I was wondering if you could tell us which one is your dream school?

It seems like you have lots of options, and I was curious which one you'd like to choose.

So sorry I am just seeing this haha! Although I was so fortunate to receive these invitations, I have decided to hone in on a smaller list so that I can also focus on schoolwork this semester: UPenn GCB, Harvard BBS, UCSF BMI, Princeton QCB, Berkeley CCB, and UChicago GGSB. I'm trying my best to keep an open mind and not pick favorites until after I've gone to the events, but I would be incredibly excited about the opportunity to attend any one of them!😊 Thanks for asking!

Thanks for answering my question! Those are great schools/programs. 

If you don't mind, could you please share your final decision as well? I'm curious to know ppl with many great options like you choosing which programs.

Receive the interview email from Upenn GCB this week!

Congratulations!

By the way, did you hear back from MIT EECS?

I saw many acceptances from MIT EECS in gradcafe, but I couldn't hear back anything from them.

I am also international student and from CS background.

I had an interview yesterday. So I think the compbio committee is still working on our applications.
