Nope. I was actually just wondering whether each group has a short-list or some group just sent out offers without making a short-list.

I'm pretty sure the latter is the case for Geometry group.

Ok. Stay calm then. Don't stab anyone(I'm actually saying this to myself...). They are probably going to have all the positions filled by the end of Feb.

I applied to 12 REU's. UNL, Chanel Islands, UCSB, Mt. Holyoke, NC State, OSU, Clarkson SUNY POTSDAM, Rose-Hulman, Penn State, Michigan State, Claremont College, and Northern Arizona University. Boy was it fun! Hoping to hear back from some soon.

I received an offer from University of North Carolina Greensboro's REU (Algorithmic Combinatorics on Words) but have a very short time to accept/decline. Anybody have any advice?

I would ideally like to see what other programs I get into, but this time frame doesn't allow for that =(

Oh, also, does anybody have experiences that they'd like to share with me from UCLA RIPS? Its part of the reason that I am hesititant to accept my current offer.

Congratulations on the offer! If you're still waiting to hear back from programs higher on your preference list, you can send them an e-mail politely asking about your application status, indicating that you have already received an offer but are more interested in their program. But if you don't hear back from anywhere else, I think you should accept the offer just to be safe. After all, REUs are extremely competitive and there's no guarantee that you'll receive further offers.

Also, to everyone: if you accept an offer to a program, please withdraw your other applications to streamline the process for the rest of us who haven't received offers yet. Thank you.

I just got the confirmed news: the Geometry group was done, so if you haven't heard anything, then you should forget about SMALL. I didn't get an offer (2nd time), and I really wonder how to get into this group, considering that I have two publications when applying this year, one of them was on "Involve" (co-author with another prof.), the journal in which the professor being in charge of this group is the editor:P

Anyway, anybody hears back from the Combinatorics REU program at UMN?

Oh I actually heard back from the group I was interested in but it was bad news. Are you a sophomore? If yes, then you can probably get in next year.
I actually don't know why a math journal would be called "Involve", as I don't understand why a mathematical object would called an 'ideal'.

It's because this journal requires a verified interactions between a professor and a student when writing up the paper(the student basically has to write a paper under the guidance of his/her professor in order to get the paper published). However, the editorial boards include many good mathematicians, so you should check it out for reference.

Regards to Small: Yes, I'm a sophomore but I will likely graduate next year, so this was my last shot. In fact, I don't even believe I can get in if I re-apply, since my profile won't change much compared to what it is right now (maybe 1 or 2 more publications on well-known journals and some graduate courses). Admittedly, this program is too tough for me to get in:)

Just got accepted by UMN Minneapolis REU! Have to get back to them by next Wed, I think. I'm still waiting on SMALL Combinatorics group though. Did anyone apply to that group?

Just got accepted for SMALL's probability and number theory! :) I am probably going to accept. They want to know by Friday morning. Good luck to everyone else!

Just letting you guys know that I got accepted to UCLA RIPS today (by phone), so they must have started looking through applications. Good luck to any other applicants!

I got rejected from SMALL and the statistical genetics REU at Dort College. I hope I get in somewhere this summer! :/
