  1. Given the current NIH funding cutting and that UCSF relies heavily on NIH's money, Princeton may be a better choice
  2. just wondering if anyone heard back from MIT microbiology?
  3. I got mine last week too! Now waiting on the physical package. Thanks!
  4. I don't agree with your last point. Though in the US most bio professors can't admit you directly, they can certainly give you an interview opportunity if they are really interested in you.
  5. For the housing part, MIT does... MIT's 1b1b apartment is ~$400 cheaper than Harvard's....
  6. Electronic one saying decision is available on the portal. and the online mail contains a link to confirm attending and says a package has been mailed. Just confirmed too
  7. I got mine this morning! thanks!
  8. thanks! i think yes, you should get an offer from GSAS for both of your program. The offer letter from my program said I should get the official one from GSAS in the next few days and I'm a little impatient now...
  9. I'm wondering has anyone received the official admission letter from Harvard GSAS, no matter what program you are in? I want to turn down offers from other places, but don't feel safe enough without the official one from Harvard...
  10. Yale BBSB admission. will turn down
  11. Congrats! Saw an admission to Harvard Systems biology in result search and now I'm in panic
  12. for MIT Microbiology interviewees, have you received the detailed schedule yet? Thanks
