I was waitlisted by the Applied Math Program (not pure math) - haven't heard anything yet.

Is there an official waitlist for TAMU? I saw a bunch of entries on gradcafe but when I emailed them they only said that they’re currently looking at making second round offers.
I'm pretty sure this means you're waitlisted. I emailed and was told that I was waitlisted

Got waitlisted by NYU Math PhD program via email notification. About 5 students are on the waitlist. Please decline the offer if you have a better one. This is my last hope. Please!

Waitlisted by UCSB, please decline if you're not gonna go, it's my best choice left.

I asked Purdue for an update, and they said that they have *175* applicants on the waitlist! This is for 35 spots. That's just absurd, why keep so many people waiting?

That sounds insane. My professor told me that many schools have two waitlists - one that they would admit if people decline offers and another that they would only admit if things come to the worst. They may email the first waitlist people and just keep the other ones waiting.

Lol they ghosted me after I asked them about whether they’ve made a shortlist

At least the suffering will be over in a week

Just declined my offer at Rochester. Best of luck to anyone in the system there.

It was the grad program assistant asking if I have accepted any offers elsewhere.

(like I don’t have any offers elsewhere 🫠)

But yeah two years ago rutgers was also sending this to ask if anyone is still staying on their waitlist and that one went nowhere so I’m not sure if it’s personal or not

I’m on the waitlist and I’ve received no email yet. I assume this means I’m pretty far down their waitlist and I’m unlikely to get in. I STILL haven’t received an offer from any programs and Boulder is one of my last shots this year, so please let them know soon if you intend to attend somewhere else to give poor folks like me a chance.

is it legally okay to accept an offer from school A now, and then if school B offers me admission after april 15, decline school A and attend school B?

It's legal, and I know someone who did it. I might end up doing it myself as I accepted an offer today. (Not gonna chance things going wrong at the last minute.)

I'm a little confused at how these things work. If you do that, it's possible they would reject someone else - and then if you decline the offer the other person might not be available anymore. Doesn't this cause wasted seats at times? Seems unethical honestly even if it is legal

I wouldn't necessarily call it ethical no, and I would avoid doing it if you can. However, what are you to do when colleges don't get back to you by their agreed April 15th deadline? Imo you have to accept an offer if you have one. It would be ridiculous to insinuate that in order to be ethical a student make no choice and hold out on a what-if. Furthermore, from my personal perspective, my school choice isn't solely being influenced by academics. If there is a school which allows me to get an equivalent education and be nearer to my family and longterm girlfriend then my personal ethics prioritize them.

I also find this whole process a bit strange. If we knew what our odds were many of us wouldn't be put in this situation. For instance if you knew "I'm #1 on the waitlist" it makes a good deal of sense to not accept an offer. As it stands the process is a blackbox to me, and this decision will affect several facets of my life for the next 5 to 6 years. It makes sense to me then to make a decision that is best for me and the people I care deeply about.

Edit: to be clear, you should always inform both schools of your situation and ask for permission from your initial acceptance's grad director. What I'm saying applies mostly to receiving an offer after the 15th as well which was my friend's situation.

Does anyone know at what timezone we have to accept our offer? I'm guessing by 11:59pm EST?
