  1. Salutations, fellow Trojans! Officially accepted admission today ?
  2. 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
  3. I am on the waitlist for the VGT track at Mayo Clinic. Has anyone else been waitlisted for this program? Did they indicate your position on the waitlist or chances of being accepted?
  4. 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 (:
  5. Has anybody applied to the NYU Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences in PhD open Program? If yes, please post your stats and decisions here below.
  6. My top offers (PhD) currently are Johns Hopkins CMM and UCSD BMS. I want to study cancer genomics/immunotherapy. Not a big fan of Baltimore but Hopkins is pretty elite. UCSD BMS is top 10ish as well but I don't think it has the same reputation. I think I want to pursue a career in academia and I have been told people really look at pedigrees. I am worried about living in Baltimore and SoCal might be better for my mental health, there's tons of institutes and pharma in the SD area as well. Any advice would be really appreciated ❤️ thank you!
  7. Any pros and cons of these programs/schools/cities would be greatly appreciated!!
  8. I welcome all to post their admission threads here for PhD Fall 2019 applications.
  9. Hi Everyone, I'm applying for the UC San Diego Biomedical Sciences PhD program and I got a draft finished for the SOP. I'd love it if I can get a few kind individuals to take a look at it and provide me some feedback (rip it apart if you must). Please comment that you're interested and I'll PM you the doc Thank you!
  10. Hi all-- I'm currently working on my application for a Biological and Biomedical Sciences PhD program, and was wondering...What are the best resources for getting help writing a Statement of Purpose? I've already written my Statement, but am looking for feedback and ways to make it better. Any suggestions would be helpful. (I looked into paid editing services already, but was told that most schools don't allow this, or discourage applicants from using these services.) Thank you for your help.
  11. Hi all, I've been accepted to phd programs at UMN Twin Cities for med chem, and UW-Madison for Pharm Sci. In addition, I'm interviewing at Vanderbilt for their IGP program in biomedical science in April. I feel the need to pretend like I've already been accepted to Vandy as my interview is very late and I won't have much time to decide after I visit (if I don't get an offer then the decision gets made for me I guess lol). In the mean time I'm trying to rule out either UMN or UW. Both UMN and UW check all the boxes for me and I suspect Vandy will too. I'm having a lot of trouble thinking o
  12. I got accepted to Washington University in St. Louis DBBS and UT Southwestern medical center for biomedical sciences. Which one should I choose?
  13. First post: Just found out about this website and would love some help. I am deciding between 3 school for Biomedical Sciences PhD. The university of Colorado @ Denver, the University of Arizona and the University of Southern California. Anyone have thoughts on these three schools? I am looking to go into academia if that helps. I felt that Denver was very industry focused from my interview weekend at least. So I am concerned that is not going to get me the secondary skills necessary for academia. But I really do not know. Any advice? Thanks!
  14. Hello Everyone! This is my first post on GradCafe. Still not totally familiar with the platform but it seems very resourceful. I am currently working on a MS in Biology at a state school in CA. My thesis is focused on coronary artery disease. I intend to advance to the PhD level upon completion of my program. Not entirely certain what areas as of yet. I am leaning towards biomedical sciences or cell biology programs. I would like advice from those that have made the transition from the masters world to the PhD world. I suppose any person from any discipline can weigh in on this question.
  15. Since decisions came in, I have been talking myself into and out of my two top programs half a dozen times a day. I have the same arguments and counterarguments and feel like I'm no closer to deciding than I was a month ago. At this point it’s between either the emotional/gut choice of where I want to go (School #1) or the logical choice of where I think I should go (School #2). Background: I did my undergrad and Masters in chemical engineering before transitioning to a more bio-based research focus for the last 3ish years. I am particularly interested in pursuing a career in creating
  16. I applied to UNC Chapel Hill Biomedical Sciences Ph. D program. I haven't heard anything yet from bbsp (neither good nor bad), yet. I am very very nervous a time passes. I thought this could be a good platform to share updates with each other. Anybody heard anything?
  17. Hi all, I am extremely confused about what to do to get the career that I want. Currently I work as a research tech in a high profile lab at a great institution. In my time here I have been responsible for all protein purification and QC, worked on multiple projects, been published as 3rd author on an important paper with up to 2 more in the pipeline, and I have headed a project that could result in a patent. I would ultimately like get a PhD and work in industry. I was originally planning on applying to masters programs, but I have always been hesitant due to the high cost. My boss loves me
  18. I'm interested in both KGI's Master of Bioscience program and Thomas Jefferson University's M.S. in Biomedical Sciences. They are both PSM (professional science masters) programs, but KGI's program is more industry oriented and offers curriculum on the business aspect of the biotech industry. Can anyone with experience with one, or both, of the programs please tell me more (such as career outlook, curriculum rigor, culture, etc.)? Thanks in advance!
  19. Currently in my second year as a research tech in a prestigious lab in my field. I have acquired broad technical skills from undergrad and my current position. I am responsible for many technical responsibilities (protein production, purification, and QC) as well as working on several projects as well as my own drug related project. I am already on one paper, with another one being drawn up and two more in the pipeline. I should be able to receive 2 excellent letters of recommendation and I have pretty good GRE percentiles (85, 83, and 80 for V, Q, an AR), my only caveat would be my GPA. It is
  20. Hello! I just got rejected by Baylor College of Medicine (Biochem). It joins a list of 7 other schools that have done the same: UW-Madison, UMich, NYU, BostonU, UCSF, McGill and UT-Southwestern, all for Biomedical Science programs. While UBC and UToronto have accepted my application, admission is dependent purely on finding a supervisor. However, I haven't been able to do so, mainly due to my grades or a lack of funding from these faculty. My grades aren't ideal (to say the least) but I can't do anything about them at this point. So...as horrible as it feels to do this, I have to pla
  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 I applied to the PhD degree in biomedical sciences at Pennsylvania State University. I am on a waiting list This is the only chance that I have since I got rejected from others. If you know for sure you're not accepting, please let them know ASAP. Thanks.
