eteshoe, at least turn down SOME of those acceptances.  It's not polite to hold onto so many when others might want in.

YES!! Got my first official offer today! Happens to be from the same school that rejected me two years ago.   

What did people think of Stanford in general? And of Biology if that was your home program?

 

I really enjoyed everything they had to offer. I interviewed for Immunology and I think they really had a strong showing. I got a lot of opportunities to meet with faculty members and students across all years (one of the few schools where I met 6th years). Faculty there are really great, there seems to be alot of collaboration across the department and across Stanford as well. Most people I asked only had good things to say about it and when I asked what the worst thing about it was, someone said that it's sometimes pretty difficult to get ahold of PI's because they're often quite busy giving talks

Even though I haven't been a huge part of this thread (I created it, though...), I wanted to say thanks for the laughs while I lurk on here.

I've gotten two offers of admission today. I'm leaning more towards one than the other simply because I'm more familiar with the program, but I'm going to give the other program a fair shot and am asking questions to the POI there.

I didn't interview, but I just got an email from a program that I was on a "short" waitlist. I then did a phone interview that lasted 8 min with a program coordinator. Is that too short of a phone interview to get my hopes up. I had no prep time, it was a couple of minutes after I emailed back that I was interested.

I've been addicted to this thread. At one point during the application season, I would check the thread before brushing my teeth in the morning.

Is anyone here still waiting to hear a final yes/ no from Columbia Medical Integrated Program? Through this thread, I came to learn that people who have already been offered a place have to notify their decision by March 15. Since I didn't hear back yet, the safest assumption that I can make is that I have been waitlisted. But honestly I am kind of giving up. It's just been way too long.

Wow you have an impressive list of acceptances, do you know where you are leaning towards?

Thanks! I feel like I'm coming down to either UChicago, Stanford, Cornell and UW. I would love to make my decision by next week but let's see how realistic of a goal that is. It's really strange because 3/4 are outside NYC which I thought I didn't want to leave but it's funny how life works I guess

That same thing happened to me. I'm from the bay and Stanford was my dream school, but I'm taking the plunge and going to the opposite coast. Looks like you've got a tough choice to make. It'll be interesting to see what you choose with those options. Do you have favorites?

Actually everybody in every single program has until April 15th to notify, although most programs ask people to kindly tell them as soon as possible. I rejected my offer to Columbia's integrated program today, so maybe that spot will be for you! Good luck!

Sorry, this is unfortunately untrue. Only schools that are part of the CGS have the April 15th deadline. Most schools are indeed part of the CGS, but one of mine wasn't (OHSU).

Well, thanks for the information. I am a bit confused what to do now. Should I email them or just keep waiting? Btw, congrats on your Mt Sinai decision. I am sure you will love it. All the best.

Lots of schools are on spring break and interviews went later this year because of bad weather out East (there's bad weather out West, too, but drought isn't delaying interviews). I'm waiting until April then shooting emails to any program I haven't heard back from, which is 2.
