No, but I feel like maybe it's too early? Seems like it was unofficial :)
Might not be actually. Last year all the offers went through by the end of January ( according to gradcafe) hence the cold sweat.
One more person has posted and I am also panicking here a little bit. If there are no further rounds of offers, then this might be the end of the lane with this university.
well at least its applied mathematics so I am hoping the pure maths folks still have a chance

So, we should expect decisions from Berkeley and MIT by 15th Feb, right? Any other places, particularly among (Stanford, UIUC, UCSD, UCSB, NYU, Purdue, Wisconsin), that should send offers by that time too?
NYU has been very quiet. I think they haven't even read the application, as I check the view of my video statement. They haven't watched it yet.

Just got rejected from Penn State. Best of luck to everyone who got in, and if you haven't heard anything yet it might be good I guess!

Last working day of January. There were plenty of offers on the 30th and 31st of Jan in previous cycles. Should we get our hopes high?

I feel like a lot of departments are taking longer with admissions/being slower at releasing acceptances due to the ~times~ that we are in. I wouldn’t have the highest hopes for tomorrow, but in this process we all have to stay optimistic.

And there’s no harm in having a self care day tomorrow regardless of what happens!

In a few application portal, it says submitted instead of under review ( UC Davis , Johns Hopkins app math , and CMU )
Does anyone have any idea regarding this?

Does Maryland still send out the 3 additional questions to answer after submitting the application? The last mention I see of it in this forum is in 2015. Have they stopped sending it out since?
Thanks!

I applied last year and got no such questions, nor did my friends.

I saw that UW and Northwestern has released Applied Math results (GradCafe). I wonder if we can expect pure math results soon? Probably today?

For anyone applying to UT Austin - I noticed that my application portal status changed to "Your file has been forwarded to the Graduate Committee for review." from simply just saying "Your file for admission is in review".

Does anyone know anything about this?

Yes I submitted my application in late November and it took them two weeks to change my status to "Your file has been forwarded to the Graduate Committee for review." I guess that just means the grad school has received all the materials and handed the application to the department.

real sorry for spamming but those of you who have applied to either of these schools.Can you kindly check and let me know what it says on the portal !
If its an actual issue then I might have to mail the grad office. Thanks

I applied to CMU and my portal says submitted. Most other portals to schools I applied to say the same thing, I don't think it is a problem.

Not necessarily. Last year UW released applied math results in January and didn't release any pure results until late Feb and early March. So I do not expect them soon.

UW watched my application video a few days ago. I submitted my app (for pure math) on Nov.30.

I applied to UC Davis and received an unofficial offer, but my portal hasn't changed at all. It says "your application for Mathematics has been submitted".

I received an email saying that "the committee has put me near top of the shortlist" without offering admission. I wonder what is this supposed to mean? Does it mean I am waitlisted or can I consider this as an unofficial offer?

I guess it's an offer. Even it's a waitlist I think you still have every chance to get in. Congrats! May I ask which school?

I got scared after my rejection from UC Berkeley. The rejection email stated that they had so many applications for this year, 800 applicants for a class size of 30. I guess they usually had 490 applicants for a class size of 41. Will this tragedy reoccur for other universities. I really hope to get into Texas at Austin. How competitive is it compared to UC Berkeley?

Don't worry! I think it won't be quite as hectic for other universities. Because there was no mGRE this year, this encouraged many more people to apply to more competitive universities than otherwise, since the mGRE was the unfortunate determinant of eligibility to apply to many of those sorts of places. I feel like the top 10 schools were overwhelmed with applications this year, but other schools have much more reasonable numbers of applicants.
