  1. Going to do that after Spring Break! Thanks for the advice.
  2. That's true! Letting them know about my other offers might not help too much unless I say I would definitely accept your offer once you release it (something you say in a love letter when being waitlisted for college). Mostly I just wanna find out if I was silently rejected or I'm still on a waitlist. I've been making plans with respect to my offer, but nothing can be confirmed until I learn all the decisions.
  3. Should I email admission committee of the programs which haven’t got back to me to let them know about my fully funded offer with additional fellowship? I’d really like to move on with an offer to book airfare, sort out summer storage and fall housing, etc. Also, I know people who emailed a program to get their decisions and to find out official rejections wouldn’t be sent out until late April...
  4. Anyone emailed MIT, Berkeley, Cornell or Michigan and was informed a decision? Getting tired of waiting for rejections 🙂
  5. Hey it went okay, there were about 10 admitted students. But they didn’t really tell us how the admission process was like and I forgot to ask... Keep the hope up until it’s rejection!
  6. First rejection by Stanford geological sciences! See I was right about March is the rejection month at least for me I'm chill still but with 5 more programs to go, I just wanna know. Okay another rejection from Caltech geobiology an hour later! Things're really going the way I want them to🤣
  7. Anyone applied to caltech geobiology heard back even rejections?
  8. Hello! So does that mean people who werent invited for interviews were already rejected...I had informal interview with POI last year does that count😂
  9. @jimmay hi there! I'm a bit confused, so did @chasebf mean Stanford geological sciences by "deciding a while ago"? Cuz I haven't heard anything either nor anyone posted result. Also I noticed you've been accepted by Cornell, congratulations! I applied to EAS and I'm waiting to hear back. Would you mind sharing with me some details of their admission progress? Like visiting dates, how many rounds of acceptances... Thanks in advance!
  10. I forgot most of it but I dreamt of a rejection email from Caltech and the weird (and nice?) thing was they listed all my advantages and disadvantages for their grad study😅
  11. Hey I can totally relate! When I applied to undergrad I was rejected from my dream school while my two best friends were accepted and eventually went there (cuz they were also rejected by their dream schools). The worse thing was that we three always studied together between classes so I couldn’t help but hearing them discussing plans after accepting the offer. I knew they didn’t do this to hurt my feeling, but I started practicing piano during that time partly because I wanted to avoid their conversation 😂. Now three years have passed and I still hope I could get in there with them, but our f
  12. Still single on Valentine’s Day, so please gimme love in some other way...
  13. Hey Pangolin, thanks for the info! Just want to be clear, has the admission committee sent out official offers yet or they need to wait for PIs to confirm?
  14. Good to know, thanks for the info! Fingers crossed for us wrt UMich?
  15. Congrats!!! Are you invited to visit weekends? If so do you mind letting me know what dates?
  16. Sending y'all sunshine and power from today's 80-degree-Atlanta!
  17. 2 acceptances to their geobiology option appeared on GradCafe ages ago in January so I'm probably getting rejections tbh ? But geology folks you have my best wishes!
  18. Bad thing about starting a PhD when you're 20 yrs old is that you can't drink at graduation/welcome party ? (Started primary school 1 yr earlier and finishing undergrad in 3 yrs. Proud of myself but not a genius?)
  19. Thanks @magnetite!! I got the email to check status on Monday and was invited to visit Feb.28 - Mar.3 so I'd say there're definitely more acceptances to make before that. I don't know about initial acceptances tho, but I wish you best of luck!

  21. Hi @rocksandstuff! I applied to Caltech and Stanford geological as well and I’ve been waiting to hear back from both of them. Congrats on the unofficial offer from Stanford! Did your PI share with you any details of their application reviewing process? Just wondering if I should expect to hear anything from them soon
  22. This was two weeks ago. Order in which it happened: 1. I was having a bad headache the night before because I was afraid I wouldn't be accepted anywhere. 2. During my shower the next night, I talked to myself like "I can't lose XYZ program" and hoped that I could get an acceptance email as soon as I walked out of the bathroom. 3. I settled down in front of my laptop and was ready to do homework. The next second an email from POI from XYZ program titled "Congratulations" popped up. The acceptance into my current undergrad institution was way more dramatic tho so I'll post ab
  23. Taking 16 credit hrs, working ~15 hrs/week as lab TA, running a hiking club, and saving nights for Netflix/books. I've done similar thing before but this semester it just feels like my brain runs slower everyday. Get used to life and I'll be fine I hope
  24. ...you spent a week preparing for an informal interview and didn't have enough energy left for the "why school" question, turned out the POI cared because he's the departmental chair ?
