You're right, it absolutely is. Is there a worse word than excruciating? I can't even be in the house. The mental build-up is actually causing physical pain. I knew today was going to be hard as well as Monday. That is why I have planned marathon-distance runs from my house to keep me occupied and away from this computer.

On a happier note - congratulations to all of you who received acceptances to CCA and/or WUSTL! That's so great! Both awesome programs!

Hi all... for those of you waiting from Ohio State, I got in February 7 in the M. Arch I. I submitted my app/mailed in my portfolio a few days before Jan 15, so was surprised to hear back so soon. It was the only school I applied to--whether or not I attend is solely dependent on funding at this point.

Yes, congrats to everyone who has heard so far! It really didn't hit me until about 3am last night when I was still celebrating the good news.

For everyone still waiting good luck and I hope you hear soon!

Yay into GSAAP! Has the tuition gone up? Was it $21,000 per semester last year? Also as im an international, no financial aid- god it is expennsive! But so happy to be accepted somewhere anyway!

I'm about to walk up to Columbia and kick Avery Hall...

Misery loves company.

Curious, when were you expecting the response from Columbia? Was it early? I hope at least one of mine sends early.

Last year according to gradcafe columbia sent out responses on March 8, 2010, so I was expecting to hear back on Monday this year as well. So it is, in fact, a little bit early.

Two years ago I was accepted in GSAPP and chose to delay grad school and do something else (Teach for America) for two years. This time around, I was not so lucky :( I guess the numbers game didn't work out. I hate that architecture schools don't offer deferalls.

Congrats to all the GSAPP acceptances - great news.

I'm beginning to wish I had applied there - an early win seems like a great way to settle the nerves.

Can ask what people think about the solo Princeton acceptance on Gradcafe? Does it seem suspect at all that it was posted during the middle of the night?

Mar 4, 11 10:54 am  ·

CThomas

Yep I don't know how believable that is. Who in Princeton is sending emails out at that time? There are also no other acceptances or rejections posted on gradcafe. Its also much earlier than all other Princeton replies from previous years.

I see your as well versed in historic gradcafe posts as I am. How sad we are. Next week is going to be an unproductive one in the office I think.

Congrats on GSAAP btw!

I posted a rubber duck on page 5 of this thread in the middle of the night.

So, yea.

I think this process makes us sad- I'm checking my emails every other minute and being a horrendously unfocused employee.

I just realized that GSD notifies by mail. I might never find out the response... my apartment is a package/mail delivery black hole.

Been accepted to GSAPP MSAAD! Unbelievable. Truly excited.
I'm an international student too and the whole application process was very new to me.

I've also been accepted to Cincinnati's MS Arch program. Official acceptance email/letter is yet to come. Hopefully the other schools won't keep us waiting for long. Wish everyone all the best.

COLUMBIA GSAPP. IN! 5 to go! If i don't get into Yale or Harvard, it looks like i'm going to NYC! High-fiving a thousand angels

I'm really starting to regret not apply to GSAPP... would have avoided the need to move AND I wouldn't be singing "Won't you take me to Crazy Town" (to the tune of funky town) in my head.

Lunch will be a blessing when I can control myself away from a computer.

It seems as though all of the schools I applied to are not the ones notifying people, and it is making me crazy! I did not get a letter from Wash U yesterday, and my mail has not come today yet. My mailman is a lazy bastard who acts like he's on a Sunday stroll, only it's never Sunday when he's actually delivering mail. Okay, I realize I'm ranting like a schizophrenic - it's just that I am a completely useless human being during this craziness. The only function that I can feasibly perform with any zeal is hitting refresh on my computer screen.

Did those of you that got accepted to Wash U get emails in addition to the postal notification? There were several posts on grad cafe suggesting that "acceptees" were receiving both forms of notification, and this is adding to my neurosis.

By the way, congratulations to all of you that have received an acceptance. Woo hoo!

are you Swick?

@ abyssinian

I remember thumbing thru your portfolio awhile back - not at all surprised you got into Columbia; you have really nice work.

I'm debating attending the open house in a month, any other admits considering the trip?

@arc.affect

I'll probably make the trip. Parsons on 4th, GSAPP on the 6th.

@jetvancake @arc.affect I'll definitely be there.

Mostly because I have to figure out how I'm going to pay for it all... I already feel broke and homeless WITH a job. I can only imagine how it would feel to be a student living of federal loans.

The email from Wash U was congratulatory + notification that a package has been sent and that you should have already received it or will receive it very soon.

I'm likely to to attend the GSAPP open house too! I'll only attend the 2-3 schools i will choose from. I applied to 8 though. Waiting on 5 more. Those open houses can change everything. I know a guy who was so sure he'd go to Columbia but changed his mind entirely after attending the open house

If the MIT post on gradcafe is real I expect to see a lot of msgs on here very soon!

I should go for a walk... and wish I applied to MIT as well.

I'd like the MIT one to be real.

Looks like last year was the first Friday in March, so it could be.

BRING IT MIT

my mit status page says application record last updated 03/04/11

nothing about a decision though. dammit.

Mar 4, 11 3:30 pm  ·

jamesherm

i don't even know why they bother with that 'last updated' business. most of them, mit included, just change at midnight every day.

i assume it's just to discourage crazy archinect people from calling or emailing?

Mar 4, 11 3:38 pm  ·

ugh. seriously doubt that GSD post is real, unless they're about a week and a half early this year.

"Applicants will be notified by mail of the Department's decision by April 1. No decisions will be given by telephone. "

i think that just means, 'don't call us,' as opposed to 'we will never contact anyone by telephone ever so throw your phone in the bin already.'

unless there were 13 consecutive fake mit posts last year.
