What does it mean? I am so exited.

  • 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.

What does it mean? I am so exited.

Congratulations! You have been selected for admission to the Physics program at UW Madison. The Graduate School will make the official determination based on our recommendation. Details of the offer have not yet been finalized but we wanted to give you as early notification as possible of our decision. An official letter of admission detailing the offer will be sent to you soon. You have an excellent record and we are confident that we will be able to offer you a competitive financial package. You should soon be hearing from our faculty who can discuss your area of interest and provide more information on what our program has to offer.

We will provide the Graduate Schoool a copy of the offer letter once that is prepared. The Graduate School will then require additional financial documentation from you in order to finalize the I20 paperwork should you choose to join us at Madison. Please note that international students who receive teaching assistant offers are expected to begin the program in the summer session starting July 13.

Again, congratulations! More information will be sent to you but please let us know if you have any questions.




Somebody help me clear about this? I am so exited.

The department has selected you for admissions, but the school itself has yet to accept you. You will get a letter from the school itself when you are accepted

Edit

Congrats

Congratulations!

Don't worry about the fact that they say it is "unofficial". This is a pure formality. Only Deans are legally allowed to make financial offers, so the department "recommends" to the Dean, who basically rubber-stamps it. It might take a couple of weeks.
