Thanks for this info. Do you know by any chance if this is also the case for Toronto?

I poked them and they said they sent out all first round offer and would probably send a little more in April.

Have anyone got some reply from CMU? I poked the admission and they told me their new offers are based on the acceptance rate for the January round.
Just got rejections from both Math and Philosophy in the last couple days.

do you think it might just be for Logic/ACO program? I haven't received mine yet and I'm pretty sure I won't get in :roll:

I just got rejected from CMU and I'm definitely not logic/ACO! So you at least still have a chance, though I guess they could be sending stuff in batches. Best of luck!

I reached out yesterday and was informed I am on the waitlist. They made their initial offers, and said they might make more if people turn down spots.

Hey guys, update-ish on UMich: they alerted me that they're still reviewing some more applicants now and that more information is to come soon. Their main priority is not admitting too many people with the same research areas to minimize the chance that they don't find an advisor upon arrival.

Posting here as I found this website extremely helping with schools choices etc, so wanted to contribute back.

Undergrad Institution: UCLA
Major(s): Applied Mathematics
Minor(s): Specialization in Computing
GPA: 3.72 (Math GPA : 3.70)
Type of Student: International Indian Male

GRE Revised General Test:
Q: 167 (90%)
V: 165 (96%)
W: 5.0 (92%)
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:
M: N/A cause of COVID-19

Program Applying: Applied Math PhD where possible, Math PhD otherwise. Interested in numerical analysis/partial diff eq modeling and applications.

Research Experience: Research experience with my undergraduate professor in numerical analysis over the summer between my 3rd and 4th year concerning Zero Shot Learning. Involved reading some papers and doing some MATLAB coding.
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Dean's List for several quarters, member of Phi Beta Kappa
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Worked as a teacher for the junior group of a math circle.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Taken 3 graduate classes (2 about numerical analysis and 1 in PDE theory)
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: N/A

Applying to Where: (Color use here is welcome)
Northwestern - Pending
USC - Waitlisted on 2nd March, if you got accepted and don't plan to go please do decline!
University of Notre Dame - Invited to interview on 12th Feb with department chair, felt it went very well, still waiting for a response as of now...
Dartmouth - Rejected on 26th Feb
UC Davis - Pending
University of Houston - Admitted on 26th Feb (emailed by Graduate Director saying I have been accepted with TA support and to expect an official letter with details in the coming week)
Arizona State University - Admitted on 28th Dec but no funding received so pretty much a soft rejection
George Washington University - Admitted on 20th Feb with fellowship and stipend coming out to around $25k

So far I'm quite happy. I really like University of Houston's program and location, so more than happy to be admitted with funding. Just waiting on 4 other schools as of now.
Hey Bro, if you are not going to the program of George Washington University, could you please decline it? I am currently on the waitlist! Thank you so much!

Thanks for this information. So does that mean that they will review more applications post the interviews, or will more interviews be sent out? Either ways, it's good to know that we still have a shot there!

Sure! I'm just waiting for an official letter from UH with TA info (should be coming in a day or two) before I decline GWU's offer. But will definitely do so right after. Hope you get in!

Everyone that they're considering will certainly hear by March 15th -- so I wouldn't be discouraged now at all. I was told I was in the running and should hear something within the next few days (as will other applicants), but I actually withdrew as of a few hours ago because I grew more interested in another school. This is all I know. I wish you the best of luck!

Anyone hear from UC Santa Cruz (Pure mathematics)? It seems that they have sent the first-round offer out, but I did not receive the rejection or waitlisted letter. There is only one report about applied math of UCSC on theGradCafe.

Uh not sure. They didn't give me any indication, just told me "I'm on the waitlist and they will inform me if accepted". Also this was for the Applied Math PhD. If you're applying for Pure Math PhD their waitlist/acceptance rollout may be different?

That's really strange. Why didn't they send out as many rejections and waitlists? I haven't heard anything from them as of yet, unlike schools like Stanford or Caltech.

Actually a lot of people (myself included) are waiting on UCLA. Looks like they're sending out rejections in batches.

Ok, NYU update: they said that they made almost all decisions and don’t plan on many more offers. FYI - >600 applications, don’t know much more.
This is very unfortunate if true. Who did you email to get this information?
It indeed is! E-mailed the person I happened to know and who is on the admission committee.
Do you guys think this increase in the number of applications this cycle due to waving the GRE requirement?

For sure. The Math GRE being waived also caused more people to apply to top 15 institutions than usual.

Hey, did you specifically heard of March 12th? I have a Canadian offer due March 12th, and I wanted to hear back from SBU before committing, so this worries me very much.

My only info on this is from this forum, so I can't vouch for its accuracy. That being said, the quote was something like "decisions are expected about March 12th," so potentially before then or a few days after. I did hear, however, that they might reach out to gauge current interest before sending out offers, so maybe we'll get an idea of our chances a few days earlier.

Poked UC Santa Barbara last week. Direct quote from the response e-mail:

"A first round of admission offers has just been made. We expect to continue making additional admissions decisions throughout the next several weeks, possibly through the end of March."

Hang tight fellas, and best of luck!

I was contacted yesterday by Stony Brook. I am in pure math. The email said the committee was very impressed with my application and that they would like to schedule a meeting to talk about the program, confirm my interest, and get a sense of my own interests. I had that meeting today. The DGS answered some questions about the program and told me that final decisions have not been made. The committee will meet again next week to finalize decisions.

Guess I am going to be rejected then. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing this with us.

I was contacted yesterday by Stony Brook. I am in pure math. The email said the committee was very impressed with my application and that they would like to schedule a meeting to talk about the program, confirm my interest, and get a sense of my own interests. I had that meeting today. The DGS answered some questions about the program and told me that final decisions have not been made. The committee will meet again next week to finalize decisions.
Guess I am going to be rejected then. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing this with us.

Good luck everyone!
I really wouldn't assume this, and I'm not saying that to be nice either. The impression I got from the DGS is that this process is still ongoing, he didn't say all interviews have been sent out, let alone happened, and the fact is the committee still hasn't decided for sure. So trust me if you can that it's not over. Stony Brook is a dream school for me, and I'm not sure at all that I'll be admitted, despite the interview.

Has anyone heard back from Rutgers after the last waitlists? It seems they have sent all offers.

I haven't heard anything yet. When the DGS asked if I was still interested he said that he expects to have more information near the middle of March.

Has anyone have heard back from Utah? I know they have sent their first wave of offers already, but haven't heard anything since then (Early February)

Are you on the waitlist?
