rejections:

-Johns Hopkins BME
-Georgetown Microbiology/Immunology

I'm a tad confused about the pattern of being turned down by bioengineering programs, but accepted to immunology. This mechanical engineer is feeling quite loved by the biology community as opposed to the biomedical engineers. Who knew? I'm not complaining, though. At Stanford/Harvard/Hopkins, I'd still have access to the computational courses in other programs, and do my thesis in the area that I'd apply these things to. That said, MIT BE is a more complete package, having immunology faculty as well as the coursework in one bundle.

Overall, I'm thrilled with my options. Now comes the hard part; deciding.

I have applied to a bioengineering/computationl/systems biology program. What I can tell is that competition has been very fierce. In some instances I have been very puzzled as to what particular commitees were looking for. I have a strong background in both EE and molecular biology, but the patterns of acceptances leave me scratching my head.

Accepted: UCSF/UCB Bioengineering, Hopkins BME

Rejected: Caltech BE, Harvard SysBio

Maybe: MIT CSBi

They offered admission to 13 at Harvard SysBio, MIT is looking to fill 8 spots. They only interviewed 14 at MIT and kept another 10 on a waitlist.

Best of luck choosing a program, you still have some very nice options .

Well obviously the choice should be UW MCB then. ;)

Good luck, Wedge. I don't envy you the decision.
