What Happens After I Submit My Application?

In the month of December, all applications and supporting materials that have been received are read and reviewed by a Committee of Faculty Reviewers, who then meet to discuss and decide on those students whom the Biophysics Program Chair(s) and Program Administrator will invite to visit Harvard and the Biophysics Program as part of our annual Recruitment Visit Weekend, The Biophysics Program confers with the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to receive approval for the proposed list of admitted students. The annual Recruitment Visit Weekend generally takes place in the last few weeks of February or the first few weeks of March. Official notification of admission into the Biophysics Program comes from the Office of the Dean of GSAS.
