Chuck Posted January 26, 2012 Share Posted January 26, 2012 Anyone else starting to get excited/nervous/antsy about UW Madison? Looks like their major wave of acceptances went out Jan 31/Feb 1 last year. This date is equivalent to the last Friday/Saturday in January, so depending on how the committee timeline shapes up, it's possible that we could be hearing tomorrow. Yikes. I don't think I'm ready! I haven't heard from any schools yet, and UW is definitely one of my top choices. My POI at Wisconsin told me that last year, in addition to receiving a record number of applicants, they majorly ramped up their selectivity. I think they accepted on the order of 6% from a pool of ~350. The upside of this (if you are lucky enough to be accepted) is that they started guaranteeing 5 years of funding to all students starting with the 2011 entering class. Wisconsin was already a fabulous program, and I would be honored to be admitted. However (also as my subfield is extremely small) I know that the chances are not amazing. Sigh. Trying not to worry to much about tomorrow. Any other Wisconsin hopefuls? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
