Basically, they'll admit a group of students into their pH D programs based on how many slots they "think" they need filled, give all of the students funding for a year, and then discard the ones they don't like or don't have long-term funding for with little ceremony.

Completely cruel, and self-serving view towards students by many of the Biology sub-departments (Microbiology, Molecular Plant Sciences, and PPWS are especially bad). Ultimately, you are a dreadful little inconvenience that gets in the way of their hard-hitting research.

Apply elsewhere if you can!
