    Hey @ClayR, so I was initially sent an invitation for a skype interview (international applicant here) from Pitt for CPCB. The interview went really well (it was with the founder of the program surprisingly, who I had also mentioned in my SOP). Soon after that (literally hours later) I received another email from the Pitt coordinator stating that two other profs (who I had also mentioned in my SOP) would be interested in contacting me for a skype interview (each). I have already scheduled one of them this week. I was wondering if being "skype interviewed" by multiple profs is just a standard part of the application process and/or if there's something I can take back from this? Do you have any idea? CPCB is my first choice so I'm really excited (and kinda nervous) about all this! Thanks! I've had prior skype interviews for the CBB program in USC and generic rejections from pretty much everywhere else.

    As far as I know, the program only conducts in-person interviews for students within North America. So, if you are outside NA, I would take it as a good sign. However, if you are from NA, I really can’t say with certainty, but I’d be inclined to say it’s not a good sign, as all in-person interview offers have been proffered to my knowledge.

    My personal opinion is that you should reach out to them with any updates. I think it's very likely that you won't be accepted if you haven't heard anything yet, but it's worth some kind of shot. I recently reached out to a handful of schools with a new publication, so I am following my own advice :)

    My PI recommended the same. Best of luck! Currently at my first interview :D

    I got an email from Princeton this afternoon for interview invitation. Interviews will be held on Friday, February 8th, with arrival on Thursday the 7th and departure on the 9th.

    It's probably difficult for you to tell, but did you get the sense that your invite was a mass email, or alternatively that they were still working their way down the list? Based on the results page, it seems like relatively few people have heard back so far. Is your name near the beginning of the alphabet? 

     

    I emailed the program administrator to ask if invites are still going out, will post response when I get it...

    Hey all,

    Thought it would be nice to have a thread for comp bio interviews/admissions apart from the general bio thread. 

      

    Programs I’m waiting to hear from:

    Harvard SysBio

    Princeton QCB

    Tri-I CBM

    CPCB (won’t be announced till January, I did an NSF fellowship at Pitt this summer so I have the inside scoop on this one)

    Caltech SysBio

    UCSD BISB

    Baylor QCB

     

    Let’s keep each other updated, and good luck to y’all!
