  1. I am a final year undergrad EE student from India, I have keen interest in BME and have worked on building wearable sensors. In your opinion, Which grad schools around the world are pushing the envelope of research in the area of wearable diagnostic sensors?
  2. Hi All, Lets start the profiles for Fall 2017 Bioengineering/Biomedical engineering programs: Here's a template borrowed from previous years: _________________________________________ Undergrad Institution: Major(s): Minor(s): GPA in Major: x.xx/4.00 Overall GPA: x.xx/4.00 Demographics/Background: GRE Scores: Q: xxx (xx%) V: xxx (xx%) W: x.x (xx%) LOR: Research Experience: Publications/Abstracts/Presentations: Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Fellowships/Funding: Pertinent Activities or Jobs: O
  3. Hey fellas, How's it goin' for ya? I'm still waiting for a single admission. no answer up to now. ucsd, uci, northeastern -> chemical engineering ucr, uic ,uiuc -> bioengineering all phd. is there anybody heard from these programs at these univs? should I have hope for any admission letter? ------------------------------profile------------------------------------ TOEFL:104-IELTS:7-GRE GENERAL:146(v)168(q)-GPA:3.60 with a year or two related research exprience.
  4. Hi! I am wondering how much weight do y'all put into the PhD stipend and location while making a decision. I am confused between offers from UConn (polymer science) and UBuffalo (biomedical engineering). UConn's offering 9k more than UB for first year, 10k more for subsequent years. Personally I won't care about stipends so much, but 10k is quite a lot of extra money for grad students. But then again I will be thrown away in the remotest of of villages in UConn while with Buffalo, I will be living in a major city. I have lived in major cities all my life and moving to a place like UConn s
  5. Hello guys, my first time posting here. I have applied to various biomedical engineering / bioengineering PhD programs in the US and heard back from all of them (6 rejects, 1 admittance) except for Duke. By this I mean I haven't gotten any e-mail at all. No interview, no rejection, no nothing. I e-mailed their graduate program coordinator six days ago and I still haven't gotten a response. By the looks of it, if I were to have a chance at admittance I should have at least been contacted about an interview by now. Should I just assume rejection an
  6. Hey guys! I'm an international student. Right now I'm trying to choose a program among BCM (Developmental Biology ), Icahn Mount SInai (Biomedical Science), UTSW (Biomedical), and UVA (Biology). NEED some advice here! Please!
  7. I've been Waitlisted by NYU Sackler PhD Biomed program, is someone rejecting their admission offer?
  8. Hi, Context: accepted to two MS degree programs in Biomedical Engineering, waiting on a few more decisions. Questions: One of the programs is asking for a decision by March 13th, giving me two weeks from notification to accept or decline. Is this common? What is the general process for finding a lab in which I would work on my master's thesis? Does this come before or after I accept an offer? I feel like it would make sense to accept an offer based on knowing where I would be conducting research. Is it possible that the labs I'm interested in to fill their research
  9. Hey All! I have a funny issue and not sure if this is the right place to ask about it! I’m kinda new to the whole graduate admission process. I’m applying to University of British Columbia (UBC) for MEng in Biomedical Engineering. Before applying I emailed the admissions office asking if a writing sample is required and they said that due t the fact that this is not a "writing oriented" degree the writing sample is not required, but the field on the website will stay open as the website is a generic one. A few weeks later, after the deadline for submitting the application

  11. Has anyone received admission letter from NYU Sackler?
  12. Hello everyone! I was wondering if anybody is interested in sharing their thoughts regarding applications for masters for fall 2017? I applied to the following to the following universities: Texas A&M, Ohio State, Northeastern, Illinois Institute of Technology, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Michigan Tech, Steven's Institute Of Technology, University of Cincinnati, University of South Carolina, Wright State I got admits from MTU by e-mail and NJIT through the website. Anybody knows when the remaining universities will start sending out admits? Please do share!
  13. Hi everyone, I'm applying for a PhD (Biomedical Eng.) and was offered funding for 3 years by a professor I want to work with. He wrote me a rec letter wherein he states that he wants me to work in his lab with him providing full funding. Quick explanation; I've worked with him on a project for which he has been granted funding. Should I expect to be admitted (more than usual), considering this? I heard that funding is the key especially for international students. For the record, I am an international student, my application is fairly decent with a M.S. in Bioengineering and ano
  14. With most of the deadlines for biology and biomedical Ph.D. programs for the Fall 2017 either being over or approaching, there's only one thing left to do: WAIT. If you're anything like me, you are refreshing your email hourly (even though it's only December 5th). So my question is to past applicants: When did you hear back from schools that you applied to about interviews and what not. Also, where did you apply? I would love to hear about some of the experiences you had with different schools and when you had correspondence with them so I can ease my own anxiety! Thanks!
