    I emailed asking that question and found out that while it has not been guaranteed in the past few years there has only been one year in which some first year students were not funded. Most students do get at least partial funding in their first year.

The "Excellent" reviewer's feedback was also so much more detailed, and the "Poor" reviewer wrote all of two sentences and basically claimed something to the contrary of what was laid out in my resume, so it all seems just a bit bizarre... Congratulations to all though, you should feel proud and honored!
    I had the same thing, fair in one column and excellent in another. My first reviewer only wrote a sentence or two and disqualified me even though my other reviews were pretty good. Is there no oversight for this sort of thing?

    Anyone have movement on any waitlists to report? I'm WL at Cornell, Penn, and Wharton Applied Econ, and would choose any of them over my current top choice (Minnesota, maybe Wisconsin). I know most of this action will probably start after visit days...

    Same boat here with a couple of top15. When do people usually hear back? Nothing before April?

    When will you decide between Wisconsin and Minnesota?

    Probably by the same time someone will choose between Penn and another offer. I think we will only see real action april 10 onwards, there are lots of people deciding between 2 or 3 offers while waiting for a better offer in a waitlist...

    Can anyone confirm the waitlist/rejection on Gradcafe for Boston U?

    I got rejected from BU today. Not the person who posted on grad cafe but I can confirm some rejections have been sent out!

    Great thanks for the update. I guess I'll just sit on my hands until they respond, or have people had success reaching out to the department in these situations? It could be one of those rejected from PhD but accepted to Masters deals or something.

    Might not hurt to reach out to them! I am surprised the rejection emails weren't sent in a batch and that there are no other posts on grad cafe besides the one. The email was short and not personalized and it came from the graduate school rather than the department itself.
