  1. I applied in my senior year without hope as my stats weren't good, but I tried to take a shot to gain some experience. I applied to about 4 schools for chemistry and biochemistry programs and got all rejects, which I wasn't too surprised since I wasn't finished taking major courses. I'm not too proud of my stats: 3.2 GPA, 3.1 major GPA, 143/154/4.0 GRE, 2.5 years of research experience (both experiences in synthesis and biochemistry research), and no pub. I graduated already, and I'm trying to apply again this upcoming cycle around October-December. I have about 6-8 months before submitting my
  2. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm deciding between the biochemistry/molecular biophysics program at UPenn and the biochemistry (BCMB) program at Johns Hopkins. My issue is this: I feel as though I like the Hopkins program better (more researchers I'm immediately interested in from the faculty page [10 or so here vs. 3ish at Penn], more students, more professional development opportunities), though that isn't to say that I don't love the BMB program at Penn (I do like that there's a little more biophysics in this program). However, when it comes to cities, I really love Philade
  3. 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!

  5. Hi good people, I am Shams from Bangladesh. I completed my bachelor of pharmacy in 2011 and master of pharmacy in 2013. I admit that I was not a good student and scored around 60% marks in bachelor and masters. Later, I took GRE and TOEFL and scored 305(v-148, Q-157, AWA-3.0) and 92. Since TOEFL expired after 2 years, I took IELTS and scored 7(L-8, R-7, W-7, and S-6.5). I have a very small research experience in Phytochemistry(a thesis during master's) and was able to publish a few articles on a few typical Indian journals (not significant to be honest). In total, I have applied for 2 Pha
  6. Hey y'all. As you can see from the title, I'm interested to see what you all think about my chances are for getting into top PhD programs around the country. This is my first post, and may very well be in the wrong category so please redirect me if so... Below is a LONG list of my credentials, please let me know your thoughts! (Top schools interested in include Stanford, UCSF, UC Berkeley, JHU, Harvard, UPenn) BIOGRAPHY-Junior at a small private university in Iowa-Earning BS in Biochemistry and BA in Biology-Would like to get into translational research eventually (intrigued by stem

