factanonverba Posted January 10, 2018 Share Posted January 10, 2018 Hi all, I would like to get some input from you guys. Basically I am invited to interview at both UNC BBSP and Scripps, and Scripps asked that I purchase my air ticket by the end of this week. However, I have yet to hear back from Stanford, whose interview period falls on the same dates as my tentative Scripps interview. Although I don't know if I will get an interview offer from Stanford at all, I don't want to give it up by purchasing my Scripps air ticket now. So I have three options: 1. Cancel UNC interview, move Scripps to the UNC date, wait for Stanford. 2. Keep UNC interview, cancel Scripps interview, wait for Stanford. 3. Keep both UNC and Scripps interviews and confirm air tickets. (Probably have to pay for the Scripps ticket if I get an offer from Stanford later.) I am personally in favor of #1 or #2. So my question is, which interview do you think is worth keeping, UNC or Scripps? I am interested in molecular biology and would like to do research on the molecular mechanisms/gene regulation/signaling/metabolism involved in tumorigenesis and metastasis. These both seem to be strong programs, Scripps has quite a strong focus on structural biology, which I am not particularly interested in. I will also go over all their respective faculty research in more detail, but would like to hear what you guys think. Thank you!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
