  1. So I've been accepted to Michigan State and University of Georgia for their microbiology PhD programs, but John's Hopkins accepted me to their Masters in Microbiology after rejecting me from their PhD program. Would it be worth it to spend the extra years going to get the masters so I could get into better PhD programs or is it better to just pick between the options I have? I like both of their programs and they're a good fit for me, but I don't know how much the name will hold me back going forward. Please help!
  2. I'm leaving for an interview weekend this weekend for a microbiology phd program and I haven't been able to find recent grants that a POI I'll be interviewing with has currently. Is it inappropriate to ask about what grants she has funded right now since that is connected to how I'll be paid to be in that lab? I'm only asking because a lot of her publications are from a while ago and I want to know whether she has enough active grants (and therefore active projects) in my field of interest but I'm worried that it will come across as me asking about money too early on. Thoughts?

    Michigan State BMS Presentation??

    Yeah I just put one slide at the end talking about a few different research interests in there. Do you think it'd be okay if I emailed them a new version of my ppt though? I'm just deleting two of my slides to save a little time but since they asked for the ppt so long ago I'm not sure. Do you think it'd be better to just click through those slides quickly and hope no one notices?
  4. I got invited to Michigan State's BMS interview weekend from the 10-12th of January and I'm looking forward to it, but they ask each interviewee to do an 8 minute presentation in front of current BMS faculty, grad students, and current applicants. Anyone have any tips for this? I already made my presentation and sent it in, but I just wanted to see if anyone had an idea of what the presentation is going to be like. Thanks!
