Should we still have hope for Wisconsin? They sent out offers today.
Want to ask the same thing, didn’t receive an offer or rejection today. This is basically my first choice...
Well, I know someone who doesn't expect to get into Wisconsin. His GPA and overall profile is not that great and he was rejected from Penn State. Even he hasn't heard back from Wisconsin, so I am not too excited on accounts of not getting rejected. I'm sure there are people here too who are not Wisconsin material and haven't heard back either. We can only wait.

Apologies if that bums you out, it's just the ugly truth. Wisconsin is much more reputable than Penn State and they get 400+ applicants every year. It's unlikely for someone to get rejected from Penn State and then get into Wisconsin. Even my friend agrees to this part.

Fair enough, I honestly won’t be too surprised by a rejection either. It’s killing me tho that I’ve only heard back from 5 out of 25ish schools I’ve applied for.

Best of luck dude. Hope you get in to UW Madison and it's a good decision for them too. Do not be so bitter tho. I merely pointed out the fallacy in your statement

Hey guys, happy-ish to say I learned I was waitlisted at Duke. If you're one of the people who mentioned getting accepted but deciding to attend elsewhere, it would really mean a lot to me if you could let them know.
How did you learn that? Did they email you or you poked them?

I can confirm that Princeton PACM sent out all offers yesterday, doesn’t sound like there will be any more offers. I asked the DGS, and this is what he told me. Congrats to those who got in!

Just saw someone got an email about interviews from University of Michigan on grad cafe. I still haven’t heard back yet. It really drives me nuts that I applied for 7 schools and only heard back from 1. Also 6 out of those 7 already sent out some offers. I would rather get a rejection sooner than later.

I agree, I wish they would send rejections as soon as they know an applicant isn't getting an offer.

Undergrad Institution: Public University in Michigan, with doctorate program
Major(s): Math
GPA: 3.31/4
Type of Student: Domestic Black Guy


GRE Revised General Test:
Q: 156 (59%)
V: 153 (60%)
W: 4.0 (55%)


Program Applying: Pure Math

Research Experience: Presented 3 posters and given a talk recently at a teleconference on mathematical modeling. Taken two classes in independent studies on numerical analysis and random matrix theory, currently working on a graduation project in matrix theory.
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: I've gotten several diversity scholarships to cover my undergraduate tuition. Also a departmental award (roughly adds up to 12k). I have gotten an award for one of my poster but that's only a recognition of sorts and didn't come with any monetary awards or trophy if you get me.
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: I tutor undergraduate in our tutoring lab, mostly calculus and algebra.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: I participated in over 5 in-person conferences and gotten to know many people from around the country. I think some of the professors I've talked to during conferences definitely will remember me. Two of my letter writers know my for quite a while so I should have at least two very strong and personal letters.
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: I grew up in the hood in a poor family and lived off government assistances (i.e. SNAP, Medicaid, free lunch). My family consistently makes less than 30k and none of my family members have had a college degree. I have gotten fee waivers from all the schools that I am applying to due to low income and being a black male. I made a pretty strong point about being someone from a poor family and being black in America on my statement of purpose, hopefully it helps. I have not yet taken advanced calculus but I have taken one semester abstract algebra, most schools say I am fine and is eligible to apply.

Hello everyone, I just learned that I was waitlisted at Berkeley and UChicago. For those who are accepted but have got better offers and decided firmly not to come to these schools, could you please decline it asap. Those are not my dream schools at first, as I was not expected to get such positive responses from them. But now learning that I might have an epsilon chance, I think I will hope for the best. Thank everyone and stay safe.

thanks,
I was notified via Email by the graduate co-chair in early January that due to Covid 19 they have to reduce the incoming class size, thus putting me on a small waitlist.

I was put in the waitlist too. Don't know how many students will they take from the list?

The UW acceptances are likely valid. I did not post on grad cafe but I got an acceptance late last night. No word on whether that's all the acceptances, but I'm inferring from the email that they will likely all be sent out by March 1.

Of the people who have gotten into University of Washington, what are your specific subfields of interest? I'm curious if UW separates candidates based on subfield interest or if it's only separated based on pure versus applied math.

I know someone who got into UWash and his interests are in analysis (probability, pdes, functional analysis).

Well, there were 6-7 yesterday and two people from here got in today who clearly didn't add their results on Gradcafe. Moreover, not everyone posts on Gradcafe.

Anyway, numbers are irrelevant. If they have sent two waves of acceptances, I just want to know my status asap.

How do you know there were 6-7 yesterday? There was nothing posted on gradcafe. I don't care about number (usually half of the people don't post anyways) but I want to know if there are other sources except this site and gradcafe

I received it on 2/16. The interview is yet to be scheduled, I just sent timeslots where I am available.

I poked Washington University in St Louis and this is what they said “The Graduate Committee has ranked the applicants. At the moment first round offers have been sent by the Dean. No applicant has rejected yet. So, we ask that you keep us informed about your status until April 15 in the event you receive another offer.” Apparently they sent out some offers already.

Has anyone applied to Miami University (OH)? When are they sending the first round of decisions?

yes, I received an email asking me to fill out a form for an interview.
Thanks for this information! If you don’t mind me asking- When did you receive this email and when is your interview scheduled?
I received it on 2/16. The interview is yet to be scheduled, I just sent timeslots where I am available.
I heard that all interview requests were sent out. I haven't received anything as of yet. Do you figure it's over? Anyhow, congrats on your invite!

I love Idaho. I think you will like it there. The costs of living there is low compared to other major cities. Even though Boise is in Idaho, it is quite populated. I have friends went to Boise state and loved it. You can buy a big sack of potatoes for $3.

I can confirm that Princeton PACM sent out all offers yesterday, doesn’t sound like there will be any more offers. I asked the DGS, and this is what he told me. Congrats to those who got in!
Received rejection today:(. Based on a conversation with a current grad student, they seem to prefer students with a master degree for unknown reason.

Is there anyone who is selected for Mathematics Foundation Jacques Hadamard (FMJH) or Foundation Sciences Mathematique de Paris (FSMP) master fellowship ?

Few weeks ago, UCLA made some offers (and there is also one rejection) according to gradcafe; most of them are made in January, a couple of them in the first week February; including international applicants. If we have not received any e-mail yet, do we still have a chance or does it mean that most probably we are going to be rejected soon? Does anyone know anything about that?

Just declined Penn State, Texas A&M and UC Santa Barbara. Good luck to those on the waitlist

Just got a waitlist email from UIUC: "The waitlist is rather long and the chance of receiving an offer is low." Not feeling great, this is my third waitlist.

Did you reach out to them first or did they email you out of the blue?

They emailed me out of the blue. The email says "We have made our first round of offers. If acceptances are lower than expected, we will make additional offers in early April. If acceptances come in as expected, it is possible that we will make no further offers. The waitlist is rather long and the chance of receiving an offer is low."
