  1. Hello everyone! So, I am re-applying to PhD programs this fall. I am looking into umbrella programs and micro/immuno programs. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for some good lower tier schools to apply to. Right now a lot of my list consists of places like Columbia and Hopkins. I just wanted to apply to as wide a variety as possible. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, -Ash
  2. So I am currently in a master's program, but I am straight up not having a good time. I like the program itself, but a lot of the professors just don't really seem to care. I don't know if its the pandemic or because our coursework is online, but I just feel that I'm not really getting any kind of encouragement or help or anything. They are just kinda doing the bare minimum and a lot of us in the program are just struggling through because of it. I wouldn't graduate until spring 2022. It is a research-based degree and I should wind up with a publication or two from it, and I'm really trying my
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knew of any funding outside of student loans to help fund a master's program. Luckily, my program does offer funding, but it doesn't start until after you have completed your first semester. I know I will be taking out loans to help, but I don't really want to rely solely on them. Since I do receive funding after my first semester, I really just need something to help me out for this coming fall. Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the input! After looking at job outlooks, I should make more than the amount of debt I would be in. But I also want to pursue a PhD, I just haven't gotten in this cycle. I looked into scholarships at the school, but it looked like most of them were either for undergrads or in-state students. I probably just need to dig a little deeper to find something.
  5. Hi! Happy Wednesday! So I was accepted to an online masters program. Unfortunately, it isn't cheap. I don't think I am going to get much funding from the program, and I can't really justify paying that much for it right now. Most people I have talked with said it isn't worth doing without some kind of funding. I was wondering if anyone had some advice or knew of funding opportunities outside of student loans (I already have a good bit out from undergrad.) that I could look into. I have been applying for a few smaller scholarships and looking for jobs that offer tuition reimbursement, and
  6. Hi! I recently got accepted to Purdue University for an online MSE. I just wanted to ask for people's opinions and thoughts on the school or the program. Just anything anyone wants to say about it really. I just want to have a lot to think over before I give them an answer back.
  7. Hi, I emailed the CAMB people yesterday and they replied back within a few hours. I was rejected. "Thank you for your continuing interest in CAMB. We received a record number of applications this year, and the admissions process was exceptionally competitive. Unfortunately, you were not selected for interview. I realize this decision will be received with disappointment. Please know that this is not a negative assessment of your potential to do important and impactful science, but rather a reflection of a limitation in our ability to interview and recruit the many highly qualified candidates i
  8. Same here. I started back running. That helps to clear my mind and just being outside helps me not think as much about it...at least while i'm running.

  10. Happy New Year's Eve everyone! So I applied to graduate school over the fall and submitted my transcript at the time. The courses I was taking were still in progress, so there wasn't a grade posted for those. I graduated from the school, and I was wondering if I should update my applications with an updated transcript. My grades for the fall semester were released after the deadlines. Is it worth updating my transcript or should I just leave my applications as they are?
  11. I also applied to UPenn but I haven't heard anything either.
  12. Hi, does the application status change in the portals? For all the schools I applied to it just says "submitted" and under recent activity it says "payment received". I was wondering if it changes to "under review" or anything before a rejection or interview invite.
  13. I applied to Emory and Vandy also, but I haven't heard anything back either. I just keep checking my email every two minutes. 😂 Good luck to you!
