How's everyone doing? Also, anyone hear back from the schools they applied to?
Rejected from DUKE/TUNL on Feb. 26th; they said they had 313 application for 12 slots, thats 3.8% acceptance.
Haven't heard back from:
SULI // Lehigh Univ. // CU Boulder // Nevis Labs // Vanderbilt // Baylor // Texas A&M // Northwestern // Purdue // SETI // SAO // William&Mary // UC Davis // Notre Dame // U Michigan //
SAO Rejection 3/1. No word on number of applicants, etc.
Does anyone else have information?
Rejected from UM CERN on Febuary 15 (they had 235 applications), and SAO 3/1.
no word from:
AO Puerto Rico
Rutgers sent out an email today saying that they sent out acceptance letters
I don't know if I should be excited or not that two people say they got rejections from SAO yesterday, because I haven't heard anything from them as of now. (Maybe I'm on a waitlist?)
I only applied to a short list of astronomy programs (I have research opportunities at my home institution so it's not the end of the world if I don't get in), and astro programs have an informal agreement to not start releasing results until March 1st, but for the record no word from any of:
As an update, I was rejected from Duke but accepted to LSU's REU program. I haven't heard anything else.
I emailed CU Boulder, they responded saying they had sent out acceptance emails already, and their Summer 2016 program is full.
I am still waiting to hear back from all of mine as well:
-MIT Haystack (I had an interview, but didn't hear back)
I just talked to the REU administrator at Indiana Bloomington. He said they are a little behind on the applications this year, but they will start reviewing them this week.
I know Northwestern has already sent out acceptances (I didn't apply, but like 4 people at my school got in, plus 1 freshman waitlisted). Also UMissouri sent out acceptances (a friend got in).
I'm still waiting to hear back from:
University of South Florida
Georgia Tech (pretty sure I won't get in, I think I messed up on the personal statement)
I think that's all I applied for...
Update: Rejection from STScI (they got over 500 applications this year!), still no word elsewhere.
I see one person had heard from Duke. I haven't heard back anything from them, yet, rejection or otherwise. Has anyone else received word from Duke on any level?
EDIT: Rejected from Duke. The e-mail filtered itself into my junk folder for some reason.
The only other institution I have heard from is USF, whom is scheduling phone interviews.
TAMU - Cyclotron Institute Rejection 3/4
I haven't heard back from SULI. I don't think I got in this year.
Has anyone received letters from :
I have not received a denial or acceptance on any of these. Is it bad if you don't hear anything for this long..
Updates on my 5 for any astro people who care:
SAO - Waitlisted. First round offers had until today to accept, I got a call this morning that I moved off the waitlist and they want a response within 24 hours. (If you haven't heard by end of week, assume "no".)
SETI Insititute - No word, no response to inquiry
STScI - Rejected, over 500 applications
MMO - No word, no response to inquiry
UWyo - Waitlisted, no estimate for how long that might stick around.
LeHigh had their deadline like the first of march they should have first offers by the end of the month. I know Penn state made first round offers because I received one but had a better offer, last year I also got an offer from them by the 16th of march but I had personal reasons for not attending. You should not worry yet especially when the deadlines have just passed, some programs get a lot of applications and take a while to review them all. You can always email the program coordinator and ask for information they are usually very nice and helpful
The wait is incredibly stressful. Especially as a Junior. This is my last chance:/
Northwestern CIERA Rejection 3/9 - 477 applications for 7 positions, that is 1.46% acceptance.
