  1. Hey! To all those (masters and Ph.D. applicants) who have been accepted to the BME program at JHU, have you all received the welcome/funding letter? I am waiting for mine. I applied to the MSE program and desperately hope to get some financial aid.
  2. Hi, all, As mentioned in the title, I applied for GaTech&Emory dual BME PhD Program, and I reached out to a professor in Emory in Feb and had a conversation with him. I had a follow-up talk with his post-doc in the beginning of March. Recently, I saw some admissions posted here, but no rejections. I did not receive either. Questions: 1. Should I email the professor who I talked to and ask about the process? I have gotten the offer from WUSTL, should I mention that? 2. I know that in some schools or programs, admission decisions are controlled by the committee and pr
  3. I recently finished the application season (Masters) and have the following acceptances: UCSD, Duke, Columbia, Boston University, Northwesterm These are amongst others (Yale, Berkeley, Cornell, Michigan, UCLA, etc.) however they were either one year or non-thesis programs, or the university's main focus was not BME so I have decided to throw those out. Again if you think that isn't a wise decision please let me know. I have also been waitlisted at Hopkins, and am looking to accept that should I get in. Anyone familiar with these schools that can help me out? I am looking ve
  4. Hi, I am applying to PhD programs in Biomedical Engineering. I want to cite my papers in my Statement of Purpose. This was advised by my current research advisor. How should I do so, I dont want to keep bothering him. Currently, I have: Then I have a references page at the bottom. Are there other ways to do so? Also I am not a first author on these papers, I am second and 4th for context. Thank you in advance.
  5. Hey all! I am in dire need of some objective insight into a decision between Hopkins BME and Yale BME. I know that Hopkins is the top BME graduate school, but I also happen to be a current student there and am not quite settled on the idea of being there another 5-6 years. Ideally, I would like to start somewhere different, which Yale would give me the opportunity to do so. Additionally, I got an additional fellowship (Gruber) at Yale that would be helpful with paying off student loans. The tough thing is, is that I didn't really get to visit Yale in person due to the Corona virus,
  6. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE In Physics, the understanding of light has evolved over the past few centuries and has enabled it to play a critical role in shaping each and every branch of science and engineering. Medical field has benefited from it the most where light forms the basis of optical imaging. Indeed, what intrigued me most is the “production of sound by light” when I was first introduced to a concept of photoacoustic (PA) imaging in my master’s thesis. While working on my thesis, I studied many articles including “Listening for the sound of cancer” which altogether inspired me to pursu
  7. Hey folks! So I was notified today that I have received a scholarship worth 20,000 USD from U of Florida. I was planning to decline their admission offer today. I would have preferred being given some time before re-assessing my decisions, however, I have to make the decision today or else the scholarship offer would not stand. How weird is this???
  8. I'm an international student from India and I've been offered admission to Duke and USC for an MS in BME. I've spoken to a lot of people from both colleges, and I seem to get the general idea that USC is a great place primarily because of its location in California where there are a lot of BT/Biomed companies. But I'm still pretty torn between them, since Duke has a great program and offers me the flexibility to really explore what I like. As somebody who wants to enter the industry, I'm not sure if I should pick the much lower ranked program/good location, or great program/okay location. Any
  9. Hey guys! Like I mentioned in the "Masters Applicants for Fall 2018" thread in Waiting It Out Forum, I have created a thread for BME/Bioengineering people! Even though I have not received all the results back from schools, I probably should start researching into the schools I got accepted to make a wise decision! This thread is to share and exchange information about BME/Bioengineering programs of different schools. I will try my best to gather information about schools, using all my resources (internet, friends, visiting campus) and update this thread. And... I would greatl
  10. I was accepted to both but could not visit because I am international. Which school should I choose and why?
  11. There are two universities that I am very interested in attending for masters in biomedical engineering and to which I have been accepted: the University of Florida at Gainsville and Johns Hopkins University. JHU has the best BME program but it is very costly. UFL, on the other hand, has half the tuition cost as JHU and I am also getting a $4500 scholarship there. Getting into JHU would be the best thing for my career, however, I want to continue with my higher studies and get a Ph.D. in the future and do not want to be neck-deep in debt. At the same time, I do not know if letting go of such a
  12. Hey all! So I got the most awaited acceptance letter from my dream school today, that is, Johns Hopkins University. I am super excited about it. However, I received the letter from the Vice Dean of Graduate Education and not from the department and it included the following statement: Please see the welcome letter from your department for more detailed information regarding any individualized funding support, program specifics and options, advisor arrangements, and program orientation requirements. I haven't received the welcome letter yet. Should I wait for the letter or start
  13. Hey all! I am still waiting for the decisions from some universities like Michigan State and Purdue where I applied for master's in Biomedical Engineering. I applied to them way back in October and the status of my application has been the same ever since. Why are they taking so much time???
