  1. 2017 EEB Applicant Profiles & Admissions Results

    I guess; but they might be having a waitlist.
  2. 2017 EEB Applicant Profiles & Admissions Results

    I posted the rejection for OEB, the PI let me know on e-mail when I inquired. Sorry for not clarifying that on survey.
  3. 2017 EEB Applicant Profiles & Admissions Results

    Congrats for both alexzebra!!! Still to hear from any school...
  4. 2017 EEB Applicant Profiles & Admissions Results

    Thanks for letting us know that dustonthedash. Hoping to hear something that time. Good luck all!
  5. 2017 EEB Applicant Profiles & Admissions Results

    Anyone got interview invites for EEB programs and have their dates? No signatures for them in the Results page , is it too early? I am specially interested in Harvard OEB. They seem to send invites in late Jan from their history. Anyone else also waiting out till the late Jan?
  6. 2017 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results

    Anyone has an idea about Harvard OEB interview invites? When do they send those?
  7. 2017 EEB Applicant Profiles & Admissions Results

    Hey, so few EEB applicants this year? and anyone getting interviews?
  8. 2017 EEB Applicant Profiles & Admissions Results

    Undergrad Institution: Autonomous Medical School (India, not very well known) Major(s): Life Sciences (Medical Biotechnology) Minor(s): N/A GPA in Major: First Class Overall GPA:First Class Position in Class: Average Graduate Institution I: Regional University (India, not very well known) Major(s): Biotechnology Minor(s): N/A GPA in Major: Distinction Overall GPA: Distinction Position in Class: Average Graduate Institution II: Top 120 Uni in the World, top 5 in London. Major: Ecology & Evolutionary Biology GPA in Major: Merit Overall GPA: Merit Type of Student: International GRE Scores (revised/old version): Q:152 V:152 W:3 B:650 TOEFL: wave-able Research Experience: Masters Thesis on Computational Microbial Omics, one semester at first grad institution, post graduate research at second grad institution on computational evolutionary genomic, independent research since 3.5 years yielding a poster at a top international workshop with travel grant from the Society for Mathematical Biology and the host institute. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: National Fellowship as an Undergrad, Master's Scholarship from both the GradSchools. Certified for Lectureship in university nationally. Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Interning in local biology education institute to tutor highschool students since I was an Undergrad, particularly, conducted workshops on EEB and theoretical EEB and Biology Olympiad preparatory sessions. Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: I write formally and theoretically developed, extended and explained Sanskrit verses on fantastical evolutionary systems, published on my website as an activity of my virtual Institute for TheorArtistry (ITA:η). This, inter alia, helps me practice my research skills in Theoretical EEB. Special Bonus Points: N/A Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Currently doing independent study (5 OCW courses in pure and applied math and probability/Stats, all Upper Level or Grad) and learning theorem proving (Isabelle/HOL), computation and simulation techniques on my own (R, SciLab/MATLAB, Mathematica) Applying to Where: Harvard University- OEB- Theoretical Evolutionary Biology, Evolutionary Dynamics, Theoretical Population Genetics. (Had good response from a PI there with great research fit) Searching for schools with theoretical EEB advisors for applying next cycle with a better profile. Any suggestions of schools and guidelines to improve my current and future applications? Thanks a lot. Hr.Gore
  9. GRE Biology Subject Test

    Have a look at OCWs Specifically, I suggest UCBerkeley CellBio MolBi and also Biochem , Yale (by Stephen C. Stearns,) EEB; UCBerkeley Intro Bio ( Includes Physiology and a general overview of University Bio) (you may wish to go for a deeper physiology course if you want). Complement this with reading and exercises from Undergrad texts. Use test prep books for learning test taking strategies, if you wish. I am also preparing for it for the 2nd time! PM me if you wish!
  10. Hi GoOutside, I too feel that if you have a PhD in a non-EEB field, it will be hard for you to get into an EEB post doc. Also, if you have an undergrad and possibly an MS in EEB, you should consider applying to top EEB programs the next cycle. If you however can compromise and work in medically centered topics for all your PhD postdoc and thus for your future tenure, you can do it- it will PAY off! However, the stipends at top EEB programs would also be nice ones, so if you get it, it will be good. If you don't get into an EEB program while you pursue your current PhD, finish it. Also, you can search for a lab that has EvoDevo wetlab work and maybe some fieldwork, if that seems to be more relevant to your interests.
  11. Any Fellow Theoretical EEB's?

    I just thought to find people who can empathize with a theoretical evolutionary bio PhD applicant (me). Especially to discuss which schools have great Theoretical EEBists and how to get into them... As I have never been to the US, I would appreciate any insight into the schools that offer theoretical evo bio PhD's, especially the following schools- Harvard OEB, MIT bio-EECS, Stanford Biology, Caltech CMS ( non- bio department there), Berkeley Integrative Bio, UCLA BioMaths/EEB, UCSB ( aiming people behind Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics), Cornell Bio. I would like to know about the academic life at these places, lab cultures etc. My profile is quite plain right now, but I'm hoping some up-time soon- Undergrad: A private university in India ( primarily a med school) Major: Life Sciences Minor: Medical Biotechnology GPA: 3.5 ( one bad patch, but got better grade in Evolution course, maybe the highest in the class) Graduate: A reputed university in India Major: Biotechnology GPA: 3.5 ( had a distinction, so I don't know if this conversion is right) Grad School 2: A top university in London. Major: Ecology & Evolutionary Biology GPA: 3.0 ( had a distinction in BioStats / Bioinfo though) GRE's: will take soon Research Experience: Masters thesis on computational microbial biology at the first gradschool and work on computational mammalian evolutionary genomics at the second grad school ( no pubs yet). Had a poster out of my own work presented at a top international MathBio workshop in the UK with funding from US and UK. Research Interests: Somatic Evolution of Cancer, Language Evolution, General Evolutionary Theory, Developmental Evolution ( any of these will do!) Any suggestions based on my profile are welcome. What schools are 'safe/ fall backs' for me?

    Hi! Being graduated from one of the universities in London as an Indian, I can tell that you have ample opportunities there ( I guess, quite comparable to Boston). Also, the British masters courses have different structure than those in the US. If you feel prepared to jump into thesis within an year and want to follow a fast track to PhD, then King's course is a valid option. As PlanB has said, go for the place that best prepares you for your intended PhD coursework, network and research experience wise. Good luck! And PM me if you need.
