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

Hi guys, I'm a intl. with a BS degree outside of US and currently a technician in a top 5 US school. Applied for 16 top programs, hoping that I can get into at least one : \
Fingercrossed we all get some news this week! Or it'll be a really painful and sleepless christmas.💀

Hi all!

We know this time is full of uncertainty, which can be very stressful! I can share my personal experience, which is certainly not all-encompassing, on the timing of interview invite notifications. The cycle that I applied, I received all of my invites between 12/13-1/15. It's still early given this timeline and I'm sure many programs are running a bit behind this year due to the strange circumstances of the pandemic.

I know this won't solve any anxieties, but hopefully there's a bit of comfort in having some more (albeit very little)  information.

All the best,

SNAAP Team 🌲🧠

Don't you worry! I believe having a US degree and MS from UCL makes a big difference, not to mention 2.5 yrs tech experience at NYU:) NYU is actually on my list, would love to do research and experience life at the NYC (I'm currently at the bay area).

Hi! Does anyone know if the Berkeley neuroscience program is sending out interview invitations to domestic and international applicants separately or at the same time? Also, how do they transfer the applications to Neuroscience program to other related programs? Did anyone hear from the program about the transfer process/are they actually doing this? Thanks in advance!
