    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    Hello Fellow Genetics Nerds! I am collecting insight/advice from applicants who were matched with GC programs through a Google Form. This info will be shared in a blog post on DNApodcast.com, MyGeneCounsel.com and possibly another GC website (tbd). I think it would be great for us to pass along our knowledge and help future applicants as they prepare for the application process. Let me know if you have any questions. I would really appreciate your responses! Just click the form link below. https://goo.gl/forms/6fMPfJ7yXgcntmAd2

    Haha Haha yup! I'm so excited that you guys listen! Glad the shows are helpful, most episodes have a GC angle.

    I have been sending a thank you email to the program director for their time, what I liked about their program specifically and aspects of the interview day.

    Thanks! That's so cool you listen! I started a different podcast before this (about the Hunger Games series, lol total nerd here) and once I had a better handle on the tech side of things I started my genetics podcast. It's been so fun having different guests on!

    My Gene Counsel just posted a blog post with GC grad school interview advice from over 20 GCs. I found it to be helpful in preparing for my interviews. The most helpful tip for me, going in with 5 things you want to cover in your interview, kind of like a to-do list. It has helped me talk about a variety of experiences in my answers. http://www.mygenecounsel.com/blog-recent-posts/2018/2/26/advice-for-interviewingranking-genetic-counseling-grad-schools I also interviewed a Sarah Lawrence interviewer (Eleanor Griffith) on her insight into the application process and the interviews. It's a podcast so you can listen on iTunes (DNA Today) or on the website below. http://dnapodcast.com/episodes/2017/11/30/71

    I agree with you all, I feel like it's not appropriate to ask. And I do worry they think I'm not as serious about their school, compared to others who are interviewing at a couple. In my interviews so far they have written down the names of the schools I am interviewing at. So in future interviews, my plan is to say the general area of the northeast and leave out names if I can get away with it. Definitely going to bring this up as a future GC student and say that it's an inappropriate question.

    I heard back February 6th, but it seems like it's one of the schools inviting in waves.

    I applied for the dual program. But as someone said earlier it sounds like they are sending out multiple invitations. My email said the dates below were only a few of them, so definitely seems like they will invite more.

    Same! Did you send in your preferences for days/slots?

    Hey Everyone! This is my first post in the thread. I applied to 7 schools and so far have received interview invitations from 3 schools (Brandeis, Rutgers, Arcadia). Has anyone heard back from the others schools I applied to (Sarah Lawrence, U of Pitt, BU, Thomas Jefferson)?
