Congrats to those who are offered admission and planning to attend your their respective grad schools this fall!

I'm just curious if any of you still have got universities that haven't got back to you? U of Oklahoma and U of Western Ontario still haven't reply me; could it be due to their mismanagement that they forgot to reply? It's weird.

I still haven't heard anything from Louisiana State, Oklahoma State, or Texas A&M. Texas A&M did tell me a couple weeks ago they were still making offers and would do so up until May 31st. As for OU I received a rejection from them back in early March.
