  1. Best of luck to you ! I'll see how the rest of this cycle turns out for me, but I am doubtful I will be applying again.
  2. Thank you for the encouragement. My first reaction was to apply for another cycle if I got rejected this round, but then I realized not much about my application would change. If anything my application would be even weaker 1 or 2 years down the road as my career becomes more "corporate". I left my research job 1.5 years ago because of finances and from a graduate program perspective, I can't imagine this being looked at favorably no matter what my reason was. Being in NYC also doesn't help haha.
  3. I just got my rejection email from BU. I was waiting for it since I wasn't invited to prospective student day. So that's 4/8 rejections and 4/8 radio silence haha. I think I just wasted my money applying and don't think I'll be trying for another cycle. Before I applied, I struggled with whether I should apply at all. My career is going well otherwise and doing a PhD would just be more of a financial burden. Since PhD programs have the same hesitation about me, it's now more affirmative that I shouldn't pursue a PhD.
  4. Feels like I just wrote that myself. I also just got my rejection notification from them and I'm 3/3 on the rejections. Now just waiting on 5 more. I didn't have interviews anywhere though. I didn't realize my application was THAT weak...
  5. They told me they hoped to notify people by end of the month. Yes, I agree. March seems late considering we have to commit in April...
  6. I checked my spam and the portal since it seems like this has happened to quite a few people. My status still says "submitted" ahhh. The wait is agonizing!
  7. Anyone apply Pharmacoepi for UNC? It seems like decisions for the Epi department are starting to come out. I was told they'd be done notifying applicants by beginning of March.
  8. My decision was posted in MyPath for JHU (Epi). I did not get an e-mail notification. It seems like a lot of people's decisions are up. Rejected: Emory, JHU Heard nothing from: BU, Brown, UNC, Columbia, Berkeley, UCLA I'm definitely feeling disappointed with myself. I knew I wasn't the "perfect" applicant with the best numbers or publications, but I thought I would at least get a few interviews and 1 acceptance. It's looking I'm on the path for 8/8 rejections.
  9. Congratulations! Did you interview? I haven't heard anything from them since I applied, so I'm assuming it's a dragged out rejection :(.
  10. Did you get invited to their prospective student day? I didn't so I'm assuming they're just waiting until the end of the month to send my rejection notification.. bahhh.
  11. Pharmacoepidemiology. At JHU, I applied under "General & Methodology" track since pharmacoepi was under this.
