So what's up with UPenn?

  • 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.

So what's up with UPenn?

Postby kev12592 » Wed Mar 19, 2014 1:06 pm

They're the only school where I've heard absolutely nothing. I even e-mailed them last week for more information, and---NOTHING.

Does anybody on here have any more information?

A few weeks (or months?) ago I heard from a POI that they finished the first batched and I was on their short-list for additional admissions. Never heard from them ever since.
I'm also curious as to what is going on.

EDIT: From thegradcafe it seems the first round was sent by the end of January. User fkvkfdlek wrote the following on this topic http://www.physicsgre.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5400 (Sat Mar 01, 2014):

so... they got back to me today via email

they said they are still making decisions on a daily basis.. continued patience required....

And yet multiple peeps on thegradcafe.com say they've heard back from PSU.

PSU seems to have sent out multiple rounds of acceptances and rejections. My application status, however, is stuck at "Submitted."
