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.

Hey, I saw that there were 2 new acceptances for Columbia Neurobiology & Behavior.  Were both of you cellular/molecular?

I was and received a really nice email from Wes last night! Totally wasn’t expecting to hear back over the weekend haha. This is my top choice, I’m so excited!!!

The email said the co-directors have met so I assume the rest of the offers will roll out soon depending on the track.

Congrats!!!! So excited for you :) I applied under the Animal Models of Nervous System Disorders tract so I'm hoping that those decisions haven't all gone out yet since Columbia is my top choice as well.

I found my status updated to "Decided" but no emails came.

I have the same status too and I don't know what that means. Hopefully they'll send out an email early next week.

Anyone know when Mount Sinai is sending decisions out?

No concrete idea but more than likely this week. They finished meeting last week per my PI but it's up in the air. Lol I've been refreshing my email constantly and keeping my ringer on ALL the time to just ensure I don't miss anything.

I hope everything is going great for everyone. I currently work at Weill Cornell and this application season was good for me. I am just putting out here what my current PI told me this past week. 

Weill Cornell has collaborated with Houston Methodist and this year they are starting a joint PhD program. Essentially you will be working under a PI at Houston Methodist but will receive graduate degree from Weill Cornell. Application deadline for Fall 2021 is March 15th if I am not wrong. Here is the link with detail info: https://www.houstonmethodist.org/weill-cornell-phd-program/ 

Hope this helps. Cheers!!

Can't find out via phone because the admissions office doesn't pick up. Hopefully we find out this week!

Its GDS. But I think they usually release result at the same time

Ahhh okay. I wouldn't worry too much as no one has yet to update the results page just yet, and sinai admits a good amount of students each year. I would expect at least some activity on that page if decisions were sent out already.

I also applied to the models of disorder tract and also still waiting to hear back. Hope for the best but also definitely stressed.

One of my Sinai interviewers said that they write a paragraph about us for Dr. O'Connell to read and then he ultimately decides so he has to read 810 comments from the reviewers. 😕
