    2019 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results

    Undergrad Institution: Top 5 Liberal Arts College Major(s): Biology and Mathematics Minor(s): N/A GPA in Major: 4.0 Overall GPA: 4.0 Position in Class: 1/~500 Type of Student: International male GRE Scores (revised/old version): Q: 170 V: 160 W: 5.5 Research Experience: 1.5 years of microbial evolution (computational) at school. Finalizing analyses right now 2 years of systems biology (computational) starting in summer 2017 but continued the research remotely. First-author publication under review 1.5 years of evolutionary theory research somewhere else, but also continued remotely. First-author publication in prep Summer experience (experimental + computational) in a super famous lab in microbial evolutionary genetics LORs Got to read one of mine--really good. People from a summer program admissions at Princeton told me that my other two recommendations were extremely strong. Also got another one from the famous lab I worked in. SOP Not sure--included a specific potential research topic (might be a good or a bad thing) Awards/Honors/Recognitions: (Within your school or outside?) - Multiple fellowships and awards (~12 school-wide awards in total) from school - Summer fellowship Pertinent Activities or Jobs: (Such as tutor, TA, SPS officer etc...) - TA for 100-, 200-, and 300-level biology and math courses - Math tutor for college and high school students Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help I don't think soSpecial Bonus Points: (Such as connections, grad classes, famous recommenders, female or minority status etc...): From an under-represented country in science , other related minority status too, and strong connection with two top grad programs I am applying toAny Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Straight from undergrad (don't know if it's good or bad either) Applying to Where: Princeton EEB; Harvard, OEB; UChicago, Microbiology; MIT, Microbiology; MIT-WHOI Joint Program; Columbia, Biology; UCSD-Scripps; CSHL; Caltech, Geobiology; Stanford, Biology (could've applied to mid-tier programs, but most have VERY limited funding for international students sadly--I understand my chance is really slim and am quite freaking out right now).
