I got my first acceptance and it's to my top choice! I can't believe it, I didn't expect to get in, let alone this early. I'm scared to accept the offer in case I wake up....

Admitted to the University of South Carolina!!! I know it is not a top program but I was so worried I wouldn't get any acceptances at all I can't describe how happy I am

Yeah the profile pic works. Just got in Cornell!

I received an acceptance from brown last Friday. I'm a domestic student, if that helps. I also applied to Columbia but haven't heard anything

Very helpful, thank you!

My friend who has gotten into every single school including top ones like Caltech hasn't heard from Columbia yet. So maybe I don't have to give up hope yet!

Anything from Brown, Columbia, or NYU? Those are the last ones I still have some hope for...

Got in Masters in organic at NYU last week. But I think they did not review masters/PhD separately.

What makes you think they didn't review separately? I think they're pretty different programs so I feel like they would review separately.

The deadlines are the same. And based on what I have seen, they review in terms of specialization. So computational chem heard back first. Some other people applying for PhD in organic track also hear back around the same time as I did.

Did anyone hear from Scripps for organic?

My coworker received an invite for interview Friday but that was a special case. Based on the email she received it seems like they were done sending out invites. Could be wrong though

I emailed, they said they are still reviewing applications and the outcome of interview/rejected will be sent in the next few weeks.

Got my rejection from Columbia as well. At least this year they sent it in February, last year they did so in late March.

Edit for gg.rose: Judging from the tone of the email would you say that it's mostly rejections at this point? Last year they emailed me on the 21st of Feb, interviews are right around the corner too

So apparently my friend who works at Columbia right now the PI said that there were only like 2 spots for inorganic open this year, so they had to turn down a lot of people.
