So they're just contacting the best candidates first, or they're just doing it alphabetically or randomly?
No, I'm talking about Washington U in St. Louis (WUSTL).
I am waiting for UW Seattle as well.
Don't know. I forgot to ask.
Has anyone heard anything from University of Minnesota? An email from the department in early Feb. said they expected to announce decisions starting March 1st.
In case this helps you a bit... I checked online the admissions notification dates for the programs (M.Arch I)I am waiting for:
GSD - Early March
U Penn - March 14th - Results available Online
UBC - Middle March
Berkeley - End of March
MIT - April 1
U of Oregon - April 1
Columbia - First week of April
U of Washington -No later than April 15th
Hope it helps.
I just got an email from I.I.T. with the official offer for admission. They gave me AP plus $24k.
Good luck everyone!
Congrats on the scholarship:)
Are you an international student? just wanted to know if they give scholarship to international students.
Thanks! Yes I am, I didn't even apply for it so I was very surprised/excited for it. Are you applying to IIT?
Got admitted to IIT with advance standing. A few days ago they sent me the official letter, but they didn't mention any thing about funding. So I think that I didn't get it.
Congrats! Maybe we will meet over there. Where else did you apply?
Can anyone tell me anything about Northeastern?
I think it is the Northeast... but I'm not sure about that, I might go look that up...
Ugh! I just want to know you know? I want to know if I should be sad or happy. SOMETHING.
It's obsessive to check your email every 5 minutes. Also! Check your junk email often, current colleagues of mine told me they didn't see their email until later because it got sent there.
That does give me some hope! That they're scattering the results.
Anyone know about Cornell?
actually, im muucchhh more into the scientific/engineering aspect of architecture than the artistic one... because it provides an irrefutable, robust, raison d'etre... so im aware of the passive design strategies and technological innovations that SOMETIMES come into place.. but the prob is that MOST of the times design is carried out in such an arbitrary, subjective way that it is left to the artistic opinion of the designer. It starts with the program organized into extruded boxes, and a subsequent "dressing up" of these boxes... the goal seems to be the nice composition of beautiful boxes, and the architecture ends up looking "nice".. but not much else, so boring seems an appropriate description. It is this design method aimed towards achieving an elegant, muted demure mainly thru the reliance of artistic instinct that i find very old school. Most of the works here are so derivative and safe that it is rarely intellectually engaging or aiming to do anything new. Its just business as usual... hence boring.
THUMBS UP IF YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE AN ARCHITECT AND ARE A B.ARCH OR M.ARCH II!
Just got ACCEPTED TO MARCH 1 AT GSD via email!!!!!
I'm not trolling, I've been refreshing my email every five minute.
Looks like no one else got it yet, but let's see if we hear more good news from GSD!
This was my third try at GSD, so I feel very emotional right now.
I wish you all the best with the 2013 acceptances. Never give up. I didn't. If GSD didn't accept me this time, I was to literally never reapply due to their policy.
Just got accepted to GSD! I'm shaking from excitement!! Check your email guys!
Congratulations @ ciennac!! Third time's the charm!! I'm glad your hard work paid off.
So far (M.Arch. I):
In: Harvard GSD, YSOA, Taubman.
Waiting: MIT, PennDesign
Pretty excited to look through these programs again, congratulations to everyone who just got accepted into Harvard :)
accepted to GSD! Unbelievable and such a relief after waiting for so long.
For people who are sharing their results - it would be helpful to hear anything about your background that you are willing to share:
That's right. You're the guy who thinks M.Arch 3s (or M.Arch 1s at the Ivys) are strange birds.
OTOH, kudos to all of you with the balls to undertake the 3+ M.Archs. if you a) either wanted to be an architect earlier in your life, or b) your studies in civ. eng., const. mgt., interior design, or WHATEVER steered you toward architecture and you are taking that route.
Congrats to all the GSD acceptances, guys! Impressive! So excited for everyone achieving their goals!
to the WUSTL acceptances, what program did you get placed in? 3, 2+, 2?
Big Congs to all the GSD acceptances, are you all M.arch 1?
Contrats to those accepted to GSD!! Do you know if they send all the notices at once? I haven't gotten any yet :(
So is it safe to assume that not having an email from the GSD means a no?... Were there any for MArch II? Congrats to everyone on their acceptances to Harvard!
yes... has anyone been accepted to MArch II or MArch 1 AP? I hope they haven't gotten to those yet.
im waiting on M. arch II too
Has anybody who has been accepted to UMich planning on going?
i think they sent out all the acceptance email first and waitlisting or others later
Any MDesS letters yet?
got into u of h! no email from gsd so i guess i'm out
Hey guys- Congrats! Lelf.estrada- I am also waiting on MDesS. What program did you apply to? I applied to the real estate program.
i guess no email by now from GSD means we're out?
got call from U.VA!
bummer. no email yet either. this limbo is slowly sapping my life-force (even though it's not looking good...)
What program did the Wash U acceptances get into?!?!
I just called Harvard, the person there told me they are sending notices as they go. They have not sent all of them at once and we should expect the notices in te next two weeks. Good luck!
617.495.5453 - In case you want to check.
We're they able to tell you your status when you called?
anything from Princeton SOA ?
@tylerhopf they said they cant tell you by phone and we should wait fr an email.
S$%#& im bugging out.....
Lets not all call the number and get their bees in a bonnet
Also, two weeks???!? I'll never live that long
Why do they do this? Reject people first then give acceptances out later.. makes everyone crazy!
hey congrats to those accepted so far!
just heard from gsd

fingers crossed for everyone!
GSD MLA 1-ap
I once spoke to the graduate architecture admissions office at a popular school with about a 1 in 8 acceptance ratio. They know right away from the pile who they want and who do they don't want. They wait a little bit, in layers, to see which of those they want will accept their offer. They then work out the wait listed group, if at all. Sometimes, the yield ratio is higher than they want, targeting about 25 to 35 spots, and they don't like it when they get a larger class than they had anticipated ... even by 5 or 10 people.
Thank you Harvard for making my night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
