2021 Chemistry PhD Admissions Results


Recommended Posts

For people who didn't get into MIT today, first Im sorry but also you all have wonderful offers and are going to do amazing things! Second, I am kind of wondering if I just missed mine based on some of your stats so I wanted to know if you saw a change to your application portal. Like i said, I feel as though I just missed the email because I was already rejected from Stanford and Princeton! Im organic for reference.

Okay, This is it. It's February. We're all going to be hearing back a lot in the next few weeks.  Don't give up. We're so close. I hope that you all receive good news!! Good luck everyo

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

I received an email from MIT. Maybe it’s good news if you didn’t receive an email!!

Hey everyone, has anyone heard from the University of Virginia, WashU, or Wayne State? and does anyone know when they start sending admissions? I am panicking 

I got an acceptance from UVA a couple weeks ago- but it seemed like an early offer. I wouldn’t panic yet. (I am in-state)

Has anyone heard from Duke or Dartmouth? Haven’t seen much activity surrounding either school.

I have been waiting for Duke also. Someone in this thread said a prof told them they aren’t releasing anything until feb so maybe we’ll hear soon

seems like today was MIT's slaughter day :(

has anyone heard from inorganic/materials track in UCB, UCI, UCSD, Northwestern and Washington yet?

from what i can gather UCI is a bit erratic with their offers and UCB has already sent out offers (and i can assume a likely rejection at this point) 

starting to think maybe i should work on applying for other things as a plan B now lol

I've heard MIT calls accepted students in the past and doesn't give acceptances out through email!  Best of luck to all those still waiting to hear back!

Has anyone in Inorganic heard back from Yale? (Other than those who heard in December)  I'm still waiting on Yale, Northwestern and UChicago...

I'm an international applicant in Inorganic, and I'm still waiting on Yale and UChicago. One of the UChicago's POI conducted an interview with me in December, but I haven't heard from them ever since.

Same. I genuinely don't understand. 1 solo pub, 1 first-author pub, and a couple of publications in preparation. Perhaps my GRE (331) or my TOEFL speaking section score was a bit low. I've explained it in my SOP, but maybe, I shouldn't have done it. Or maybe, it's something else entirely. I wish they at least told me the reasons for rejection...

Has anyone who applied to MIT for inorganic chemistry heard back yet? I haven't heard yet, but I can only assume their silence to be a denial. To all others waiting for other schools, best of luck!

I applied to chem bio but I wouldn't be so sure yet! Seems like they are really sporadically giving out both acceptances and rejections. Good luck!

anyone heard from scripps? 

I've been in the same boat, did the informal interview and haven't heard anything back since. I almost want to email and ask when we should expect anything by but I haven't been hopeful seeing others get the interview weekend invites already :(

Do you think there's a chance MIT is still gonna send pchem acceptances? I've seen a few so far, but the acceptances today after all the rejections yesterday are tripping me up on where they are with everything

I was accepted yesterday via zoom. Faculty told me that they are still in the process of admitting students. From what I've heard, this applies to all chemistry divisions (not to pchem exclusively). Admissions are kind of late this year, anyways. I know that this is not really helping with your nervousness and anxiety levels. Still, this hopefully gives you a broad understanding that things are not yet carved in stone. Stay positive and good luck to everyone who applied!

I emailed and was told they haven't gotten back to Sharron yet.
