    Civil & Environmental Engineering - Fall 2018 Applicants

    I've been accepted to an MS at Wisconsin-Madison and a PhD at UCLA, both with a focus on water resources. No word on funding yet, but when I visited Wisconsin last week the professor said they would notify me about funding in a few weeks. My background is in Earth Sciences and I also applied to several grad programs in that field.
  2. Received rejection from U Washington Atmospheric Sci as well as post-interview acceptance to Stanford ESS this week. Also, informal rejection from Columbia EES/LDEO after reaching out to POI. He said he will not be taking new students this year because the department can only accept a limited total number of students each year and they decided to let younger faculty who are growing their labs have priority in recruiting students. I'm happy to have 5 programs to choose from!
  3. I got into Ohio State for the Geodetic Science program. The prospective student weekend for the School of Earth Sciences is next weekend March 2-4.
  4. I've now gotten either interviews or acceptances at 5 out of the 7 programs I applied to, and will be visiting some of them in the next few weeks. As to the other two - Washington Atmospheric Sciences and Columbia EES - I was getting impatient so I contacted the departments. Both of them said that while they have issued some acceptances already, they are not done making their admissions decisions.
  5. Hey alabama23, I don't know anything about waitlists but I do have a question for you. Do have any knowledge of when Columbia Earth and Environmental Sciences will start to release admissions decisions this year? From previous years on the results survey it has been throughout February, but I'm wondering if you have more specific info since you go there.
  6. In the past week I've been invited to interview at Stanford Earth System Science (interview on February 20) and Wisconsin-Madison Civil/Environmental Engineering (interview date TBD). Both invitations were by email from POIs whom I was already in contact with. I also was emailed by an Ohio State Earth Sciences/Geodetic Science professor that they were nominating me for a fellowship, but I haven't receive an actual admission notification from them.
  7. Just submitted my seventh and last application! It was to Columbia, which I added to my list late. Hopefully I'll start hearing back from programs in about a month! Good luck to everyone!
