I saw a posting on TheGradcafe.com... If I don't have received any email, should I think I got a fail?... Grrrr...
I posted one of the acceptances on TGC today (I think there were actually two). I received an email from the DGS pretty early in the morning, so I *suspect* that all of the initial offers probably went out today. However, I know for a fact that they work with a waitlist, so don't count yourself out yet.
Who's got the deets on the CMU post?
Yeah, give us some details! I'm dieing here!
no word(s). at all. good or bad. from:

ucla
berkeley
stanford
pittsburgh
unc chapel hill
princeton
yale

nyu
mit

Some remarks regarding rejection notifications. Stanford has started to mail out rejections. Got mine yesterday. Who knows what Berkeley is doing. UNC appears to be notifying rejects in alphabetical order (I'm a B and I know several A's and we all have received Sayre-McCord's email, but none of the C-Z's I know have heard anything). This may not be the case, but it seems to be the best explanation of the available data. Lastly, MIT has also begun mailing their thin-envelopes. I expect to receive mine soon.

I suspect that if you don't hear anything from these schools in the next week one of three possibilities holds: (i) you're still in the running, (ii) the school is incredibly slow at notifying people, or (iii) your local postal carrier is collecting your rejection letters and creating a scrapbook to give you for your upcoming b-day.

As an aside, I must say that is quite the list the OP has there. All top 20 schools. If only I had the gumption to attempt such a feat...

I realize it's been a while since the first round of waitlists/acceptances from CU Boulder. Has anyone had a rejection yet? I have heard nothing so far.
PS- talking about PhD, not MA.

Has anyone hear anything? Early in the week someone said they had contacted them and heard offers were supposed to go out this week, but I haven't seen any indication that this has happened.

I just saw a posting abou Rice U. Is there anyone who can clarify the posting? 'Solicited' or 'Unsolicited' e-mail rejection?

What's up with them? Last action we had was a single acceptanc on the 18th, and a bunch of rejections before that.
Fuck Indiana...who cares

They are over-rated.

Based on (1) a grad cafe post giving the total number of applicants and (2) the email those of us on the waitlist received, it appears there are 18 people on the waitlist. 170 applicants for 9 spots, 12 accepted, 140 rejected; that leaves 18.
Someone on TGC posted an e-mail rejection from Georgetown. If that poster's here, I'd just like to confirm that it was a rejection. I'm thinking that someone meant to actually post an acceptance or waitlist, but instead selected the "rejection" option.
Yeah, in the past Georgetown acceptances have come by e-mail and rejections by postal mail.
I've just got my confirmation e-mail, and came straight here to let everyone know! Now my only problem is figuring out if I really want to wait to hear from the other schools that I applied to, or just accept right away! It was my first choice, so this is very exciting. :D

From past tgc posts it looks like they're due next week. Anyone else nervously waiting on this one?
Which would you choose? Would your answer change if you were married?

I guess you need to think about what exactly "low" rank PhD is.

Example: looking at CVs of current grad students shows a Tufts grad student at UPenn (rank 39 worldwide). Is your low PhD lower or higher?

Generally: find the worst-case scenario for an MA graduate from your program (the worst PhD programs they've moved on to) and compare that to your current PhD offer.

There are so many postal rejections on Saturday; it's strange.
Seriously, cut it out! There's a 5,000 post limit to boards on livejournal. If you keep posting too much we will all die, do you understand me?
I'm noting a disconnect between theory and practice here.

So above, we came to the conclusion that we should all post more. At least I think so.
