    Interviews/Acceptances/Rejections Fall 2019

    Has anyone been waitlisted at UCSD and been notified about it? I saw that a rejection went up on the boards today, but I haven't been notified of being rejected or waitlisted yet.

    I'm just guessing that Boston U. is out as an option for those of us who didn't get the group invite to that "admitted students" day. 😕

    Anyone waiting for USC's rejections - you might want to check your inboxes. I just got mine. 😕

    Word of the day: "Screed". Didn't come across that one on any GRE word list.

    Any UW-Milwaukee applicants in the house who might have an idea of when we'd be likely to hear back? 😕

    Yeah, waiting for Boston U and a few others I'm yet to hear from This really sucks.

    It's not just the cost of the TOEFL alone, but the cost of sending out additional score reports @ roughly about 20$ per report. They do let you send out four reports for free at the time when you're registering for the exam, but if you haven't specified them at that point, you'll have a lot more to pay later on. So if a school's asking for about 75$-125$ as application fees, you'd have to spend an additional 50$ (TOEFL+GRE score reports) to apply.

    Dropped a message to my POI at UCSD a few days back - and he hasn't responded to me yet. 😕 This comes in after having spent an hour with him on Skype a few months ago, where he offered to review my SOP As well. I'm hoping he replies soon - some clarity would be nice.

    Are you from India? I am - and in that +12.5 hour zone as well. Can totally relate to how many late night you must've had over the past 4-6 weeks.

    Thank you for articulating what many of us needed to hear, really.

    Likewise I was rejected by six places last year, and I'm four rejections in this year. Yet to hear from another six places, so I'm really hoping that something comes through!

    UCSB just sent me a rejection letter - so if you're waiting to hear from them, I'm guessing you will soon enough.

    I feel you bro I'm in the same boat as well.

    Personal Website?

    Where subdomains are concerned, I think an "about.me" page could certainly suffice if you want to keep it low key, and avoid making an investment.

    Just got my third rejection (Rutgers), waiting on two other possibly implied rejections (UCSB, USC), and that leaves me with five programs to hear from (Boston University, UCSD, RPI STS, UW-Milwaukee, and one European program). Sigh.
