Red flag - lol - go focus on some research please.

Wow. Thanks for the info. I never knew!! Nor did I set down this path with any better info than an internet forum poster could give me. I did not solicit advice.

Just got a call from an unknown San Diego number and with absurd enthusiasm ran out of the library (#finals) to answer. It was a telemarketer. Hang in there, pals.

Accepted into UW-Madison's MDTP (top choice!)

I did ask about the political+funding situation during my interview. The program (microbio department in general) is well insulated from funding cuts (they even increased the stipend this year), and professors that would have left have mostly done so by now - but it doesn't hurt to ask the ones you are particularly interested in. This is not the case for every department, so if Madison is on your radar then be sure to ask - the information was practically volunteered by a few people.

Bro please share your profile

has anyone gotten a rejection from emory cancer that did not interview yet?

I hate to tell you this, but if I were you I'd rather know. Emory Cancer Bio only has one interview weekend and that was January 26-28. I would assume you're application was rejected. But if it makes you feel any better, I was interviewed and I have not been accepted yet, and I know others have.
