This may be controversial: I don't think that it's worth investing your heart and soul into the Ivies or the UC's. For domestic & international students alike, it's a game of 3D chess to determine

I’m not so sure about this. I was under the impression that most admissions committees (for PhD at least, med school is a completely different story) really only care about research experiences and ac

Declined my offers and accepted my top school! Very excited, officially going to start my PhD journey this fall. Good luck to you all! Sending so many good vibes.

Anyone got the inside scoop on Vandy Neuro? Think they’re done sending invites out? #desperate 😎🏼

I'm wondering this too! It looks like the only invites that have been posted have been for IGP not NGP. 

I applied NGP...hoping that makes a difference for when the invites will be sent out😬

(For the record, I also applied to their Cog Neuro track under the Psych PhD (same PI), and I haven't heard of anyone hearing back about that program either - holding out hope for both lol)

Vanderbilt sent me an email yesterday with an invitation to interview. I'm not sure if they're done sending out invites, but the email was sent directly to me and had my name. Also, I applied directly to the NGP, so it could be different for IGP folks.

Has anyone who applied to the systems track at Columbia receive interview invitations?

So I received an interview invitation from Columbia, but I applied to the Animal Models of Nervous System Disorders specialization. I've got no idea if Columbia sends out interviews for different tracks at different times.

I think they are sending out invitations to the applicants altogether. The track/specialization is more for their own survey of the backgrounds and interests of applicants. I am an intl app and haven't heard anything yet, but according to the previous years, there might be slight hope that they will be sending out a more limited number of invitations before interview dates.

Hi, I received an email from Harvard on 12/18 saying :
"We have received a letter of recommendation from [reccomender], which has been added to your application."
But the recommender had already submitted the LOR back in November? Did anyone else receive this email/ know what this means?
[For reference, I applied to the Neuroscience Ph.D. program]
 
Thanks in advance!

Guys, do you know if universities stop sending invites from tomorrow and until January because of the holidays, so there is no reason to expect anything? 

A friend told me he received an interview on Christmas Eve once hah. Also, a lot of programs have sent invites after Christmas and before Jan in the past.

hahaha... when you haven't heard anything at all from any of your programs yet IT'S FINE. I'M COMPLETELY FINE.

I have the exactly same situation and I am freaking out😟 I would have been relieved to even receive a rejection, so that I would just know that the option was gone and would focus on other opportunities

idk about other people, but I'll just keep being a lab manager for another year and hope I can push out more pubs I guess. I was unlucky this year bc both of my conference presentations were full-on canceled. And i've only been doing full time research for two years, so I only have 1 pub.
