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. 

Oh no.. cheer up dude! you'll get more invites from other schools.

it's surprising they're only interviewing around 4 international students this year.. 

why are they reviewing international students so late? is it because they want to interview domestic students first and then internationals?

Usually its becasue international students will not be fly out. but I think this year is a little different. but if you look through their past record the number of international invites has always been low for this program.

Thank you so much!  Hope we could meet each other there as classmates :P

I think Tri-I is a little too reachy for me, but I would through the roof if I got in there. UPenn GCB really hurts me badly today !!!

Patpat... just look at the brighter side: so many programs haven't sent out their invitations!

I did biomedical engineering with a CS minor undergrad and am interested in genetics & bioinformatics for grad school. So I applied to different types of programs at each school depending on their program options, faculty in each department, curriculums, and recommendations from my current advisors and POIs. Here's my current status. 

UPenn GCB [interview invitation 12/8]

Harvard BIG [interview invitation 12/23]

MIT CSB

MIT Biology

Stanford Genetics

JHU BME

I also got rejected from UW; I think it may be because its not comp bio specific that we are competing with a larger/ more diverse pool of applicants?

Also, I didn't get an email from Stanford BMI about anything related to the week of January 11; is that a bad sign? I don't mind if it is, just trying to understand :)

Damn... Is Harvard out today already? Feeling a bit annoyed now...hopefully my recommenders didn't screw me over...

Yeah it looks like someone reported Harvard BIG 😕 

I did not get an interview so far yet, but also no rejection. When I log into the portal I don't see any information either; I'm super nervous loll

I literally just heard back from Harvard BIG so I wouldn't stress yet, the email was also somewhat personalized since it was addressed to me specifically and had an attachment letter also addressed to me.
