  1. I'm glad it all worked out for you! I am waiting to hear from two of my top programs and I am worried about having to reschedule them but being busy the other weekend they offer.
  2. How are you scheduling 9 interviews? Have you just been lucky and they are all on different weekends?
  3. Thank you! I will likely need it!
  4. Thank you! I also just got an email back from someone in their admissions department that it is fixed.
  5. Thank you! I contacted admissions and they got back to me that there was a glitch in their software, but it is now fixed.
  6. Yes, I am aware of the Dec 1st deadline. Today is Dec 1, and it is not yet 11:59PM . That is my confusion.
  7. I just went to submit my application to JHU BCMB program and was told the program was no longer accepting applications. The home page of the application states "If you are applying to multiple programs with different deadlines, each program’s application will stay open until the program deadline. The application will close at 11:59 pm EDT on the date of the program deadline." Am I misunderstanding this? Is the happening to anyone else?
  8. Undergrad Institution: Medium sized state schoolMajor(s): B.S. Biology, B.S. ChemistryGPA in Major: 3.1Overall GPA: 3.21 M.S. Institution: small state school M.S. Biology GPA: 3.7 Type of Student: Domestic White FemaleGRE Scores (revised/old version): Took it 2 years ago, but not submitting scores to schools that don't require itQ: 161V:150W: 4.5B: N/AResearch Experience: (At your school or elsewhere? What field? How much time? Any publications (Mth author out of N?) or conference talks etc...) 2 semesters undergrad experience in plant biology resulting in 0 publications but 1 local poster presentation 3 years M.S. research (full time, >50hrs/week) in molecular bio lab resulting in 2 national conference poster presentations, 1 first author paper that has been accepted, 1 co-first author paper that is currently in review, 1 mid author paper currently in review, and hoping that 1-2 mid authorships might be submitted in the next month or two in high impact journalsAwards/Honors/Recognitions: Deans list for only one semester in undergrad small grants from undergrad and grad institutionsPertinent Activities or Jobs: (Such as tutor, TA, SPS officer etc...) T.A. for general biology labs for 3 years during M.S.Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: expecting one very strong letter from my current P.I. and two mediocre letters from current professors that I have only had classes withSpecial Bonus Points: Hoping to be on a paper with a PI that has published seminal papers in the field my MS research is inApplying to Where: Duke- CMB and PCB Johns Hopkins- BCMBUNC Chapel Hill- BBSP Univ of Pittsburgh- IBGP UC Davis- BMCD UT Southwestern- BBS U Virginia- BIMS Vanderbilt- IGP Iowa- BSP Indiana University- IBMG I am expecting some rejections, but I am wondering if I might be aiming too high because unfortunately my undergrad performance is not very strong, so any input is helpful! I am also wondering whether I should be contacting P.I.s whose labs I would like to do rotations in or whether this is frowned upon in umbrella programs, as it might look like I am contacting them to increase my chances of getting into a program. Thanks!
  9. I am just an applicant but I will read it and give my opinion if you would life.
