  1. Seeing a few posts about international students - feel free to reach out should you have any questions regarding applying in the US (either this cycle or next) 😊😊😊 Haven't heard back from JHU since my interview (International Health, Human Nutrition - anyone applied/heard back???), but I have accepted Harvard's admission offer and sent out emails informing the remaining schools of my decision. Wishing everyone waiting to hear back the very best!!!
  2. Interviewed with two POIs for JHU's International Health Program early January. Hoping you hear something soon! Good luck!
  3. ACCEPTED TO HARVARD PHS!!!! Crying...dying!!!!

Paranoia is getting the best of me and I need the official acceptance in hand to have this sink in!
  5. How likely is an official offer of admission if I've gotten an 'unofficial' acceptance email from the Department Chair stating that they've "made a recommendation of [my] application for admission to the University's Graduate School" and that they wanted to "congratulate [me] a bit early on my accomplishment. You will receive a formal financial offer in February. More to come soon." ????
  6. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! So exciting!! ??
  7. No, I didn't interview with them. My program and POI fall under the PiBS (PhD Program in Biological Science) umbrella in the Graduate Division of Medical Sciences. This program only invites candidates for on-campus interviews with faculty in the department.
  8. Thanks for the updates! This is the email I received from BU last week indicating that I'm waitlisted for an interview: "...We have now made our selection for our interviews. Unfortunately, your application was not chosen an on-site interview. However, we are keeping your application active. This indicates that your candidacy is still of interest to us and we are keeping it on high hold for the time being. In the meantime, please feel free to update us on your progress in your application to PhD programs other than BU. To be clear, your application is on high hold and has not been rejected. In the event we that have available student slots in our class after our initial interview and acceptance process, we may contact you to set up an interview..."
