  1. I saw your message on Studypal. I clicked but it directed me to the membership page. Do I need to have a premium membership for that? Cuz I am using the normal one.
  2. yeah. My username is Soheila
  3. Barron's official guide, Manhattan series for verbal and Quant, Math Review, Magoosh entire quant and verbal videos, a quiz book for RC and TC downloaded from Chinese website (I found it very useful), Barron's 800 essential words for GRE (using Memrise platform). I am planning to take the test by the end of august.

    GRE plan

    I wanna buy Crunchprep GRE package. Is any international student here who uses this one?or any other package?
  5. I will start working at this cancer research institute from this November to the time that I will be accepted and leave the country.
  6. Do you think If I apply one year later and get better scores in my TOEFL and GRE, the chance of my admission will be increased? I also want to start working in a research institute in 2 months.

  8. Thank u so much. About Cornll's BBS program, since 3 years ago I have been studding papers published by Professor Delisa whose research is on optimization of recombinant protein productions on bacterial cell wall and this in fact is my research interest. He is joint faculty of biomedical engineering and BBS. At first I wanted to apply for biomedical engineering so that I can choose to work with professors on protein engineering and biopharmaceuticals research, then I checked faculty profiles and found out that many of them are joint faculties. The reason for my application to Cornell is that professor Delisa, Putnam and many others at this department are pioneers of therapeutic recombinant pros and antibodies. In addition, this field is somehow biological engineering and there are few bioscience graduate programs whose faculties are joint in this field. The only other schools are UT Austin and Dartmouth. (I may be wrong though; if u have any comment about this, I'd be happy to hear). Is it important to know anything in detail when u wanna choose a research area for interview? Are we expected to know all experiments or understanding background information suffice?
  9. I can retake my TOEFL but the problem is that deadlines are approaching and I have to take my GRE at 14th November and I dont have time for another TOEFL exam before December. Do you think I can take it after deadline and then submit my score?
  10. In my country the number of lab rotations is not like US. We learn many techniques and do experiments in one practical lab course which includes many techniques. for example, I learned these techniques and skills in cell culture, genetic engineering and biochemistry lab. Genetic engineering Lab: Molecular cloning in Fungi and bacterial system. (all steps from preparing competent cells, ligation, transformation, miniprep, midiprep), DNA extraction, RNA extraction, Cdna synthesis, Primer design, conventional PCR, Real-time PCR Biochemistry Lab: Western blotting, Protein purifications (by different types of chromatography systems). Cell culture lab: Common techniques of mammalian cell culture + DNA transfection Recommendation letters from: - my supervisor, my advisor, 2 professors that I passed some courses in their classes. - One that is corresponding author of my published paper and book chapter. - One from my undergrad school who is a known professor of radiation biology field.
  11. Do u mean working as a RA after my graduation or something? I just graduated at April 2016 and I have not worked in a specific research institute or lab cause there were no time slot between my Bsc and MSc. I passed my practical courses through different lab rotations which means spending a whole semester in the lab, but for my MSc thesis I was completely focused on my research project for 1 year working in the lab.
  12. International student from Iran – graduated from reputed universities in Iran BSc: Medical Radiation Science – Shiraz University of Medical Sciences MSc: Medical Biotechnology – Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran GPA: 3.9 for both my BSc and MSc GRE: will take in November 14th TOEFL = 94 Research Experience: completely familiar with molecular biology techniques and work on my thesis project for 1 year at the lab. - Attended to many workshops Publications: 1 in JTB as the first author (IF = 2.1), one chapter book of computational biology published in in Wiley (as a co-author), another manuscript under review in which I am the first author. LOR: 5 professors from my Msc studies and 1 professor of my undergrad who knew me very well at the time and will support me a lot. (1 of my professors is working in NIH and one in drug design company at Washington DC. I have chosen programs whose research focus are on molecular bioscience and biopharmaceuticals. Current List: Cornell (BBS) Rice (Biochemistry) Georgetown (Biochemistry and molecular biology) George Washington (Biomedical science) Maryland-college park (BBS) Wisconsin-Madison (Pharmaceutical Science) UCSF (BBS) WashU (Biology and Biological Sciences) University of Florida (Pharmaceutical Science) Northwestern (Biotechnology, Systems & Synthetic Biology) Please give me any comment if I need to look for less competitive programs to apply. P.S. My brother is a lecturer at Cornell university as a faculty.

  14. But the professors who replied me did not copy and paste a template. Their replies were nice and they didn't refer me to FAQ pages.
