  1. My degree is in Biology, we only had to have one year of chemistry and one semester of mathematics. I'm thinking it should be fine, and if any schools want me to take the courses before I attend, I can do that.
  2. I have a quick question about recommended pre-req courses. Many schools recommend having 2 semesters of mathematics, and 2 years of chem (general and organic). I only have one semester of mathematics (stats) and I only took intro chem, orgo I and biochem in college. Since the courses are recommended, do you think it will affect my application much? I could take the courses within the next year, but they're expensive, so if you guys think it won't have a big impact then I might not take them.
  3. Thanks for the honesty, the thing is I am having a hard time identifying which schools could be classified as "lower ranked programs". Any suggestions?
  4. Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll go give those a look after work.
  5. @bicsy @biochemgirl67 @immuno91 @HopefulPHD14 Thank you guys so much for these pointers! This is incredibly helpful to get your perspectives on my app. I'm going to dive into my school list now with all this advice. Thanks again!
  6. @Agent Orange Thanks for the response, I'm most interested in studying T-cell biology, but I am also very interested, in general, in molecular/cellular bio and virology. I'll take a closer look at the faculty at the schools I listed, that's great advice. @Ferroportin I thought the program was very interesting because it bridges together different areas of biology and seems incredibly diverse. I'll check out the BMS program though. Thanks for the response. Am I aiming too high with my list of schools? I'm worried that my stats aren't up to the level that these schools a
  7. @glow_gene Just put the thread up, sorry for derailing.
  8. Here's mine: I am having trouble pinpointing where I should apply and how to figure out which schools may be safe for me to apply to and which ones are completely out of reach. I hope to get some insight from those of you on here who are hearing back from your applications in the 2016 cycle, or from previous cycles. I would greatly appreciate any advice!

  9. This may be considered a little early, but I wanted to start the 2017 application profile thread, so here it is! I'm copying the 2016 thread for consistency. Use the following templates to enter your information, before and after you obtain your results, and remember to submit your results at the end of the cycle for posterity and to help the next cohort of applicants HERE.

  10. Hi everyone, sorry if this is out of place, but I'm going to be applying next round for fall 2017. I have read through most of this thread and I am having trouble pinpointing where I should apply and how to figure out which schools may be safe for me to apply to and which ones are completely out of reach. It seems like you all are incredibly knowledgeable about these things at this point, so I would greatly appreciate any advice!

  11. I'm planning on applying to graduate programs for immunology, virology or cancer biology (all extremely interesting to me) and am wondering how I can strengthen my application.
