Is it really possible that Berkeley has yet to make any decisions yet?

Or have some people got in that are not reporting it?

Please help me

1. I applied to Ph.D. program at U of Michigan-Ann Arbor, UT-Austin and U of Wisconsin-Madison,

but I haven't heard back yet. Has anyone here applied to these universities?

2. I was admitted to UCSD and Purdue (in MSE Ph.D. program). Which one is better

regarding research activities and academic reputation?

No, I didn't. I was externally funded.

Austin's offers were sent awhile back.

Thank for your info.

I'm waiting on Berkeley, UPenn and Boston U too. It's too late to even hope, but I wish they would reply soon.

lkh5650, if you contact them, please let us also know what they say. UPenn replied to my mail 3 weeks ago saying they are finished with the first round and will follow up after those admits are confirmed. Berkeley did not reply to email since a week.
