Anyone like me still receive nothing from the schools? I even have not received anything from my own school. Do I need to contact the admissions? I have heard that someone is responsible for sending offers to international students in my school, but I don’t know him. Is it good to bother him?
Same. Everyone tells me they are reviewing applications. ☹️
Good news for me, I just received an offer from the applied math department in my school, though it was the safest place and I want to study pure math (geometry related). Good luck for you.

Congrats. One school (with funding) is all that's required to get rid of the unease in our minds.

Has anyone seen any rejection or got rejected from either of these: UCLA, UCSD, UPenn, Maryland, & Notre Dame for Pure Maths? These are the only schools left on my list. Although an offer is unlikely, rejection might help me sleep :)
UCLA pure math admitted me recently, so there is still hope!

Today is a busy day LOL.

Just got an email from Minnesota asking for an interview. I was under the impression that the PhD admission process rarely involves interviews, guess I was wrong.
Congratulations to you. Please decline the offers you don’t want on time. So nervous about my own applications.
Oh. Thanks I guess. Assuming I do get in.

Currently acceptance/rejection ratio is 0/too many.

I received a call from Ann Arbor today, and Google says the phone number belongs to UMichigan. So I called them back and asked about the status, and was told that they wanted to schedule a 15-30 minute interview over Skype.

After we decided on the date and time, I was asked if I am interested to enroll in their Master's program.

So what should I be expecting from the interview, and is it a bad sign that they're gauging my interest of getting a Masters instead of a Ph.D?
I didn’t apply to any masters programs or even check any boxes on PhD apps saying I’d consider a masters if rejected, but I’d do one at Michigan in a heartbeat if it was funded. Let us know what happens!

I’d also be interested to hear about the Minnesota interview/if they ask you about a masters as well.

It's probably still to earlier to consider ... an interview doesn't mean an acceptance right? :(

I had two interviews for a PhD. The first "interview" was me interviewing the school. They did not ask me a single question other than if I wanted to do pure or applied math and made me ask them questions for over half an hour. It felt much more like a sales pitch and them gauging my interest. At the end of the interview, they told me to expect an offer, which I eventually did get. My other interview was much more formal. They asked me questions like what area of math am I most interested in and why, give a famous theorem I like, and explain my research in more depth. And half way through it became a sales pitch and them trying to gauge my interest in their offer and was told I would be given an offer. I don't think most schools will ask you technical questions about math since that sounds more like a oral exam rather than an interview.

I wonder if I should follow up with schools that had a January deadline on the current status of my application. It's only been 5-6 weeks since I submitted the application so it might be too early to follow up. But on the other hand, they've sent out some acceptances in the last 2 weeks. So that's just making me curious.

Has anyone tried emailing UCSB, Vanderbilt, UI Chicago, or Ohio State to ask for an update on the status? If so, what did response did you get?

Same here. I’m curious too and I’ve decided to politely send an email to staff remember that coordinates the graduate program/admissions process for some schools.

Ohio State hinted that they are going to make another round somewhere between now and the end of the month, then waitlist or rejection notices will be sent out.

Hopefully that is the case.

Since you've gotten into UCLA, your credentials is similar if not better than the couple other people that got into UCLA on the main thread. So, my miles may vary. :(

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think all STEM Ph.Ds are fully funded. At least, I have not heard of any institution that does not provide funding for its Ph.D students -- I've only heard of unfunded Master's programs.

Omg, I have applied to Stony Brook and there is so much stupid spam sent from Stony Brook emails. And I cannot unsubscribe because I am waiting for the decision from the school. Every single spam triggers me over and over again because I think that is a final decision. For example, I have just received

Another Columbia APAM decision on grad cafe, guess it means they sent another round of offers? Pretty much going to assume it's a rejection at this point.

The open house for APAM at Colubmia is at the end of March, so I think there is still some hope.

Another Columbia APAM decision on grad cafe, guess it means they sent another round of offers? Pretty much going to assume it's a rejection at this point.
The open house for APAM at Colubmia is at the end of March, so I think there is still some hope.
Do you know when that is exactly? I assume no offers will be made after then.

Have anyone gotten a decision from BU for pure math?

Still waiting but I applied for probability which overlaps the math and stars concentrations. They told mr they’ll review after Jan. 15, though.

Does anyone know if 2300 USD per month is enough for living expenses (food, accomodation, etc. ) In Illinois, Chicago?

Also are there are any other expenses ( such as healthcare) that I should consider?

To anyone who has not yet heard from Duke:

The DGS has informed me that we are waitlisted (yay!) but there is very very little chance of us getting in (boo..)

Looks like a lot of people are on the waitlist at Utah; I went ahead and declined my offer to free up a spot early. Good luck to all of you
I just got waitlisted from Utah. Thank you very much!!!
Is there an email saying you are on the waitlist? I got nothing from Utah.
Hope you got something now. I recieved a email from Utah saying they are highly impressed but this year they have fewer positions so they have to put me on waitlist. I'm not sure if it means I'm high on waitlist, but I hope so and am willing to wait.

I’m taking a break from this forum n gradcafe. Not having heard back from anywhere and seeing all these offers is stressing me out. Good luck everyone!
I'm in the same boat. We need a forum for people without admissions. At least another thread named "Fall 2020 SuperSweat Thread"
