Ann Arbor

  • 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.

Nothing here. Odd since they had made decisions by Feb 13 last year.

Yep, I just got an acceptance email today (2/24), so yes, they're still definitely accepting people.

Also, it looks like there are two visiting weekends. One from March 12th-March 14th and the second from March 26th-March 28th.

I checked my status today and it writes "A decision has been made. Your program of application will inform you of the decision. ", but they haven't informed me yet :?

At least on this site, it seems not a lot of people applied to Michigan.
It seems people are flocking to Madison over Ann Arbor..

I am also seeing the "decision has been made" message on my status page, but have yet to hear anything. Congrats to Valentino, its rare for internationals to hear from a school before domestic students, but your profile is at least three orders of magnitude better than mine so I'm not surprized :wink:

I finally heard from them as well. I didn't get rejected though, they just didn't recommend my application for admission.
