Apparently the ACS submission deadline for the spring 2021 conference is tonight at midnight, which explains why chemistry seems very slow today.  Remember to take a breath and keep things in per

There's delays this year across every department and almost every college. I've only really heard from a third of my applications, my friend has heard from 1/8 (in math), and some other chem majors I

Anybody heard from UPENN for physical/theory yet?

Haven't heard back from any schools I applied too and they all sent out their first round of decisions based on the results page.... asked my magic eight ball this morning... it told me the outlook is bleak

I didn't apply for physical chem but actually reached out a few days ago. They said that they sent out the invites for the open house already but that a decision is still being made on my application. Not exactly sure what that means.

I applied to two schools for Fall 2021: the University of Kansas and UIUC. I applied to both for physical chemistry. I got accepted to KU but still waiting on UIUC... Does anyone know if they are still admitting applicants? Has anyone else been accepted/rejected yet?

I was accepted in physical chemistry to UIUC on Dec 21. I don't know if they're still admitting applicants, but the registration deadline for their visit weekends was Jan 22.

Yeah, I have this statement too on my application status website. It was added recently. Don't know what this means. Do you have any idea? Does everyone have this on their status website?

Did any International student hear back from URochester, Colorado state, UPittsburgh, Rice and Boston College?

I heard back from UR on Dec 9 but it might be because I went there for undergrad. I'm pretty sure that they are sending admissions/rejections on an ongoing basis. Good luck!

Does anyone else see something new on Applyweb portal for UMich? Something new popped up on mine to send in offical transcripts, but I have not been notified yet at all.

I saw this on mine. "certifile". It costs $50.00 and it is optional.  You do have to send in official transcripts, but I think they required official transcripts for the application well I know I sent them official transcripts when I applied because I have the receipt in my email through Parchment (the system Umass Amherst uses to send official transcripts).  I believe as long as you send official transcripts directly through your Bachelor's granting institution which most schools use either Parchment or National Student Clearinghouse, and it is very affordable, like $5-10 for a transcript vs. this "certifile" thing through apply web that wants $50.00.  I sent an email to the admissions dept (Kat.) and asked about it, if it was required to use "certifile" and she has not responded. On another note, I was contacted by a second professor from Michigan today (in addition to the professor who called me to notify me I was accepted), who told me he had nominated me for a Rackham Merit Fellowship, and that I received one, and he didn't mention anything about needing any transcripts or needing any additional information, and I feel like the deans of the graduate school wouldn't have awarded me this fellowship if they hadn't seen my official transcripts (which I again sent when I applied).  So in my opinion, I think it is apply web (which is a third party program) trying to get $50.00 from us, and I wouldn't do it unless someone from the department contacts you and tells you they need you to.  I will update you if I hear back from Kat or the admissions dept about it.

It came up on my applyweb too, but I have not yet received any admissions decision. TBH I think they did this for everyone's application :(

Yes I don't think it is the Michigan Chem department or grad school even doing it, I think it is the Apply Web Program that clearly has a deal with this "certifile" company, They might not even know it is on everyone's page, it seems like an error to me, especially if it is showing up for people that haven't even been accepted yet. I was very skeptical when I saw it because I knew I already sent them official transcripts and I finished undergrad in 2015, so my transcripts already show my degrees are conferred, which is why I emailed the admissions department, I am not paying $50.00 for anything until I get confirmation from someone in the department that it is required.
