Yes, I just checked unfortunately I got rejected to UCSF. I did just find out I got into Yale though!! UCSF and Yale were my top choices so I am really happy!!

ACCEPTED TO UPENN GCB! Wow so excited.

New here, has any international student heard from UNC BBSP Computational biology/bioinformatics or know when one can expect a response? 

Not an international student, but I’ve got the same question. Also has anyone heard from WashU in St. Louis computational biology?

Just a tip for those who are new: you can search to see if anyone has reported the schools they have gotten interviews from on this site under the "Results" tab above. You can search the school and program and use date filtering to help see the most recent results. You may have already known that, but it was something I recently figured out a few days ago. Hope that helps and best of luck!

Thanks. I check there but it's kinda hard to know since people just list BBSP and not some specific program.

I just heard back about an hour ago from UNC BBSP (I applied to the computational biology/bioinformatics program) with an interview invitation! Although I am not an international student.

I am curious if the same number of interview invites are being sent out as past years, or if they increased the number due to interviews being virtual and therefore cheaper. 

From what I have heard is, the number is around the same

Does anyone know if invitations from UPenn GCB and Harvard BBS usually come in waves? These two are my top choices. I haven't heard anything from either of them. It seems like I shouldn't keep my hopes up. 

UPenn GCB only have international student invitation left and I suspect there are not much, I think Harvard says it comes in one wave
