Do they tell you the detail schedual and the professor you will meet?

Also haven't heard from Stanford Biophysics, but I saw one interview posted on the results search around December 20...

Yeah I was a little skeptical of that post since the biosciences web page says they will start contacting people at the beginning of this week. Seems like it was either a rare case, or a fake post. If I don't hear by the end of tomorrow I plan to email.

Has anyone received a rejection from Rockefeller/know if they're done sending interview invites? From previous years, it looks like interviews came out all at once around this time of year, and then the next day rejections came out. But I haven't seen any rejections on the results page and only 4 interviews? 

I'm holding out on scheduling another interview until I know about Rockefeller!

Just got a breakdown of events planned. The professors will be the ones you listed in the initial response email.

Yep, back on the MIT hype train

@fitzgradschool @furiusfrutecake

Hey guys. My interview weekend is next weekend. I heard back from UCLA Molecular Biology IDP at the end of December.

On their website, they state that they have interviews in Jan, Feb, and March. Is it possible they'll extend more offers for interviews or do you think they've already emailed everyone?

Just got mine as well.  I actually thought that they sent everything already.  Nice to have some closure though.

Does anyone know if USC PIBBS (not sure if applying to the DSR program within PIBBS makes a difference) is done sending out invites? On their website it looks like PIBBS has two recruitment sessions, one in January and one in March?

I am also waiting to hear back from Stanford Biosciences (SCBRM)?  It seems like other departments within the biosciences have sent out invites but I haven't seen anyone from that specific program say they have heard anything yet...

From an email to current MIT Biology grad students (about helping recruit the new class):

The Admissions Committee decided to invite 102 students to open house to interview. These invitations went out Saturday.

I'm not 100% sure that this means no more invites will be sent out, but I suspect that it might. Sorry guys.

Annoying that the person I spoke with told me otherwise, but that gives me hope :)

Hmm, interesting - I wonder why the administrator told me that they were not finished sending invites. Let's just go under the impression that they are done, and hopefully be pleasantly surprised if it turns out they're not.

Hey guys! I applied Stanford Mic/Immunology and saw one interview invite. Is it bad form to email them now and ask if all invites have already been sent out? Thanks!
