  1. I am starting this thread to start the discussion of interviews in a Covid world. I have personally scoured the internet and numerous other forums looking for advice and what schools are saying in regards to their interview plans and this is what I have found so far. I received this notice from Stanford's Bioscience admissions when I submitted my application "During the week of January 11, 2021, the committees will start to contact applicants who have been selected for an interview. The selected applicants will be invited to interview via Zoom and participate in programming with faculty
  2. Hi everyone! I am currently applying to PhD programs for biomedical science. I really just need an umbrella program because I have too many interests to confidently apply to a specific program. I have a lot of research experience but a 3.4 GPA , but my last two semesters is a 3.7 (adding that in my "additional information" section for applications. I have had the same mentor and advisor my full 4 years at undergrad. I have been in independent research with him since my summer sophomore year and currently doing an honors research thesis with him. He is writing my letter of rec,
  3. I am about to graduate in December and I am going to pursue a career in research. I just began applying for research assistant jobs that interest me when I got some discouraging advice. My current plan is this: 1. Be hired as a research assistant starting as soon as January. 2. Work as a research assistant for at least a year or two (Ideally work for a company that can pay for grad school). Use mornings/evenings before/after work to build on personal projects (businesses I will start, etc.) and goals. 3. Transition from work mode to school mode by doing some independent study of the
  4. Hi, I have written a SOP and a Personal Statement (diversity) and am wondering if anyone would be willing to look them over and give me some feedback? I am from an historically underrepresented group and am the first in my family to pursue a PhD, so I am a bit out of my depth here. Any help will be greatly appreciated (PM me)!
  5. I graduated this past spring with a BS in pharmacology and I'll be applying for fall 2021. I want to pursue a career in R&D in the future. I'm especially interested in joining a PhD program for neuroscience tied to pharmaceutical sciences, but I don't actually have much background in neuroscience. It would be super helpful if I could get some insight into where I would be standing in regards to applying for graduate programs. I was a transfer so I did 2 years at a community college (got a 3.83 GPA) and then graduated from a university with a 3.83 GPA. I did undergraduate research for
  6. Hi, everyone! I am new here and hoping y'all could provide some guidance. I will be graduating this December with a B.S. in Mathematics and a minor in statistics. Deciding what I want to do with my life has taken a looooong time, but I finally figured out my passions/interests: computational biology. As of right now, I am planning on attending graduate school in the Fall of 2021, provided I actually get accepted anywhere. Because my interest in the field did not come about until within the last year, so I have very little background in biology (as in...I'm taking an intro bio course this fall
  7. Hey everyone, So my future plans changed and I want to peruse PhD in biology or genetics. But I am not sure if I should wait a year to expend my resume or just try and apply this upcoming cycle. My stats as follow: 1. Major in bio ( 3.75ish gpa) 2. Multiple years on dean's list, some honors award 3. Peer TA for 1.5 years 4. Have different interesting activities ( open non profit after high school, work in interesting jobs, currently have a business, etc) 5. Research: Year and 3 months in biomedical lab, 2 years in computational/genetics lab, 3 month internship
  8. I am a 2nd year graduate student in a masters biology program. My field of research is cardiovascular disease. Specifically, I research the genetic expression and protein secretion profiles of unique adipose tissue depots in patients with coronary artery disease. I do not have any publications at this point in my career. Although, I have been fortunate enough to obtain ~$13,000 in competitive grant funding and fellowships. I am currently working on a mini-review and hope for my thesis research to be published, once completed. Due to a setback in my research, I will be staying in this pro
  9. Hey, Is there anyone who has received an admit from ETH Zurich's MSc Biology for Autumn 2020? I just did, and want to reach out and know more.
  10. Hi everyone! I noticed that threads like this don't include information about whether or not people were accepted, waitlisted, and/or rejected. If you applied during any year before 2020 and have results, please post below. 😀 I noticed math/physics have similar threads which DO include acceptance and rejection results from people. Wanted to start something similar for biology! Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school, such as big state, lib arts, ivy, technical, foreign (what country?)...

