Those are all good schools!  What area of chemistry are you pursuing?  How did they contact you about the decision?

How did they contact you about the decision?
The schools I have been accepted to first sent me a email with the letter, and indicated that a hard-copy letter would be arriving in the mail.  U of Chicago sent me a letter, no email for rejection.

Got informed via email for all of them (just got one from UIUC actually) except for Scripps which was with a phone call and email later.

Oh and I plan to do organic chemistry, specifically something in total synthesis...

Sorry to hear that, have you heard back from the other schools?
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

I am still waiting to hear from Buffalo and Ga tech.  One of my recommendation letter for Cincinnati never made it so I had to resend it this week.  Hopefully I'll hear from them next week.

I've already heard back from Michigan. Did you check your status online? Seems like mine was not updated...

That's what I hear.  I've talked to quite a few people who have heard back.  The office said that everything is complete and is currently under  review, which doesn't seem to bode well for me since seems most people have heard from them.

I've heard back from SUNY Buffalo, NC State, U of Arizona and U of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Still haven't heard from U of Washington, Vanderbilt, or Georgia Tech. For Michigan, if you check your status and there is a link that says "view decision" next to "view application data" and "view credentials" then it's been updated. The department sent me a letter on Feb. 16 saying that they recommended me for admission and that the graduate school would be sending me something soon.They eventually sent me something on Feb. 23 saying that I was admitted.

so I am guessing you were accepted into buffalo and NC state??  When did you hear from them and which branch of chemistry are you pursuing?
