Still waiting!! I wish they just told us when they're planning to get back...

Same here still waiting on MIT for Chem Bio, really getting impatient.  Also waiting on Cornell (Ithaca) for Chemistry and Chemical Biology.  Anyone else still waiting on Cornell?

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

No one knows what's really going on with them at this point. I tried reaching out last week and they said "most applicants will hear by Feb 15"... And yet, we didn't lol

I emailed the grad admissions people this morning and they said decisions are being made on an ongoing basis and we'll be notified by late February. I guess decisions have been delayed because of rona?

Ngl, I'm expecting a rejection but I'd like to know sooner rather than later. Applying for inorganic materials.

Good luck to everyone with the schools they have been admitted into! You guys are going to do amazing things :)

I hope they don't wait until the end of Feb, I might email tomorrow and see if I get the same response. I will let you guys know if I do! Agreed on knowing sooner than later, the suspense is tough 😛

I called the graduate admissions office of UIUC chemistry, and was told more or less to be patient. The number of applications this year for the chemistry PhD program is upwards of 500, so they're taking a lot of time to go through them all. It's not really much tangible help lol but I hope this can allay some worries.

I emailed the admissions office too and got the same response. I am dying to find out so we'll see. At least there is still hope I suppose...

Hi all, I'm probably not the only person in this boat so I wanted to share this to hopefully put some minds to ease.

I was asked to leave with a masters degree in my last PhD program in chemistry (against my PI's wishes, no less). Applying this current cycle I was of course worried that no other department would want to take me knowing this. But I just want to make it known that I got an accepted to another chemistry PhD program today. If you haven't heard back from your schools yet, I'm sorry and just want to acknowledge that I know how horrible that feels. However, I hope it gives you hope to know that there are opportunities out there!

Same situation but not that lucky...

Leave PhD program in 2019 with a master's degree and no publication, organic division, international applicant in the US

Rejection from Emory (1/7), Penn State (1/23) and Mich (2/3). No interviews, no offers for now.

Still waiting for UCSD, Ohio State, etc.

Ohio State's visiting weekend seems to be last weekend according to one of PIs' twitter

Good luck to you guys all

Has anyone heard anything about Dartmouth? I've heard from a biochem PhD there that that  department was doing their visit weekend last weekend. But I haven't seen anything about the chem department. Anyone know anything at all?

I applied for chembio and haven’t heard anything either. Department seems fairly unresponsive.
