  • TTPB: I wrote the longer rejection comment on 4/13, and that was the exact email I received as well. I responded to it, with new publication updates, but received no further notification past that time until the last-minute rejection.

  • TTPB: Damn! If that is true it's quite unfortunate to get rejected after receiving such an email. :(

  • They sent an email like below: Thank you for applying to our graduate program in Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University. We are still reviewing files and wrapping up our admissions process, but we expect to make a few more offers in the next week or so. Given that the April 15th deadline is fast approaching, I wanted to reach out to you to see if you are still interested in our PhD program and have not accepted any other offers. Can you please reply to this email to let me know what you think? Please also feel free to share with me any other information that you think may be helpful in guiding our decision process and timeline (offers from other schools, Northwestern being top choice, prior interaction with faculty, recent updates/papers etc.). If you respond positively, it is possible that one of our coordinators may get in touch with you in the next several days to setup an interview for next week. After replying, I got a rejected mail. WTF.

  • Was first emailed asking if I was still interested, and after responding yes, the admissions portal and follow-up email revealed my acceptance 90 minutes thereafter.

  • Seriously, just rejects me already.
Northwestern UniversityMechanical Engineering, PhD (F19)Rejected via E-mail on 13 Apr 2019 A13 Apr 2019
  • Email to check portal. The process was so poorly handled that despite initially being my top choice, I was likely going to reject even if I magically got in last minute. Only contact was end of March asking about my other offers, and suggesting a potential interview that never materialized. Have MS, 5+ yr professional research experience, many publications, partial funding, multiple offers elsewhere, etc. Reached out on many fronts but couldn't get a response out of any profs...even the grad program admin I had to call because she wouldn't respond to emails. Congrats to all accepted, I hope the lack of communication in my situation isn't indicative of how the program is run.

  • TTPB: I received a rejection email from the department chair around 5:45 pm last night after the initial "waitlist" email the other day.

  • TTPB: Yes, Northwestern's efficiency is disastrous. Should have never applied here. Waste of time and money.

  • TTPB: Good point, but it’s 5:47 central time now, pretty sure they went home.

  • TPsB: were you from the first or second waitlist? (recall that Northwestern first added some persons to the waitlist, and a couple of days/weeks later, they added more).
