Some people got interviews from UMich!

I noticed that on the survey page also. They are all International, which makes sense because the deadline was Dec 1st.

We should hear back from a couple schools this week..I have one unofficial acceptance so far from a school I submitted this week.

Also, I decided to not apply to University of Pittsburg, University of Maryland College Park, or UT San Antonio for various reasons.

So, my final school list is: UCLA, UC Irvine, Northwestern, Scripps, UW Madison, UPenn, UNC Chapel Hill, Purdue, Boston University, U Michigan Ann Arbor, UIUC, Yale, Princeton, Stanford

Sending good vibes to you all!

Many of Korean applicants to U Mich Chemistry got offers interviews. And it seems like school wants to check the english fluency of them.

In Applweb, Northwestern University haven't checked my GRE subject score as official, even though GRE general score was verified as official!

Anyone is in the same situation??

I emailed them the same thing and they replied they had received all my official scores. I guess they just did not update it but you can email them to make sure.

Does Umich Chemistry usually interview people before giving out offers?

My Northwestern Application is "Complete."

However, my Stanford application is "Incomplete." From previous years, I believe that this is just a computer error. They are pretty good with notifying applicants whose files are incomplete.

Anyone else applying to University of Chicago?

Yes, I got the same thing. Based on previous years, most people found out through the website, so I think we're good!