  14. Hiii everyone, I have applied for many 19 Fall's MSE/BME Ph.D. programs, and my research interests are mainly in the field of biomaterials/biosensing. But it is February now and there is no good news. So I would like to seek MSE/BME Master programs that have not yet reached the deadline. If any of them are thesis-based, it would be better! Any relevant information or suggestions are welcome. Thank you so much!
  15. Hello everyone! The previous week I got accepted to the master's program at Case Western Reserve University and the University of Florida in Biomedical Engineering. I love Case Western as it has been a pioneer in BME research for a long time, however, it is a private university and does not offer any financial aid to incoming masters students. The University of Florida, on the other hand, is a public university and I got a 4500 USD scholarship. I would have chosen Case Western over the University of Florida had it been more economical for me, but I am not sure whether I am thinking about
  16. Hi everyone! I guess there are some of you who are in the same position as me and I just wanted to vent a little and maybe talk about it with some people who might be in the same spot. I applied to both Purdue and Pitt for the BME/BioE Ph.D. program. On April 10th or so I asked about the process and in both schools, they told me I'd have to wait for an answer after the April 15th deadline, before the 20th. Here I am, April 24th writing to you with no answers. I got rejected from UPenn and got invited to the masters of CMU (Since a prof. really liked my profile but didn't have the money to
  17. Hey guys, I am trying to decide between Columbia and Boston University for BME PhD and I would appreciate any input from other BME grads or prospective students! For reference, the stipends are pretty comparable, but Columbia has direct match whereas Boston has a rotations program. Does anyone know which place has better success for academic vs industry employment and what the reputation is at both locations?
  18. So I'm currently trying to choose between Duke's M.S. in BME program, and UMich's M.S. in BME program based on (in the following order) 1. Availability of jobs --> I'm not too keen on working for a huge company? I'd rather work for a mid-sized company, well funded, that allows me to gain some useful and hands-on experience. I've heard that UMich BME has some issues when it comes to finding good BME internships and jobs (compared to Duke and its proximity to the RTP). Is this true? 2. Availability of funding 3. Flexibility wrt concentration 4. Durham vs. Ann Arbor
  19. I applied to Columbia’s PhD program for biomedical engineering and got an interview invite. It’s my top choice and I didn’t think it was going to work out, so I was ecstatic to hear from them. Since I got the email though, my stress levels have steadily gone up as I realized that this interview was a step in the right direction but no guarantee of admission. I want to be as well-prepared as possible, and I was wondering if anyone had advice/information on how Columbia’s interview process goes? Should I expect to talk about my own research experience or POI’s? Is it more casual or w
  20. Hello everyone, nice to meet you guys here.I am an international student and I plan to pursue my master's degree in U.S. Currently I have got the admission from Yale, NWU, Boston, JHU and Columbia. It's really a tough decision to choose one of them and decline all others.Could you guys give me some advice and help me to make a decision? I know JHU is definitely the best in BME field. But I believe Yale and Columbia are more well-known. I plan to find a job after graduation, so I think maybe Yale and Columbia are more suitable for me.Thank you for your kindness!
  21. Has anybody (or anybody you know of) heard back from ETH Zurich for Msc. in BME? They're supposed to send out decisions before March 15th, but I see that a lot of other branches have received theirs already, so I was wondering.
  22. Hello. I need some advice and help from you guys. I will greatly appreciate them! 1. I have heard from someone that many graduate programs admit students on rolling basis. Is this true? I have been researching schools for some time and I have not seen any mention of "rolling admission" on their websites. I was a bit panicking when I heard this because I just started narrowing down my school list and filling out the applications and I think I will be able to submit it right before the deadlines.... 2. I have B.S. degree in molecular biology. I have read some posts that it is doable b
  23. Hey guys, i know we have a profile thread already. But since interviews are coming out, let's post the interview dates here so that we can try to avoid potential conflicts. Best of luck with everyone's applications and interviews!
  24. Hi! I'm currently a Junior majoring in Biomedical Engineering at one of the best BME schools in the world, and I'm feeling very unsure about my future (aren't we all?). I have had very little experience in research (about one full semester) mainly due to the fact that I really did not enjoy it and I don't feel passionate about it. Through undergrad I realized that while I do love science, I don't love the tedious work behind it. I'd rather look at the big picture/finished product, understand the science behind it, and move forward with commercialization. I've been interested in the biotech/bus
  25. Hello! I recently decided to go to a graduate school in bioengineering/biomedical engineering field. I've been doing some research past couple weeks on schools and programs but I'm still pretty lost. Not sure how much of things (stats and experiences) are required for PhD or MS in engineering especially someone like me, who only has biology background... Here are some info about me so that you can provide me better advice: Undergrad: top 5 public school in the U.S. Major: Molecular Biology GPA: 3.74 (do not remember but my science gpa is higher) GRE: started studying just
