Hello folks, I have applied to the Biomedical Engineering PhD program in Ohio State University. They had emailed me to expect decisions by Mid-March. I have heard that OSU is usually pretty much on time. But I haven't heard anything from them yet. I emailed then this week and did not get any reply. I cannot find any posts of any applicants having got interview calls. What does this mean? Does OSU send acceptances without interviews ? Other department decisions seems to be out but nothing from Biomedical Engineering. The website reads "pending". How do I interpret this ? The wait is freaking me out.
I'm currently planning to apply to graduate school this year, and I've realized that I am kind of lost about what kind of program I should apply to. If I wanted to eventually end up doing longevity research, what would be a good graduate program to enter? Should I go for a degree in Human Genetics? Biomed? Is one field easier to get into than the other, if I know my application won't be as competitive compared to others? Also, is a PhD necessary for biology-related fields? Is it okay to do a masters first to get a "taste" of the field, so to speak, before seeing if I want to commit to a PhD or maybe even try to apply for medical school?
