I still have not heard back from any of the schools I have applied to. 

I am an international applicant.

Does this mean that I am rejected or waitlisted for the next wave of interviews?

Anyone else spiraling into checking their email, the results page and forums every 10minutes? 🤡

That's a terrible way to apply to graduate school.

What counts as middle and low tier?😅 Go big or go home I guess haha, I just picked good schools whose program I liked and would be happy attending

Did Anyone hear anything from Duke for Molecular Cancer biology?  I did not hear a word

Yes, I heard back on December 18th. They're having their interviews between January 11-12, 2021 and January 25-26. I don't know if they have a waiting list or how it works with listing a secondary program of interest on your Duke application but I wish you all the best. Good luck with everything and I hope that it all works out!

I got interview invites for UCLA MCIP (1/6) and BU Biology (1/7). I suspect UCLA might be done because they only have one interview weekend (2/17-2/19) and have already started organizing it. However, no news might be good news because my friend who applied to that program already received a rejection! I'm not sure about BU Biology; they gave one interview option (1/25) but said they'd be happy to reschedule. I haven't seen a lot of reports on the results page so I wouldn't lose all hope yet! Best of luck with all your apps!!!

Question: if you get waitlisted do they tell you? and what does this actually mean? 

 

also anyone heard back from UCLA IMMP, UCSD biological sciences or UCB MCB? (im international)

Hi, I forgot to mention that I received a rejection from UCLA on January 10th.

I haven't received any response from the other schools however.

Thank you! All the best!

I'm international too, US BS and MS degrees and also applied to UCLA and have heard nothng 😕 nothing on the portal either. I do know that people have received invites from IMMP, and that interviews are scheduled for Jan sometime, but I do not know if they will have multiple rounds.

Thank you! I applied to the cell and molecular program. Based on that, the interview invites would be sent around January - February right?

Interviews late February, decision early March. But I will contact one of the professors today, maybe she can tell something more specific (doubt that)

Has anyone at all heard from Stanford Micro and Immuno and NYU Vilcek Immuno? The wait is exhausting

 

 

Do you mean micro or immunology and inflammation? If micro, I applied to Vilcek for micro track and haven't heard anything/seen anyone post anything about micro, but I have seen people receive invites for immunology and inflammation

I got interviews from UCSD Biological Sciences (12/18) and Berkeley MCB (12/16). Unfortunately I think both of those programs might have already sent out most of their interviews -UCSD actually said they invited more people than they actually interview and Berkeley has already started organizing things and they have an info session for interviewees tomorrow. I am American though, so if the admissions considerations are different for international students this might not apply!!

I think UCB MCB sent out all of their interview invitations.

Anyone know how soon after interviews programs send out acceptance/denials? I'm sure it's quite variable but just curious what people think/know

The two places I interviewed with so far say they meet the week after. So my interviews were on a Friday, and the team meets the following Tuesday to make a decision.

I’m waiting for my MIT rejection. Should come today. Just want to get it over with. So exhausted mentally
