    Ask questions about the PhD application process!

    Depends on the university. For two I applied to, the SoP was more about your educational and research background, while the Personal Statement was more about you, your struggles, and what you personally bring to the university.

    PHD Applicants: Fall 2019

    It might depend on the department? I applied for EHS and while they don't normally interview, I was in the area so they invited me for an impromptu interview. Normally there is just an admittance day in mid March.

    PHD Applicants: Fall 2019

    Two years ago I heard back from them mid February, but I think most go out late February or early March.
  4. Adding onto this, if you need to use SAS, and are not working with sensitive data, you can use SAS Studio for free online with an edu email: https://odamid.oda.sas.com/SASStudio/
  5. I realized I'm starting to hit my limit of 500kb of attachments and I was curious if there was a way to delete old ones?
  6. I like the 1/3 withdrawal. Keep 'em guessing.
  7. Ann Arbor is smaller, but there are quite a few internship opportunities. There are also several pots of money available to do internships outside of the country if you're interested in that.

    Have you already talked to PIs at both places? If not, this is a much harder decision. You may want to look at things such as program statistics (completion, funding, placement after graduation, etc.): https://secure.rackham.umich.edu/academic_information/program_statistics/ Nut sure where to find these for NYU, but it's something you could start searching for.

    Unless you are absolutely sure your mind won't be changed (and know for sure you are accepted), I would recommend still going on the other interviews. I thought I knew where I wanted to go after the first interview, but things changed as I went on the others. It wasn't until I had a week after my last interview when I had a good idea of what program would work best for me. Once you have confirmed an acceptance, absolutely withdraw from other programs.

    You can always try, but it might be a little tricky. For my department, the interview recruits (from PIBS) were assigned to hosts for each weekend last Thursday. Depending what your 1st/2nd choice departments are may dictate how flexible this is, but it might still really be up to PIBS in the end.

    It might depend on the institution. Mine got back to me today and said we will be payed.

    It depends on the school, and sometimes the program. For example, I was told during interviews for Emory PBEE that they don't accept more people if others don't accept. One year they had only 1 person accept, so they were a cohort of 1. I got to talk to him and he said the previous cohort ended up adopting him in a sense.
  13. Not many people applying to medical school post here. You will likely get a lot more feedback here: https://forums.studentdoctor.net/

    It would be useful for creating a list of interview dates. 2016 had one like that, which was useful for coordinating which interview dates to pick. Not all the interview dates that showed up in the thread also showed up in the results.
