit to Duke Decision Sciences

I've already reported those as spam. I know for a fact they're fake. My coworkers, who know I'm hooked to both gradcafe and my refresh button, posted those to mess with me. I'd hoped GC quickly removed them, but apparently they haven't. Sorry for the mess. I've already scolded them for messing w/ people as they were not aware of how many ppl check that site. I really hope nobody was too bothered, but I just wanted to make everyone aware.

I was just a wee bit suspicious considering that Princeton doesn't have an "Math & Applied Stat" program :P

Today's UT-Austin admit = another workplace fake.

Any truth to the Ann Arbor Stats PhD admits? Seems weird that they would hand them out 3 days after the application deadline?

No clue. My coworkers are only posting fakes for places I'm applying as well as the "School of Hard Knocks."

UT Austin ICES/CSEM post not fake, though.

Yeah, the fake is the one for Pure Mathematics with the comment "First admit!!!"
