  1. Neither, just go in have a conversation about the program, your interest, their work. Make a good impression of course. If you get them again during intervew, your job would be way easier. Good Luck!
  2. You are making my point. You can take my message as "coming to the US has now become more dependent on external funding because of Covid". Keep also in mind how national institution like the NIH is keeping greater track of who is getting funded from "non US sources". Overall it promotes a bad enviroment, not to mention the racial part. So, I restate my point: I hope for your sake you are not: 1. An international student, I dont have anything against them(they are just more Americans who are fighting for the spots, more American means more potential funding for the school)
  3. Although they may receive more applicantions, the schools are likely going to extend offers to those who live near by, since there is a greater chance of them attending. So I hope for your sake you are not: 1. An international student, I dont have anything against them(they are just more Americans who are fighting for the spots, more American means more potential funding for the school) 2. Trying to go to school on the opposite coast *** I feel bad for international student since things were already difficult for them.
  4. No, I am saying is that there is only two outcome. You get in or you don't. Everyone has the same outcomes. There is too much "unknown" with the application strength, it depends on who they want in their program. You may think you are a good fit, or have a strong application but they may not, in the end that's all that matters. So unless you ask them directly how strong you application is, any self evaluation is wrong.
  5. If you dont like you scores don't send it. You are chances as as good as anybody else 50/50. You get in or you don't. I think the only thing they care about is really fit. So when you write your essay make sure you emphize on fit, yes they know how good their program are, but how do you add to it, I dont think they want all "A's" student because that does not tell me that you can think. They want a diverse cohort, people who can support each other and not just different flavors of ice cream. Finally best of luck, leaving Europe during the pandemic might be hard but I hope you end up
  6. Start with where you want to live and go from there is you are unsure
  7. Research experiene matters more than GPA, I would work for 1 more year before applying! GOOD LUCK
  8. You stats look really good but there is more to an application than that. If you are applying this cycle, I would focus really on fit. if you are not, I would explore a bit more with your research. Biostat programs are well funded and some program might not require you to take biology classes, you would just handle the data.
  9. I can look at your stuff! I am a microbiologist tho but I have some biochemistry background
  10. we back baby! I was NK Advocate, I made the PREP thread 2 years ago
  11. There are plenty of examples online but I would advise against it. As long as you answer the question from the prompt, it is all that matters. You should use the statement of purpose to show a part of yourself. Getting too much input from others, may skew your choices.
  12. Google: Good question to ask PI, see which one fits you best, go from there
  13. Sit down, Write out pros and cons for each choice, then talk it over with loved ones/family/mentors, then decide what YOU want to do. Nobody knows what to do because this is the first time any of us has been put in this situation. At the end, just be confortable with the choice you end up making. Good luck!
