If you really want economy plus, and are willing to pay the difference, buy the coach ticket and give the university that receipt. Most airlines will allow you to change seats/upgrade later and you can pay for that part yourself.

Thanks for the feedback! I was genuinely unsure whether this would be acceptable but the response here has clarified. Much appreciated.

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.

I emailed UChicago(Immuno). They said they are still reviewing the applications and expect to send decisions from early Feb to late March. 

 

That's good news. Thank you very much!

has anyone heard from roswell park cancer institute cell and molc bio phd?

I haven't heard from roswell park yet. I think they may send invites a little later than others. I'm going to be on the lookout mid Jan.

I feel your pain, @cancergirl... I am in the same position. I have been in panic-mode since December 15th when people started hearing back from their schools (some of which I applied to as well). :unsure:

I'm so annoyed. I think its because of my low gre scores. But everything else in my app is good.

Has anyone heard from Caltech biology program?

I had an online interview with them, but nothing since and I'm freaking out.

 

Same here. I contacted with their coordinator and she said all the invitations have been sent out. So I guess we are still not lucky enough.

Are you serious.....

Berkeley mcb, UCSF tetrad, and Stanford biosciences all want me and say I was a great candidate, but Caltech rejects me like that?

I am crushed.

When are the interview dates?

 

Rejection is tough. Remember that this is a somewhat random process. Perhaps they have bad metrics. Perhaps other people have personal relationships that help them get in. Perhaps they are looking for people in a different subfield than you are in. You got into some great programs. Try to be happy with that. I missed one of my top choices but just got invites at 2 super programs so I am happy. But it takes some time. You have the right to grieve as well. Sorry.

For those still wondering about UW Immunology, I got an interview offer last night. It's my understanding that most invitations had gone out by that point, so I suspect I was a bubble guy. Good luck to everyone!

I don't know if you're international, but if that's the case I know Caltech Biology is especially harsh with international applicants. Your other programs are quite amazing though, so I'm sure you'll be happier and appreciate your overall results once the acute pain of rejection starts to fade (I'm starting to heal too, so I feel you).

Stanford Biosciences sent out their invites already?
