Got an email from my POI at Georgetown indicating that they are interested in my research but cannot admit me at this moment. Placed on a 'very short waitlist'. No other info. Good luck to everyone else waiting!

Congrats to everyone who heard from Cornell! Really hope I can get some good news from there!

Has anyone gotten on NW's waitlist yet? i saw a weird post on the results page but I don't trust anything on there..

Nada. I even emailed the DGS, crickets. And to add, anyone got any acceptance or rejection since the few over the weekend?

I got a rejection this morning. Came at exactly 12pm EST, just like all of the previous times Northwestern notifications were sent out. Seems like their system sends out notifications every day at that time, based on what has been inputted into the system at that point. Feels to me like they are just coming on a rolling basis as data gets entered into the system, but it could be possible they are holding some back on an informal waitlist. If you look back at previous years, it does not look like Northwestern does an official waitlist.

Do you think its alphabetical order or application order?

My last name starts with a B so alphabetical is possible, but really who knows! I hope there are some people unofficially waitlisted out there - keeping my fingers crossed for you all still waiting!

Has anyone else gotten silence from NYU? Assuming a rejection at this point but have they sent all rejections out?

I know a few people who still haven't heard back (all for CP). One of them contacted them last week and they said that they still have a few decisions coming, so you never know! Good luck!

bit reassuring, thank you! hate that everything seems to come by sub-field because I know of friends hearing news but not me and vice versa...

What does personalized email mean?

It suggests that they are admitting students one by one, as opposed to a massive email dump. The hope is that personalized emails imply that not all acceptances happen at a single time, which implies that if you haven't heard anything yet you still might. Hope that helps.

Thanks! I just feel they may change the name at the beginning of the email, and then send all in the same period.

Oh wow, that gives me hope! ! I'm also CP and didn't get an interview request but thought I had good odds and a great fit. Was it a personalized email?

 

Oh wow. that's interesting. I had given up because I wasn't called for interview. Perhaps there is still hope
