Hi everyone!

Is there anyone who will visit Rockefeller for an interview in February? I wonder if they send any email about the interview committee.

I'm interviewing at NYU Sackler in a couple weeks and wondered from those who have already interviewed, when did you get your schedule? The only thing I've heard from them is the time of my flight and I was just wondering what to expect for the actual interview, schedule, dress code, etc.

I'm also curious to know how the Sackler interview went. What was the atmosphere? Do people wear suits or is sports jacket/slacks ok?

I wore a blazer with pants and seemed to fit in okay. Majority of the other students wore blazers and something a bit more on the formal side. 

The interviews were great. Prof's were not there to grill you. The atmosphere was really nice. Had a few mixers and time to talk with faculty and current students.

Do you know what the acceptance rate is post interview? like how many applied, how many are interviewed, how many are offered interviews and how many ultimately matriculate? I know some schools post this information but I couldn't find one for NYU.

For NYU Sackler? No. They didn't give that information out. 

I know around 20+ people are invited for interview each round.

Officially committed to University of Notre Dame Biology Ph.D. Program this fall! Looking forward to opening a new chapter in my life! Good luck everyone on your interviews around the country! Go Irish!

Congrats and welcome to ND! I believe we chatted at the dinner Saturday night, fellow Texan.

I met someone this past weekend who heard back from Scripps and will be interviewing at the end of the month. 

I just looked online, and the interview dates for script are (for La Jolla campus) Feb 22-25th and Mar 1-4th. So I'm assuming if I haven't  heard anything from them at this point, I'm taking that as a rejection

I’m a domestic student and applied to UMiami for Biochem and Molecular Bio and UMBC BioSciences and haven’t heard anything back yet. 

Hi - have you heard from UMiami? They notified that they extended their deadline for document submission until 1/31. I followed up again a week ago for an update - but still nothing. Just curious to know whats going on. Thanks!

Nope, still no word from them.  Since I submitted my application, I've heard nothing from them.

we are in the same boat :/ 

It is a bit nerve wrecking since I have heard from all other programs, but fingers crossed they might be going at their own pace. If I get any word, I will keep you posted.

An acceptance and a rejection on the same day (last Friday) :P My school email system literally decided that the rejection letter from Columbia was junk so I had to fish it out of the bin. But I feel good enough about my interview experience and subsequent acceptance at DGP and kinda expected a rejection from Columbia (since I hadn't heard from them) so that doesn't hurt at all ;P

Got a mixed bag of results today. Got official acceptance in Harvard BBS today!

But also got a rejection from UCSF DSCB. I did not really enjoy the prospect of living in SF while there, so I guess it worked out...

How did you hear from Harvard? Did they send you the official acceptance letter?

I don't blame you for not wanting to live in SF.
