  1. 2018 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results

    I got mine last week too! Now waiting on the physical package. Thanks!
  13. Ask questions about the PhD application process!

    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.
  14. MIT vs. GSK

    For the housing part, MIT does... MIT's 1b1b apartment is ~$400 cheaper than Harvard's....
