Hey everyone! A little bummed that I just saw that this is a thing now!! I applied for the fall 2018 cycle to 5 schools all in Jersey, Philly, and NYC area but not even an interview So far I have shadowing hours with a cancer GC, experience working as a teacher assistant at a school for children with disabilities, and am finishing up my BS degree in biology this May. I was really hoping to get into grad school right away to avoid a gap year, but based off what I read on the 2018 form, it seems I need a lot more experience before re-applying!!
I know I have to retake my GRE (141V, 144Q, 3W). I'm not the greatest at standardized testing, so any suggestions on how to improve my scores? I am also not sure how I should spend my gap year? I was thinking about applying for lab assistant jobs, but I'm really not sure what would be best to improve my application.
Looking forward to hearing from everyone and so glad I found this forum for this application cycle!
