    Fall 2018 Cycle

    I got an email from a POI last week, and these are the dates he told me: 3/2 for inorganic and energy, 3/9 for organic, and 3/16 for organic and chem bio. He said you can attend any weekend, but they’re loosely organized by area of interest. I haven’t received any official info about the visit weekends or financial stuff either, but I imagine it will come soon now that the Graduate Division has sent out official acceptances.