  11. 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
  12. Hi everyone, I am an applicant for the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Biological Sciences (IDPBS) at ECU. I applied on January 15th and still am waiting to hear back. I first emailed my prospective PI in the beginning of March to ask when I should hear back and she said soon... waited 2 weeks and still nothing so I emailed the graduate school and they said they had no clue. So last week I emailed the graduate program director of IDPBS and she said I should hear back after April 15th. Crazy, right? I should assume that I either got waitlisted or rejected! Because graduate schools ha
  13. I have great offers from two schools: One a Natural Resources Department and one an EEB. I’m hoping to get hired in a traditional biology department afterwards where my partner is. I’ve read online that some traditional biology departments look down on Natural Resources because they’re so applied and less theoretical. I wondered if anyone had insight into this? These do seem like very traditional departments: NSF grants and a rockstar professor in EEB and USDA grants + conservation contracts in SNRE.
  14. Hey everyone, I saw a 2019 post for computational biology/bioinformatics/systems biology, but nothing posted yet for the 2020 cycle. I thought I'd get it started for this year because it was nice to read through a thread from last year that was separate from the biology postings. I'm curious to hear where everyone is applying to, and any news/tips anyone has as well. And of course staying updated once results start rolling in after the application deadlines. Good luck to everyone!
  15. AS an international students who got a Master's degree in US, I applied for 15 different PhD programs this year and got 4 rejections, 2 wait-list and just 1 interview now. I am so stressful recently, I sent emails to those silent schools and got a general reply, "decisions have not yet been made", I do no really know what these mean, I kind of feel they were just wait a date to send all rejections at one time. As I found on the Grad Cafe, usually people got interviews no later than Feb, so I am so sad at this time.
  16. Hello everyone! I am currently applying for immunology Ph.D. programs. Would anyone be willing to look over my statement of purpose? If you are please PM me! Thank you for all of your help!!
  17. this is for people like me who despise the toxic gradcafe forums and just want to know whether they should begin focusing their attn to programs they still have a shot at instead of being left hanging by programs that don't tell you about rejections/completed offers. No stats, no chancing - private message or start a new thread if you want to do that (:
  18. Hey folks, so I'm a Canadian B.Sc student at UBC graduating in May. Im looking to go into a masters (in Canada ideally) and I've already got a couple mentors in mind but for some reason I'm terrified of contacting them and don't even know where to start. I know it should be a pretty simple and straight-forward email, but I'm not too sure what to include. Was hoping you guys could give me some tips/pointers on what to email to prospective mentors. Also, what the hell is a writing sample? I'm honestly feeling very confused about the whole process so if y'all could give a man a hand it would be g
  19. Hi everyone, I'm applying to the USC Keck School of Medicine's molecular microbiology and immunology program for the Fall 2020 semester. I've been personally reviewing my own statement of purpose but I'd like to reach out and have a less biased reviewer possible help me out with some tips. The length requirement is 1-2 pages and the prompt is as follows: Why are you interested in pursuing the Master of Science in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology degree? How will this degree affect or enhance your career aspirations and goals? Any tips are appreciated! Thank you all and hap

  21. As most of us are aware the application season is well underway for fall 2020 graduate programs. I'm having a lot of difficulty deciding the type of program I want to apply to. I currently work as a lab tech for a major research institution in the united states. I am starting my second year here and this is the only research experience I have with one publication under my belt. I work in an immunology lab and we do a lot of cell/molecular based research. I enjoy my work here a lot but I often feel as if I'm missing the bigger picture. As such I've started to think about a research career
  22. Hi I graduated with B.E in Biotechnology in the year 2017 from India. I have been working in a computational genetics lab since then. I don't have any publications yet. Might be submitting one by the end of this year. I am aiming for Phd in mathematical biology as that field really interests me. I have done courses in Calculus I and II, Linear Algebra and Differential Equation during my undergraduate studies. It would be great if you could suggest me any universities in the USA which offers this program of study. I would welcome suggestions in this regard, since I don't have a majo
  23. Hello, I am early in looking into PhD programs. I have a research based Master's in biology, emphasis on infectious disease. I have been thinking about a PhD in public health instead of bio, microbio, etc. I have experience working for the health dept. (briefly), teaching at the college level, and several publications. My question is, will I need an MPH first? Anyone go straight to public health PhD without an MPH or with more lab experience than health experience? Many thanks!
  24. Hi, I am very conflicted on what direction I should do, any advice is appreciated. I have graduated with a B.S. in biology about a year ago and my GPA is a 3.17. I understand my GPA is low. I did very bad my first two years of college due to dealing with anxiety and depression issues but my last two years I managed to raise my GPA from a 2.75 to 3.17 and got an A in all my upper level biology courses (such as cell biology, microbiology, parasitology, biochem, animal behavior, virology etc.) Anyway I have always dreamed of getting a phD and being a research scientist. My first two ye
