Planning Admissions 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi all, following last years thread about admissions for MCP and MURP I thought I'd start a 2019 thread for folks to share their anxieties and celebrations.

Personally, I was hoping to hear back from programs by this week.

Best of luck!

I applied to a couple of programs in the states and several abroad. Just got my first admit (first decision as well) from UT Austin. Hope they keep rolling in!

I applied to the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, and Queen's University in Canada! All are under review still - hopefully I hear something back soon!

I'm losing my mind waiting here as well. I applied to 10 programs. Overkill, I know, but I feel like I settled undergrad and didn't want to make the same mistake.

I haven't recieved any decisions yet, though 2 of the schools have started to release them (UPenn and Berkeley). Not looking too good for me so far.

Any insight about CU Denver extending their deadline to February 1st?

Looks like in past years, decisions were sent out around 2/23. I'm hoping they don't get pushed back because of that.

Ah good luck to everyone! I got into Berkeley last week and am now waiting on MIT and Harvard. 

Based on last year's forums MIT( along with lots of other programs) should come out first week in March.

Hmm, my status for Queen's still says "Application Submitted", yet I got an email on February 15th indicating my application is under review. Did you get a similar email?

Thanks! No i haven't received any email about my application being under-review.

The order is arranged according to the deadline of application. Calgary has an early deadline on Jan 15 and Queens has the deadline on March 1.

The rest are between Jan 31 and Feb 1.

Hi everyone!

I only applied to 2, McGill and Dalhousie. Considered Ryerson but I didn't want to go through their cover letter process after spending so much time on Dal and McGill. Both of my applications are Under Review still.

Good luck to all!

Congrats on your first two acceptances! I haven't heard anything yet and the schools I'm waiting for are "behind schedule" compared to years' past, which is leaving me on edge. :(

I just registered here to post in this thread!

 

I applied to UBC and UofT and have yet to hear back from either. I kind of wish I applied to one or two other schools. My U of T application says "under review", but I'm assuming everyone's does.

Fingers crossed for you!  I am (im)patiently waiting on a response form Berkeley still. Feel like it's looking bleak.

Thank you for your kind words. Just an update. As of March 1, I have been accepted to Cornell, NYU, Michigan, UNC, Penn, and Virginia. I was rejected from Harvard. I still wait decisions from Columbia, MIT, and Berkeley.

I have seen that a lot of people recieved their Berkeley decisions up to a month ago, so I too am thinking that it's going to be a rejection. Don't give up hope!!

Hello! I applied to 7 programs (for future lurkers, 7 programs is A LOT -- try to whittle down the list a bit):

- MIT: Accepted -- waiting on mail for financial info (was called on Thursday of last week.. been 3 business days so far and nothing in my mailbox)

- UNC: Accepted - no funding

- UCLA: Under Review/Awaiting response

- Harvard: Rejected

- Georgia Tech: Accepted - awaiting financial information

- USC(Southern California): Accepted: Dean's Merit Full Tuition Scholarship

- Cornell: Accepted: TAship and 1/3rd tuition merit scholarship

 

With a full ride to USC, I don't know how much money I'd be willing to pay for anywhere else. Anyone know anything about the USC program in relation to the rest I listed above? 

I'm eagerly awaiting the MIT letter that has potential financial award information. Please, Mr. Postman...
