  1. I have an interviews for Wash U coming up. Can you please tell me what format the interviews were in? How did they go, in general, and what types of questions they asked? Were they interrogative or conversational... etc.
  2. Your mentor is absolutely correct for several reasons: For 1, having options is a good thing. Secondly, many times you don't know what you want or don't want until you see and experience it. Harvard may be your first choice but the other programs may offer something (which you may find out through the interview process) that you did not anticipate. Always good to explore the options you have before making a commitment. Oh, and Congrats on getting into Harvard! Quite an accomplishment.
  3. Yes, there have been invites that have gone out for all of these schools. However, it depends on the program and/or track that he applied to. Some of them are still in the process of sending invites, some haven't yet, and some may be silent rejections. If he hasn't heard anything back - well that say no news is good news. If it gets into February and he still has yet to hear anything, its likely a silent rejection.
  4. Nope. And at this point, I've moved on. It's probably either a waitlist or a silent rejection. I don't have the mental or emotional energy to continue to expend on wondering and stressing over whether or not I have been invited to the institutions I have yet to hear from. I am very grateful for the interview opportunities I have gotten, and I will be using my energy and thought processes to prepare for those interviews I have coming up soon. If I do end up getting an invite from Yale BBS BQBS or the others, I will cross that bridge if I come to it. For right now, I'm gonna assume that those ar
  5. Question for those who received interview invitations to UW-Madison's MDTP Program: Did you all receive an email from them containing a link to a document that lists the profiles of all of the invitees? This is kind of weird as I can't figure out if it was an accident or intentional. Each profile contains the Name, Undergrad/ Graduate school info, email address, research interest, Faculty interests, personal interests and Photo of all invitees. If you received it, what do you make of it?
  6. Keep your head up my friend. If it turns out you don't get admission this year, try again next year. I read a few stories on this site where people got no invites last year but got some this year. If you don't get admission this year, here's some advice for next year: 1) Apply to some "safety" schools. Looking at the list of schools you applied to, these are top tier schools. That means that the competition for these schools is fierce. Do to a limited amount of space, a great many of greatly qualified applicants like yourself won't get in because there simply isn't enough room. By applying
  7. Gonna hold out hope until the end of business this coming Friday (01/14/2022). If I haven't heard anything by then, I'm just gonna move on.
  8. Dang it. I applied to Stanford's Cancer Biology Home program and haven't heard anything. Probably a silent rejection at this point then?
  9. Out of curiosity, of these two institutions, which one are you leaning toward as your favorite and why?
  10. Can you link to the results page. I see a lot of people talking about it but I can't seem to find it.
  11. I'm also waiting... Have yet to hear anything from Yale BQBS. Will update once I know something.
  12. Just wanted to chime in and wish everyone a happy holidays! May all of you get the gift that you are really hoping for...
