Me too, obviously each school has their own needs and policies, and I did not see this coming. Just fingers crossed for further invitations.

Any validity to that rejection post on the results page?

All of the NYC schools and the top programs are in winter break until January 2nd, I would ignore most posting on the results sections until then, and by all means, try to relax and enjoy the holidays ya All !

To all the people posting here - 

I started this page hoping that one day I might post a positive reply here but unfortunately, I could not do so. So, I am wishing good luck to all those who got accepted in NYU's Sackler Biomedical PhD program and better luck next time to those who got somewhere else. In my case, I applied to 11 universities out of which got rejected by 8. I also, as of now, do not have any positive hopes from the other 3 available universities as it is already mid-February. I applied to 3 universities before for Fall 2018 but could not get admitted. I left everything, made my profile better and applied again for Fall 2019. For those of you, who think my profile must be weak let me tell you my profile summary - 3.62 GPA, 107/120 TOEFL, 2+ years research experience, 1 publication, 3 conference posters and won in all three. So, I am now giving up on this PhD dream of mine. I don't have any hopes and as per my financial condition goes I have already spent half of my savings in giving these exams, filling applications and again repeating the same.

Good Luck to all others. Hope you all do your PhD successfully. Also, Thank You for reading my rant for 2 minutes. I felt light.

Hi friend,

I am not going to ignore the realities of graduate school applications, it's getting increasingly competitive and still unfairly biased towards candidates who can afford admission fees, prep materials, taking time off to do apps/interviews, etc. But I also want to offer you my support. If this is your dream, do not give up! I know that at this point in time it seems as if nothing will get you to where you want to be. Please let me know how I can help, whether it be looking at your application, giving you advice on what to do next, or just listening to your story. I don't want to seem preachy or like a know-it-all, but rather offer a peer some encouragement.

Please feel free to PM me! Best wishes to you.

Hey guys, Sackler had the last batch of interviews this past week and the committee met today from what I have been told. So they are not done with decisions judging from this. I for one, have been anxious and almost about to start plugging my eyebrows...my PI said the path of science never gets easier, especially the waits (for applications, grants, etc) and I guess we should all take their word for it. Mental health is a big deal...it is necessary to check in with yourself every once in a while and dont let the self-doubts and anxiety take over you.

I went to the last interview session (Feb 28th - March 1st). They said we will hear back between late this week and the beginning of April.
