  1. I had an interview on 11th Jan from Boston University (Theoretical Chem) by one of the committee member who I did not mention in my SOP. A week later, she notified me that I was recommended by the committee. I am yet to hear from the graduate school for the official acceptance.
  2. I sent an email to the graduate committee of UPenn, they replied that my application is still under review. Apparently, this is the standard reply you will get. Contacting POI might help in gauging your situation but I would wait till the end of this month before mailing the professor.
  3. I have heard from POI (Theoretical chem) at Brown that I was among the top applicants in their final list and will likely be admitted after graduate school approval.
  4. Has any international application heard from UPenn yet? I know that domestic applicants were invited to attend the open house. Has anyone received acceptance or rejection? The website says that the application reviews started on December 2nd, most of the programs with Dec 1 deadline have at least sent few acceptances.
  5. Thank you for sharing your story. It is very helpful. Congratulations on your admits and all the best for the pending results.
  6. Agree, says an international applicant with an average profile who applied to only five programs (3 of which are Ivy League schools) without taking the subject GRE. 😂
