So I applied to NIH Post-Bac program and got contacted by a p.i. I had a phone interview which was brief but very informative. The project is new and will be a great opportunity for me to invest 2 years in since that's what I was told they require. They said they were "interviewing other applicants' and they will inform all of us of their decision by middle march. I want to know if my chances are good because I did get a phone interview or do they do those often? I made sure to follow up with additional questions after the interview to reiterate my interest. I am really anxious! Also I am a recent graduate so I am ready to begin upon being offered the position since she informed me that they want to begin as soon as possible once they make their decisions.
