I'm still waiting for Harvard to reject me.  I'm a second year PhD student.

Are you international or american?

Not the person you quoted, but I also got an invite from Yale today and I am American. It was an email from a POI so they might still be going through the process. Hope you can hear some good news soon!

Hi all! Question about American norms in international travel funding. 

***

I received an invitation from 2 schools that offer funding for international travels, and 2 schools that offer domestic travel refund only. 

So... How should I manage my funding requests? should I ask to split the int'l flight between two schools? is it ok for a school to pay for an int'l flight that is approx. 3 weeks before the interview, which clearly means that I am using their funding to get to a different interview? What is considered polite to do in this case?

Many thanks!

Just received invitation from JHU (PBS) unofficially, they will be sending official ones soon, by next week.

Hey could you PM initials of your PI or post them in the forum? Thanks.

I know this might be sensitive, but has anyone gotten rejections from the following schools? I haven't been rejected or granted an interview so I'm trying to gauge if I should hold out hope. Or if you know that a school is done sending out interviews, that'd be helpful as well!

 

Emory

Mt. Siani

NYU

Penn

Pitt

Irvine

UCLA

UCSD

UNC Chapel Hill

UWashington (Seattle)

 

Thanks in advance!

Anyone else not have many rejections or interviews yet? I have one interview and one rejection so far and applied to 8. Some of the schools seem to have already sent out rejects or interviews so it seems strange not to have either. Someone earlier said this means you're on a waitlist for interview not sure if that's the case.

The same here... Applied to 9 programs in total (international student), and haven't heard back from any of them... I saw in this thread that some of them are done sending invites, but can't understand why they don't send rejections if I am already rejected.

I was in the same situation until 20 minutes ago when I got a rejection from Mount Sinai. International student. Havent received news from any other Program (applied to 6)

Thanks in advance!

Mount Sinai sent out rejection notifications now. Were they impressed by everyone's credentials? :D
