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

Based on the results section of Grad Cafe, there have already been some acceptances to the Biosciences program (M&I and Immunology home programs, although I think they all make their decisions at pretty much the same time). At the interview, I was told that for my program (M&I) they would make offers for the exact number of spots they had available (6) and then if anyone refused their offer they would make additional acceptances so they ended up with exactly 6 students. I haven't heard anything yet, so I'm assuming I was not among their initial 6 acceptances.

I haven't heard anything too from Genetics! Still wait...

Has anyone who interviewed for Yale BBS MCGD heard anything yet?

If it helps explain some things, I applied to Yale BBS Micro and the program coordinator called me on the phone (~2 weeks after my interview) to explain they were having a lot of issues with funding. Apparently they weren't already aware of their budget situation because of COVID prior to actually having interviews? Which means they're offering a lot fewer people than they normally would... I got my admissions decision emailed ~4 weeks post-interview.

I see, that makes sense about the delay. That's too bad about funding, I'm sure everyone who got an interview is very qualified. Hoping for the best!

USC PIBBS started sending out offers! Not sure if on a rolling basis or not. 

Hi there, did you receive an email from the admin or have a decision letter on your portal? I don't have any news from them (email/call/portal update) so far...

I got an admissions phone call from them on 3/12 around 11am EST, they said that more info/ the official admission email would come out perhaps later this week. Idk if everyone has been receiving calls though. In any case, best of luck!

Hi! Last Friday, a PI that I interviewed with emailed me that the admissions committee had voted to offer me admission and that I would receive an official email the following week (which I still have not received). Fingers crossed for you! 😊

I was told that if you don't hear back, you are waitlisted. For people who got accepted to Stanford Bioscience but aren't going, please let them know ASAP. They only admitted the exact number of students so I would really appreciate the opportunity to get off the waitlist. Thanks!

I got an interview for BU PiBS off the waitlist. It's this Friday and the coordinator just emailed us and asked us if we could set up our own zoom interviews and email the professors with the links directly. Kind of strange, no?
