    Looks like itís time to buckle the seatbelt. 18 apps in and nothing but terrible nerves at the moment. Congrats to our American University friends who already heard back!

    These are going to be some cruel months for me. I already sent my applications (top 15-25 programs), but I am not particularly optimistic about them. To top it all, two weeks ago I got a job interview which I did not expect at all, but is really appealing. I am just crossing my fingers to avoid the worst case scenario: no acceptances and no new job.

    Btw, congrats to those getting acceptance letters already. What is it with these programs sending offers so early? Applications for American University haven't even closed yet...

    You can check gradcafe for results, if you're so inclined.
    I won't do a roll call thread, but I will sticky an admissions and rejections thread.

    Likely the applicant has worked with a big-name professor on the adcom, who really wants the applicant. In those cases, there's little need for deliberation so the offer goes out right away.

    From looking on GradCafe, it seems like this is specific to American as that's the only PhD program so far with a handful of admits. Also, from looking at Taus' post history I don't see why they would have a connection to American, but maybe they can clarify.

    Regardless, the rest of us have many long weeks ahead

    Well let me briefly share my background first- I have 3 years research experience in an internationally reputed research institute, along with all A's in college-level algebra, calculus and analytical geometry and applied and theoretical math courses, and a masters in economics from the US with a decent gpa. I would say my lacking is that I have an average GRE score.

    Having said all that I don't know what is the deal with AU with all these early offers but I did apply to their PhD program before (a couple of years back) and got in with full funding and the works. Maybe in my case that played its part (??) and my application have only gotten better with the added 3 years of research experience that I have now. Another thing that might have helped my case is that there have been a couple of students in the program who are near to/have graduated from AU coming from the college I did my undergrad from.
