  1. Meghan, you are asking if having experience in industry microbiology is good for a graduate microbio program. I'm not even going to answer that.
  2. I did my UG at UGA at the CCRC which had heavy plant bio focus. I'm not really on that side of bio but my first research experiences was in that building. Its a beautiful campus and that CCRC building I have a lot of memories studying and working there. I think Uni of TN might have a program also that collaborates with ORNL in Oak Ridge with plant bio/microbio focus. Also Cold Spring Harbor has a plant bio program thats pretty up there????
  3. I see you are west coast and applied to CUNY in nyc. You chose only 1 program in NYC and not more? Does CUNY have faculty you want to work with?
  4. looking at NYU sackler for PhD biomedical sciences and it seems the faculty are very neuro focused. Is this a neuro focused program?
  5. Hey, you are fine. Sometimes its a lot worst when you over think it. BUT you are in an academic setting, this is where you learn and explore. Your PI hopefully is understanding and just wanted to see what you are capable of. Sure you didn't get it how you wanted, maybe complete botch but be honest and let your PI know. You only grow from there!
  6. I believe Tufts university in Boston has a program Nutritional Sciences. Check it out
  7. Sorry, the templated was copied and pasted from a previous year. I will go back and edit that. edit. how come i can't change the main post?

  9. Alright, I don't think there is a thread for the 2019-2020 application cycle yet (to enter fall 2020). If there is, mods please delete. I did see a neuro application for 2020 but this one is for all biomedical/biological umbrella'ed programs. Applications should start to open in a few weeks so I hope everyone has started somewhat to get their things together. This is a template that I've taken from previous years to carry over for this year. Good luck to all who are applying! Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school, such as big state, lib arts, ivy, technical, foreign (wha
  10. I'll be happy to read it. Shoot me a PM!
  11. i have not submitted but my SoP has become my baby for the past month or two. I think what helped me most is taking the time to write it over a month or so rather than try to write it in a week. My process was that I spent the beginning of summer drafting it. This is back in May or so of this year. I drafted it re-read it and thought it was good. I let it sit for a month before returning to it. Then mid-summer I spent more time on it, every morning at work I would read and tweak things. I looked at helpful tips on this forum and on the internet which helped me add things and remove
  12. I'm guessing it gets hot right when applications start opening in September. Does it pick up? coming here to find useful information and help but seems kinda dead right now?
  13. 2 questions. 1: for letters of recommendations. I know who I have in mind. Applications for most of the schools I'm applying to open in early/mid September. Its currently mid august. When should I let my LoT know that I chose them as LoT? Should I let them know now through email or then follow up in 4 weeks to let them know right before i send out the requests? Or should I wait closer to when the application opens? 2: in the statement of purpose. For programs that use acronyms. Like Schools name, BCMB (biochemistry molecular biology). Should I spell out the entire name or can I use
  14. I have a list of schools that do not require GRE exams for Biomedical/Biological Science PhD. Now some of the schools I have an idea of how competitive they are but other schools not so much. I wanted to break them down to see which schools can be my safety schools and which ones are a bit more competitive. After so I can go back and look at the faculty in each of these schools to see what interests me and narrow down my choices. Again this is Biomedical/Biological Sciences PhD program Boston University Emory University (Atlanta, Georgia) B
