  1. I heard that Stanford Biosciences is more competitive (acceptance rate wise) than its peer institutions, e.g. MIT Biology, Harvard Integrated Life Sciences (HILS), UCSF, GSK. Why so?
  2. Hello everyone: I am trying to decide between UCLA and UCSF for a Biochemistry PhD and I would appreciate any input. Does anyone know which place has better success for academic vs industry employment and what the reputation is at both locations? Both programs have great research, advisers, and students. Thank you everyone in advance for your input!

  4. Hello everyone, I really loved both of these schools when I visited and it feels impossible to decide between them. I'm laying out some logistical things here and would welcome any insights that might help me decide. UCSF Pros: - Four faculty that are close research fits and many more doing research that I am less experienced with but find fascinating - Great grad students and culture - everyone seems happy and taken care of - Excellent facilities - Seems like a truly collaborative environment Cons: - I'm moving with a partner and a big dog so livin
  5. Stuck choosing between my top 3 picks UCSF, UPenn, and Johns Hopkins for a PhD in Cellular/Molecular/Developmental Biology (varies by school/program). From what I've seen, heard, and read, all three schools have amazing programs, I think my decision will more likely come down to quality of life in those three places. My research interests are super broad so I'm not particularly worried about labs, I'm sure I will find PIs and labs at each program that I will love to work with. San Francisco - I'm from the Bay Area, so family is nearby, easiest move and probably safest of the three cities.

  7. Hi everyone, I am mostly looking at four programs that accepted me in Computational Biology: Berkeley, UCSF, UChicago, Columbia Never studied or interned at any of them before so I am hoping to know more about them outside the website~ I am most likely in academia, but I wonder for Computational Biology in general, which school might be a best fit, and what to avoid. In general as far as I know: Berkeley great for bio and cs. young. in Bay. UCSF top biomed. expensive but in Bay. less known in pan-science than biomed.
  8. I'm debating between accepting UCSF (Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacogenomics) or UW (Pharmaceutics), both PhD programs. Both seem excellent, but the differences as I see them: PSPG is part of the broader Quantitative Biosciences Consortium (QBC) at UCSF, so has more faculty and incorporates genomics along with traditional pharmacokinetics (PK) research. There is only one year of coursework, which seems rushed to me. The current students and other interviewees were amazing. San Francisco is cool, but expensive. UW does not have an emphasis on genomics, so I would have to take cla
  9. Hi All! As someone who currently has an interview at a Bay area PhD program and is waiting to hear from another, I was wondering how realistic it is to live in SF on a $36,000-37,000/yr stipend? I know it can be done, but how many sacrifices do you have to make to get by in a city where the housing prices are so high? Are you living comfortably or living in a basement with 10 roommates? Would appreciate any advice current graduate students could give!! Thank you in advance!!
  10. I have two weeks to decide between NYU or UCSF for a neuroscience PhD -- please drop me a line if you have any insight into the quality of either of these programs or what life is like as a broke student in either of these expensive cities! Thanks so much... any help incredibly appreciated!
  11. Which school do you guys think is better in regards to tissue engineering? look forward to opinions!
