    UCSF vs. MIT

    Thanks for the advice and congrats on your decision! For me, I feel like I want the answer to be MIT, but not for any reason I can particularly understand or voice. And when I think rationally, I can come up with a bunch of reasons why UCSF might be better. I just don't want to make a decision for the wrong reasons, but then again time is running out so I'll have to do something soon.

    Help (PLEASE)! Should I go to UCSF or MIT? I'm from the Bay Area and would like to experience living somewhere else, but I'm also worried that being away from my family for 6 years would be so difficult. I am interested in a similar number of faculty at both places, but felt more comfortable overall (with faculty and students) at SF. I think it's probably because of this complex that I'm simply not good enough to go to MIT, even though I know UCSF is of very similar caliber. UCSF would probably be a safer option for me, but I can't decide if that's a good or bad thing. Any advice would be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated.

    Is it customary that you send thank-you emails to all of your interviewers? Or just those whose work you were particularly interested in, etc.?

    What kind of attire is appropriate when schools say "you don't need formal clothes for interviews" or "wear what you will feel comfortable in"?

    I received an open house invitation via email on January 7th. Not sure if they went out all at once, though!

    Thanks for letting me know! Did you respond to the original email to accept the invitation? It seemed unclear whether they wanted a response or if we were supposed to wait for the additional information first.

    How long did it take for people to hear back from UNC CH about travel arrangements after submitting the W9 form?
