George Mason Math sent out today
Let other programs you are interested in know (by e-mail/phone). In my case, I got a few more offers and some "it's too early for us to be able to tell you, so take the one you've got" (and some non-responses, at least since yesterday)
And I know these questions tend not to get answered, but does anyone have any experience with the LSU or Central Michigan math REUs? I can't find any testimony anywhere and would really like to hear some first hand accounts if possible.
When you e-mailed other programs, did you tell them that you had another offer, or just that you're trying to finalize summer plans? (I don't want to risk losing a spot if they know I already have a spot somewhere else.)
Does anyone have any experience applying to REUs as an older student? (I'm 30)
I told them I had another offer. If anything it definitely helped more people say yes, rather than just "he'll be fine".
Wouldn't it make them more inclined to think "they'll be fine". After all, they know you have a different offer.
Just received a rejection letter from E3S by the way. The were really tied for my top choice, but oh well
I got so busy I am behind on my applications, most of which are past due. i have to find some which have a past-march Due date now.
That and I was busy studying/catching up to a class I might fail anyway unless I drop it - a complete waste of time. I'm pretty bummed about the whole thing.
Received an e-mail from Worcester Polytechnic Institute asking for my phone number so they can call. I wasn't aware that this program required an interview... does anyone have experience with this sort of thing? I don't know whether it is actually an interview, or what to expect?
