Congrats on your acceptance. Lehigh is definitely way up there for structural engineering, with top research facilities - were you at the open house? A couple of the professors I dream[ed] of working

Would you and other guys posting here, share their stats; it can make everyone a chance to assess their situation. Stats like: GPA, English test scores, research experience, papers, contacts with professors and how, and name of the universities applied.

Hey Guishediaz,

Well I applied for Spring to UIUC. GaTech, Virginia Tech and even Austin Texas, but had to defer because was granted with the Fulbright Scholarship. I haven't heard back from any univ rather than VT. I received the VT letter on December 27th, 2011 and I guess it was that fast because I was laready admitted for the previous term.

On the other hand, GaTech usually give sthe decision by the end of March and UIUC anytime since the very beginning of March and March 25th (*approx.).

Good luck Man!

So are you heading to Virginia Tech? As you are awarded with a Fullbright Scholarship....You will not probably need any departmental funding like TA/RA/Fellowship...right? So which professor are you going to work with?

I have no info about universities I applied except UW Madison

The CEE recommend me to graduate school. Still, they told that fund will be notified later.

"The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) is pleased to inform you that we have recommended to the Graduate School that you be admitted to the CEE graduate program for Fall 2012. You will be notified separately if you have been selected to receive any type of financial support."

I get a fellowship of VEF (in Vietnam) which supports me 54,000 and the university must support the supplemental financial aid.

What do u think about my situation?

I am not supposed to need any of them. However, they would be more than welcomed. I am interested in working on Earthquake Engineering with Dr. Eatherthon or Dr. Charney if I finally decide to enroll VT.

That's great. I got a strong response from Dr. Eatherton. That is the reason I applied to VTech. I talked to him couple of days back. He said admission is not going to be a concern for me and he is supporting my application for funding consideration. So if you and me both head to VTech, we might end up working in the same group.

That's great! I met with him last October and he told me he is very interested in my profile. So, hopefully we both end up working together!

I have seen someone posted about acceptances from UIUC and VTech Civil Engineering Department. I am not sure whether they are structures or not. But have anyone of you heard back from any of these two schools?
