I got accepted to NYU Vilcek!!!! It was the only school that gave me an interview and literally all other schools rejected me but I don't care anymore because I am getting my PhD!!!!  

Does anyone know how competitive interviews will be this year? I've received 10 invites so far, but decided to decline three offers because I'm still waiting to hear back from a few other program

Hi guys, I hope you don't mind if I rant a bit. I guess this entire cycle has just been really hard. I received my waitlist from BU (where I currently work, got my undergrad and masters degree from AN

Hey party people! Has anyone else been invited to interview at UCLA (IMMP), Yale (BBS, Micro), University of Washington (Pathobiology), or BU (PiBS)? Would love to say hi to you! (Everything feels so isolating when it's happening remotely...)

Also... Has anyone else gotten good news from "reach" schools and waitlist/rejections from "safety"s? I feel like my luck has just been insane (not to be that person. I am genuinely stupid)

Yeah, I'm almost certain I'm going to be rejected by Weill Cornell, yet I'm getting interviews from schools I didn't seriously think I'd get good news from. Funny stuff.

BU (PiBS) here! 

Haven't heard any progress. I believe they are still reviewing the materials

Hello! I heard from BU (PiBS) on Monday (1/4) about an interview! This was after receiving the email that stated they would send more emails after the new year as they hadn't gotten through all the applications. My interview is set for February 8th. 

The only schools I am left waiting on are Yale MMPP program, Harvard BBS, Vanderbilt IGP, and Georgia State IBMS (my safety). I already have heard back and received interviews from UAB (Jan 13-15), Emory (Jan 27-29), FSU (Jan 29-30), UMich (Feb 4-6), BostonU (Feb 8), Baylor (Feb 11), and WashU STL (Feb 25-26)!

Good luck everyone! I am so glad I found this site this morning; I was unsure if schools would even reach out if they didn't offer you an interview/were rejected. Thanks for all the insight and feedback from everyone!

Hi! Thank you, and I hope you hear back soon! On the research interest part of the application, I chose biochemistry, pathology, and molecular & translational medicine. Hope this helps!

I wouldn't quite consider it a "safety", but I will say that its research presence isn't as strong as several of the places I've gotten interview invitations.

Yes, it was me. This is the exact response I received from the admissions: 

"Thank you for your interest. We have started to send out invitations to interview for January dates. You could hear anytime between now and February since we interview through March."

Do you know if it applies to a specific track or the biomedical science program in general?

I applied to the Biomedical Science PhD program (which is the umbrella program). And I think everyone has done the same. I don't think you can apply to an individual track per se. So, if I received this response, it essentially means it applies to the Biomedical Science PhD Umbrella program and not any specific tracks.
