When Is The Program Interview/ Visit Weekend Taking Place?

The Biophysics Program holds an annual Recruitment Visit/ Interview Weekend in late January or early February each year as part of its admissions process for the following fall entry. During the Covid pandemic, interviews have been held remotely, with an in-person visit taking place later in the spring for those students being offered admission.

The Biophysics Program's Admissions Decision Committee makes a decision on those applicants we want to invite to visit the program.  We then invite admitted students to come and visit the University, to meet with current students and faculty members in both formal and informal events and through individual meetings with those faculty members in whose research the student is interested.  The visit weekend includes meals and outings with current students, a Student & Faculty Reception and Dinner, the Annual Mini-Symposium and Poster Session, and usually an excursion to a show at a local venue in Boston on the last evening of the visit.    The Recruitment Visit/ Interview Weekend for students admitted to the Biophysics Program for entry in Fall of 2022 has already taken place. Dates for the Fall 2023 admissions interviews and visit weekend are to be determined.

Please Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions and considerations, Interviews for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 years were held as virtual events.  For 2023, interviews will most likely be held virtually, followed by an in-person Recruitment Weekend event, pending infection rate data and public health dictates.
