  1. Rejection Thread

    Got a no from the Berkeley waitlist, so this process is over for me!
  2. Declining offers 2017

    I'll be declining UT Austin shortly.
  3. Declining offers 2017

    Just declined UNC Chapel Hill.
  4. Acceptance Thread

    Accepted off the waitlist at Rutgers!!!!
  5. Acceptance Thread

    Thank you! I am still waiting to see how the other waitlists turn out (though I certainly wish I could make a decision sooner...).
  6. Acceptance Thread

    Accepted off the UNC waitlist today.
  7. Waitlist Thread

    Hi there! I haven't been told about the visit days, but I too am puzzled by this. I'm planning to ask more about the waitlist and a possible visit soon, so I can let you guys know once I have a little more info. Do we know who was sending out the first round notifications? Maybe that affected when I was notified?
  8. Waitlist Thread

    Same; I had assumed rejection until now, so it was quite the surprise!
  9. Waitlist Thread

    Just got word today that I'm waitlisted at UNC!
  10. Meeting with professors during campus visit

    I've had two of my professors recommend that I ask questions as though I were an admitted student. Specifically, one of them mentioned that I should think about the things I'd want to know in order to choose between program X and my other options - especially if I got a last minute offer on April 15th. Given the unpredictability of waitlists this could very well happen, so it's good to be prepared for that in advance! (And, if you need to decline, it's a courtesy to others on the same list). I definitely feel this pressure too though.
  11. Feeling rusty in anticipation of visits

    @Coconuts&Chloroform I feel very much the same (and was also hesitant to take up offers to speak with professors one-on-one, knowing that I'm feeling rather rusty). But to echo others, it seems like the visits are really there to answer any questions you have and help you get a sense of whether the program is the best fit for you
  12. Rejection Thread

    Rejection from Michigan.
  13. Decision Thread

    Same! Just the opportunity to visit is totally thrilling, I am so excited!
  14. Decision Thread

    Hahaha, point taken. Given the unpredictability of it all though, I am quite alright with however things shake out (and would be thrilled if we ended up as interlocutors!). I'm just here to offer any helpful information I've dug up along the way!
  15. Decision Thread

    Yay! That sounds like excellent news then (re: interest fit). And yeah, it's tough to beat Rutgers' placement record! Are you planning to go out for the official visiting days?
