We are currently reviewing over 180 applications, with the goal of a class of about 7. We do not conduct preliminary interviews in order to make our decisions. Emails to those who are definitely accepted should come from the Director of Graduate Studies over the weekend of Feb. 7-8. We offer full financial support to all our accepted applicants, but details of this support will not be sent until later in the week of of Feb. 9. All admitted students will be invited to visit the department in late Feb. or early March.
Other applicants may be on a waitlist; information about that will come a bit after the first round of acceptances.
