2018 REU and Summer Program Acceptance Thread

  • #1
It is that time of year again. Here's a space to check on acceptances for REU programs or other summer jobs. SULI and SURF come to mind. I imagine most of them will start coming by the end of the month. What are you waiting on? What are you excited for? What do you wish you had applied for? What will you do for the summer if you don't get an REU posting?

I'll start the conversation off. I got accepted into the SULI program at BNL. I have till next week to accept it and I haven't heard back anywhere else so I think I'm going to take it

Congrats. My wife and I met in an internship program at BNL. Her academic schedule resulted in her arriving a couple weeks late, so I made sure I stopped by the Curie House (female dorm) the night she arrived to welcome her ... :). The rest is history.

I think you'll have lots of fun at Brookhaven. Oh yeah, lots of good science too.

Congrats on your acceptance!

I applied for Fermilab for SULI and I'm still waiting to hear from them, though from what I've seen in other threads they generally take a bit longer to accept. My second choice was BNL. It was really more of a proximity choice than anything, because I'm from Texas and being 650 miles away from my family for college is bad enough.

I think overall I'm excited because it would basically be a totally new experience for me. I really wasn't educated at all on internship programs and I thought SULI was the only one of it's kind when I applied last December, so I wish I had done more research and applied to more programs. And if I don't get it, I won't be too bummed. There's plenty of really fun things I can think of to do over the summer. I just wish I knew already!! :-p

Has anyone applied to/heard back from Cornell CLASSE, Maryland TREND, or Purdue's REU? I am a freshman so I'm not expecting to be accepted but I still would like to know if they have sent anything out (so that way I know whether or not I still have a chance!)

I received a first round waitlist from LSU at around 12 noon last Sunday. In reply to the above comment, I haven’t heard from Purdue yet either.

I applied to TREND, LIGO, Fermilab/SLAC SULI, Notre Dame, Nevis Labs, Rochester and University of Washington.

I hadn't heard anything back from until I got an offer from TREND on Monday! I am really glad and I will accept it. I am a student at a Scottish University in second year and have the equivalent of a 4.0 GPA. I was told 170 people applied for 11 places at TREND.

I accepted an offer from SULI PPPL. However I also applied to MIT's MSRP, but they won't release decisions until next week. If I get in to MIT, I would have to withdraw my acceptance to SULI.

Anyone heard back from UC Davis?

I reached out after getting an acceptance elsewhere to inquire about the status of my app.
They “currently have offers out with a deadline of this upcoming Friday March 16th”
