    Heard nothing from UT Austin, UMD and UBC, while there seems that batches of offers and rej have been released according to GC...

    @yitz15, my prior is that admissions at the top 5-10 will be significantly easier for Fall 2022 entry because the top applicants this cycle won't be re-applying and there's a lot less winner-take-all this cycle than usual. Thus I wouldn't bank on there being a critical mass of applicants with good offers this cycle forgoing enrollment to re-apply next year due to trickle-down. Moreover, schools aren't going to be granting nearly as many deferrals as last year.
    So as long as schools return to admitting normal cohort sizes next year, next year will be significantly improved. And we have every reason to believe they will because bear in mind that it's the combination of deferrals last year and the job market being bad that forced departments to cut funding and cohort sizes this cycle to support more 6th year students.

    Some countries provide grants for students studying in the US - e.g. France with the Fulbright program.

    I'll be really curious how many people end up taking this offer... if you're a competitive enough candidate to get into Penn AND have external funding, it seems highly likely that you have dominating offers. And it might be an odd cohort/grad school experience.

    Has anyone heard back from Stern Econ? They usually sent out offers in late Feb in previous years.

    They have started reaching out to people in their ‘waitlist that’s not a waitlist’ for short interviews. Stern Econ has target of 2 students this year, and the whole Stern department aims to admit only 9 students in total.

    Thanks for sharing! 2 students are so much fewer than my expectation. I haven't seen any update on GC or received an interview from Stern. Guess this probably means IR.

    A bit disappointed I didn't hear from more schools this week, I'm still waiting on 8 (4 are IR).
