    my top 4 are berkeley, UW, UMich, and Brown atm, and I'm waiting on Davis and UT Austin. i've never been to any of those places except Brown. i'm having a really difficult time deciding since they all seem to have their strengths;
    - berkeley has the best reputation for EEB (imo) and a good mix of people working on systems i'm interested in and theoretical topics i'm interested in but also has the worst stipend to cost of living ratio. also, i'm not super psyched about rotations since i more or less know what topic i want to pursue and want to start cranking out publications asap.
    - UW has a ridiculous reputation for bioinformatics but everything seems really anthropocentric, more so than Berkeley even. on the other hand, only 2 quarters of GSI, decent stipend and benefits, a dedicated building and rising stars in pop gen. also does rotations though.
    -  UMich has an advisor i'm really enthusiastic about, plus a lot of other faculty that would work perfectly as committee members; they also have their center for complex systems which has an awesome course selection. but they only guarantee 4 semesters of RA/fellowship support; the other 6 semesters are guaranteed GSI support only. i'm not good at task switching so i think this would be bad for my research productivity.
    - Brown also has a really cool advisor whose project I can probably jump into right away, basically no course requirements, only 2 semesters of GSI, and by far the best stipend to cost of living ratio. on the other hand, it's a comparatively small department with few other people working in my areas of interest.

    Yes, I just checked unfortunately I got rejected to UCSF. I did just find out I got into Yale though!! UCSF and Yale were my top choices so I am really happy!!

    Mine was an interviewer, as well, but it sounds like these are coming on different days/times. Fingers crossed for you!!

    So sorry I am just seeing this haha! Although I was so fortunate to receive these invitations, I have decided to hone in on a smaller list so that I can also focus on schoolwork this semester: UPenn GCB, Harvard BBS, UCSF BMI, Princeton QCB, Berkeley CCB, and UChicago GGSB. I'm trying my best to keep an open mind and not pick favorites until after I've gone to the events, but I would be incredibly excited about the opportunity to attend any one of them!😊 Thanks for asking!

    Thanks for answering my question! Those are great schools/programs. 
    If you don't mind, could you please share your final decision as well? I'm curious to know ppl with many great options like you choosing which programs.
