  1. https://ps.ucdavis.edu/graduate/job-placements That should be the information you’re looking for. I’d caution against relying too much on that article in your case, because UC-Davis has risen in the rankings a lot since the 90s I think (they’re like 17 now, right?). For what it’s worth, I definitely understand your concern. I think you really should consider where you’d like to see yourself end up. It’s an obnoxious system, but it does seem like in virtually all cases you won’t be able to get a TT job at an institution ranked higher than where you did your PhD. In some cases, people seem to move up later in their career, though.
  2. I’d like to be more optimistic, but I think this is correct. I’m assuming Columbia is a rejection for me
  3. I really thought we would have heard from Columbia by now
  4. Last year Columbia released results on Thursday the 22nd.. I would not be surprised if we hear something tonight or tomorrow
  5. Really hoping Columbia releases decisions soon..
  6. If anyone else received their funding offer from UT-Austin today and wants to discuss, feel free to pm me
  7. 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
  8. I’m an IR UNC admit, so at least some decisions outside of American have been released
  9. 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
  10. Same. I wouldn’t call it my dream school, but it was one I really thought was a good fit
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I was the email
  14. Disappointed UCSD didn’t notify this week. Really thought they would tbh
  15. Accepted at UT-Austin. IR subfield.
