University Of California, DavisPhysics, PhD (F20)Wait listed via E-mail on 12 Apr 2020 I12 Apr 2020
  • I managed to get in touch with the department chair. She informed me that they are still missing the responses from half of the admitted students. They won't be able to extend offers to wait-listed students until they receive responses from the admitted students. So please, if you have an offer from UC Davis and have a better offer, please reject your UC Davis offer as soon as possible. It is only three days now until the deadline. Please do it now.

  • TTPB: how did you know that you were rejected? I’m checking my application now on the "admissionservices.rutgers..." portal and it does not say anything. I also applied for HEP-TH and was told unofficially that I wasn’t getting an offer. Should I get an email or will the application portal show my status at some point??

  • Was on the waitlist and reached out to them yesterday to check for updates. Unfortunately, they made their final admissions decisions already. Also they said "the Covid-19 pandemic has affected our budget planning for next year and that has had an impact on the planned size of our 2020-21 cohort." I was wondering if anyone else knows of other schools that have had their budget decreased this year (or in the last couple years for whatever reasons)? Seems to me that the number of admits is a little low this year. Maybe I'm just crazy though lol. Thoughts??

  • TTPB: I have a Master's in gravitational physics (2 years, focused on research, in a Brazilian university). Applied to AMO, but mentioned a professor who is interested in both AMO and gravity. I have one published paper. Had contact with the professor beforehand (actually, I gave a presentation at TAMU last year).

  • I managed to get in contact with a professor in the admission committee. He said that the acceptance rate of the offers they sent is high enough for them to have a full class next fall. He says it is unlikely for them to send out offers for those in the wait-list. Please reject your UCD offer if you have a better one. This is our last chance. Thank you all anyways.

  • Haven't heard any update from them since mid-February when my application got logged to the department for review. Emailed graduate admissions last week and they just said it takes 4-6 weeks (been longer than that at this point) to hear back and I should hear back soon. Has anyone heard back from RIT yet, specifically for any of their physics programs?
