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.

I feel like Yale might be done... people are posting interviews from a couple days ago now and looks to be similar numbers posting as years before but who knows!

My main hope is that it seems like faculty are the ones reaching out.  I’m hoping that it’s taking some faculty longer than others due to the holiday season (in previous years, Yale released after the holidays so this year is already a bit unusual)

How about Princeton? Do you guys think they're done sending out invites?

I think Princeton might still be sending out interview invites -- the results page shows that they started sending them out last week on December 23, and they've continued to send them over several days. They sent me an invite this past weekend!

Me too. So sad. It's my dream program.

Duke Neurobiology is admitting 1/3rd the number of students this year (less than 10) compared to last year but got 2.5 times as many applications (230 this year versus around 90 last year). Unless your POI is on the admissions committee, chances are slim this year in all of the Duke Biomedical PhD programs as well as the Biology PhD program, even if you have a 4.0 or close to 4.0 GPA and decent research experience.

Thanks for the information!

I'm an international applicant with a MS in the US. 3 pubs and 2 are in preparation. Had a good talk with my POI who serves on the admission committee. Sooo sad I could not get an inview invite. I used to think there would be less applications this year but clearly I was wrong.

Any info on the Psychology and Neuroscience PhD program in Duke? I have applied to Psychology and Neuroscience and have not heard back, neither an invite nor a rejection. And this is not a Biomedical program, it belongs to another department I think.

UPenn NGG now says they’re still reviewing apps and they expect all invites to be sent by late January

Who did you contact in the program (i.e. POIs or Program Leadership)? I’m thinking of doing the same thing for another program I applied to!

I'm feeling kinda numb by this stage since I haven't received ANYTHING from any program I applied to 😑 I feel that neuroscience programs make earlier decisions than psychology programs which is what I'm primarily applying to

Where did you apply?
