    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    So, since one of our members just got accepted into a program (the first known one for the season), I think this thread is in order! :)

    Good luck everybody. I hope we'll all get into a school we're excited about at the end of this interview season! :luck:

    You can either post here or PM me. Please include the type of program, date the offer was extended, and who you heard from (POI, grad secretary, etc.) so that I can keep this first post as up to date as possible.

    List is updated, and it looks like the first acceptance was 1/23, not 1/26. :)
