PROFIE_EVALUATION: PhD in CS, Fall-2020 (computational biology/bioinformatics) in Engineering Posted December 16, 2019 Thank you for your suggestion. Yes, I am an international applicant. And I agree, this is an overall slightly below than the average profile. However, I have found that getting into the Master's program is even more competitive in my prospective research area. I am not applying to very ambitious programs. For now, I will at least keep trying to find some schools that are ranked >= 80 for Ph.D. programs. Again, thank you for your response.
