    NIH PREP 2019-2020 Applicants unite

    To future applicants: You will not hear anything from these schools(Harvard, Uchicago) unless you are admitted or interviewed. So keep that in mind when you choose with schools to apply. Had I known it would be like this I would have selected different schools. Feel free to apply to them if you still wish.

    I think I know how you feel but there is not an exact formula of GPA/research experience. Different schools want different things that's why you apply to more than one(try to contact the schools and ask them where can you improve your application). In your case, 12 might have been too much, quality is more important than quantity. NIH IRTA is pretty much first come first served and it doesn't have to do with your credentials. As long as you think research the right path for you, you will persevere and finally obtain it. Look into some lab tech jobs if that's an option. I wish you the best of luck.

    I don't want to be back here, def not for that! too much anxiety and unnecessary personal profile comparisons. Yall have a good life, maybe I'll meet some of yall at ABRCMS. I feel like they should have an NIH prep meet and greet. Message to future applicants: don't lose hope, it may seem like the obvious choice to make at times but don't! This route may not work but if you keep trying, you will def be a better position for success. NK Advocate out! *mic drop*

    It seems like Tufts is hosting 2 interviews one with a potential mentor one with the director. Why? IDK.

    Got out of the interview this morning. I lost my train of thought some many times I wouldn't be surprised if they thought I had some kind of mental disability. They were still pretty responsive to my comments/questions/jokes, so maybe it wasn't so bad.

    Thinking about getting into Harvard...

    It's too early to have a particular grad school in mind, people change drastically in college. Just focus on your grades and building a good resume. Idk what that would look like in your field but look around.

    What questions were yall asked during interviews?? Also, can we all come back to this site on April 15 to tell where/what were are doing? so that people in the same area can meet/roommates!

    I agree! What I am saying this that as urm that are moving in positions of power, we should not be content with just expanding the frontier of human knowledge. And that we more than anyone should look back to help others (that can take place in many forms, I am not telling you should become Nelson Mandella or Mother Theressa). That's just my point of view but everyone is free to do as they wished. My thoughts reflect upon my interactions with the African American community. I am not sure how other communities are but I am always willing to learn.
