Today I got an admissions offer from the University of Maryland! The administrative email was pretty frank (i.e., We are offering you admission. Please accept or decline.) so I wrote to request additional information, and we’ll see what happens.
So, here’s where I stand with each school now:
- UMD – offered admission!
- Princeton – interviewed
- UCSD – interviewed
- Rochester – interviewing 2/27-2/28
- UIUC – declined
- Harvard – waiting
- Stanford – waiting
- UPenn – waiting
Now that I have an actual admissions offer, I feel much better about everything. I’m not the type of person to count my chickens before they hatch, so even having interviews wasn’t enough. But now I have a real life offer, and it feels great!
