  2. Hi All, I'm new to this and will be applying for Fall 2018 and thought I'd post to see what you guys have to say about my chances at top-10 programs (ideally trying to land at Duke, Stanford, UCSF/Berkeley, UMich, or BU). I'm mainly worried that my UG GPA is going to hurt me. School - middle tier private for both UG and MS Major - BIOE for UG and MS Minor - n/a GPA (major) - 3.55/4.0 (UG) 3.7/4.0 (MS) GPA (overall) - 3.51/4.0 3.7/4.0 (MS) Demographics/Background - White, 22 GRE scores: Q: 164 V: 156 W: 5.0 LOR - 2 very strong letters, looking for a third very strong LOR but may have to settle for an okay one. Research Experience - 3.5 years Publications/Abstracts/Presentations 2 first author and 2 second author publications all in journals w/ impact factor > 5. I've presented at 4 conferences in the US. Awards/Honors/Recognition I've been given over $25,000 of internal grant funding from 4 different successful grant applications. I've also spent a summer working for a large pharmaceutical company. Research Interests Microfluidic Large Scale Integration (mLSI), single cell proteomics and genomics, medical imaging.
