    Does it worth to volunteer for a summer research opportunity?

    My GPA is right at 3.0... LOL... I plan to talk to my PI in the middle of July to see if I can stay in the lab next year. If I get a position in the research lab, I will apply for MS and Ph.D. one more time for Fall 2019 season. And you are right about the research opportunity in the One-year program. It's not thesis-based, and I possibly won't have any hands-on experience in a research lab, definitely won't have my project. I lean toward the research opportunity that I'm doing for the summer because the PI is introducing a new research direction to the lab and I can be part of the team. Is there a chance to compromise my low GPA in an application if I work on a project in a research lab for a year?

    OPT or MS after my undergrad?

    I am still trying to impress my PI at this time. I plan to talk about being a lab tech/research assistant in his lab next year in July. I am not sure if I can use a research lab experience to overcome my low GPA. I guess that's the question I want to ask.

    No, I used CPT for the summer research fellowship.
  4. I got accepted by the Lee Summer Fellowship at the Southern California Research Center for ALPD and Cirrhosis for this summer. Since I graduated with a bachelor degree in biochem, I'm thinking to work in the research lab for a year as a research associate if it is possible. Does anybody know what the possibility for an undergraduate to work in a research lab following summer research is? I also got accepted with a one-year master degree in global health. Does it worth to give up the Master degree and work in a research lab? I want a Ph.D. degree in the future. I need something to build my resume because of my poor GPA. Please write any related thought that you have. Thanks!
  5. I major in biochemistry and graduated with a bachelor degree in Spring 2018. I got a poor GPA (3.0) and a little bit of academic research for 4 semesters, 2 for one semester long and 1 for a year. All of them didn't get to a published paper by the end. I got a research opportunity at the University of Southern California this summer and I'm really excited about this. If there is a chance, I want to be a lab tech in that research lab for next year, which means I need an OPT for that. Also, I accepted an offer at the Tufts University for a one-year master program in infectious diseases and global health. I am trying to decide between these two options and trying to add some impressive stuff to my resume so that I can get into a Ph.D. program (hopefully) in Fall 2019. Which one should I choose?
