Do you know if those accepted were all emailed by their POI that interviewed them?

And was each person interviewed by their POI? I was, but that's all I know

I have no idea lol, I was rejected without an interview

My interview was so awkward that I cannot imagine being accepted, so consider me rejected, might as well. My POI specifically emphasized the parts of her research that did not match mine. I guess it's my mistake for writing about the parts of her research that I liked? Never mind that I had two other POI who my current works matches great with :')

Yeah never got an interview, but haven’t been rejected either. I assume the rejection is probably coming soon tho lol

If they are gonna reject some of us after interviews, what's taking them so long? My friends who got rejected without interviews are far better off right now and planning their visitation weekends at other unis while here I am refreshing my mail every 5 minutes like a maniac 😢

So I applied to 10 schools, three safeties and seven reaches. Accepted by the three safeties in December and rejected from another three this month. Should I just assume the rest are rejections?

The four I'm waiting to hear from are: Emory, Georgia Tech, University of Florida, and UIUC.

Accepted: UofSC, Clemson, UGA

Rejected: UChicago, Duke, Princeton

For those who got accepted from Princeton in Organic, did any of you put Robert Knowles or Paul Chirik as your POI? Just curious.

I put both down as I applied along the organometallic line.

Just wondering, did you receive the official admission letter from UCSD? They sent the nomination letter a while ago.

Also wondering if official admission letters have started coming out. Haven’t heard anything from UCSD and given nomination letters went out ages ago I’m expecting the worst
