  1. I just accepted the offer to Scripps! See you in La Jolla!
  2. Oh congratulations! Fellow waitlisted applicant here but I guess I won't end up in WCGS for PhD.... Edit: Do you mind sharing which program you were WLed at?
  3. Same for me. People still got in on April 14th, so good luck!
  4. Actually kinda in the same situation here: deciding between Scripps and Northwestern while also trying to see if I can miraculously get off waitlist at Weill Cornell. But after I visited both places and contacted PIs and students in the labs I found interesting, I am more inclined to Scripps since first: their research are very well aligned with my interests and my career goal of translational research. TBH I was under the impression that they do NOT have as much translational research going on as Northwestern School of Medicine since they are not affiliated with any hospitals. But some labs h
  5. Really torn between these two programs and really need some help if anyone is interested in sharing their opinions. Honestly did not expect to be making a decision between these two very different programs (maybe bc I haven't decided what exact direction I wanna go) Research-wise, both have pretty good labs that are doing the type of research I’m interested in, particularly gene and transcriptional regulations in the context of cancer and development biology. The distinction between them is the emphasis: northwestern has a lot more connections to clinical and translational research and

  7. I attended the second one. So we haven't met during the recruitment lol.
  8. I don't see there's as many waitlist posts on gradcafe for the past couple years so maybe this year is a bit different? Anyway can only wish for the best. Good luck to both of us!
  9. I am also waiting for them...I emailed them and they can only say “as soon as possible” which I take as later March or early April.
  10. Based on my binge reading of other WL posts on Gradcafe and Reddit, it could be late March or even till April 15th. I reached out to the program and they only said they will update us "as soon as possible" so be prepared for some last minute notification if you are willing to wait for those programs.
  11. Oh wow that's great! And yes CA campus is the one I am considering to accept. Just need to double check with some profs with regard to the research interest fit before I can make up my mind. BTW which interview week did you attend?
  12. Hi I am also considering accepting an offer from Scripps. I am actually a bio major working on cancer biology and it's so interesting since I actually think the research at Scripps is very chem oriented in contrast to what the chemists think on this forum. But I would say Scripps is highly regarded by many chem bio people I have encountered during the interview days and their research on HIV vaccines are everywhere. If you check out the bio forum you might find some people with a background in immunology/neurosciences/chembio are also applying there.
