被Dream school 干掉了。。。下面是原文，一直希望能有机会去这里学习，可惜。|
[size=12.8000001907349px]We are sorry to inform you that we were not able to admit you to the graduate program in Statistics at Penn State. We received almost 500 applications from students around the world. We deeply regret that we were unable to admit all qualified applicants. Because we already have a long waiting list, this is a firm rejection. We do a joint admission for the MA, MS and PhD programs, and any applicant rejected from any of these programs will not be admitted to any other of these programs.
[size=12.8000001907349px]With such a large applicant pool, we do not have the resources to advise you about the specific reasons in your case – the most likely reason is that another applicant with similar training and/or interests seemed to us to be a better fit to our program.
[size=12.8000001907349px]The admissions committee spends an enormous amount of time assessing each application carefully and weighing each applicant's academic record, achievements, and statement of purpose. We try to consider both the potential for each applicant to be successful in our program, and our need to have a group of students which brings a variety of strengths to our department.
