Any word from UPenn's BioE? It's been a month since the first interview weekend (I know it's only been 4 days since their last weekend, but still..). I've only seen one post on the results page.

I got my offer last week from my most preferred POI. I think it depends on how fast your POI get through all the interviewees and make the decision.

I heard that Fellowship offers were sent out yesterday, and RA offers will be sent out soon!

Fingers crossed since I haven't heard anything yet and I was considered for RA.

Yes, I think that too. One of my interviewers was recruiting at the three weekends, so I guess that may be a reason why I haven’t heard back yet.

PS. Congrats!

Low key dying waiting, but I guess it's probably going to be next week.

I'm with you on Duke, though I feel that nothing at this point is a bad sign. Oh well :(

Congrats on WashU, though! I saw you had an interview with UVA, were you at the 3/1 weekend?

Thank you! No, I declined the visit invite after the phone interview. Everyone seems so kind and cool there, though, so I bet you'll love it.

Same here. I think they mean biomedical/biological sciences. If you check this website https://grenotrequired.com/stem/ you'll see that many engineering programs still require the GRE.

Some require GRE programs and some don't. I think their are many options in both the cases.

I have not heard anything about Austin BME till now... I have been interviewed. May I infer that I may get a ...probably better result than rejection?

Has anyone who interviewed with Stanford heard back yet? On my application portal, there is a request to do a CertiFile transcript for my home institution, but I don't know if they have done that for everyone.

Anyone else get accepted to UPenn (woo!), but still haven't heard about fellowships/advisors? Kinda freaking me out for some reason.

Hm. Weird. I thought the acceptance would happen if a PI wants you. Did you mean interviewed instead?

I got my official acceptance letter on March 15th (email to check status), which said I would get another notification from the department about advisors etc. I am pretty sure I'm going to be rotating between labs, maybe that's why it's taking longer?

Congrats!!! I just know that there are two ways: either direct entry or possible rotation. When did you interview? For sure you shouldn’t be freaking out, I am 😭

Edit: and yeah, maybe that is why, since I’ve seen that people have posted that they’ve gotten matched with just one of their interviewers. Hopefully they have started the round of acceptances with people having more than one PI with you.

Wooooooo got that rejection from Northwestern.

But seriously, if anyone reading this who had an interview at Rice is unenthusiastic, please decline the offer ASAP :) and if anyone has any other related details, let me know!
