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. 

I was just accepted to the HST program at MIT/Harvard!! I can't believe it. Still part of me thinks they made a mistake and accidentally admitted me.

I do have a master's degree. I am not sure if all the interview emails are out at this point for Princeton. Also for Stanford BMI, they said that they would start to contact people during the week of January 11th in an email they sent earlier.

I am not counting on Princeton to be honest... A little bit too reachy for me, my background and reserach interests is also not very aligned with what they have. They are also very basic science focused.... But I am still suprised how many people here got an invite. Congrats ! big accomplishment. 

I did see someone already posted they got invites from stanford BMI tho....

got a reject from UW Genome Sci 😔

Same here, I wonder what they are looking for, so far got 6 interviews and 1 reject.

Hope you got interviews somewhere else 👩‍🔬
