    @hfj23 They did get the approval to reduce out of state tuition by $20,000 total. The confirmed that the LEND track was removed because they couldn't say with 100% confidence that they would be able to provide the second year funding. Other than that I don't think there was any other financial info.

    Michigan sent out an email that contained financial information and also if they would rank us. It would be cool if all programs could let us know..

    It is a lot, but they seemed pretty confident would be approved. Since it's -$5000/semester it would be -$10,000 for the first year.

    For out of state students Ohio State is around $95k. They're trying to reduce the out of state tuition but it's not officially through yet.

    If you are interested in sharing your responses, please submit below!
    I have left the responses able to edit as I know not all interviews have finished, so if you want to fill out now based on how you feel, you can always go back and edit after you've completed interviews. I will share the results once there are a decent amount of responses. 
    Please be honest, but no trash talking programs (or individuals within the program!), I will delete those responses. It is completely anonymous though!

    Just got offered an interview at Arizona! They are only interviewing Arizona residents until after Match. At which point, they’ll offer additional interviews. 
    I’m so excited!

    From what I've seen online, they haven't yet applied for accreditation and therefore cannot take students. They have information up and an article said they had plans to take their first class for Fall 2018, but they aren't active and haven't seen submitted to the board to get accreditation. Their timeline is likely pushed back for one reason or another.

    @Lauren423 I wouldn't agree with the above statement at all.  I'm 22 and finishing up my degree in undergrad right now, graduating in May.  I applied to 8 programs and received 7 interviews.  Note that I've only had 3/7 interviews thus far, but there's been several other interviewees finishing their degree as well at my interviews.  And I've been told by interviewers that I'm an extremely competitive applicant this cycle.  I don't think age matters at all.  If you have the experience and the passion for the field, you are just as qualified as someone who took some years off.

    I know someone asked about graduate scholarships/funding earlier and Northwestern had this database on their site so I thought it might be helpful! A lot of them require you to be going into a specific field though /:

    Honestly it's really hard to accurately calculate probabilities once you've reached the interview stage. There are so many subjective measures that can affect how a program ranks you. Plus with the limited number of programs spots, and the overlap in applicant pools between some schools, your chance of getting into school A isn't independent from getting into school B. Getting "rejected" by school A after the interview stage might increase your chance of getting into school B, since you're no longer competing w/that student for school B.

    My Gene Counsel just posted a blog post with GC grad school interview advice from over 20 GCs. I found it to be helpful in preparing for my interviews. The most helpful tip for me, going in with 5 things you want to cover in your interview, kind of like a to-do list. It has helped me talk about a variety of experiences in my answers.

    I also interviewed a Sarah Lawrence interviewer (Eleanor Griffith) on her insight into the application process and the interviews. It's a podcast so you can listen on iTunes (DNA Today) or on the website below.

    At the same time, if you were from the midwest and travelled all the way to the west coast for an interview wouldn't it show that their offer meant a lot? I think the fact that we take time off work/school and spend money to go to these interviews already shows that they mean a lot! If I'm not at least 80% interested, I know I won't take off time and spend money to go.

    I agree with you all, I feel like it's not appropriate to ask. And I do worry they think I'm not as serious about their school, compared to others who are interviewing at a couple. In my interviews so far they have written down the names of the schools I am interviewing at. So in future interviews, my plan is to say the general area of the northeast and leave out names if I can get away with it. Definitely going to bring this up as a future GC student and say that it's an inappropriate question.

    I actually have seen some of them write the number down though... i don't disclose the schools and if they ask i just say in the midwest, but i've even been prompted to name the schools before. I know it's probably not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but i'm just not a fan of those questions

    One question i've gotten at some interviews is how many interview invites i've gotten overall. The question makes me weary, because 1) I don't want schools to think i'm all over the place and just applied to a bunch of places at random and 2) i'm anxious about them having preference for students who only applied to a couple schools and got 1 or 2 interviews. I know I'm probably overthinking this but does anyone have any idea what the purpose of that question is? I always make sure to follow it up by talking about why I applied to their particular program and how much i love it, but i personally just don't like being asked about how many invites i have..anyone else have this experience?

    I got a telephonic interview offer from Indiana University a few hours ago. I guess they sent it out now after finishing most of their in-person interviews. So if any of you are international applicants/applicants who cannot interview in-person - there is definitely still a chance! And maybe otherwise too! Point is don't give up on IU even if you haven't heard anything yet.

    i don't think many people apply casually..applications are expensive as is the GRE so i'm assuming that almost everyone who applies at least looks at program websites and sees that most schools only accept around 8-12 students/year. I feel like most people posting on here are just looking for a community of people we can relate to, because at least in my case i don't have any close friends or colleagues who are also applying for this program and i'm sure this is quite common. 
    So in my opinion, it's hard to gauge how qualified people are based on whether or not they're posting on this forum. At the end of the day, qualified or not, many of us are just trying to connect with others and help each other out  Good luck to your person who is applying! I also know many people accepted into programs who only got one interview so # of invites doesn't mean much at the end of the day, just how well you connect with the interviewers at those interviews.
