Ohio sent out another wave of offers as per Gradcafe.
I wanna double check this with the grad coordinator. It looks fishy. Or possibly the offers were made on Tuesday and the posters didn't bother to use the proper dates

Apparently Princeton has started sending out results, as I saw several rejections on gradcafe. Anyone from here got any information from Princeton?

I was wondering about this - no one from my dept I know heard anything back from Princeton. Makes me to wonder if these are legit.

I'm pretty sure I saw @nicole3 posted something that says "your department is not good enough so no one can get in you [redacted] [redacted]" and then now it's gone.

Given how there're so many entries of acceptances and rejections today on gradcafe, it's safe to say most if not all entries today are fake and posted by a troll.

Honestly, what kind of person does this? Oh well, guess there will always be toxic people everywhere.

Same happened in my department. None of the people I know in person gets a result. But there's lots of posts on gradcafe. I feel like those (at least rejections) should not be troll. Maybe they sent out in batches or something.

It could be the same person posting numerous times. It almost seems like this person (or people) are trying to make our blood boil and trying to stir out anxiety and tension.

Now it sounds more sus to me. I've never thought about this possibility. It is almost insane. If this were the case, I will stop checking gradcafe or even this site. These people are going too far.

Same thing here. I agree that these posts are just trolls. Also, did anyone else got an acceptance on UCLA?

Did you get in? One of my friends has just emailed one prof in UCLA and he said the decisions will come out in next six weeks. But I guess he meant all decisions including rejections.

I just checked it's showing a random string of numbers. Omg is something about to happen or is this just a server bug?

Now I'm scared and excited at the same time :?

Same here. I think this year they are all sending out decision later than previous years probably because they need to go through this process online now. Many schools like UIC, UIUC has sent out decisions way earlier last year this time.

When I got in last year, I was emailed directly by the graduate chair. It took like a month for my portal to update to admitted status.

So bottom line, should we trust the Princeton results on gradcafe or nah? I’m nervous as heck about that. It’s a dream school for me! Also, apparently Harvard sent an acceptance (“unofficial e-mail”) according to gradcafe too.

- It seems like at least two people in the forum got accepted to UCLA yesterday. Not sure if they can provide more info about it.
- I *personally* believe that the Princeton entries on gradcafe were fake since no one in this forum, including people I know, received any email. Just guessing though. If that is the case, gradcafe has unfortunately become trash, and we should just stop using it.
- There is only one Harvard entry there, so it is hard to determine its reliability.

This is not 100% reliable, but a friend of mine who is a phd student at Princeton told me it's quite unlikely that they are legit, because official emails are only sent around late January.

At the risk of sounding whiny, I was really hoping to hear back from somewhere before the semester started. I really don't want to be stressed while also working on classes. Ah well, I guess it's a lesson in patience. Hang in there everyone!

I did not get the response from Princeton either. One of my friend in JHU did not get response from Princeton. He told me it is possible for Princeton to give out results two times, one in Jan 15th, the other in late January.

I find this very strange. If hearing back from somewhere would change your work ethic so much that you need to drop classes, there may be something deeper that you should get help for.

It could also go the other way. Like personally, there's a few schools where if I got accepted, I'd start working my ass off until August. Particularly for the ones where you can take quals immediately and not have to take classes. If I have to take classes anyways, no point in restudying old material, but if I can test out of a sequence, I'm definitely going to start reviewing my notes. It'd be nice to know early if I should start preparing.

I believe per grad cafe and the 2021 applicant page that UChicago started sending out first round offers earlier in the month, but that's certainly not all of them :)

Does anyone know the admission rate of UC Berkeley's Ph.D. in pure mathematics program? I have heard it accepts more graduate students than other universities. Is it right?

Do universities send offers to international students later than domestic ones? I suppose they have to evaluate international students' transcripts, to be able to compare their grades to US applicants, so it may take a longer time for international applicants to receive their offers. Am I right?

I believe per grad cafe and the 2021 applicant page that UChicago started sending out first round offers earlier in the month, but that's certainly not all of them :)
Thanks! :D :D

Every school is different but you can figure most are about the same as from past years MS and PHD offers in any major.

When I got in last year, I was emailed directly by the graduate chair. It took like a month for my portal to update to admitted status.

I think offers to international students are sent out before US applicants if anything since visa are needed.

I would advise taking any entries on gradcafe with grains of salts, it's been somewhat established that there are trolls posting on that site
