  1. Hi all, I need some second opinions to help me decide on what to do after graduation. My plan was to take some post-baccalaureate fellowship or work in a lab for a year or two before applying to programs that I like, but after checking the profile of some of the students, I think although the chances are slim, there might be a possibility that I could get in this year. I'm graduating in three years so I think compared to other applicants I might not have as much research experience and I don't have any publication. about me: First generation, International student from a middle eastern country, (currently in the US) high school: top of my class in a very competitive national gifted student school(only 30 students in each class, one school in town) have some experience teaching and doing some research. undergrad: University of Oklahoma, Psychology GPA: 3.9, 4.0 Major, GRE: not gonna take but from practice tests, I'm guessing > 90th-95th. Awards and honors: President list, dean list, some merit scholarship Experience: this is what I'm not confident about, I'm graduating in three years, so I don't have as much experience compared to a 4-year student, by the end of fall 2020 I'd have: 3 semester in a cognitive psychology lab 1 semester teaching assistant 1 semester neuroscience lab NO publications. Letter of recommendation: 1) from the psychology lab GA whom I've worked with for 1.5 years, 2) from the psychology professor whom I've taken a class with and I'd TA for her this semester 3) from the professor who I have a class with and also would be in her lab for next semester, I'd like to get into one of these programs: Rockefeller( #1 choice), Columbia, UCLA, UCSF, USCD, north Carolina chapel hill, U Penn, U Michigan, CNUP, MIT what are my chances of getting to these schools? If you have any feedback or comments please let me know. any specific gap year program/ job or research opportunity that would help me increase my chance of getting in, other good programs to consider, or programs that I have a good chance of getting in this year.
