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

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!

"See" you at the UMich interview weekend!

I also applied to Yale MMPP and haven't heard anything; assuming rejection since a few people have reported invitations on the results page. Same with Harvard BBS- I believe their invites went out before Christmas

Saw someone on the result page saying all NYU grossman is out?  anyone else have information can confirm it ?

Not sure if that person is trolling, but I do see the same person posting the exactly same content on Scripps results page saying "mailed and found out all invitations have gone out", which is really weird. Sigh...hopefully this is not true.

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 programs and juggling a full-time job.

Do I have a chance with seven interviews? Starting to freak out 🤪

No... I am hoping to hear back from them too, as well as from MIT Bio. Fingers crossed! 🙏🏼

MIT usually sends out interviews in mid-January. I emailed the admin before and asked about possible delays in the admission timeline because of covid. They said it's not very likely to happen since the admission committee were reviewing applications remotely. Finger crossed!

I saw a person on here unironically say that they are more afraid of interviews than rejections... ruined my day

Did anyone get a confirmation email from the coordinator at Johns Hopkins CMM confirming your interview date? I got an interview invite during the holidays and emailed her my 3 preferences but have not heard back since then. 

I have yet to hear anything from her after sending my stuff before the holidays

Anyone else having an issue with their Baylor COM app status?

I have had two emails from them so far; first was to tell me I was moved to second choice program and second was telling me they will have an answer for me soon. The last email was almost a month ago. 

Now, when I try to get onto my status page it gives an error ((vm.errorModel[O])) has anyone else had this issue???

I know 2 or 3 people posted that they had received invites from UCLA IMMP, but is there any insight on whether more invites will be sent or if there is just one round?

I just emailed the program. they told me they are still reviewing, and will extend all invites before the end of January.
