    Add me to the list of Cornell wait-listees. Does anyone know if theirs is a ranked waitlist?

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    Add me to the list of apparently thousands on the Cornell waitlist. Hooray!

    PSU and UW

    Any idea when these decisions will be made and how?

    I've been following this forum for quite a while, and am ready to make my first post!

    Waitlisted at Cornell
    Accepted at USC with Dean's Merit Scholarship
    Accepted at UCI

    I called UCLA about 15 minutes ago to ask if a decision was made for my application... she asked for my first and last name, and after what seemed like forever, came back and told me no decision has been made and that I should hear next week.

    Did Jennifer outright tell anyone over the phone that they were rejected? Hahah, I think she just didn't have the guts to tell me.

    I'd be curious to know the # of applications last year vs admits vs enrolls at Cornell. It seems like the school people want to go to, and rightly so. The program sounds amazing.

    240 - 137 - 58.

    That's according to ACSP Urban & Regional Planning Guide - 15th Edition.

    I've been reading posts on this forum for awhile now, and I thought that I should post myself. I am a computer science major with a 3.4 GPA and absolutely no planning experience, and I got into two programs already. For all those of you who are freaking out, don't lose hope. You never know what admissions committees are looking for....hang in there!

    Accepted:
    Rutgers
    Florida Atlantic University

    Waiting for:
    NYU
    USC
    UNC
    Cal Poly SLO

    Based upon last year, we should be notified via mail about the decisions. You should receive notice from Portland State the week of the 15th. As for U Washington, it appears that some people will receive notification that week, but could come a week after.

    This is tough for me because UW is probably the school I want to go to the most, yet it's one of the latest to notify!

    Any idea what those stats are for USC? Also is this referring to Masters or PhD programs?

    THANK YOU for sharing this! I didn't realize there was a free grad school guide - just the Planetizen one.

    Last week Krista Bargsten from U Washington indicated that they expect to be sending out decisions by early April.

    I bet that they lose good prospective students by sending notifications so late in the game, especially if they notify close to the April 15 deadline. I think I will give her a call the week of March 15th to see how soon before the first batch of notifications hits.

    I've been watching this forum post for a few weeks now. Thought I would introduce myself.

    Just called UCLA and spoke to Jennifer based on recommendations here. She let me know the good news - I've been accepted!! Didn't ask about funding since that is unlikely. She said a letter should be coming in the mail shortly. My online status has not yet changed, still has info about 2009. She says there will be an admit day on April 7th. I am still waiting on USC, Berkeley, MIT, Columbia, NYU, Pratt. I went to college at UCLA and this was definitely one of my top choices.

    Here are my stats: 3.71 GPA. 1190 GRE (680Q/510V/5.5A). 2 1/2 years work experience in community development. Public Housing research program and museum internship in DC. I was worried my GRE score (very low verbal) would be a real road block but I guess not!

    Thanks to everyone who posts on here for all the information - it is great to know so many other people are in the same boat as me during this admissions process.

    Congrats on the acceptances everyone!

    After an agonizing wait, I've heard back from my first program--I've been accepted at the University of British Columbia! Got an e-mail this afternoon at around 5pm Pacific Time.

    Best of luck, everyone. For those of you that still haven't heard from any schools, keep the faith!

    I was just wait-listed there as well. However, I know someone (Historical Preservation grad) who told me their faculty is going through a huge shift right now. Many of their professors are gonna be retiring at the same time, so pretty soon their faculty is gonna be rather scarce.

    For anyone interested in OSU or thinking of visiting, I spoke to Maria Manta Conroy and she said that the open house will be on April 5.

    Congrats to everyone who's gotten into UPenn, Rutgers, Cornell, UBC, USC, and UCLA! (I'm probably missing some in there.)

    Has a single person gotten an outright acceptance or rejection from Cornell yet?

    I think there was someone earlier in the thread who got accepted to historic preservation, but that was it. I guess that they've only sent out the waitlist notices for planning and nothing else yet?

    Question

    Quick q: are rejections usually sent through e-mail?

    The reason I ask: I received a response from an adcom personnel stating that no decision has been made on my application, and that I should accept an e-mail this or next week.



    Agh, it's a Freudian slip! No letter? Waahhhh.
