2021 Biology PhD Admissions Results


Recommended Posts

I actually interviewed with BU for MCBB graduate program on 25th Jan. I think prospective students for CM program were also invited the same day! 

I remember them telling that they might interview few more people in Feb before making final decisions on all the applicants. I don't know if this only applies to MCBB program or even the CM program.  Fingers crossed for all of you!!

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

Also, feel free to DM me, too! I'd love to chat about Ecology stuff and hear about your thoughts on schools

I also applied to U of Oklahoma! 
 

DM me if you wanna chat! I heard the grad college should be sending out decisions within the next week.

Congratulations! Are you an international applicant?

I am an international student who applied to the CM program at BU. I did not receive an invite/rejection yet! Do you have more information on the timeline?

Thank you! I'm an international student without a US degree. I'm not sure about the timeline to be honest. I'm sorry I can't provide more info.

Has anyone who hasn't interviewed for Harvard BBS and Yale BBS heard back yet?

Nope, wasn't invited for Harvard BBS interview. Last year they sent rejections the first week of March so perhaps that will be it. they are doing rolling admissions this year but I don't know if that means anything for the people that didn't get offered an interview.

good luck for your NYU interview! You got this!

Has anyone heard back from UTMB? I'm assuming with the terrible storms in Texas we can be looking at Texas decisions being delayed by an extra 1-2 weeks. 

Applied: Columbia SoM (Biosciences), Boston University SoM (PiBS), University of Texas Medical Branch (M&I), UCSF (TETRAD)

Accepted: 0/4

Rejected: 2/4

Waitlisted for Interview: BU PiBS

Ah okay, glad to know I'm not in this boat alone. 

Thanks! I hope NYU works out, if not then it's no grad school for me (unless being on the waitlist for BU actually means anything). 

Hopefully things work out for you too!

When you say ‘rolling admissions this year’ do you mean the Department is still open to accept applications?

 

I would like to send in an application if the deadline of December 1 isn’t applicable for this year.

Oh no, they're not taking any more applications. Just that they most likely have a waitlist and they're sending out a couple of offers, waiting to see how many people accept, and then based on that, they will send out another round of offers until their target is met.

Alright. Thank you. 
 

 

Do you know of any biomedical program with applications deadline still open?
