2013 Engineering and Physical Sciences Admission Results

<p>I guess its time to start this thread. Please keep your posts on topic to stats, acceptances, denials, interviews, and updates. Hope this would be like last year's thread <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/graduate-school/1237555-2012-engineering-physical-sciences-admission-results.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/graduate-school/1237555-2012-engineering-physical-sciences-admission-results.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Good Luck</p>

<p>It would be helpful for others if your stats could be posted along with the schools you’re applying to.</p>

<p>Hey spectastic, which schools did you apply to? I think it’s still a bit early in the season so don’t get too bummed just yet. I figure, no news is good news. If you haven’t heard anything yet then you haven’t been rejected! </p>

<p>Just to be sure though, have you double and triple checked your applications to make sure they were complete? Also, I’ve heard of emails going to spam, have you checked your spam folder?</p>

<p>Has anyone heard back from Purdue or GA Tech Chemical Engineering? The ChE department at GA Tech is seriously ****ing me off- never giving me a straight answer about admissions…</p>

<p>I was accepted to Purdue’s ChemEng grad program almost two weeks ago, their visit weekend is Mar. 1st-3rd. I didn’t apply to GA Tech so I don’t know about them but I have seen some GA Tech posts on the gradcafe.</p>

<p>For Masters?</p>

<p>I was going to apply for GA tech, but their essay topics were a little quirky, and I didn’t want to shell in money into a top 15 program that I probably won’t get in.</p>

<p>iambored, do you happen to know who’s on the admission committee at UT? Is Ellison or Peppas on there?</p>

<p>@spectastic- I think Peppas is for sure on the committee and Truskett and Sanchez are also on the commitee. </p>

<p>On a side note, GA Tech department of ChE doesn’t even answer its phone after calling 4 times today.</p>
