    Weill Cornell Fall 2018

    I'm late to the party, but just committed for BCMB!

    2018 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results

    Hey everyone! I’ve officially joined the club of agonizing over decisions. I’m deciding between Oregon Health & Science University (Program in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences), University of Chicago (Development, Regeneration, and Stem Cell Biology), and Weill Cornell (BCMB). The research at OHSU is amazing and Portland seems like a great place to live, but their grad program doesn’t seem as well established as the others. I really liked that UChicago had a very strong grad community, but they have fewer faculty whose labs I would be interested in joining. I checked with faculty, and two of them probably aren’t even taking students next year. Weill Cornell has a lot of faculty I would love to work with, and they seem to have decent grad community (though not quite as strong as UChicago). My main concern with Weill Cornell is that it’s located in Manhattan, and because I’ve lived in California my whole life, everyone keeps warning me how different New York is from the west coast and they’ve all made me nervous that I wouldn’t like living there. I keep going in circles with this reasoning so if anyone could give me another perspective or a new angle of looking at this it would be much appreciated!

    Has anyone heard from Stanford Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine? I tried to contact the program but "Due to the high volume of applications we are processing, we are not able to respond to individual requests concerning application status"
