  1. "Let's just TALK about it..." Decision Edition

    Ahhh, I lived in Cincinnati for a good part of my life and I'd take Wisconsin in a heartbeat. It looks like you thought everything through carefully so I'm sure it was the right choice! I also feel bad for other schools. My flight to Arizona costs so much! I could fly to Europe for that price.
  2. "Let's just TALK about it..." Decision Edition

    I was rejected from both of my top choices in terms of research fit and left with two schools that only had one professor I was interested in. I feel bad for being disgruntled because they are both good schools (otherwise I wouldn't have applied haha). I hope visit weekends change my mind in terms of what research is actually going on and the flexibility and freedom of doing what interests you, otherwise I'm looking at staying at my job which I absolutely love (and pays much better haha). I have my first visit coming up this weekend which is rather exciting!
  3. Fall 2018 Cycle

    Rejections out for UW This means I was rejected from both of my top choices in terms of research fit and left with two schools that only had one professor I was interested in. I hope visit weekends change my mind, otherwise I'm looking at staying at my job which I absolutely love (and pays much better haha). Sigh. I wish more schools did interviews. I do so well in person but always horrible when it comes to writing.
  4. Fall 2018 Admission

    As a hard science person, all my deadlines were Dec 1st as well. That's probably why we hear back earlier. It's also rough because if you haven't heard by this point in time, your chances are almost null (especially when you see it graphed out as in that other thread).
  5. Visit Weekend Interviews with Profs

    Great, thank you! That clarifies things!
  6. I was just wondering what an interview with a professor during visit weekend comprises of. Should I prepare a list of questions and how broad of a range of topics can I ask about? I assume this is my chance to learn more about them, their research, and their lab.

    Just got my rejection for UMich. Pretty bummed as it was my top choice with an excellent research fit. It was a nice email though.
  8. Wow, this is great! Nice work! Also a tad disheartening haha.
  9. Deferring for work

    I was wondering this as well for financial reasons. Thanks for the helpful info.

    Just got my second acceptance via phone call. I hate talking on the phone so it was super awkward ahaha. But now I'm riding the acceptance high while at work! *grinning like a fool*
  11. Let’s just TALK about it...

    I submitted my apps early/mid November and heard back from a school at the beginning of January before radio silence. It makes it so much worse to have them spread out ahhhh. At least nothing beats the waiting game of the JET Program. Applications were due in November and you heard back in April. I keep reminding myself of this XD
  12. Fall 2018 Admission

    I want to go into bioanalytical specifically with LC-MS in the biotech environment. I've been out of school for six years now so it's narrowed down my view haha.
  13. Fall 2018 Admission

    Congrats! That's a program I looked at myself since my undergrad is in Forensic Chem, before I decided to go a different direction.
