Anyone got an admit from NCSU (Fall 2008)??

Postby rita_chandra » Tue Apr 08, 2008 6:28 am

Hi,

I've been waitlisted at the North Carolina State University (NCSU) for PhD in Physics (Fall 2008). So if anyone of you have already got an admit at NCSU but not planning to take it up, would you be so kind to withdraw your application as soon as possible. I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Rita

I'm sitting on an offer from NCSU. I'm on the fence about it. I'll probably decide this weekend. It is a boutique school (no HEP at all for example) that is heavy into experimental nano. They have an absolutely enormous amount of money per faculty so while they aren't uber highly ranked, someone thinks they are doing something right.

My other school can't compete money wise and a 2 minute look in their labs confirms this, but they are a classic department with a finger in every pot and much more well known.

Too bad we can't sell offers to needy students for cold, hard cash.

I think I will take the offer from NCSU. Their nanotechnology program looks good and that is what I am planning to do. Sorry for not able to help you. Best of luck.

@qwerty
I recieved an email from them on 5th April informing me about the waitlist status.

@forecast8
Thank you very much. I have still not heard from them, but will let you know when I do.
