So how many people are still waiting for Columbia? seems really early for rejections.. 

I also am still waiting for Columbia. Applied to be considered for their MA, though, so maybe that's why I haven't heard anything.

well if there are people who have also applied for the MA and who haven't here, then my MA theory is falsified. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Oh I got my official rejection from Columbia a few hours ago and it also says my application is now being considered for MA. 

I don't want another MA but see it as...err...free extra evaluation of my application material.... +_+

Well my overly optimistic heart will keep hope alive until I have a Columbia rejection in hand. ?

Claiming a Georgetown admission!

Hey 

Received an informal email informing me of my acceptance. No details on funding. Any idea how much they offer?

Received an invitation for UC Irvine's prospective graduate student visiting day. Still have not received an admission though.

Rejected from UMN but accepted to USC and invited to the POIR day in March! That first acceptance feels so good!

Congratulations!

Anyone else regularly checking one's acceptances? It somehow makes me extremely happy every time I see that all the effort actually paid off (and the offer is still there).

Sounds like Penn State is done, and I got nuthin'...so probably ought to cross them off the list.  Now I'm down to Indiana and TAMU, if I'm going to have any choices besides my UGA admission.  I think PSU was a long shot anyway given that I'm not planning on doing big data or really intense quant research.  I thought perhaps they were in need of some more grad students studying courts.  Oh well.

Indiana and TAMU are my best fits other than UGA, so here's hoping I at least have a decision to make...

Congratulations! They didn't sent me details on funding. I've read they usually give between 25K and 27K. But in the informal mail POI sent me, they mentioned they have recently reformed the PhD program and now there is more funding.

Thank you! They said they'll get back next week regarding that. Congratulations to you too. :)

Are you planning to visit?

I would like to. But I'm from Latin America. Are you?

Want to but I'm also an International applicant. Not sure how feasible it is then :)

Oh, I don't think I would, especially after receiving their funding offer. I noticed that someone had posted a Duke admit and people had been asking about them for the past two weeks. I also paid for these applications so I'm generally curious as to how they turned out.

EDIT: Also what @resDQ said. These are my future colleagues and I want them to like me.

Actually, there are a couple of current students at Duke who chose it over Princeton. It really depends on what your interests are, and money and location preferences can also play a role. Both schools are great and you can't go wrong with either one.

Oh, I know. Duke is a great school. The research fit for me, personally, is just not as good. But they put me on the wait list, so it doesn't really matter what I prefer lol.
