Gatech MS-HCI Fall 2019


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I heard that GT sent out admissions on Feb.22 and Feb.26. Congradulations to those who have been admitted to this competitive program!!! 

I am wondering if the four tracks (IC/ID/PSY/LMC) send out admissions independently? 

If so, which track did you receive your admission from? 

Thanks & Congrats!!!

Hi! I got into the pscyh track 

Congrats!! I also applied to the psych track, guess that means an implied rejection now! 

Do you mind sharing a little bit of your background?

Don't loose hope yet! According to the results page, they keep sending out decisions till like mid-March. I too started accepting that not hearing any news means I've been rejected but you never know. It's not over until it's over.

Hi guys!

I applied to the Industrial Design Track. My application status still says ' Submitted', so I'm really worried. 

 

Mine says "To Dept For Review". Maybe you could send them an email (just in case)?

I messed up big time, i didn't realize that the web-hosting of my portfolio website got expired 2 weeks back and as a result my content was deleted. I updated it again few days back but i think it's too late, they have already reviewed my application now it seems. 

Just waiting for a reject :(

Don't lose heart yet! 

It's just a few days! Besides, portfolio may not be THAT important in reviewing an application: I know some people who got admitted to GT didn't submit portfolio, the committee looks at the whole package after all!:D

That would have been the case if i applied to IC or Psych track, but it was explicitly mentioned on their portal that for ID and LMC, portfolio plays a vital/decisive role 🙁

Why don't you try sending them a PDF version of your portfolio? They might consider. :)

I agree with @Lavs that you still get the chance to "argue" -- maybe send them an e-mail explaining your situation.

I already did, lets see what happens. Even if i don't make it, its fine. IUB was my top priority anyway (That's what I keep telling myself :P)
