I don't know if this is pertinent information to anyone here because it's technically a psych program but UChicago Integrative Neuro sent out interviews yesterday. 

 

 

Edit: Sorry I didn't know people would be so upset that I posted this here. I'm not quite sure how to delete the comment? But I posted it here because integrative neuro and neurbio at Uchicago are very similar in curriculum and have a lot of faculty overlap so I wasn't sure if some people here applied to the integrative neuro program instead of neurobio. I personally applied to mostly neuro/bio programs but at uchicago chose integrative neuro instead of neurobio because it has better funding

Hey everyone, moderator here.  There were a lot of complaints about RadNeuro's comments.  They have been hidden and the user will no longer be able to post. For the sake of continuity of the thread and to prevent further derailment, I have deleted replies to his comments as well, even though some of them were very nice.  Please continue about your discussions, and good luck to all of you!

Amazing! Thanks for sharing

Did Einstein neuroscience send put some interview invites? I didn't see anything.

I received one Jan 3 for Einstein, and only listed interest in neuroscience

Hmm I still didn’t receive anything but maybe it’s because I selected the last interview date

Probably that is the reason, but you will get it soon. I just finished my interview at Mount Sinai. Such a great experience.

I am just curious .Did Brown send out rejections .I was checking last year's results and I noticed that by this date they had been sent out.I wrote to the department to enquire about my status a week ago and they did not reply whilst the status of my application portal has not changed.I have not received an invitation for interviews .I am international and have noticed that interview invites for domestic applicants were sent out recently.Last question can someone be accepted without an interview.

Has anyone heard anything from Stanford Neuroscience since Wednesday? In past years they called people on multiple days but I haven't heard of anyone getting anything besides that one day. Wondering if I should mentally cross it off or not!

Still haven’t received any official invite after my unofficial one! I wouldn’t cross it off yet

Congratulations! Wish you all the best for your upcoming interview(s). I hope I get an interview from Einstein. Definitely want to stay in the NYC area since my wife just started her law school here

Just got my rejection from UNC BBSP.

In the email they said they have over 1900 applicants this year.

Same :( I hate this process so much - I feel so rejected.

Not really surprised b/c no interview so far. But it seems they have many many more applicants than before. From the stats on UNC website it’s like ~1000 a few years ago?

Also - although someone already asked in this stream - could someone get an offer without receiving an interview? It looks like some programs have already sent out all interviews, but no rejections. Why do they keep us in the false hope :(

I think it's just a lot of work to send out the rejections and they're probably focusing on getting the interviews together.

Is there anyone who still hasn't heard from UNC BBSP? I don't know if they just have a lot of rejection emails to send and that's because I didn't receive one with everyone else (but I'll at some point) or if not receiving one actually means something now, like a wait-list or something.
