Would anyone find it helpful to create a separate thread just for interviews? Looking back through previous years, I felt it would have been more helpful to have a thread dedicated to just interview n

After waiting and waiting, happy to say I got two acceptances today! Guess I'll be going to graduate school this year after all!

I've planned for alternate options. I have 3 separate contingency plans, lol. I applied to a PREP program, and I am working on my resume so I can get applications going for lab positions as soon as I

Hello! I noticed UNC's BBSP sent out two waves of interview notifications. I was wondering what departments the people who got interviews applied for. I am curious if different departments' admissions committees within BBSP notify applicants separately or does BBSP have its own separate committee. Thank you!

I got an email on the 14th. I applied by the priority deadline and am interested in molecular/cell biology, but I also have a friend that does bioinformatics and got an email on Friday too.

Does anyone know if Harvard BMS or UCSF Tetrad sent out interviews? It looks like both programs generally send interviews on the Friday of last week.

hi biol44, 

Right, they always send interviews for Harvard BBS on Friday of last week. It could be that they already sent the invites but nobody posted...

I got an invite on Saturday. My specialization is neurobiology though.

Thanks! Yeah, I was hoping to gauge whether all BMS invites were sent out or just specific concentrations. Still holding out a sliver of hope

Anybody hear back from Icahn SOM at Mount Sinai (Biomedical science)? They usually send out their interview invitations around December 12.

I applied there too and haven't heard anything back, but it looks like someone just posted in the results section that they got an interview invite today.

I just got an invite and I just applied to Biomedical Sciences.

Just got a call from Duke to switch my application from the Biology PhD to University Program in Genetics and Genomics (UPGG). I have an interview last week of January!
I was a little surprised but I do think the UPGG program will be a better fit and offers more flexibility and funding.

Has anyone who did not apply by the priority deadlines heard back from Vanderbilt or UNC Chapel Hill?

I know Vandy's deadline was this Saturday so I don't know if they were contacting people before that. I haven't heard anything.
