    2019 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results

    I applied to microbiology, MCB and Chemistry programs - UMASS Amherst. Has anyone heard back from any of these programs? I checked the results section and two people posted open house invites from MCB program.

    “Family friendly” schools?

    I wish to apply for the 2020 fall in any biological sciences program (PhD in microbiology or cell biology). However, I need advice as to how to look for grad schools that offer childcare, including information about affordability. I keep browsing through so many universities - I have two children and I will be relying heavily on resources while I’m busy with hectic coursework and others. I also couldn’t locate any relevant thread/topic here. If there is, can someone please provided the link so that I can delete this thread if needed? Thanks...

    Biology GRE old test papers

    http://mostafaworld.yolasite.com/resources/Biology.pdf When I was practicing I was only able to find this one online. If you are looking for more there's Kaplan GRE Bio textbooks older than 2016 and they can be purchased from Amazon.

    BIOL GRE Subject Exam

    I am also appearing for the April exam this year, in my case I am following whatever's in the syllabus on ETS website (with the help of some textbooks). But I am unsure about practice questions - don't know about you but I feel this isn't enough. I was thinking of purchasing books through Amazon but don't know what to get for practice. How about you?
  9. How authentic is online editing/allowing someone else to edit your draft and paying them online? And what websites are out there - anyone have any examples?

    Should I submit my Biology GRE Scores? Help!

    Depends on the schools you are applying to... If they need subject GREs some mention their averages in the websites. If you are applying for Biotech, your high score in Mol. Cell. Bio. is a plus point, because I'm a Biotech major myself, and haven't come across anything related to Organismal or Ecol/Evol Biology... I would have submitted the scores if I were you. I wonder why you opted for Bio GRE subject instead of Biochem GRE subject... But it's all good

    Submit two sets of GRE scores?

    I am in the same boat as you are, but I will be applying to biological sciences for grad studies.
  12. Ditto. I rewrote the exam last week after I was unsatisfied with my November scores. Two passages were repeated.

    GRE Score international applicants

    Its getting tougher day by day for us international students, eh?
  14. I also need mine to be reviewed - BUT I do not want to post it here. Can I email it to someone else here? That would be greatly appreciated...

    Issue with ID (passport) name vs. GRE account name...

    My exam's on Dec 10th (I know it's late, I am trying to catch the remaining Jan deadlines and I know I won't make the Dec deadlines) - I appeared for one last week but the scores weren't that great, and so trying to give that another shot. HOWEVER, at the testing center, there were no issues. I have one last name (unlike yours - you said you had two of them...)... I will try emailing them and see if this is an issue or not. I'm worried about scores being reported to schools at the moment - if they see that my first name is my last name (which is NOT, it's the other way round), I don't know if that will mess up the application process.
