Anyone hear anything yet? Should I be worried that it's significantly later than when I received my Mechanical Engineering decision?

I don't think so. Do you mind sharing you mech admission decision ? I had applied to MIT for PhD mech but yet hear from them. I think I should be more worried.

Nah I wouldn't worry yet. Trends from the last couple years show that people have gotten their decisions (both positive and negative) in the final week leading up to March 1.

I've also applied to this program. I'm on pins and needles waiting to hear back from them, although I feel like I have only a VERY outside chance of actually getting in. I do have some unique features on my resume that make me a good fit - but so does everyone else. ;)

Good luck to you - if you don't mind, please post here when you hear back and I'll return the favor!

I was expecting to hear from Aero/Astro on Monday judging from past years, but suprisingly no one has heard.

I was accepted to MIT MechE on Feb. 11 for the masters program. Feel free to message me if you have any questions about it.

Sigh, had some hopes and dreams on this program. Oh well... Emailed Beth Marois and it was the standard, You'll get your notification on or by March 1st. Unfortunately, I have no further info to share at this time...

Still waiting around...

I almost hate to point this out, but it appears that an admit was sent out today (check the Results DB). Historically it's taken a few days for all of the admits to filter through.

If one of you is the lucky recipient of said admit, don't be shy. :)

I just finished my undergrad, so I had no choice but to apply for Masters. MIT is like Stanford, you need to do a Masters first.

Sweet as congrats! Mind posting your stats? I hope they're way above mine so that I don't regret not applying there!! lol

That was me. I just got the email. I got accepted. Oh my god! I almost rear ended somebody while driving because my iPhone buzzed with a new email.

Good luck to you guys.

I still can't believe it.

Congratulations, man. Whether you accept or not, just getting admitted is a pretty big achievement.

I'd be interested in your research summary/GPA/GRE if you don't mind sharing.

(To everyone else: there was an additional PhD admit too. So the ball's a-rollin'!)

GPA : 3.89/4.00

GRE: 780 - Q, 590 - V, 4.5 - W

Research:

Lab Research: only my senior year

Other Student projects/contests: every year incl. freshman year.

I don't have great stats and I am still in disbelief that I got in, but I am not complaining. I guess my recs were good. Some of the people rejected in EE dept(assuming the user stats posted in the results DB are accurate) were just too good. I don't know what the EE department was looking for, so I had no hope for me. I mean, if someone with 2 publications and a patent would not get in, how did I have a chance? But I am just glad that everything worked out. It's times like these that I feel maybe there is someone looking out for me from above.

Also how does funding work there - do you have to get a fellowship or can you pretty easily land an RA when you get there? You pretty much can't do that at Stanford

I have no clue. The MIT website says there most students have funding from TAs/RAs/fellowships but they do not make the distinction between masters and Phd.

Oh well, looks like my MIT dreams are gone... Congrats to those who got in! You're awesome!

Let not your hearts be troubled! I just got an e-mail reply from their administrator saying that the admits are still rolling out. There is hope yet.

Will they all go out today? Any idea how many applied/are accepted?

No idea. But she said that they "still aim" to have all decisions e-mailed by or on March 1. To me that means that a) They've got a lot of applications and B) They definitely are still admitting people. So I guess all we can do is be patient, although this is absolutely tortuous.
