  1. Do not put yourself down just yet, where else have you applied to? Have you heard back from any other institutes?
  2. That's too bad..... I was hoping they would give out more offers today and tomorrow.
  3. I don't think so, I think they give out most of the offers today, we still got a chance, just not high
  4. Nope, but my Imperial course-mate just got her offer which is really worrying hahahaha, I am expecting a rejection I guess.
  5. Chad Mirkin if possible, he is a legend, if not, I will go with Jiaxing Huang, but neither of them replied my emails
  6. Congratulations! Haha, thanks, hope I do not get only rejections. That would be really sad. I just got rejected from MIT chemistry.
  7. My friend got an offer last week from Chicago but it was for organic chemistry, not materials Science.
