  1. Not sure about NYU but I'm also an international student and I would recommend that you opt for the express delivery service. My university told me that it has partnered with certain express services to provide me with reduced rates and I could avail those if I liked. I did and I got my i20 in 3 days. With normal post, my original offer letter (that I thankfully didn't need a hard copy of!) took more than 8 weeks to arrive.
  2. Congratulations to all of you! I've been lurking in the forum during the application season but I have now confirmed my first choice and I'll be attending the Developmental Biology program at Cincinnati Children's Hospital! I'm excited and nervous at the same time!
  3. Hello! I was wondering if anyone else was planning to attend University of Cincinnati this fall? I'll be joining the Molecular and Developmental Biology PhD program at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital. Really excited to meet fellow grad students!
