Given the current covid scenario, what do you guys think is going to happen now?

IMO it's better than the usual bullshit they write in their rejection letters. Every year was the hardest year ever to make decisions because they had the biggest pool ever and the most amazing students ever, or somesuch. Matter of fact is they chose someone over you and you have no way of knowing how close you were (unless you got waitlisted). Their last line "wish you the best in your future endeavors" sounds more like "alright fuck off now". Can't blame them when they only care about ~ 20 people out of a pool of 500 applicants.
Finally, someone has spoken up about the fact that requiring a long and superkind rejection emails is nothing but pleading for a hypocrisy. I'm tottaly signing up under the quoted post above.

While tempting, I would highly suggest that everyone avoid any speculation on this matter.

At this time I think it is clear that there will be no change to the April 15th deadline.

As for the end of Summer and beginning of the semesters: It is still far to early to understand what our situation will be at that point, and we do not have the tools to accurately predict it. So I would suggest focusing on your current studies, hobbies, and maybe read an extra textbook, and we can reassess once we know more.

I won’t speculate on the actual state of things in a few months, but the DGS’s I’ve spoken to directly about this had the following responses (paraphrased).

Notre Dame: No one knows what will happen, but we expect to have somewhat unusual situations to account for. For example, one of our admits was a little stuck with housing for summer, since he will not have the work opportunity he expected and also can’t go home, so we plan to start paying his stipend early.

UT Austin: No one knows what will happen, but we are committed to continuing the program as normal, even though we aren’t sure exactly what shape that will take.
(It seemed like he was referring to the possibility of, say, having remote classes at first.)

Granted, these are both schools with pretty large endowments. I have the feeling of wanting to get whatever specifics I can in writing.

To add, I asked Dr. Perutz as well, he specifically said that there is no confirmation of the April 15th date being moved, but he has heard talk of it possibly occurring. We will have to wait and see, I suppose.

If I recall correctly NYU sends mass waves of rejections, I saw a few on GradCafe. Does does mean if we haven't heard back there is still a chance?

Since some people have already gotten wait lists, I assume they're admitting people only for unfunded masters at this point.

Ah so essentially if you haven't heard back it's a rejection.

Waiting on Georgia Tech and Rice. GA Tech guy said we'd hear back by April 15th and wouldn't give any more info. Rice was similar.

Declined Notre Dame and UIC this weekend. Good luck, all.
Also, surprised by rejection from BU today. Not so suprised by rejection from Northwestern.

I was admitted to Texas A&M off of the waitlist this morning, so be on the lookout. The system is not updated, so it seems to be a one-by-one invite sort of deal.

Congrats, that's awesome!

It looks as though there has been another rejection for UofToronto, pure maths PhD. Does anyone know whether they are rolling out more decisions now?

Has anyone heard back from Michigan Ann Arbor for MS in Mathematics or is currently waiting for a decision?
