  1. Hi guys, Received two offers from Yale (Computational biology and bioinformatics) and Penn (Genomics and computational biology), I'd like to do research in human genetics and complex diseases using computational/statistical methods. Still hesitated between these two programs, anybody familiar with the GCB program? Based on my knowledge, many professors under this program are doing wet-labs and professors doing interdisciplinary research are usually assistant prof. Could anyone give me any suggestion on the choice between these two programs? Thanks a lot!!!!
  2. I totally agree. What's weird is that a director of my applied program called one of my referrers and asked why my referrer thought I am a great candidate and I seemed to be just fine based on my other application material. Besides, do you have any advice for my safety picks this year? Thank you so much.
  3. I have taken three CS courses, C, Java Programming, Data Structure and Algorithm, I think maybe it's not enough...My second research experience is developing a tool in Java, maybe it kind of make up for this?
  4. I don't know. I guess it's because one of my recommenders wrote something bad about me... I didn't get quite well with her...
  5. Hi all, I have applied for several Ph.D. programs in bioinformatics last year, received no offer....sad... I am planning to apply again. Undergrad Institution: Peking University (anybody know it in US?). Major(s): Biology (Aim for bioinformatics with a focus on human genetics)Minor(s): GPA in Major: Overall GPA: 3.63 Position in Class: 15%? not sure...Type of Student: International FemaleGRE Scores (revised/old version):Q: 170 V: 154 W: 3.0 (I know it is really low... tried my best...) B: Research Experience: Eight months at a molecular wet lab, cooperating
  6. Have any international students heard from UCLA bioinformatics program?
