KAUSTBIOSCIENCE, Masters (F17)Accepted via Website on 23 May 2017 U23 May 2017
  • good day everyone. I have been accepted at KAUST I had all the three interviews. my nationality is Saudi. my degree was obtained from the US The first interview (Academic via Skype) went very well, admission committee really went through my application and my CV and they have seen everything. they ask about everything they are interested in or need further explanation. like (How come you had a gap year) what is your ultimate dream/goal of course all of this in regards to your academic year and what was my research during undergrad school. it took around 30 mins, the professor who interviewed me was amazing. 1- he wanted me to speak about myself. 2- asked various things about what I do now and everything about me academically. 3- he asked me few easy science questions maybe to check my knowledge. the second interview was about a 2 weeks later, it was a personal interview via skype. they really want to know more about you. they want to know about what you do during your free time. i think it took around 7-10 mins nothing special. they asked me about what i do at my free time and i answered by saying that I play video games ( how stupid can a person be?) anyway, I think they liked me. the third interview ( face to face ) at KAUST, it was a mix of personal and academic interview. we sat at a conference room with two professors. they asked about things regarding my academic background and my personal and they asked about what I do at my free time and I answered the same thing before, video games even though I keep up with the latest research publication and study from time to time ( again, how stupid can a person be?). it took around 10-15 mins. overall it went very bad to me but I received my application decision! which was an acceptance and they have given me 14 days to accept or refuse.. few days later after I accepted I received a medical form and a personal form where I had to admit my legal docu*ents like Saudi national ID (equal to passport) and a photograph. the medical docu*ent covered everything and I had to put a medical report about every individual medical problem I had, I didn't have any medical problem so no medical report was uploaded.I should mention that it took me about 40-50 mins to get a temporary pass from KAUST and reach the building where the interview was held so you should arrive at least an hour before the interview to make sure you're there on time. I don't want to share false information. this is why I didn't mention how I thought the interviewers felt when they heard my answers. overall, you guys should'nt be worried to much. your academic background will take care of you. if you were not accepted then it's really not the end of the world. I am sure many other places will be interested in you. interviewers know that you want to impress them and you may not provide the perfect answer don't worry they know that you didn't have important interviews to worry so much about like the ones you will have. be yourself! anyway if anyone had further questions I will provide as much support and answers as I can. I will be checking this post regularly for a week to provide answers as soon as possible. just put R4 somewhere so I can know. I wish you guys the best of luck and looking forward to see ALL of you next fall. Good luck!

  • Although I have attempted to contact the department a number of times to find out my status, no one is answering the phone. I have also tried to send emails, but I received no response. As the due date to notify international students of admissions was May 15th, I assume they are given two weeks to accept an Admitted decision. I also assume that after two weeks, VTech will send another round of decisions.

  • Was rejected after being waitlisted for 70 days. 82% GPA in my last 2 years. Undergrad degree completed at UofT. I have relevant research experience and provided thee references (2 academic and 1 professional). Was notified that the reason for my rejection was due to following "strange reason": "students have not declined their acceptances and there is no space for new students to be admitted into the program at this time". My personal statement was incredibly specific, and well focused.

Status1 Key: A: American; U: International, with US degree; I: International, without US degree; O: Other; ?: Unknown.
