Are MS Candidates notified later than PhD Candidates?


Recommended Posts

I have applied to 9 Masters Programs in Electrical Engineering, and thus far I have only heard from 2. Do any of you know whether the PhD spots are filled first and then the remaining spots go to MS candidates? Also, if we haven't been accepted or rejected yet, does that mean that we are considered 2nd tier candidates and still in contention? I would appreciate your insights. The wait is killing me!

Applied to:

MIT - rejected

Cal Tech - waiting

Georgia Tech - waiting

Stanford - waiting

Penn State - waiting

Washington - accepted

Florida - waiting

Texas - waiting

Michigan - waiting

I'm still waiting across the board for my M.S. apps. I know for a fact one of the schools I'm applying too definitely does Ph.D. applications first, because I was told as much in an email.

The only thing I'm worried about is that there won't be enough funding this year for M.S. students.
