  1. If anyone is waiting on Hopkins Human Genetics, I just got an interview invite that I declined. Hopefully it goes to someone who is super excited about this program! Also got my first acceptance today and it made all the application stress and ugly-crying on my bf's shoulder worth it
  2. I came across this article on assessing the culture of a potential research group that you might find useful. https://tenureshewrote.wordpress.com/2015/02/16/prospective-students-and-lab-culture/ In particular, I think that asking current members whether they're happy in the group/program/etc. or not can be really revealing. I ended up not applying to one program after I asked this of a recent graduate who had to take a deep breath before replying with an unenthusiastic, "yeah...it's a really great program".
  3. I did get an email from BCM last week from Molecular & Human Genetics (IMBS was my 2nd choice program, incidentally). I wouldn't lose hope on BCM just yet... I had my application in by the priority deadline (December 1st) instead of waiting for the final January 1st deadline, which may be why I heard from the relatively early? And IMBS may have a later review schedule than M&HG anyway. Have you checked the BCM application portal? They tell you if your application is currently active in your 1st or 2nd choice program. If yours still says IMBS as your "active" program, they're probably
  4. No worries, it's Epidemiology & Human Genetics!
  5. I received an invite from Duke UPGG and at least one other person in this thread received one before me. I don't know at all whether they sent them all out early or if they're still sending invites out though! The weekends are February 4-6 or February 18-20 for UPGG. I applied to UNC BBSP too and haven't heard anything from them either. I think the general consensus is that they might send out more invites in January? Not really sure. I'm super excited to have gotten as many interview invites as I have, and I'm kind of okay with not having heard back from the more competitive progra
  6. Thought I'd share this really great resource for preparing for interviews made by the NIH's Office of Intramural Training and Education. I'm 99.9% sure it is accessible outside the NIH campus and that the link below works, but if not, please let me know!

  7. I know someone who received an interview from Hopkins' Human Genetics program super late in the game last year (she had to turn it down due to conflicting interviews!), so probably don't freak out about that one yet!
  8. Congrats! I've heard really great things about the CMM program! I'm hoping to hear from them too, but no luck yet. What dates are their interviews?
  9. Good luck! I know I have been/will continue to update the results page as soon as I hear anything... I understand the desperate need for more data during this process!!!
