Applied but haven't received a response yet

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

I applied to some schools people have already been accepted to, but haven't received a response yet.
Is it safe to expect a rejection? :(

Yes and No
You should definitely dig out the results from last year to make a comparison
For example, some schools would release acceptance in one big wave
And if you observe similar patterns this year for that school, then you are probably rejected from that school
However, some schools would do rolling admission
But based on the severe competitions and the limited number of PhD position this year
I would say with confident that, if you are not accepted in the early round, then your chances are meh
But at least you got Northeastern! I myself, would probably be rejected by 20 schools
