Decision Time 2009 Rumors/Information/Predictions

Postby cato88 » Mon Jan 26, 2009 6:19 pm

I just thought there should be somewhere to post rumors, information, or predictions, on when you think a program will make decisions. Posts should maybe start with school name in bold. feedback?

Applied Physics from Stanford University mentions end of February.

OSU told me late march to early april... but i don't really care about that anymore
PSU astronomy says they don't know themselves
Stanford Physics I am guessing around Feb 27th

The best guess is look at last year's profiles.... where is Colorado APS`?

OSU Astronomy called me on January 9th to clarify my school's GPA scale (it's out of 4.33 but I later found out that on the transcript they renormalize it to 4.0, so I may have said something wrong but it won't make a substantial difference) and told me they were reviewing my application and to "not be nervous" to which I replied, I'm too exhausted to be nervous (after the week of AAS). Haven't heard anything since? Hope my sense of humor didn't turn them off.

I heard a prediction that some people will get into graduate school, while others will get rejected. The claims are still under verification, but evidence points to a strange world with many physics students.
