  1. Same here. Grateful for both recognitions.
  2. Thanks so much. I'm really, truly shocked.
  3. OMG. I won one too. I'm in shock. Never thought I'd get it. Was hoping for an honorable mention. I have a BS but haven't begun grad school yet. I'm a lab tech. E/E, VG/VG, VG/VG
  4. Woke up this morning to an email telling me I won the NSF GRF. I'm in shock. Never thought I'd get it. Was hoping for an honorable mention. Now I've got to decide where I'm going to grad school.
  5. OMG. I won the NSF GRF. How did that happen? I'm shocked. Great way to begin the weekend, that's for sure. Now I just have to decide where I'm going.
  6. Hoping a UCSF student responds to questions posted above! Thanks in advance.
  7. Got an acceptance email from JHU this afternoon! Psyched!
  8. Has anyone who interviewed at JHU heard back?
  9. I know UCSF doesn't guarantee housing but for a first-year, what's the likelihood of getting housing at Mission Bay? It's convenient to classes, so makes sense to try. Also, do most ppl who get mission bay housing opt to stay in it their second year, or move off campus? And final question, if you don't get on campus housing, what neighborhoods are best to look at for housing if your classes and labs are at Mission Bay? My criteria are closeness to mission campus, safety and cost. I won't have a car, so I'd like proximity to services like grocery store, too. Thanks for your response!
  10. Heard from Yale BBS today in an unofficial email. Was told official email will come early this upcoming week.
  11. Thanks. Hopefully we'll hear by the end of the day.
  12. Jan 26-27, the first session. Best of luck to you!
  13. I just got the official email for neuro, too.
  14. Has anyone who interviewed heard back from Yale?
  15. I've heard back from NYU (email from a prof, not the official acceptance email) but no one has posted on the results page yet.
