I'm currently doing my Bachelor's (BTech. - Final year) in Biotechnology in Manipal Institute of Technology, India. I'm quite keen on applying for graduate programs later this year, colleges like UCB, UPenn, Columbia, UCSD, Cornell and also considering Yale, MIT, Stanford and the works. I will be giving my GRE exam shortly and also have completed a 2 month internships in a pharmaceutical company and a premier university (Indian Institute of Tech) in India. I will also be interning from January 2017 at the Centre of Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB, Hyderabad), another renowned lab. I had previously briefly worked on a project in college to devise a diagnostic kit and am currently working on another (in collaboration with the Department of Virus Research, Manipal). I am hopeful of publishing a paper on the latter, sometime later this year. Being from India, I'm severely lost with regards to the requirements expected from top universities as mentioned above in terms of GRE scores, GPA requirements and lab experience & LoRs in general. Given my lab experience and a 8.5 CGPA (Indian standard) without publications, am I being realistic in considering these colleges for my master's? Would working in few more well-established labs and applying next year improve my chances?
I am currently in second year of my B.A in international relations. I am studying in India. I wish to go abroad for masters preferably UK or US or Germany. I am really getting confused about the courses links on the internet and would really like to have a few opinions on the best universities in these places for studying IR or Human rights. Also I would like to know about the scholarship programs available and the requirements for them!
I am currently in a masters program in the US and have accepted to join the PhD program in the same department and in the same University. I am an international student and am considering to go back home during the break. But I heard that you cant return to the US more than month prior to the start date specified on the I-20. But I was planning on returning early to get a head start in my research. I want to know if I can return back early considering I will be in the same university and just getting a "change of level" in my I-20 or I will have to stay home for the break and return only one month prior to the start of the program?
