    2018 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results

    I'm interested in stem cell biology relating to neurodevelopment/degeneration/regeneration, so there's great work being done by multiple faculty members at both schools. But yes, I had ruled Yale out, just wanted to make sure that wasn't a completely stupid decision lol. I live in the midwest now, so I'm familiar with the culture (and weather) and whatnot, but I'll definitely let you know if I have any specific questions about the university or Ann Arbor or whatnot! Thanks so much!

    @strugglebus2k17 @BiomedicalPHD Thanks guys! I was assuming the same. Would it make any difference if I threw Yale in there? The caveat being that I really did not like New Haven and I didn't click as well with the faculty or the current students. Yale isn't THAT much better that it would outweigh those huge cons, is it?

    Quick opinion question! It's been tough, but I've narrowed it down to Michigan and UPenn (both for neuroscience). They each have their pros and cons that I'm still sorting through, but I was wondering what you guys think about the 'prestige' of the programs. At this level, does the Ivy League 'name' carry significantly more weight than the public midwestern school (even though UM's neuro program is exceptional)? Pretending that the faculty, students, funding, culture, etc was all exactly even, how much does the name of the school actually matter, and if it does, how different are these two?

    That's exactly what happened. Less than a day after our interview we all got a rejection email, followed a few hours later by a follow-up from the coordinator saying it was a mistake and they hadn't met or made any decisions yet. I know it wasn't their fault, but it was a huge mistake on their end if you ask me.

    Not sure about Rochester. A colleague of mine has already had her interview at Emory, so if they will be extending any more it would likely be soon and only a few. UNC already had their interviews too. I was rejected, but a friend of mine has also heard nothing (positive or negative). I received an interview invite for BU a few weeks ago and their only weekend is 2/25 so I would assume they're likely done. Not sure about Albert Einstein. Hope that helped a little?!

    Most places have been suggesting business casual. There were always a few people (guys and girls) in full suits, but it was no where near the majority. Don't think it's ever a bad thing (better to be over than under), but they did sometimes stand out. I wore blazer/dark jeans for one day, dress pants and dress blouse for interview day, and a casual dress with tights for another day. Obvi don't wear jeans on interview day (although that did happen), but "nice" jeans for any of the casual outings were totally fine. Most people wore jeans at least one of the days, and it looked a bit odd when people wore dress pants for things like apartment tours.

    I was. I have not heard anything. I see that they're calling, so maybe it's taking a while and/or they didn't work over the weekend. Let me know if you hear anything though!

    I got an interview invite from them (Neuroscience) last week, but have no idea if they are rolling or did them all at once. The interview is the last week in February though, so I would expect them to get them all out relatively soon if they haven't already!

    One of my coworkers submit by the early deadline and has heard nothing, another submit by the late deadline and got an interview, and I submit by the early one and just got a rejection yesterday so...seems like everything is up in the air at this point.

    Definitely don't think there's a 'too late' to send them (unless it's like a month later). I would guess that earlier is better, but later is far better than never (plus it's only Tuesday!) I sent them to each faculty I interviewed with, as well as the program coordinator and admissions head (or whoever ran the weekend, it varied by schools for me). But certainly, CERTAINLY, would still send them!

    I have been sending my emails the following day, or two days at the latest. Most of my interviews have been ending on a Saturday morning, and I've been sending thank you's Sunday night (before they get slammed with Monday morning emails). They usually respond and have always seemed pleased to receive a follow-up. I've just been saying thanks, not reiterating my interest or anything about myself (I think that might be too much, especially after a busy weekend of nothing but). Just thanking them for their time, support, and answering my questions. I'd definitely send them though!

    ^^ Similarly, does anybody know the post-interview acceptance rate of Yale (neuroscience)?

    Has anyone who went to Penn's NGG interview Jan 11-13 heard back from them yet?? They said they were meeting on Tuesday to discuss, and I realize they didn't say they would let us know ON Tuesday, but I'm anxious and curious!

    To anyone who got a rejection email from Columbia Neurobiology & Behavior today, was it a mass email or was it personalized and are rolling out over time? I'm wondering why I have not gotten one, but I also did not receive an email invite to interview? I was under the impression that they had sent out all the invites.
