On behalf of the EECS Graduate Committee and the staff in the Graduate Office -- we regret to notify you that we could not bring a favorable decision regarding your application to the MS program with the EECS Department.
We apologize for the extreme delay that you have experienced and we thank you for your patience. The fact is that we have received over 1300 applicants -- and the vast majority of them, just like yourself, were very talented and qualified individuals. We operate under constraints and try our best to match the applicants with the most-likely best adviser from the very start -- a process which, in addition to being time-consuming itself, requires us to proceed in batches.
Often, it is some minor detail that has caught reviewers/evaluators eye -- maybe part of the statement of purpose being more (vs. less focused), maybe a bit of a comparative-scores on certain exams/subjects, maybe a better match of the background and interests -- which is why we have put the instructions on our Graduate Admissions webpage (along with the FAQ link). We hope that this will help you in your future applications, regardless of their targeted context.
We wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
