Hi everyone! I will be entering my junior year in college so the graduate school process is still a ways off but I want to seriously begin to consider my options after graduations. As an undergraduate, I have had two summer internships working at an antibody production company in the IF validation department. This summer, I am also an Amgen Scholar at Duke in the cancer and pharmacology department and in the fall I will begin enrolling in graduate level courses (cancer biology, molecular biology, statistics). At the moment, I am very interested in looking into potential Ph.D. progr
Hi, I am an Indian student. I have been accepted into two great programs- MRes Cancer Informatics at Imperial College London and PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Purdue. I would very much prefer to settle down in Europe in the future, so I am confused as to what I should choose! The main factors for each of them are- Imperial- I have been awarded a prestigious British Council scholarship covering 100% tuition fees to study the program at Imperial. The program offers the opportunity to do a six-month project at CRUK Cambridge, Francis Crick Institute, Institute of Cancer Resear
So I'm really struggling to make this decision and both are great options. I'm interested in pursuing some kind of cancer research and also have an interest in RNA biology. Penn is well connected in terms of cancer research, but Yale is extremely well-known for RNA biology, making this a difficult choice. I'm also struggling with factoring in student happiness level and work/life balance. When I interviewed at Penn the students seemed genuinely happy and like they had time to do things outside of lab. When I interviewed at Yale, the students seemed relatively happy but I've heard some discomfo
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
