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

Also, does anyone know the % of acceptance after interview that Columbia Biomedical Sciences has?? I know that some schools such as UPenn, if you are invited to interview then you're pretty much in, but I also know it is not like this for all schools. I was wondering about Columbia, does anyone know? I can't find it on the website either! thanks

Umm two business days till the cornell interview and they havent sent me who I'm interviewing with. Anyone else in the same spot?

From my understanding, they are giving us the interview list the day we check in. I have heard some schools do this so people don't have too much time to prep. But I'm also in the same position

Does anyone know if NYU or Weill Cornell are done sending interviews?

For Weill, it seems like if you aren't already on the waitlist, you likely will not get an interview. Also, the interview days are in less than a week. Best of luck with all of your other interviews and acceptances!!

Hey! How many interview weekends do they have and when are they? I love their program but I have interviews pretty much all February, so I am scared that if I end up getting off the waitlist I won't be able to attend (also, do you know if realistically there's any chance of getting off the waitlist?). I applied for Pharmacology. Thanks!

For pharmacology, they only listed one interview date which is Jan 23-25. Not sure how their waitlist works. Best of luck to you!

I have no idea for Pharmacology, I was invited to interview for Physiology, Biophysics & Systems Biology Program (PBSB). The only interview option for this program is Wednesday, January 23 through Friday, January 25. I would ask them where you are on the waitlist if I were you, I assume it depends on the program.

Thanks for the info! Maybe they will do a second round for people on the waitlist? Depending on how many people they think are gonna enroll? I have no idea tbh. But best of luck if you have one interview there!

Congrats! And that is actually a very good idea. I just don't want to sound annoying, since I have contacted the program already. Also, I believe your interview weekend is the same as Pharmacology. Best of luck with your interviews and please post your experiences!

How did you find out that you were on the waitlist? I haven't heard anything. I wish they would just tell me already if they were going to reject me lol

Anyone hear from EEB or CEB? I accidentally stumbled into a lit PhD results page where they were discussing fake early results in the results section. The results section said invited were sent out 12/15 and they’re only taking 4 people. Holding out hope that’s not true!

The EEB/CEB invites have been sent out. 17 invites for 5 spots! I applied for CEB but all of communication I’ve received has said EEB for some reason

Does anyone know the reputation of Irell And Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences at The City of Hope? I applied here because there are some PI's and projects that are of interest to me. I can't find much about this program on google, and it's not on any ranking lists, but I know that City of Hope is one of the leading cancer centers in the nation. Any input is appreciated. 

Hi! I applied to coh too! Did you receive an interview invitation?
