Physics updates/acceptances (2010)

  • 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.

Is there anyone who is still waiting the final answer from Berkeley?
on the grad cafe there were numbers of rejections as I saw.
Do they have a waiting list? I think at least they should tell me my status. I sent Donna an email but she didn't reply it. It's there a chance that they forget to send me my rejection email?
that sux!

Yes, i'm still waiting. I've also asked about my status, but got no response. I have the same feeling of being forgotten. they seem to send rejections at a slow rate, everyday a few appear on grad cafe. i guess mine will come, sooner or later, unfortunately. anyway, their webpage says that all decisions are done by march 15, so there's not much waiting left.

Regarding UMD, did anyone get a response this week? They also told me they would finish sending offers this week (wednesday, actually), but nothing appeared on grad cafe... so i will have to wait the spring break? what happened?

There's a very high chance that those who haven't heard from Berkeley have been rejected. I doubt there is a waitlist. They seem to offer 3x what their class size eventually is. I suggest you to call Donna instead. She didn't reply to the 2 emails I sent (spaced a week apart).

Has anybody heard back from Syracuse or CUNY?

okay, now it's March 17th and I'm still waiting. I sent Donna an email Tuesday and there was no response.
Whatever, I'm going to call them for the final answer.
What's wrong with Physics department in Berkeley? That's really irritating :evil: .