  15. Is anyone else applying to the UC San Diego Biomedical program for Fall 2017? I have a question about the word limit of the Statement of Purpose. The Department states that the word limit is 3000 words. For all of the resources I've looked at online and even from the general statement of purpose guidelines from the UCSD website, the statement should not be much longer than 2 pages. Should I write my statement to be closer to 3000 words or is it better to keep it shorter?
  16. Dear All, I have thoroughly read this forum for guidance and learned that It is very difficult to obtain funding in Masters at US. BUT, I am still motivated to apply in Masters Biomedical Engineering at US with FULL FUNDING. Can you people guide me about universities which provides very good chances of full funding in MASTERS in BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING (for example, 58% of students last year at UW Madison obtained full funding for MS biomedical engineering). Looking forward to you all for your valuable guidance.
  17. I graduated with a BSEE 2015. Initially I was interested in entering industry and decided to switch over to research in my last year. I have mostly industry experience from undergrad but am now an RA in a clinical research position. Some stats: GPA: 3.4 (a couple C's but mostly A's, not sure how to get around this) GRE: Taking these in a month, aiming for 170 Q, 160~ V LOR: Will have one for sure from my current position, still deciding which prof. to ask for the other two Research Experience: Senior engineering project was essentially an independent group-based research
  18. Hi, would I be able to get into a graduate program for biomedical engineering with a degree in computer engineering? would it be better to get a degree in electrical engineering? I think I would like computer engineering better than electrical. Also the compE program at my school seems to lean heavily towards the CS side of the spectrum. only 2 EE classes and a software engineering class, the rest is the same as the CS curriculum. I want to major in computer engineering but I'm worried I wont learn enough about EE to be a good biomedical engineer. what should I do? I havnt done any
  19. Hi! I have been admitted into the Doctoral Track Masters Fall 2016 in Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers University. I was wondering if there's anyone here currently enrolled in graduate studies at Rutgers, as I would like to talk over a few stuff as funding and possible mentors. Thanks!
  20. Hi, I am an electrical engineering major in my junior year. I want to get into a phd program for biomedical engineering. The school that I'm at only has a masters program for biomedical engineering and it is very small. one professor listed systems biology as a research interest but that was it. I want to specialize in neuroengineering. Would it be better for me to see if this professor is doing any biomedical research and if not, do electrical engineering research? or would it be better to go over to the college of science and find a professor doing neuroscience research? Thank You
  21. Hi All, I interviewed at Columbia university last weekend for the Systems Biology PhD under the integrated program- has anyone heard anything from the graduate coordinators, or from the faculty regarding systems biology or the integrated program in general? They said decisions will be made within two weeks, but a few of the current grad students said that some of them had heard sooner in previous years. Thanks and good luck to all!
  22. Hey guys, I have been admitted to my two top BME programs so far: MEng at Duke University (cost is ~40k for 18 months) M.S. at UC Davis with funding and stipend (24 months) I'm about 99% sure I don't want to get a PhD so I plan on going into the industry right away. I have done quite a bit of research but don't want to conduct research long-term (I'd rather go into management/consulting). My dilemma is that Duke is a much higher ranked school in terms of their BME program than UC Davis (4th vs 22nd). I'm not sure if this includes the MEng program since it is run by Duke Grad
  23. A few years ago I left a top20 biomedical science PhD program in the US after two years of training. Most of the labs w/ funding in my research area left the school, so there were more students than available mentors. When I left, ¾ of the students in my research area did not have a lab at the end of our 2nd year. I also did not really like the area I was living in or the institution, so I decided to cut my losses and leave the program. I left before my prelim and I was so burnt out at the time I did not try to get a masters degree (would have had to find lab to fund me and stay there several
  24. Hi I wanna do a PhD in microbiology or Virology I am nervous, I took GRE and I did bad. I got 740 quant., 330 verbal The verbal score stands out as very low and the quantitative score is not exactly great My stats: International applicant. GPA: 3.2 GRE: 740-V 360-Q Research experience: I year and published as 1st author. Work experience: 2 years of experience as a teaching assistant at a university. Self funded, I don't need to receive scholarship from a university. I received a scholarship which shall cover my enrollment for the PhD degree. Do
  25. Hello All, I'm just writing to allay some of my anxiety of late. I applied to UPenn's Neuroscience program through the biomedical graduate group (BGG). Up until recently I've thought of it as one of my very top choices, but looking at some of the "results survey" entries are making me nervous. I guess I wasn't aware how stiff the competition for Penn really is. Anyone else out there who has applied, what are your thoughts on this? Have a lot of people heard about interviews? I'm curious to hear what others think. And if you wouldn't mind including a few things about yourself : What
