  1. Also have heard from Berkeley-- they were my #1 of the places I got interviews, so I'm almost definitely going there. Still will be checking out Boston U though.
  2. Anyone heading to Berkeley tomorrow?
  3. Yes, that was me that posted-- I don't know if they're done giving out invites, but I asked my interviewer how competitive it was and he said that ~30 people would be invited to interview at the BU campus and about 20 would be accepted. These numbers seemed odd to me since he said that the class size was about 15. That would mean that ~75% of accepted people actually enroll, which seems very high (isn't it ~50% for MIT or something?).
  4. I got this email from BU a few days ago but haven't heard anything yet about the phone interview:
  5. Phone interview with BU Comp Neuro!
  6. @RyanCho They gave us two 45-min faculty choice interviews and three 30-min interviews with admissions committee members. Some of your chosen faculty may be on the admissions committee though, so you may end up talking to than two of the seven people on your list. I ended up with my #1, #3, and #4-- the other adcom members I'm talking to were not on my list.
  7. Yeah, my faculty choice interviewers are Joel Mainland and Yale Cohen. I read an article on interviews a few weeks ago and thought I remembered that they were usually 20 minutes each-- these 45 min interviews seem long. My name is Sean by the way. See you tomorrow!
  8. My flight gets in about 4:30, so I expect to get to the hotel at 5:30 or so. Will you be attending the dinner?
  9. Anyone else heading to Penn this Thursday (1/17)?
  10. I fly like paper Get high like planes WUSTL rejections are here And they kick me in the balls
  11. I got an invite from them pretty early and they listed both dates (1/18 and 2/8). When I was arranging things they wanted me to do the second weekend, so I assume you only heard about the second because the first one filled up. On another note, hooray for my first official rejection! UCSF
  12. I applied to computational tracks. You can see in my sig where I've heard from.
  13. Welcome ak1921. That's an impressive interview record there! I don't think anyone's heard from the 5 schools you haven't heard from yet, but judging from the fact that you nailed interviews at MIT and Harvard, I think your chances are high.
  14. @HS2013: Congratualtions! What are your stats? I am anxiously awaiting an email now, but I'm not too optimistic
  15. @meow123: are you applying to neuroscience programs? That would be interesting if you were applying with some kind of education focus (which is what it says in your profile sidebar. As for me, I didn't apply there.
