Recommended Posts

I am curious as well about Vanderbilt IGP. I have not seen anyone post results about the program but their website states they start reviewing every Monday starting December 1st?

Also, I applied to UNC and have not heard back. Not feeling to great after seeing two big round of interviews go out.

If you're an international student, you may be glad to know that most international applications had not been reviewed as of last week due to a problem receiving TOEFL scores from ETS. Notice that all interview calls posted here are from American students. I am hoping that international applicants will be called by Friday.

If we haven't heard from Tetrad UCSF do you think we can just assume its rejection by now? Or is there a chance they extend interview offers not all on the same day

FYI, Boston U PiBS sent out emails for invites by mistake and are trying to sort out who was supposed to actually get one. This is fine. I am fine. Everything is fine.

Really, do you know if BU PiBS sends out all invites at once though?

Did you by chance find out or call/email them?

Does anyone know when UW MCB typically extends interview invitations?

I applied to UW MCB too but haven't heard back. Do you know if they have already sent out invitations? Couldn't find any post about it.

 

Has anyone heard from UCLA Biosciences (Cell & Developmental Biology) and Harvard BBS?

Thank you for your reply! May I ask was it an email or phone call?

 

Seem like some people have already heard back from UW MCB and Northwestern Driskill too. I guess no luck for me!

At least I got invitations from several great schools. Still very thankful!

Congrats on the UCLA interview!! It's a great school too!

I really want to visit UW for their interviews too. I sent an email asking if they usually do extended interview invitation. Will definitely update here after they have replied.

Just got an interview for UCSD BMS! They're still making calls so keep your phone nearby.

Congrats!!! Question: how are you dealing with scheduling your interviews? If so many interviews I feel like some would fall in the same weekend. Have you had to decline any? Or do you wait to hear back from all schools first?  How long do you wait to let them know that you will be coming for an interview? I've received three invitations, but already have to turn down one because of time conflict. :(

Yeah in this case UCSD's two options overlap with UNC and Scripps. My interview with UNC is confirmed while Scripps won't send invites until January. If I get an interivew from Scripps I'll probably decline in favor of UCSD.

Of course, I also applied to the neuro program at UCSD, so I have no idea what I'll do if I get an interview for both programs. I guess I'll probably just pick whichever I prefer. Going to two interviews at the same school seems like a lot.

Been lurking for a bit, made an account just to post this. For everyone waiting to hear from UW MCB, I called and they informed me all emails relating to applications will go out over a period of two days. I have no idea if this is a good or bad thing for those of us who have yet to receive an email.

Thank you! I'm glad to hear this. Probably didn't make it to the top of the list but at least we still got a chance!