    Required Courses

    I'm an Ontario student going into my 3rd year in hopes of getting in a masters program in molecular biology or food science. This semester I am taking a biochemistry course. With this course there is also a complementary lab course offered that is not required in my program, however, most other programs in my department need to take it. I am unsure if I should take this course as it may be looked for during admissions, although if I didn't need to take it I could use this additional time to volunteer in one of my professor's lab to gain experience. I have looked into the admissions of these p
  8. So I am going into my second year in a microbio PhD program, I never took biochem as an undergrad or in my masters program, my research project won't be biochem heavy. Turns out biochem is a prereq for the program, my advisor and I agree that I shouldn't take a biochemistry class (the undergrad class would take up too much time, and a grad level class would be out of my depth). A few potential solutions I've come up with are to do an independent reading and take an assessment at the end, enroll in an online class through coursera or edx and pay for the certificate, or have a biochemist o
  9. Hey there, I'm a chemistry major (biochem concentration) at a top 5 public school (in the US) about to enter my last year in Fall 2017. I am on track to finish my degree in 3 years, however my GPA due to heavy course loads is about 3.5 (3.58 if all goes well next fall semester). Practice GRE tests put me in the 95 percentile range, but I haven't taken a chem GRE test yet. I have over a year and a half of research experience in two different labs, both relating to pharmacology and bio-organic chemistry, but unfortunately no publications. I am looking at programs in medicinal ch
  10. So... right now I am in a tier 2 UC and have a well off GPA (3.9) but I got accepted to a top UC which was my dream school. However I have super hard time deciding. I am second year right now but I am pretty sure I can graduate next year, meaning that I should apply this December, if I stay. I aim to do biochemistry and molecular focus program. Right now I am working in an immunology lab. My PI is not very famous but I am very close with him and I am pretty sure I can get a letter from him later. I also get a fellowship in my home institution and I will be doing some molecular bio/geneti
  11. I'm stuck deciding between UCL, KCL and Imperial for a research program (Masters of Research) in Biology (specifically biochemistry/biophysics). I've looked at the current projects/faculty research at each university and find all of them interesting. I can't really decide which program I should go with. Can anyone with a biology background offer insight on any of these universities? I'd really appreciate it!
  12. I am going to start a PhD program in the fall at Yale's biochemistry, biophysics & structural biology program... but I'm having cold feet after committing to this program! Is anyone else out there already feeling worried about making the wrong decision? I chose Yale because I felt like I fit in with the student body, I was excited by how their basic science could be supplemented by more clinical/cancer biology exposure, the collaborations available for science students within the law school, and of course, I have a (fairly "serious") relationship where I currently live in Boston-- Yale was
  13. Hello all. I am graduating from University of Florida in 20 days with a 3.83 in biochemistry. I landed a job in industry working with viral vectors and proteins. I have 2.5 years of cancer research. 2 years of clinical pain research. A semester of random unrelated research and volunteering! I am very interested in turning cells into life saving machines and money making machines! that is pretty much what I want to do. my interests lie in cancer and in diseases. they also lie in industrial applications of genetic and cell engineering. Any advice on schools that have good
  14. Current junior chemical biology major here. I want to do a PhD program in Computational Biology/Chemistry. However, my undergraduate research experience is standard wet lab biochemistry work. I got a biotech internship this summer and it's also very wet lab molecular biology heavy. I could try to hustle and take a lot of CS/Math my last year (maybe get a minor in CS or Applied Math) to build myself as an applicant for more computationally driven research and write an SOP about how I want to switch fields but I built general research skills from my experience, etc. Or should I basically just ap
  15. I have been accepted to both University of Wisconsin (Biochemistry), Madison and University of Michigan (Chemical Biology) I have visited both campuses, the madison campus left me a better impression than Michigan. I like their capital and frozen lake during the winter. In Michigan, I did not really tour around the city because of my busy interview schedule. I was mostly inside buildings and my hotel. So I did not really know what the town is like. I hear the college town is ranked the top 3 among the nation. and the students in Wisconsin seem to be more friendly and chill while the
  16. I'm a third year undergrad, and I just started exploring graduate programs. I was toying with the idea of taking a year to work in industry, but I can't find anything on how that works (if you apply and defer, or if you just apply a year later), and I've heard conflicting opinions on gap years (some people in career advising say that the longer you're out of school, the worse your chances in STEM fields). I'm also at the point where I want to ask professors I'm interested in working with if they have vacancies, but I don't know if it's too soon, and if it's recommended or at all helpful, espec
  17. I am a senior at a big 10 research university and this november I will be applying for PhD programs. Mostly umbrella/interdisciplinary programs in realm of biochemistry/molecular biology/biophysics. For the past 3 years I have been doing research in biology/entomology, specifically studying bumblebee pigment chemistry/development and various environmental factors that impact pigmentation. While I really enjoy my work I am looking to pursue graduate studies in biochemistry (I am also majoring in biochemistry) but there is not much overlap between my research now and traditional biochemical rese
  18. I'll be starting a PhD program in biochemistry in a few weeks and I have to meet with the program advisor soon to set up my rotations. I pretty much have my top 6-7 labs picked out, but I'm wondering what's best: do I rotate with my favorite (top choice) lab first or last? Is there an advantage to either? We get to rotate through three labs before deciding, so obviously I will keep my options open out of the three. So, should I rotate with my top choice lab first or last? Thanks in advance!
  19. Hello, everyone ! I graduated from university with my Bachelor's Degree in Biotechnology. My GPA was a 3.91, and my GRE score was 308 with 3.0 in awa section;IELTS:6.5. I have great recommendations and have completed 3 research internships Here is the thing, I applied to 10 PhD programs last year, only interviewed at one, and was not given a spot at any of them. Which leads me to the next question, what did I do wrong? should I just stop applying and apply for my masters first? I don't want to disappoint anyone again with another round of rejections. Please tell me what to do nexttttt !!
  20. I started my undergrad as a mechanical engineering major, but growing up I had always wanted to go to medical school. As I've gone through the process, I've decided that it isn't for me. Looking back I wish I had never transferred out of mechanical engineering which I had liked very much. I'm really hoping to not have to spend more years as an undergrad before being able to apply to masters programs, considering I'm one semester away from graduation. My hope is that there are programs that I might be eligible for that I would just be able to take prerequisites for once enrolled. With my bio
  21. Has anyone heard anything from BU's PhD program in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry?
  22. Has anyone heard anything back from Georgetown regarding admission into their Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Ph.D. program for fall 2016? The application deadline was December 1, and I have heard nothing back and my application status still says "submitted" on their webpage. I have a friend who said she was rejected without an interview last year right at the beginning of February with the same application deadline of December 1, and it is well past early February. No one on the results forum seems to have heard anything back either. Any interviews, rejections, or acceptances? Let me kno
  23. Hey all, Basically I am trying to gauge my potential for PhD studies in Cell and/or Molecular biology. I'm still narrowing down research topics. I would like to attend grad school in or right around NYC. This would include such schools as Columbia, NYU, Weill-Cornell, Rockefeller, SUNY Downstate, CUNY Graduate Center, Stony Brook University and several others. While I know my (weak) stats arn't likely to land me in the top schools in NYC, please give me some feedback and what my options may be and what I can do to improve my chances for any program. A buddy of mine recommended applying for
  24. Hello all, let me get right to it! I changed my major from Biology to Sociology/Anthropology for my Bacherlor's Degree but I would like my Master's in Plant Biology/ Cancer Biology/ Botany and I have those listed depending on which university I accept. Since I did not get the Life Science background with my change of major I'm currently looking into the GRE Biology. My Question: What is good GRE Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology score? In case you're wondering the schools of choice so far: University of FL, Florida State, University of GA Thank you in advance! - Si
