  1. Has anyone else applied to USC’s Population, Health and Place program and heard back yet? I emailed Graduate Admissions to confirm they received a foreign transcript and they said they were still reviewing my application, but I know they’ve started sending acceptances. I’m trying to decipher whether that means they’re sending decisions as they review applications or whether I should be expecting an interview and/or rejection.
  2. Haven't heard from Columbia either-- from looking at past cycles, they might be sending invitation invites by the end of this week?
  3. When I emailed the Academic Program Director, he said that they would be reviewing apps in December and January, and notifying people around mid-February. It is my understanding that some students are applied without interviews, but others are asked to interview for further review.
  4. Same- it sucks, but I did visit Seattle and didn't feel the vibe of the city, so that's a thing that's kept me from being super bummed. At least the rest of the decisions seem to be trickling out!!
  5. Hi everyone! Lurking super hard, so wanted to jump in while waiting for results...
