No, I didn't.

Me, neither. And mine is B. Tidor by the way. So if you have the mood, I am actually curious about what evolutionary biophysics is. I only glimpsed on his webpage but did not dig into it. Feels like a relatively unique concept.

Its about using principles from statistical mechanics and molecular evolution to characterize the dynamics of genome evolution such as in cancer cells, viral populations, how and at what rate natural selection will take place, what external factor govern whether a mutation in the genome will survive in the next generations etc.

I didn't hear anything either... There seems to be only one post yet, whereas there were multiple people posting around the same time for other MIT programs. Maybe they haven't sent a mass invite e-mail. 

Based on past data, CSBi sends out pre-interview rejections about the same time as the interviews, so at least we'll have a definite result by the end of this week either ways.

Did you study Physics? I am curious about what kind of statistical mechanics principles. Does he only do theory or also experiments? Seems like a lot process needs to be studied and modelled, chromatin dynamics, replication. I think it is very interesting to define a good question where all the process can be controlled.

Yeah. All the other programs produces several entries. We only have one now.

I have done quite a lot of Physics though I am a Biology major. I am only interested in theoretical models that are tested in light of available data.

I broke down with anxiousness and mailed them again. Latest by Friday i.e. tomorrow they said.

You are not very strong, are you :) ? What took them so long? If it is gonna be a rejection, I prefer to know right now!

Seems like two rejections have been sent out as well. I have neither an acceptance nor a rejection. Wait listed?

I did not put it on the survey, but I am rejected. I do not think there is waitlist before interview. You will know in hours.

Sorry to hear that... But good luck with your other interviews! Was the rejection e-mail a mass e-mail? 

Friday is over too but I still haven't heard anything from them. That's really weird...
