  1. Hello everyone ! I am an international student, applying to PhD program in Biological and biomedical sciences in USA. I would like to ask about " Writing samples", what are they? I have a master degree thesis, is it suitable to post? Should I post" the introduction, aim of the work, materials and methods, results and discussion" parts? Should i include references or not? Also, can anyone provide me with "samples" of relevant "writing samples" ? Thanks a lot
  2. 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.
  3. I am an international student, applying to UCSD's BMS program, and I submitted the pre-application. Has anyone heard back yet? I know it's still early in October, but I can't help but worry.
  4. Hi, I am a new user. I hope I am asking this in the right section, if not, please guide me to the appropriate place. I completed by Bachelor's degree in Pharmacy (5-years course) and also earned a Master's degree in Pharmacy (major: Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmacology). I applied to six programs in the Fall-2019 semester and got rejected by all six. My GRE score is Q162, V162 and AWA4.0. My TOEFL score is 112 (R30, L30, S23 and W29). I have no publications but worked on about six research projects. I hope to publish two works in the next 3-4 months. I applied to Universities lik
  5. 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
  6. I'm looking to do research in cell biology, and trying to decide between my top two choices. Just looking for input on institutional prestige in the medical/biomedical fields - my sense is that Yale overall has greater name value but for medicine and related fields, Hopkins does a bit better. Any advice would be welcome!
  7. Hi all, Hope everything is well for all of you! Congrats for those who got their invitations and offers! I'm not sure if there's anyone in looking at this post and is at the same stage as me: got nothing but only rejection letters (5/9). I applied for 9 PhD programs and haven't heard from Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and UCB, but I see in the cafe that many people have got their invitations, and the interview dates are reasonably close. (One of the disadvatages I have is that I'm an international student, thus we are considered separately because of funding issue.) As a resu
  8. Has anyone heard anything about interviews for the OxCam NIH Partnership program?
  9. I am trying to decide between which two Biotechnology programs to attend in the fall. The first program is the NYU Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship Program which is great because of its interdisciplinary curriculum in both biotechnology and business. They also offerered me a generous scholarship. On visiting the campus and speaking with faculty it seems promising. I was selected for an additional scholarship and feel like the financial aid office is forthcoming with working with me to cover tuition costs. The research areas are good with opportunities to do research at the renowned memorial
  10. I am mostly looking at four programs that accepted me: UCSF, Princeton, Columbia, UCSD I mostly narrowed it down to UCSF vs Princeton, but I am still considering the other two. Leaning towards UCSF. It's almost ironic since UCSF and Princeton are basically polar opposites (huge medical school vs. no med school, no undegrads vs. undegrad focus, basic science vs. a lot of translational etc). I'm really undecided because I'm not sure if I want to do translational or basic (granted, UCSF has both and Princeton just basic). My main concerns are the cost of living in SF, that UCSF is just
  11. Congratulation to all of you who have been accepted into your MFA program. My MFA journey will continue in Florence Italy. What are the things you are doing now to prepare you for the next 2-3 years? How do you go about your thesis research?
  12. Is there anyone that had an interview at Uconn's health center for their biomedical sciences PhD program, and NOT heard back yet? I know they sent out some acceptances and rejections, but I have not heard anything.
  13. Hi, I will be applying to colleges to attend during Fall 2019. My focus is mainly on Canadian Universities. Current GPA - 8.22/10 Internships - 2 Summer Internships. 1) Training in Communication systems and satellites in a public sector office 2) Training in Process Control and Sensors in a major Newsprint industry Workshops - Attended 2 robotic workshops each of 1 week long Currently doing my BTech in Electronics and Instrumentation pre-final year. But I'm very much interested in Biomedical Instrumentation and I've taken up the subject as an elective in the current se
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. can anyone help with this homework question? Your project is focused on the studies of interactions of the mouse protein tyrosine kinase XYZ with other cellular proteins. Here is what you know about XYZ: It is a cytosolic protein, which is approximately 750 amino acid residues-long. It phosphorylates a wide spectrum of cellular proteins. XYZ is phosphorylated itself on several tyrosine residues. The phosphorylation of XYZ is essential for the functions of this kinase, although details are unknown. There are also reasons to believe that XYZ is glycosylated. Your goal is t
  17. Hi everyone, So, I'm a bit confused (aren't we all?). I applied to a program and was contacted by a PI that thinks I am a good fit for his lab and said, in his email, phone interview, and in person interview, that he has a spot available for me (actually, he's looking for two students - he is funded) and that I'd be a great fit due to our similar research background. I went through several interviews with him and others, interviews went really well and received positive feedback. However, the decisions were supposed to be sent out late last week and others, in different concentrations
  18. 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.
  19. Has anyone heard back from Stanford's MS Bioengineering program? Almost to the end of march and haven't seen anything about the masters acceptances.
  20. Can someone suggest me for any low-cost online courses associated with biomedical engineering? Since i don't have any research papers i planned to rise my sop using online courses. Will online courses really help in improving my sop??
  21. So. I have wanted to go the direct-track PhD path for a while now, but I am afraid my stats simply won't be competitive for the programs I'm looking at. At this point I'm most worried about my GRE scores. I had planned on applying to the BME PhD programs at UMN, UF, UM, UR, and CMU. Although CMU was a stretch to begin with, it's downright unrealistic at this point. I had only considered it because one of my LOR writers has worked with many of the profs in their department, so I'd hoped that would carry extra weight. Most likely not gonna apply there now. Regardless, I have: a 3.5 GP
  22. I am really confused in selecting a specialization course for my graduate program. What is the difference between a M.S. Biomedical engineering and selecting any specialization courses. Can i do specialization course by selecting M.S biomedical engineering? Please help me with the doubt...
  23. Looking for inputs on my profile and whether it matches with the school list; I'm really lost as to how ambitious I should be... So basically, what are my chances at the schools I'm applying to? Specifically Northeastern.

  24. Hello all, I am an undergraduate student from India with bachelors in Biotechnology and a GPA of 3.8/4. I am in a quandary: whether go for Biomedical Engineering or for Environmental Science ( I have a predisposition towards it). Please help me know the job prospects after graduation. Are these fields of study in demand? Would i be able to secure a job after my graduation ? Should I go for Biomedical or for Environmental Science?
  25. I am a final year undergrad EE student from India, I have keen interest in BME and have worked on building wearable sensors. In your opinion, Which grad schools around the world are pushing the envelope of research in the area of wearable diagnostic sensors?
