  • Did anyone receive any decision (admit/reject) regarding Phd Computer Science from Indiana University Bloomington? I have not heard back, does it mean I am automatic reject now?

  • Viterbi guy here. To the poster below, I have replied about PhD admits a day back (scroll down). PhD selection was completed by February 1st week. Appx 20-25 admits out of 900+ applicants and almost all are attending. Robotics profs like Prof. Sukhatme, Prof. Mataric etc. have selected the robotics students long back as far as I know. They typically don't send out reject mails till late May/June. So, if you haven't got an admit by now, you can be 99% sure it's a reject unless by some miracle somebody leaves their seat now (which is unlikely). All the best!

  • Hey Viterbi guy, I graduated with my CS Masters from Viterbi. Still haven't heard back about my PhD app. Would you happen to know if they are done with PhD CS admits - Robotics spec. ?

  • To the poster below, UFL 'CHEATED' me too. They did the same thing. Couldn't find my GRE and TOEFL, it seems. They didn't even mention what the problem was (why they couldn't find it). I am supposed to defer the application now. Sad!

  • Viterbi guy here. Some universities like USC, UCLA etc. are oversubscribed with thousands of applications pouring in every year. Plus, with the added complexities like Spring admit, S&E, specializations etc, it takes time to review all applications as all applications are read from top to bottom by someone at some point of time so that no mistakes are made. There are also various decisions which are dynamic depending on people accepting/rejecting offers already made. Even UCLA is grappling with this problem (I'm aware that they requested applicants to disregard the Apr 15 deadline). So, have patience. People are doing their best to review all applications as thoroughly and as fast as possible.

  • Viterbi guy here. God knows why my replies get deleted. The Admissions Committee does not provide such kind of info as they want to maintain autonomy and flexibility in the decision making process. According to what I know, majority of the offers are out as I said, but there is still a large wait-list. I don't exactly know if they have any intention of sending out more admits but I can assure you that they are still reviewing which is a good sign. But yeah, don't get your hopes up too high. At best, they may send out a few more offers here and there (no more bulk admits to be sent out). Spring semester admission odds are really arbitrary and I'm not sure how they do it. I helped in the PhD CS admissions actually so I know mainly about PhD CS and MS CS Fall admissions in detail. S&E as I said, I don't have much idea. I cannot give out official stats as they aren't official yet (selection process isn't over yet) and I cannot divulge running average values. That being said, PhD CS admission standards have gone up a few notches this time (they have become far more selective as we did have much more number of PhD applicants than last year) with MS CS being only a tiny bit more selective than last year.

  • CHEATERS! They took my money and they are claiming that they couldn't find my IELTS. And it is to late to send it to the committee for review for Fall 2017. You can defer your application to Spring or Fall 2018 if you would like. NICE! Thank you!

  • Here is the link to confirm the Viterbi guy's info: https://viterbi.usc.edu/admission/graduate/spring-faq.htm One thing to note, it states April 27 as the last deadline to accept or reject the spring offer. Does that mean that candidates with NO decision as of now, should consider it a reject?

  • To the viterbi guy again. Thank you so much for the info. If only other members of admissions committee could provide such info. Been waiting for 6 months now. The longest any university I applied to has ever taken. I believe I am on the waitlist. Could you please provide stats and other details for S&E. Also, what are the odds of being admitted for Spring semester?

  • Yo Viterbi guy you r awesome How many MS CS do them accept for fall 17. How many will them accept for spring. Do u know the average GPA GRE. I am Math major, CS minor
McGill University (Montreal, Canada)Computer Science, Masters (F17)Rejected via E-mail on 28 Apr 2017 I28 Apr 2017
  • Email to check portal. Refused admission. Thought I had strong profile, two publications, very relevant research and industry experience, and clear research goals. However none of the professors actually worked in the exact same field as me, so probably didn't get picked up.

  • To the Viterbi guy below, is that for the general CS program or is it for all the CS programs including Scientists and Engineers?

  • I have to accept/reject by 5th May along with $1000 if I accept the offer. Have they given you a date by which they will get back to you? Guys, can you please advise me on the Post Study work permit. This program is only for 10 months so that means we get a work permit for only 10 months? That will be less than a year's work experience making us ineligible for certain streams of permanent residence. Has anybody got any information regarding this? Also the provincial nominee program for BC has International Post Graduate stream which doesn't require a job offer but the degree must be from pure science natural science IT computer maths stats etc. I looked at this list and found it strange that MDS program isn't listed in it though it's a math and stat program. I will appreciate any help and information!

  • To the USC poster below, Did they had given scholarship to any master applicant? Does they really give some aid for student with admit? I have never seen a admit with aid from USC.

  • The Viterbi guy again. MS admissions are winding up. A few set of acceptances will be sent out by May 15 for Fall semester and a few acceptances will be sent out by June end for Spring semester. That said, majority (~90%) of the offers have been made but hope is there as many may leave their seat (there is a large undeclared wait-list). MS admissions can in theory extend upto the start of the semester as the university likes to choose as many qualified candidates as possible. All the best!
New York University ( NYU GSAS )(Computer Science - Data Science), Masters (F17)Wait listed via E-mail on 13 Apr 2017 U28 Apr 2017
  • To the post below, nope I haven't heard heard anything back from NYU after waitlisted. Deadline for those accepted to decide on their offers is May 13, so hopefully we can hear back of final decision some time around mid to late May?

  • To the poster below. Do you know about situation for masters application? The wait is driving me crazy.
The University Of Southern California (USC)Computer Science, PhD (F17)Other via Other on 28 Apr 2017 I28 Apr 2017
  • To the PhD applicants who are still waiting, sorry to dash your hopes but PhD selection was completed by February 1st week. This time there was barely any wait-list movement due to the fact that they selected only the top few candidates (barely 20-25) out of 900+ applicants and almost all are attending. They typically don't send out reject mails till late May/June. So, if you haven't got an admit by now, you can be 99% sure it's a reject unless by some miracle somebody leaves their seat now (which is unlikely). All the best! [I am a Viterbi student]
