  1. I wouldn't go looking for informal interviews either, I don't think it counts for much and looks to be a waste of time imo. Maybe explicitly asking for a zoom chat might prove beneficial, as I don't think they'll willingly offer that up unless you ask.

  3. It's pretty weird, guess their cohort in 2022 might be bigger than usual.
  4. Its worth asking your PI what their plans are for data collection, and their predictions on when it might resume. They only know as much as they've been told by higher admin, so estimates may be variable, but nothing wrong with asking.
  5. The above two replies from faculty seem kind of unsportsmanlike in light of waived requirements. Not really fair for programs to say "its optional" but if you don't submit then it implies you have something to hide/coverup, even in light of good stats marks/etc. Oh well, guess faculty are entitled to weigh the GRE however they like.
  6. +1 on this. Didn't get in, but I wasted so much time coming up with the ~perfect~ email to send POIs and I cringe now bc 1.) they were way too long, 2.) weren't worth the often copy-pasted or very brief responses I got and 3.) didn't count for anything--POIs I didn't email interviewed me and POIs who I had pleasant back and forth with didn't interview me. I admittedly wasn't too strong a candidate back then, so maybe thats why (lol). Also, it's fun to get responses from people you admire a lot, which was validating for me at the time, but it definitely doesn't count for much (if at all) in the
  7. Thinking of applying to law this cycle too. Anyone else considering that as a backup?
  8. I'm also kinda dreading this cycle, especially as a Canadian applying to American schools. Second time applying (almost my third but decided to work that cycle instead) and it'll be my last time. My first attempt was in 2018/2019--feels like EEEONS ago lol. Sending everyone good vibes!!
  9. Preparing early is a good idea, but schools don't review apps until they're all submitted, so submitting early doesn't really help (though 2 years ago some folks got interviews before apps were due, but thats rare).
  10. If im not mistaken, they had only 1/2 faculty admitting clinical students last year too.
  11. Taking its a matter of time now 'till everyone jumps ship...I think that I will not end up re-writing now, and focus on research instead.
