    Last year Columbia released results on Thursday the 22nd.. I would not be surprised if we hear something tonight or tomorrow

    Really hoping Columbia releases decisions soon..

    If anyone else received their funding offer from UT-Austin today and wants to discuss, feel free to pm me

    The DGS for Ohio State said funding decisions would come out the third week of Feb, and Ohio State released admissions about the same time as UT. I’m thinking it’ll probably be a similar timeline, but who knows

    I’m an IR UNC admit, so at least some decisions outside of American have been released

    At this point I’m more eagerly anticipating funding information for the schools I’m accepted to than decisions from the 3 schools I have left. It’s tough to start deciding where you want to go when you don’t know how the funding is going to vary

    Same. I wouldn’t call it my dream school, but it was one I really thought was a good fit

    I have two acceptances at top-20s so far and did not take a single math course in undergrad. Intro to stats from a cc in high school was it for me. A decent Quant GRE can definitely mitigate things if you have little formal training, and I think in that case the SoP and writing sample are very important.

    Best GRE Prep Service?

    I started the application process with a diagnostic score of like 160V/149Q and ended with 168/160. I used Magoosh and a few practice books. I think Magoosh is like $130 for 6 months or something, and I would really look into that. I hadn’t done much math since high school so I needed something more than just practice problems, and the video lessons on Magoosh were super helpful for me (they also have hundreds of practice problems). This is a much cheaper option and worked well for me. Also, I just wanted to say that the process for applying to these programs is grueling and often idiosyncratic. I don’t think spending a ton of time reworking your SoP or writing sample now is necessary—just be proud of yourself for putting together a good application and give yourself a break. There’s plenty of time to prepare for next cycle.

    Disappointed UCSD didn’t notify this week. Really thought they would tbh

    Accepted at UT-Austin. IR subfield.

    The wait is starting to get me a bit.. I’m assuming Northwestern is a rejection at this point, but UCSD should hopefully be releasing decisions soon

    You’re all probably right. From what I just looked at Northwestern had 9 acceptances via gradcafe last year and only has 5 this year. Hopefully there are still a few more

    Maybe they’re doing it differently this year, who knows
