I just checked my application status for Georgia Tech and had a decision letter from there! :)

Was it on the application portal?

I got a web invite to their program information session (so I assume that's a good sign) but when I log into the application portal I don't see any update.

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

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’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

I got that email too which led me to believe I was accepted. When I checked the application portal, it said "status update" with my acceptance letter attached! It looks like it was just updated, so I bet yours will be updated with an acceptance soon as well!

Does anybody know when we can expect to hear back from Mount Sinai (for the Neuroscience MTA)?  Or if everyone will hear back at the same time?  I feel like nobody mentioned it. Thanks!

Rejected from one of two programs I interviewed for. Feeling really down and not very confident about my chances for the other now. I feel like I just got dumped, its so sad.

I’m sorry, I imagine that feels horrible. However, there’s still one to go! Sending you all the best vibes!

I know this feeling. I had one interview like that recently. I'm sorry, feels horrible, especially when you personally feel like it was such a great fit. Keep your head high and keep going! :)

Yea they said everyone would know within 2 weeks after the second interview date so 1 more week!

Now that the interview weekends are over, any thoughts on when we might hear from Pitt (CNUP)?

I heard back about a week after the first interview weekend so I'm assuming that they decide fairly quickly.

Is anyone else dying from anxiety post Columbia NBB interview? 

I know they still haven't sent out most offers since the second interview weekend is this week, but I can't help but drive myself crazy replaying everything I could have done better (since it was my first round of interviews). 

It's my top choice and I know I'll be heart broken if I don't get in.

I completely understand how you are feeling! Just know that we are going to find out our decisions very soon (probably by next Friday the 19th)!!!

I have my interview for NBB this week, it looks like each weekend had ~30 people. Does anyone know how many offers they will send out? It’s my dream program/school so I’m really hoping I receive an offer!

They send out only 15 offers, so this is a toughie. Fingers crossed!

I think maybe 15/weekend if this is what you mean.  I'd assume they give a little over 30-35 offers (out of 60 interviews).

Ohh, maybe I’m only thinking about only the NBB program then? A current student there told me her cohort size is 15.

Yes, so the cohort size of NB&B is between 10-20 usually (it definitely varies), but since the matriculation rate probably between 30-50% (most top programs are like this), they likely have to make twice as many offer in order to get the cohort size they want.

I see! That makes sense :) definitely makes me feel better about the odds!
