Sunset, I'm a current Tufts student. I got my e-mail acceptance from the Department at Tufts at the end of February and got information about the financial aid offer in a letter that came from the graduate school of arts and sciences about two weeks later. If you have any questions, feel free to PM.
But then again, that's just my two cents. If you didn't get a good feeling from the program, it's probably better that you applied to other programs you liked more. Finding a good fit is definitely one of the most important factors in choosing a grad school.
Been lurking for a bit, but figured I'd post my information:
UNC - Accepted
University of Washington - Waiting
University of Wisconsin - Accepted
Good luck to everyone.
also berkeley is getting hit hard by california budget cuts (as with all uc's), and is losing a lot of star faculty and services are being cut, i.e. the CED department offices are not open as often as they used to be, and classes are cancelled, and there's not enough money to pay the GSI's in a lot of courses, which translates into more grading and paperwork per person.

I've also been lurking for quite a while, and thought I'd post my info:
Clemson: MCRP - Accepted
Georgia Tech: MCRP - Rejected
Auburn: MCP - Accepted
UGA: MEPD - Accepted
Just waiting to hear financial aid offers before I make a final decision, but UGA's new program is a strong front runner.
Slow acceptance day. lol.
Also, I need a new F5 key.
This means no go. If your status says you will receive two letters, one from the department, one from the graduate school, then you're in.
I'm pretty sure I was kicked out in the very first round. I think they had in excess of 600 applicants for 40 some positions in this fall's class.
Good luck, and don't loose hope.Last year some people didn't get a decision until the middle of May.
just got notification from Rutgers! check your emails guys
Anyone have any sage advice on waiting it out with a job/life other than just refreshing this forum and the grad cafe every 5 mins?
I've been looking at posts for a while.
I'm getting anxious.. Waiting for:
Texas A&M MUP
Texas A&M Master Real Estate
UT Arlington MCRP
Calpoly SLO MCRP -I did my undergrad at calpoly and know they're pinched for funding, so I'm not expecting to hear from CP slo until April/may
Good luck to everyone...
Has anyone heard anything from UCLA yet? I think there was one notice on the grad cafe last week but I haven't seen anything else so am wondering if it was real.
i got accepted to UTexas-Austin and Clemson.
Still waiting on GATECH, UNC, UVA, UI-Chicago, and Rutgers.
I'm really considering going to UT even though its far away. I'm worried that the program isn't as competitive as i think it is.
Just got an acceptance letter from UNC! Tiny letter in the mail.
It's funny too, since I already got into the two schools my decision will, most likely, come down to (unless I'm offered something by one of the ones I haven't heard from)... UPenn or U of Michigan? Heavy Debt or In-State Tuition? I'm 90% sure my mind has already been made up. Still I continue to check...
CWC2005, would you mind sharing your stats? UNC is making me wait.
nateakadino - Texas is definitely a competitive program, the website says the program only had a 43% acceptance last year. Not that competitiveness necessarily means a school is "better" - especially in planning. I feel very lucky to have gotten into Texas and hope it bodes well for some of the (even) more competitive programs I applied to.
