econominee 2009:
Institution: Columbia
Program:Economics PhD
Decision:Extreme unwillingness to accept
Funding:-Application Fee
Notification date:March 5
Notified through:E-Mail
Comments: I have no idea why I applied to Columbia. I wish I had used the application fee to apply to somewhere else. This is the second rejection which further brought me down. I also contacted Rice and they told me that they already made the first rounds and they would wait till April 15th for the second round. In short, two official and one unofficial rejections so far!

At least I understood that my credentials are worth being accepted to such a good school like UW-Madison.
  • Institution: Iowa State Masters (Applied to PhD) Decision:Acceptance Funding: if you have the resources to attend Iowa State on your own funding, we hope that you will enroll Notification date:04/01/2009 Notified through:E-Mail Comments: Iowa State hurt my feelings and more than that my professors counting on Iowa State hurt me further. The e-mail regarding "if you have the resources part" is not kind at all. It sounds indifferent and exploitative.
