    Nvm, looked at flynnigans gradcafe app and MIT posted everything on Feb 17-24 last year. That means it's uh... actually realistic that they might have results out already.

    One other thing of note from the app is that they sent out all acceptances on Feb 17, and most rejections on Feb 24. So it's possible we are just seeing the tiny fraction of accepted people xD

    Or that it's EJMR trolls. That's my hope

    I think if we see a few more there is cause for concern ... But unlikely at this point. I haven't seen any of the top 5 (besides Stanford) post offers before the second week of February in any year. Though obviously this year could be different.

    We're all thinking about this a lot. My own feeling is that it will be a somewhat (but not wildly) more competitive year. I think you're generally correct about university finances, but that there may be slightly more applications due to the economic slowdown (people hedging their bets on the job market), as well as many programs reserving some funding to support more current PhD students into a 6th year than they otherwise would have.

    Could also just be a weird year. Admissions committees are dealing with uncertainty just like we are, and they have to make guesses about how many offers they should send out based on their target class size without overshooting. That calculation might be more difficult if many of us have applied to more schools than normal, or if there's lingering uncertainty about how many funded slots they're going to have.

    Seems unlikely that MIT would post results at 6am Cambridge time, and perhaps more unlikely that there are American students in that time zone or even later who were awake enough to check their emails

    Should come out within 7-8 days, based on past years

    Decisions should start rolling in next week. Should we make a results thread?

    Just got rejected from TI. Wasn't a great fit, but was the lowest ranked program that I applied to.

    Seems like a good idea.

    One last quiet weekend before this thing really kicks into gear... I'm hoping/expecting to hear from Minnesota next week. It's going to be a tough school for me, and I wish I'd applied to an easier one that also tends to release offers early in the season.
