  1. Echoing this. This community made the stress and anxiety tolerable. Best of luck to people applying next year!
  2. Claiming a rejection from Boston (finally!).
  3. Congrats! So happy for you! I know how tough it's been waiting all this time. Glad it all worked out. 😃
  4. I applied to UBC and haven't received an admission or a rejection. I emailed the program, and they told me that although it's not impossible they will send out more acceptances, it's very unlikely. Apparently they sent out most of their acceptances in one earlier wave. We must be on some type of unofficial wait list.

  6. Wait listed at Michigan, UBC, BU, and Boulder! I'm mainly curious about Michigan though... If I get in, I will enroll in a heartbeat. The wait is killing me. 😬
  7. If any of the theory admits to Michigan are planning on declining, please do so soon! On the waitlist. Michigan would be a dream. Love the program. And aside from that, my partner lives nearby. 😅
  8. The DGS isn't supposed to push applicants to make a decision before April 15th. That's the whole point of all these programs having a deadline of April 15th.
  9. I was able to log in to MyFile, but there is no update on my application status...
  10. Just declined UCSC. Hope someone will hear good news soon.
  11. Congrats! Are you a domestic Canadian applicant or international? I heard York is only accepting 1 international student.
  12. If you're talking about York-- I emailed them recently, and they told me they hope to get back to international applicants in the next few weeks.
  13. Just wanted to say I've enjoyed being on this forum. Thank you all for being so supportive! This place has been a haven amid all the stress and anxiety. I'm still waiting on a couple of programs I'm interested in (Michigan and UBC). I also have a UCI acceptance, so at this point I know I'll be going to one of these 3 schools. It might take a month to hear back from the waitlist though, so I'll be bowing out. Best of luck to everyone!
  14. Does anyone know how UBC compares with BU and UC Irvine? UBC is a top Canadian school but I'm not sure how it translates to a US context.
  15. What bites about being on waitlists is that you know that during a normal year, you might have been accepted. One POI even told me that in a personal email. 😪
  16. I'm waiting for Cornell too (theory). I don't think Cornell has an official waitlist, so I'm assuming I've either been rejected or placed on an unofficial waitlist.
  17. A program I'm waitlisted for has asked me about my other offers. Does it enhance your standing that you have offers already, or does it just make them less likely to admit you?
  18. Is it likely that Cornell has sent out all the acceptances?
  19. Another week ends! What are y'all planning on reading this weekend?
  20. Does anyone know what purpose is served by having an unofficial waitlist? I was trying to think from the perspective of an admissions committee. The only reason I could come up with is that they rarely draw on the waitlist and don't want to give people false hope.
