    All Decisions In

    Well, all my decisions are in:

    Accepted:
    Harvard
    Michigan
    Penn

    Rejected:
    MIT (expected, beyond the fact that they're MIT, my application sucked)
    Columbia (I realize this comes off snooty, but that was unexpected--but I also didn't really want to go there anyway and expressed no interest in NYC)

    What do you know--I wanted a heavily design-based program in a post-industrial city with diverse neighborhoods--and those are the schools that accepted me (well, if you factor in Michigan's relative proximity to Detroit).

    It looks as if I will be attending Harvard in the fall as they gave me the most money (Michigan, Penn, and Harvard were my top three choices and $ was the dealbreaker--anyone else decided on Harvard yet? Anyone attending their open house?

    I'm currently signed up to go to the Penn open house, but I might change my RSVP because they didn't give me much aid.

    Sent an email to Georgia Tech, finally got the word I was rejected.

  4. #454
    So I've finally heard back from all my schools...

    Accepted
    Penn
    Michigan

    Wait listed
    Cornell
    UW Seattle

    Rejected
    MIT
    Berkeley

    I'm going to Penn this fall barring an acceptance from Cornell. Will anyone else be at either Penn's or Cornell's open house?

    All In

    Accepted
    UNC
    USC
    UT-Austin
    Michigan
    Harvard

    Rejected
    MIT
    Berkeley
    UCLA

    Heading to the Dean's Merit event at USC on Thursday and Friday. Between that and Harvard, I have my work cut out for me. Still waiting on aid from UT-Austin and UNC though.

Where as from USC i already received their brochure and welcome letter by post. So is it the same for you too regarding Rutgers? Would you be coming here on an F1 visa? If you would be any idea as to how many i20's can one have to get the visa? Thank you!
    Hey Sway.RK,
    Sorry for my late reply but I was out for the weekend. Are you going to the Rutgers Open house? Unfortunately as I am in Greece now I can’t attend it. But I am waiting to hear news from you as we both want the same (both design and policy courses)from our programs. I read somewhere that Rutgers is more policy oriented and I also checked your conversation in the forum thread for Rutgers Open house 2012…From the other hand GeorgiaTech MSc program belongs to the department of Architecture so I am sure it will be more design oriented. However NJersey is near NY…I am wondering now if it is a nice place to live and what about job opportunities there…It is very high in the rankings but I don’t know if I have to base my choice on that. I am not sure also which has a better reputation as university, Rutgers or Georgia Tech. Any idea? Did you receive an acceptance letter from GeorgiaTech? I have been accepted in NYU too but except from the fact that it is in Manhattan it doesn’t seem so appealing. (Maybe I am wrong of course).
    As for Rutgers acceptance I just received two different emails, one was the letter and the second was about the bank statement and the international student form (no financial assistance ). But I don’t know when is the deadline and what I have to do next…Do we have to accept the offer until 15 of April and after that to send the statements? No idea…Yesterday I sent them an email to ask. Maybe @schmidt486 can help us here…I am coming with an F1 Visa but I don’t know the procedure yet. I guess you just need only one i20.

    P.S I tried to convert my grade 18.67/20 based on the recommendation of World Education Services for Greece (WES Grade Conversion Guide) because UCLA asked for the GPA-worksheet. (I know that it is not correct because we have different grading systems but it was mandatory...)

    Cornell - Financial Aid

    Quick question for the admitted Cornell folks out there - has anyone received info on financial aid beyond what is mentioned is the acceptance letter? If so, did it come via email? Did you have to fill out any forms beyond the FAFSA?

    Thank you!

    UCLA Mail?

    Has anyone received anything in the mail from UCLA yet? I expected something in the mail by now since the packet was supposed to be sent out last Friday, and am wondering if it's just my mail that's slow, or if everyone else is experiencing a delay too.

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    RE: UCLA Mail?

    Yeah I haven't gotten anything yet either. I'm in NYC but if they mailed them out on Fri, it should have been here by now. I'm guessing another delay?

    UCLA aid

    Just got mine in the mail this morning, and I have to say I was pretty disappointed :-/


    I got a grant covering 1/2 of the professional school fee.

    At this point I'd be paying less at USC...

    UCLA Aid

    So maybe tomorrow in NoCal? That would be nice.

    Whatever aid I'm offered, I'll just be glad to finally know (or that's my zen attitude about the decision right now, at least).

    Yes I am planning to go to Rutgers open house. I guess I will find out how the program is when I go there. I also plan to go to USC's open house too. So that I can decide between the two. Rutgers, USC's and Georgia tech's programs are all great. I guess the only way I can make a decision is by visiting the schools. I still haven't been accepted to georgia tech. They are re-viewing my application again and will tell me in a few days i think. I have no idea about Rutgers deadline. I guess for the financial documents there is no deadline. You can send it when ever you get those ready. But I don't know about the acceptance deadline. When is the last date for that - Is it April 15th? Let me know If you hear something from them. Even I checked with the i20 thing you need only one. So in this case you can accept only one offer, since they have a SEVIS number which tracks every student and which university they go to by the US home land security department. I guess from what I have heard every school takes about a month to send you your i20 documents and then you have to book an appointment with the US embassy in your country to go to the visa interview for F1. Oh well thats it for now Let me know whats happening at your end! Oh and about my GPA I didnt convert it. I just sent it to all the schools without converting. Mine was out of 10.

    Hey Sway.RK the acceptance deadline( which I think is just an email saying you are going to accept their offer) has to be done by April 15. The forms for the I20 dont have a deadline. I'm an international student too and I just got a reply from them on that. I'll be at the open house too so looking forward to seeing you there.

    Hmmm, I received a PDF of my department letter from the coordinator on Friday, but still haven't seen the actual physical packet. They did say that they nominated me for an incredibly swank graduate division fellowship, but told me I was fairly low on their ranked list of nominees. They basically evaded the question of departmental aid if I don't win the fellowship, and said they couldn't really talk about it until the grad division makes their decision (which should be by March 30).

    I'm flying to LA first thing tomorrow morning for the USC event, and this entire waiting game is making me want to tear my hair out, since funding will be a HUGE part of where I decide to go (and it really is down to USC vs. UCLA for me).

    im actually not quite sure. i was just going to email admissions once i decided. and for the moment i got accepted into a few schools and ive got the most aid from rutgers so its looking like it might be my best option but still waiting to hear from 2 more schools to see if i get more aid there. i'll find out quickly i hope!

    UCLA Package

    So I finally got the package from UCLA and there was no mention of aid. I thought they'd at least offer me a little, but guess not. (On the plus side, this will make my decision between schools a little easier.) Congrats to anyone out there who did get a good aid package offer from UCLA. Now I just need to hear back from UNC on aid and I'll be done obsessing.
