    Thanks! Good luck to us both! I'm waiting for the cognitive neuroscience track but I think they probably haven't make any decision yet.

    I sure hope so! Someone in my interview asked when we should hear back and they said the adcom starts meeting this week.

    Does anyone know how competitive interviews will be this year?
    I've received 10 invites so far, but decided to decline three offers because I'm still waiting to hear back from a few other programs and juggling a full-time job.
    Do I have a chance with seven interviews? Starting to freak out 🤪

    It seems like a lot of people on here just searched "US News and Report top Neuroscience PhDs" and applied to the first ten schools they saw 😆 very few people get into these programs, I would suggest applying to some lesser known schools that still have great research programs as well!

    This may be controversial: I don't think that it's worth investing your heart and soul into the Ivies or the UC's. For domestic & international students alike, it's a game of 3D chess to determine who they call to interview. More often than not, it's domestic students with connections and/or legacy. I feel for international students because they are going through rings of fire due to our current administration and the lack of available spots in the Ph.D pipeline throughout the U.S. Going to lesser known and/or top 50 programs, doing a killer job, then kicking ass in your postdoc may be the most secure route for now. I know that this is a path that non-traditional domestic students consider since we're also in a difficult position here when competing against your stereotypical "strong" applicants. Don't lose the faith and keep pushing for your dreams. It's going to happen one way or another. ❤️

    Hey, I got a UCSF rejection today. This is what the email said: There has been a change in the status of your application to the Neuroscience PhD graduate program at UCSF.
    Then it prompted me to check the portal. On the portal, it said rejected. So I think they are entering it in the portal individually which sends emails to applicants automatically.
    Hope it helps!

    I received an interview invite from WashU DBBS Neuro on December 18th. They have 2 interview weekends so they're probably still sending out invites?

    Man...really thought more interview invites would've gone out today! Seems like it was another slow day at least for the ones I applied to.

    It seems from previous threads that rejection emails are sent later than interview invitations by a week or more. But after stalking this site it looks like a lot of schools start to send out invites this week! Crossing my fingers I hear something by Friday or the weekend will be a painful wait 😩.

    Did anybody who is an international applicant with or without a US degree, get an interview yet? I am trying to figure out if the interviews are sent for domestic and international applicants at the same time.

    Wishing you, and all of us luck! Hate the waiting game, especially being stuck inside because of COVID. But, hopefully some of us hear back around Christmas time for interviews 🤩

    I've already started obsessively checking the websites even though I know they will email me and it is too early.

    I'm a current PhD student at an R1 and I'm just going to head this off before someone else does (it's going to come out very soon) but most programs this year are looking at huge increases in the number of applicants. I was in a friend's defense and the faculty at one Ivy were saying they saw double the number of applicants (possibly an exaggeration) as last year. You might hear this too. DO NOT PANIC. I have also chatted with professors in my department and schools saw this same thing happen in the cycle during the Great Recession and to paraphrase them, "the numbers went way up but the competitiveness stayed the same". In other words, a lot of people right now are applying on a whim in their senior years because the job market seems so bleak but this isn't necessarily more competition since most/all of you have been prepping to go to grad school for a few years already. Individuals who are deciding to apply now because of these circumstances can't make up for the years of research they haven't put in (and presumably you have).

    I'm an international student and I applied to around 20 programs. So anxious.
