Anyone know the deal with Duke?  I figured I'd hear back earlier since their deadline was the earliest (December 8th), but still haven't heard a peep and the results page seems to be lacking from them so I must not be alone.

No clue what's going on with Duke. I still haven't heard anything and I applied in early November.

Emailed Duke this morning to ask for a timeframe of when the application decision would be made.  For all of you still waiting this is the response I received.

 

"Duke Chemistry is still in the process of reviewing applications and I'm
unable, at this time, to let you know when all decisions will go out,
except to say the end of February is the best estimate I can provide."

So who all will be at Colorado State in a week?!  Getting pumped!!

I applied there back in December and have yet to hear back from them =(

Did they send an acceptance e-mail or did the pre-application update the status?

My acceptance letter from CSU came as an email on Jan 25, and a hard copy in the mail about a week later.

Still no word from UNC :( I know they sent out a few rejections on Friday, do you think it's possible I still have a shot/was waitlisted?

 

I am getting nervous since I need a bit of notice in advance to take off of work, and I also don't want to schedule any visits during their visiting weekends, in case I am lucky enough to get an acceptance. I emailed the department of chemistry last week (2/10) to inquire about the status of my app but got no response. Do you think I should email someone else? Like a POI? Or should I just calm down and continue waiting? (Ha! Calm down..sure :blink:)

Ok cool, did you complete their pre-app early December?

Pre-app? I completed one application in early Jan and got my acceptance late Jan if I recall correctly...

 

For those who are going this weekend... who intends to socialize instead of going back to the hotels to study at night? Hopefully I can lure some grads out to grab some drinks and really talk about the labs they work in

Does anyone know about Vanderbilt? I saw the stream of rejections, but I still haven't heard anything. Even if I'm accepted, I'm sure it would make a difference at this point since my visitation schedule is already full. I just want to know their decision since I put a lot of work into my applications. I think most of us already have a good idea of which school we are going to attend, but I hate having outstanding applications at this point. Does anyone else feel this way??

For what it's worth I applied mid-november and I heard back right before Christmas, so they should have a pretty quick turn around for acceptances. It seems there is a second visiting weekend in March so if someone hasn't heard back yet they might hear back in the second round.

 

I don't imagine you'll have too much trouble getting people to join you with that.

I'm down for visiting that Belgian brewery they talked about in the brochure after hours.

So guys, do you have any info what are the average sizes of the new graduate classes in chemistry? How many people do they take at each program? What is the difference between large and small program?

Alright - the rejection from MIT came in yesterday. I've got all my answers! Busy visitation schedule ahead (followed by the ACS conference in NOLA), and then a tough decision. I found the rejection e-mails from both UC Berkeley and MIT to be exceptionally mechanical and not at all personalized. Did anybody else have this experience?

How did you find out about your rejection to MIT?  I still have heard nothing from them and have no idea what this means.

They sent an email: "MIT Chemistry Application Decision"

This thread seems rather quiet this weekend, with everyone at their visiting weekends, wish everyone luck, this weekend and upcoming weekends. I'm jealous!!

My visit this weekend was fantastic, despite the snow storm that rolled through as everyone had to leave. It looks like this is the official visiting/deciding season now for most people so good luck to everyone in making the right choice so that we can all be happy and satisfied with where we go!

Anyone else still waiting for Wake Forest? It is the last one I am waiting for, I got shot down by my #1 and unfortunately did not apply to many backups so I am really stuck until I know my options.
