2017 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results


Recommended Posts

BTW, on the website for UChicago it says that until you receive a decision from the program, you are still under consideration (even if you haven't received an interview invite, which you'll obviously need to have at some point). Has anyone received an invite AFTER the first round was sent out, and ultimately was accepted that way?

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 was hoping that he/she might have been an early outstanding applicant and an outlier. 

 

Their website says they will release invitations today or during this week.:unsure:

"Q: What is your timeline for reviewing applications?
A: The Admissions Committees will start to review applicant files directly following the application deadline. It is important that all of your application materials are submitted by the deadline. During the week of January 9, 2017, the committees will start to contact those applicants who have been selected for an interview. "

Maybe they're an outlier; however, I was under the impression that each department within biosciences acts independently of each other, so they don't have to follow those guidelines strictly. A couple people have posted getting Stanford invites before today.

Thanks for the info. That answer was from Stanford Biochems website.

I'll cross my fingers in hope that they still send out more. But will also dampen my expectations a little

The NYU sackler interview is this upcoming weekend... has anyone received a schedule ? 

I am also going this weekend, so maybe see you there! I have not received a schedule, but I the coordinator told me that they would be sending them out the week of the interview....so I guess it could be anytime between now and Thursday.

when did you get an interview invite??? I still haven't heard from Chicago...

I heard on the 29th, which I thought was a weird time to hear back. I'm not sure how they send out invites, but good luck!!

also, finally heard back from Vanderbilt! for context I sent in my application on Dec 5th, which was after the priority deadline, and they review on a rolling basis, so don't give up if you are waiting to hear back!

My first recruit visit starts tomorrow. Getting anxious!  Anyone have any recruit visits yet?  If so, how did it go?

Me too! I think GSK might be the earliest one among all programs. Mix of excitement and anxiety right now.

Did you guys get to choose either 1/12-13 or 1/26-27 or they just assign you the date? I received their invitation on Dec 22nd and the only choice for me is 1/26-27, I hope that doesn't mean I am ranking low amount all applicants :( ... I am hoping it's only because my name starts with Z...

It might be based on what specialty you were interested in and which professors were available one which dates. I wouldn't worry about that.

Thanks, that sounds reasonable. I kind of remember that NYU Sackler didn't require us to list area of interest or professors since they are a big umbrella program, that's why I am a bit worry...

They definitely asked us to list professors, and also it's likely you mentioned your interests and professors you would like to work with in your personal statement

Has anyone heard back from the University of Washington's Microbiology program yet?  They sent out interview emails on Jan. 7th last year and Jan. 9th the year before.

I went to Pitt this weekend, it went really well! They had us meet with 6-7 faculty members, but the interviews were very conversational. Lots of free food and wine :)

I'm waiting to hear back to. I just emailed them asking when they would be sending out interview offers.
