  1. Hello! I have narrowed my list down to these two schools and I am trying to make the decision and would love an outside perspective! Wisconsin Madison: Pros: *Tons of labs that interest me, including a relatively famous PI who has shown interest in me *a location that really appeals to me (though I have never been) *good impression during visit days, people had good work life balance, the school seemed very supportive etc. Cons: *stipend seems a little low (even taking into account COL) especially because you have to pay student fees and health i
  2. E/VG VG/E E/E Awarded (Chemistry of Life Processes) I am currently doing postbac research and graduated college in Dec 2018. Small liberal arts college. 2 years research in undergrad with two papers (one first author, one second author) and a first author paper in preparation from my current job when I submitted.

  4. No worries! It was direct admit! I had spoken to some faculty as well as the admissions director during an open-house
  5. Hi Atom! Sorry, which school are you talking about here?
  6. I got a UW acceptance on Dec 19. Didn't apply to the others!
  7. Thank you! They told me in an email and then sent out an official acceptance letter with stipend details very soon after.
  8. @kenzithecatI received an acceptance to MIT yesterday via email! I think they must be sending them out slowly however so fingers crossed for you!
  9. @frozonecomFinished up my caltech interview! It ran at like exactly 10-12 minutes and was very basic. ie Tell me about your research, why caltech etc. Two interviewers who were super friendly. I feel like it went well. We'll see what comes next!
  10. @spaghettiosI got an interview to Caltech and I'm not an international student. I also was not aware that they were interviewing (they didn't seem to in years past?). It is a 10 min interview focused on my research and interest in Caltech with approximately 4 questions and mine is scheduled for next week. I can report back after.
  11. Update from me: Acceptances to UW-Madison, Yale, and University of Washington! I submitted basically everything by mid-November. At Yale and Madison I had spoken with PIs, but I did not contact anyone at University of Washington.
  12. Accepted to Wisconsin-Madison on Nov 22! Also a friend at UChicago involved with recruitment told me to expect to hear from them this week.
