Decision Dates 2018

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

Congrats! Heard it's really hard to get into UChi this year since they accepted too many people last year.

Wow nice, that's a crazy good financial package. Maybe I'll be seeing you there in the Fall.

Congrats! You must be so good that they give you that good of a deal. Let me know if you are going to the open house.

I assume you're referring to Montana State?

I've applied there too, and I haven't heard back yet unfortunately :?

From what I know it's a pretty good school. I worked on a project with some professors from there, and they were really nice and knowledgeable. Congratulations to you as well!

Any thoughts on when it is appropriate to write schools for status updates on my applications? I applied to 13 schools and have only heard from one thus far (Michigan). I did contact one school about something else and asked for a status update, and was told that my application had not been reviewed yet because they go in alphabetical order! The wait is gut-wrenching! Especially when I see some (not all) of my schools sporadically coming up here and on gradcafe with acceptances and rejections...
Any thoughts? Perhaps I should just suck it up and leave them alone :oops:

It's still too early to bug them. I am in your position too; some of the schools I have applied to have sent out acceptances but I have got neither acceptances nor denials from them. I am gonna hold off till March 15th before asking schools if they have n't replied yet (I expect them to by then though).

May I be curious what your division is? Have all offers of AMO been delivered?
I'm upset for no news to me.

Anyone hear back from LSU or New Mexico Tech yet?

I talked with my contact at Montana State. I was told that I didn't make the first round of applicants, but that I'm definitely not rejected yet. If you've been accepted to Montana State and you know that you won't be attending please decline your offer!

Well, I have officially received NO response from the following schools, which seem to be sending out acceptances and rejections regularly: UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UC San Diego, U of Oregon, U of Washington, NYU, JHU, Columbia, UNC, UH Manoa. I contacted Oregon a week ago, and was told they had not opened my application but would shortly. UCSD just sent a generic response saying would send notices over the next several months. Davis did not reply, so I contacted the POI I have corresponded with in the past. Waiting on that. Am doing the same for UH today.
My question is if anyone knows what the heck I should think at this point? My applications are complete and in order. They are all just "under review", "submitted", or "pending". I can't figure it out and I am losing my marbles thinking about what I will do if I get all rejections :oops:

I got rejected by UW days ago, still waiting to hear something from NYU

Yes, I have seen both acceptances and rejections from UW. I have heard nothing. As for NYU, I am not sure if they have sent out rejections yet, but I have seen plenty of acceptances. I am trying to think no news is good news at this point. Oregon told me they notified everyone before March 15. My application was still in line for review... good luck with everything. Commiseration helps :)
