    I've gotten rejected now from WUSTL, UW Madison, and UIUC (the school I'm at for my undergrad, ouch). I feel like at this point I'm just going to be rejected from every school I applied to. I posted my profile near the bottom of page 6. Do you guys think there's a chance that I'll be admitted anywhere else? I'm super scared to job-hunt because I decided to do research over the summer instead of getting an internship.

    I think you might still have a good chance with Indiana University, but I'm honestly no expert on grad admissions. I wouldn't completely give up hope, but might look into ways to keep your foot in the door (ex. take a gap year to get more experience and boost your CV)

  2. Undergrad Institution: Small public PUI. Not sure about reputation
    Major(s): Biochemistry
    GPA in Major: 3.93
    Overall GPA: 3.96

    Type of Student: Domestic Female
    GRE Scores (revised/old version): bless up GRExit

    Research Experience: 2 years undergrad organic chemistry, 1 year undergrad molecular biology, 1.5 years post-bacc full-time - 2 publications.

    Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Outstanding achievement in Biochemistry from undergrad. Academic All-Conference for academics/athletics

    Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Part-time tutor in undergrad, full-time research assistant post-bacc

    Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help:

    Special Bonus Points: female, but I don't think that's much of a bonus point...Post-bacc experience at R1 institution with dept chair as PI and letter writer.

    Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter:

    Applying to Where:

    Yale - BQBS
    Cornell - BMCB
    Columbia - Integrated Program - Biochemistry preference

    Cold Spring Harbor - Watson School of Biological Sciences

    Vanderbilt - IGP

    UW-Madison - Biochemistry --interview scheduled

    WUSTL - Molecular Cell Biology --interview scheduled

    Indiana University - Cell, Molecular, Cancer Biology --interview offered

    Case Western Reserve - BSTP --interview scheduled
