We had something like 55 applicants between our two days whereas, from what I've gathered from these forums, other disciplines/divisions had ~35 so, im not surprised they're taking longer, just wishing we could know sooner. Caltech and Scripps really just have me sitting here refreshing alllllll dayyyy.

Does anyone have any estimate of how many applicants they are going to accept?

Wait haha

55 people applied in total? Or out of the people that applied to chem bio, they only decided to interview 55?

The difference is crucial for my anxiety for the next few days LOL

My POI from Northwestern University wanted to have quick zoom call with me this week. Does anyone know what should I expect? Thanks.

I didn't apply to Northwestern, but I am currently attending for undergrad so I might be able to share any experience I may have had with your POI

Does anyone see this on their applyweb portal for UPenn? "A final, official transcript showing conferral of degree is required of all accepted students prior to matriculation."

I do not remember if this was on my portal before. 

Mine says this too! I think it doesn't indicate anything though, my overall status still says "ready for review"

Hm I wonder if that means I will be receiving an open house invite. I wish I remembered if that was there the whole time. What division did you apply for?

Do you basically have to be published to be admitted to a top ~15 organic program?

I wasn't published when I applied last cycle (I'm in grad school now and perusing through this thing to see how the COVID cycle is going), and I got into UCLA for organic and my application at Caltech (for organic) was also heavily considered there.

For everyone in organic waiting for a reply from Berkeley, just got a reply from professor I had been in contact with, said if we didnt hear anything yet an acceptance is a long shot as all first round offers have been sent. Said theyre accepting a really small class due to COVID
