Hi all,

I am new to this website, and must say the tracker/survey page is awesome!

I am curious though, if anyone hear is waiting on Virginia Tech for Computer Science (PhD). Searching the survey, it seems only a few people have posted. Should I write off VT, or is there still hope?

Thanks!

Hey, I think that if you're American / studying or working in America, you should write them off. They have an interview weekend they invite people to (they call it "Graduate Preview Weekend" but anyway) they call potential admits to. I went there and eventually didn't get funding. I actually think they already interviewed the international students too, and announced the official results some time last week, but I cannot be sure they sent out all of their admits.

Thanks for the reply, I have a admit with full funding to an equal school, but I prefer Blackburg over the other cities =p

It just seems I should have heard something from them. And scouring the net, I saw a few post indicating they sometimes leave students hanging till April. Oh well, guess I will hold off on accepting the other offer until April 14th =\

Hey, congrats on your admit, FunkMasterFlex! It's good that you don't have to wait on them/worry about not getting in! ;)

About the masters, I am not sure, this is the email I got from them (for PhD, but my guess is that it's the same program):

To access the online status service, go to: http://www.guest.banner.vt.edu, and enter your Guest ID, whichis your email address, and the password you created. Applicants who have not responded to priorchances to set up a Guest Account may request a new Guest Account invitation at http://www.inviteapp.banner.vt.eduwith your email address, date of birth, and Virginia Tech ID number.

But this was the email I got after my decision was posted online (I didn't actually check it, since I had previously refused their unfunded offer), so if you didn't get one then you probably don't have a decision yet...

Thanks for your information. I've checked the site above but nothing about status or decision there, just some status about application materials...

Anyway, maybe I should be patient blink.gif
