Anyone planning on turning down their acceptance? I'm on the wait list and it's my one glimmer of hope.
Not yet, but I am in at four other places, so odds are I'll turn FSU down. But my visit there went very well and its still a live option.

I'll keep you updated on my decision though.

Notified by email this morning.
What number are you on the list? If offered, will you accept?

Yeah so I figured out how to use the website finally (because I'm brilliant like that!) and my app is still pending.

Is anyone else still waiting after checking their status. If you are, we should probably start a post on the Prospective board to talk more frankly about UM!
I contacted Christopher Morris direct at Maryland and was told I was rejected. All first offers have gone out already - I assume waitlisters are still being informed.
There are two Columbia waitlists posted on the grad cafe. One of them definitely says that they found out that they were (or would've been) waitlisted by sending an email to the department to withdraw their application. Does anybody want to claim the last one and say whether they found out because they contacted them or whether it was a normal notification email? Or is there anybody else who was waitlisted and feels like sharing?
I got an e-mail from Varzi saying I am on a short wait list. He was not responding to an inquiry.
Got an email from Allen Speight around 3pm eastern time. I'm the one who posted on grad cafe.
cool! are you going?

Was accepted this afternoon via email, but without funding. This is the second program I've been accepted to without an offer of aid, and this one was worse than the first, as the language about funding was buried far enough down the page that I didn't catch it for at least 10 seconds.

Check your online statuses for McGill. They've started to post rejections.
I've read through most of this thread and I have two questions:
1) Do schools actively inform those who are on their waitlists. Reading posts throughout the thread, it is not clear to me how people are finding out that they are on waitlists.
2) I've heard nothing from several schools one way or the other (Columbia, NYU, Harvard, UColorodo, Georgetown). Is it safe to assume, at this point, that I've been rejected from these places?

Thanks for the information
1) They contact you
2) Yes
I'm leaving town for 3 weeks, so I emailed Texas to see if they would give me a little info and I was informed that they are not at a stage to reject people but that I was neither on the admit list or waitlist. So, looks like I have my choices to mull. I'll probably keep my activity limited to the prospectives page from now on. Best of luck to everyone here!

To clarify, it just started. But the interviews are usually the last 10 minutes of the show.

Also, it re-runs at 2 am.
I saw a waitlist a couple pages ago. Anyone know if they've sent acceptances?
I think the waitlist posting was from a troll.

Rutgers: "No Decision"
University of Arizona: "No Decision"

Putting up with silence from UC Boulder, UC Riverside, and UF Miami is rough, but pretty obviously a rejection based on their past behaviors.

But SEVERAL people have received acceptances, rejections, AND wait-listings from U of A and Rutgers. Why am I still in this mysterious "fourth category?" I'd bet my applications were among the first 25 they received!
Yeah, I'm pretty tired of waiting for word from UC Riverside. They'd better send me something!

Has anybody been rejected from these ones yet?
Five minute intervals here. Anybody worse than this?
