Just got my rejection from Stanford.

Still waiting to hear from MIT and Harvard. At this point I'm not too worried. I've already got a helluva choice to make.

Heard from UC Irvine. They said they will wait until I take the Chemistry GRE until making their decision....I have no idea if thats good or not. I guess they could have rejected me. So its probably not too bad

if they said that i wouldnt be surprised that the chem gre is just a formality. I've heard from many people that it's not weighed heavily into the equation so i doubt theyre really "making a decision" on it. You're right in that if they really wanted to reject you they already would have.
Oh and a friend of mine was rejected by northwestern three or four weeks ago. Haven't heard of any acceptances from there.

I had a friend get accepted to Northwestern (I believe he's actually attending there).  He had a few years of research experience in an organic lab also.

Yea waiting on Scripps, Berkeley and Cal-Tech still.  Better to wait then to already have been rejected.

 :( Yeah I called Columbia and Scripts a few days ago and they said that all of the offers have been given out at this point so if you don't have an interview lined up, I'm afraid it may be time to throw in the towel.

Does anyone know if there is a deadline for schools to respond back to you?  Scripps, Berkeley???  I know its probably to late but I find it wierd to have had no contact by either school and I wouldn't want to confirm UCLA and then later be accepted to Scipps.

They should of gotten back to you by now. You need to contact them now!
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
