Brown UniversityChemistry, PhD (F15)Interview via E-mail on 5 Jan 2015 A30 Jan 2015
  • I had an informal interview with 1 of 2 POI at the beginning of Jan. He invited me after I had emailed him expressing interest. It didn't go bad, but I definitely do not feel I stood out. I noticed there are 2 acceptances to Brown for Chemistry PhDs for F15. Has anybody heard from them about other results? Waitlist, reject, etc?
