Also, if anyone else applied to MIT's Business Analytics program -- have you received an interview invite? This was definitely a reach for me, so I'm not expecting an invite.

I think Harvard sent out unofficial acceptances via email. I would official expect rejections (myself included!) today or Monday.

Hi! I applied to Columbia, NYU, USC (CS - data science track), U of Washington, GA Tech, NCSU and U of Rochester

So far, I was accepted into Rochester and had an interview with NCSU (not with a professor in particular, just part of the admission process).

 

Very anxiously waiting for the rest 😟

The only program I applied to that I know has interviews is MIT Business Analytics. I don't think an interview is a part of Harvard's process. The unofficial (i.e., Department-level) acceptances for Harvard Data Science went out last week, though, so I'm assuming that I'm rejected since I did not receive such an email.

Hi friends! Posting on behalf of my fiancé (is that weird? 😂) who isn’t really big on posting in forums. He’s applied to the following schools for data science/analytics: 

University of Virginia

University of Chicago

Northwestern

Vanderbilt 

Columbia

I have been steadily refreshing this site for a month now anxiously awaiting any news. My fiancé, on the other hand, is as cool as a cucumber! 

Any word on decisions from these schools?

I also applied to Columbia and haven't heard anything. I think their decisions tend to come out later (e.g., late March - early April). Good luck to your fiancé!

Hello,

Congratulations for the acceptance to UoR.

May I ask if you are an international applicant or domestic? When did you apply for the Univ. of Rochester? I applied for the same and have not received any revert yet.

Thanks! I'm an international student from Argentina and applied on December 17th.

Hope you hear from them soon!!

The same question here. Does this program require an interview?
