  1. Would really appreciate if anyone would be willing to look over my statement of purpose in exchange for my feedback! Have experience as a tutor and have wrote several personal statements and cover letters.
  2. Undergrad Institution: R1, Private, Top 30 school in the USMajor(s): B.S. Microbiology, B.A. Business, B.A. ChemistryMinor(s): Chinese LiteratureGPA in Major: 3.96/4.0Overall GPA: 3.96/4.0Position in Class: Top 2%Type of Student: International Asian GRE Scores (revised/old version): Did not take the GREQ:V:W:B:Research Experience: I've done research for around 2 and a half years in a virology lab. I've had two poster presentations, and expect to have a second author paper published by the end of my senior year. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Dean's List all semesters, Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society, Continuing Student Scholarship, All-Academic Honors in my Athletics LeaguePertinent Activities or Jobs: Tutor, TA, Resident Advisor and work as the director for a non-profit organization focused on education.Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: I was in the army for three years as a commissioned officer before attending undergrad in the US. Also an NCAA Division III swimmer.Special Bonus Points: I've taken three graduate level immunology and virology courses in my school and scored highly on all of them. I think I'll be able to get two strong LOR's, not sure about the last one. Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: I took an average of 28 credits a semester and am doing a triple major if that demonstrates good time management and effort. I didn't take the GRE because I was asked to apply for the Rhodes Scholarship and focused on that instead, didn't make it, unfortunately. A lot of the apps asked about publications, but because my lab hasn't submitted the manuscript yet, and its a paper that's taken over 2 years to gather data for, I'm not sure how to express this. Applying to Where: Microbiology and Immunology PhD programs, preferably with a focus on Immunotherapy. My schools are limited because of the GRE, but I'm also prepared to take a gap year if necessary.
