Fall 2018 Cycle

Recommended Posts

I'm so frustrated right now, have a school that says I didn't send my GRE scores (I did) and didn't chose the fee waiver (I did) showed screenshots and can't talk to anyone at the school because I just get hung up on. Honestly thinking the school isn't even worth my time now :(

Which one is it?

I'm pretty bummed that I haven't even heard a hoot from Princeton or Yale (or any other school other than UMN). :( Feels like all the hard work I did over the years seems unappreciated.

I don’t think their decisions have come out yet for inorganic so I wouldn’t think too much into it

Yeah, I'm really sad about Princeton - pretty sure at this point, they will send out all rejections. Oh well.

I'm not going to name it now since, after 5 days, I finally got in touch with someone to get the problem resolved but I missed the priority deadline even though they admit it was their fault :(

Is anyone else applying to NYU for materials/nano? I'd really like to go there but haven't heard anything from them yet...

Hi all, joining the conversation late but I've been following this thread. Congrats to everyone on the acceptances! Has anyone heard back from Caltech, Yale, or Princeton for inorganic? I haven't heard back from Berkeley yet either but that might be a lost cause since quite a few acceptances have gone out...

I’ve heard or 1 person hearing from Princeton and I think Caltech (not on this site obviously) but I think those were every early notifications because he’s a star applicant... I’d say waiting it out is still fine! A lot of the Ivies/Competitive programs tend to wait until later in January to release their decisions

Has anyone not heard back from MIT yet? I saw that people have already received both acceptance and rejections. Is MIT still reviewing candidates?

MIT pretty much always interviews, and I'm pretty sure those invitations have mostly been sent out already. If you've been interviewed then there's still hope, some divisions accept students a little later than others!... If not, I'm not sure I'd count on an acceptance :( BUT it's still possible

I’m curious about this as well. I haven’t heard anything from them yet so I’m hoping they’re still working through applications.

There were a bunch from Princeton on the  page but I think something has changed this year...they usually send out rejections immediately after they send acceptances and there's generally very little waitlisted applicants. There's like, half a dozen waitlisted when there's like, normally none?

I heard from a friend that Yale and Harvard are typically the last to release inorganic decisions

Do you know when Caltech usually releases decisions for inorganic? It seems like they're fairly late based on results from previous years and it's usually phone calls.

Does anyone have an offer from Caltech/Harvard for Organic Chemistry or know anymore information about the progress of their Organic Chemistry admissions?

According to the Results page (if you search "Harvard Chemistry"), the acceptances for Harvard went out like January 25/26 so I'm assuming it'll be similar this year. As for Caltech I'm not sure.
