PhD offer from CMU CPCB! No interview

Just had an interview with UCLA medical informatics. Feeling terrible right now.

I was told there were only two professors interested in my application so I had to perform well. (Seems like other people might have multiple interviews, meeting 4 - 5 professors in total). But I guess I did not.

It's actually my second time interviewing with this program. Have no idea how the bar become so high this year.

Don't feel terrible! I believe you did well, and they saw you as a strong fit both times in order to invite you for an interview!

I only had two interviews too :( Do you happen to know how long before we hear back with a final decision?

I know last year my interview was in late January and they told me the decision would be sent out around mid-Feb.

However, I didn't hear about anything until March 25th I was told all of the offers have been accepted and that your application was officially denied by the appropriate admissions committee. (It was sent to both Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics applicants).

Anyone else get invited to the CMU/Pitt CPCB virtual open house (Feb 19-20) yesterday? Is this an acceptance or........

I got an acceptance letter around 25th January, and it included a registration form for the Open House events.

Wasn't that the case for you?

I also got the offer in January! I believe they (the CMU part of the program) invite people after admitting; but you have until Apr.15th to decide whether to accept the offer.

I heard back from USC two days ago, it was an email from of the people that I interviewed with. 

Forgot to quote. It seems that people are getting unofficial offers from their POIs... which makes me very upset, I have not heard from mine for a week

Is anyone aware of the post-interview acceptance rate of UCLA Bioinformatics? I think they might send out decisions in 1-2 weeks and I'm so nervous 😔

you can take a look at this page: https://bioscience.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/NGLS-Admissions-Summary_2017-2020.pdf 

seems like bioinformatics program accepts 50~80% of the interviewees.

Would you mind sharing what your stats / aspects of your application were? Either here or in PM

One of my interviewers emailed me last Tuesday, so took about a week.
