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

That’s what I want to know too! I haven’t heard back either. I emailed them on Tuesday to ask for an update, but they haven’t replied back to me yet 😕 it’s really weird...

I e-mailed to them right before they sent the e-mail about admission process, so I am not sure if it is ok to send them another e-mail again...Maybe I will send another one if I did not get any response next week...

I emailed them on last Monday, and they said:

"At this time, I do not have an update on your application. We should have decisions out this month, but no later than March 15th. " 

The admission committee is holding weekly finalising meetings so hopefully we will hear from IUSM next week...Fingercross

Oh it’s good you heard back! I imagine a lot of people are emailing them so they’re not responding to everyone yet. Fingers crossed that everything plays out this coming week! I really didn’t think we’d be getting decisions in March for an interview early in Jan... I hope all of us hear good news!

I hope everything is going great for everyone. I currently work at Weill Cornell and this application season was good for me. I am just putting out here what my current PI told me this past week. 

Weill Cornell has collaborated with Houston Methodist and this year they are starting a joint PhD program. Essentially you will be working under a PI at Houston Methodist but will receive graduate degree from Weill Cornell. Application deadline for Fall 2021 is March 15th if I am not wrong. Here is the link with detail info: https://www.houstonmethodist.org/weill-cornell-phd-program/ 

Hope this helps. Cheers!!

I have just recieved an email saying I was waiting-listed...And gave the deadline of responding an offer is 15/April. So I suspect until now all offers were being made...

Got waitlisted too!! It seems they were sending offers before too. Are you planning to wait it out or will you accept other offers?

probably they do, but not all people post or know Gradcafe? I feel this program interviewed much more people than they could accept.

Got waitlisted as well. Also, I second you on that. I haven't seen any other program interviewing so many applicants and not even sending rejections post interview.
