UMass Decisions?

Post by josenelson13 » Mon Feb 21, 2022 1:52 pm

I’ve seen some people here who heard back from UMass 1 month ago, but I’m still to hear anything from them. Is anyone else here in the same position?

Same. Kind of weird not hearing anything from Umass since I was accepted by several better schools.

Did you apply before the deadline? How good was your stats? Which area did you apply to?

Apply before deadline. International student. Apply to pure math with specialization in number theory. Get accepted by OSU, MSU, Arizona and CU Boulder. Probably will go to OSU and decline all other offers (including Umass if they accept me, but still no news from them lol.)

I’m also international and applied to number theory, but I got waitlisted by CU Boulder and MSU. If you know for a fact you won’t be attending some of these, consider withdrawing your application so that I have a chance of being accepted out of the waitlist.

Would decline CU Boulder this week. Probably would decline MSU next week. Hope that helps you!

I emailed him and someone else responded and said that my application is still under active consideration. They made their first round of offers in January and will make additional offers on a rolling basis as spots continue to open up.

I got an email this morning saying I am very high on the waitlist. They might send out more offers near or on April 15, but they don’t know for sure.
