  1. I hope not since I'm interviewing there in two weeks!!!
  2. Hi folks! Hope you're doing swell. For those of you who have already been to an interview weekend -- do you have any advice to quell my nerves? I'm heading to UWashington MCB this weekend and am a bundle of energy. Thanks in advance!
  3. I got an email interview invite from the specific umbrella program director (Stem Cell/Regen Medicine) before the New Year and he explicitly said, and I quote: "The 14 Home Program Admissions Committees all operate on their own timelines, so your friends and coworkers may or may not have heard from another Biosciences Program. Please understand that "no news does not mean bad news", as many Programs do not complete their admission process until the 2nd week of January. So, please keep this in mind when sharing your good news with others."
  4. Definitely something I'm coping with. But I feel most comfortable in menswear so goshdarnit that's what I'll be sporting. I'm fairly confident that the schools I'll be visiting are accepting of queer diversity, but we'll just have to see.
  5. Sorry if I missed something but did Stanford Biosciences already send invites out?!?
  6. Ok folks, I'm in a very lucky position, but I would love some help: I need to figure out whether to interview at the Albert Einstein program or at UW MCB. I know they're immensely different, but would love to hear some other people's opinions. Thanks in advance!
  7. Got an email tonight from the UCSF Dev/Stem Cell Program

  9. Anxiety seems to be the uniting sentiment of everybody on here lol. At least my finals are over now so I can relax about that. Definitely post if you hear anything! Sending happy thoughts.
  10. Anyone on here other than me who applied to the Developmental/Stem Cell Bio program at UCSF?
  11. Didn't get a Harvard email today, but I just got a call from UC San Diego, so I'd call it a good day Been thinking a lot recently about my undergrad application process; I don't know about you guys, but things ended up very far from what I expected at the outset and things have been more than okay. Just a thought to keep in mind.
