  1. Hi! I know its early. But considering the success of Fall 2017 forum, I thought we should start Fall 2018 discussion thread early! Good luck preparing for your applications!

  3. Relative to the other Biosciences Programs, is it true that Genetics is the most / one of the more competitive programs in Biosciences?
  4. Hey all, I'm a Fall 2020 Genetics PhD applicant for the University of Cambridge. I've had a Skype interview with a POI 2 weeks ago, and I realized that my status on the portal changed from "under review by the Department" to "under review by the Degree Committee" just yesterday. Anyone know what this means? Thanks in advance!
  5. And so it begins, GC applicants for 2019! Welcome first time applicants, applicants who didn't get interviews, multiple cycle applicants, applicants who didn't matched, and basically everyone interested in genetic counseling. In such a competitive field I think there is no such thing as starting too early!
  6. Hi Folks, I just received my PHD offer from both CMU CPCB program and Cornell Computational Biology program in Ithaca and I really have a tough time deciding which school I should go. My past research majorly focusing on human genetic field and I would like to continue my research within this specific field. Both school have some professor that I would like to work with but it seems like each school have different focus. Really want to hear opinions about pros and cons about coming to these schools. Thanks for the time!!
  7. Hi! I've applied this past application cycle to PhD programs in or related to behavioral genetics. My most recent research job was a three-month gig in the middle of 2018 (I had a longer researcher job before that). I worked on a short freelancing project after that and now I ideally want to get some seasonal/project-based/temporary research work. While I may just end-up getting some random temp job in the intervening time, I think being in a research position will be advantageous if I get any interviews. But any of you who does what I do probably knows that people who do scientific research u
  8. Hey guys I thought it would be good to start a thread for people applying for genetic counseling school for Fall 2017. I am starting to prepare for the GRE and the supplemental materials of the application since I will be in the midst of finals when applications are due. I would love to talk to more people about genetic counseling school who are also applying or have applied previously. I am just now getting a list of programs that I want to apply to, which includes: Northwestern University, Emory University, University of South Carolina, Stanford University, CSU Stanislaus, Boston University,
  9. I graduated with a bachelor degree in business administration in 2006 (foreign country). We don't do GPA there, but my uGPA is probably around 3.0. I worked on the family business for a while, then moved to the U.S. (husband was transferred). I didn't work for a very long time, just published a few ebooks online (in my native language). I knew I wanted to go back to school for a long time, but (not worth explaining the whole situation here) my husband wouldn't let me. Fast forward 10 years I got a divorce and enrolled in a community college to start getting core science courses. I'm halfw
  10. Hello All, I need help with deciding what specialty of psychology I should pursue, and by getting others' experiences and perspectives on these specialties, I hope to be better equipped to make that decision. I need to have all my graduate school applications turned in by Dec 1, 2018 (next December). I am hoping to find a fully funded program preferably, but I know I can't put all my eggs in one basket. The specialties I am interested in are neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, experimental, clinical, social, and cognitive. I came into this thinking I wanted to be a clinical psychologis
  11. Hi everyone! I am an applicant for Genetic Counseling at the University of Pittsburgh. My application is officially being reviewed as of a few weeks/a month ago and I'm basically just playing the waiting game. A few stats about me: 26 years old, graduating with a BS in Biology April 2018, 3.34 GPA, 5 years pharmacy experience, GC shadowing experience, bereavement counseling volunteer, research experience, and personal GC experience. I only applied to UPitt -- kind of scary, but hoping for the best. Anyone else applying to GC programs for Fall 2018?
  12. Hey, guys! As a foreign student, I've never had the need to write anything like a statement of purpose. Well, now that I'm applying to Grad School, I just finished mine. I would like to know if there's anyone here willing to take a look at it and give a few comments on how it is. Thanks!
  13. Hi All, I hope I've posted this in the right place. I'm hoping that somebody will be able to provide me with a few more universities who conduct Molecular Ecology work, especially environmental DNA work. So far I've looked at Michigan Tech, Teledo CUNY Central Michigan Also on average how many PhDs programs should one apply for. Unlike the UK they all seem to have application fees as well?
  14. 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
  15. I'm currently planning to apply to graduate school this year, and I've realized that I am kind of lost about what kind of program I should apply to. If I wanted to eventually end up doing longevity research, what would be a good graduate program to enter? Should I go for a degree in Human Genetics? Biomed? Is one field easier to get into than the other, if I know my application won't be as competitive compared to others? Also, is a PhD necessary for biology-related fields? Is it okay to do a masters first to get a "taste" of the field, so to speak, before seeing if I want to commit to a PhD
  16. Hi guys, This is my first time posting on this forum. I'm a junior looking to apply to grad school this fall. I'm mostly interested in the intersection of computational biology and molecular biology, i.e. I'm not a big fan of benchwork, but I want to have some wet lab component in my future grad school research because I don't want to spend all my time sitting in front of computer. Currently I'm a biological sciences major, but I've taken stats, probability, linear algebra and multivariable calculus and three computer science classes (2 programming + 1 theory). I'm about to start a resea
  17. Hi guys, I am contemplating doing a PhD but I am very concerned about my profile. If you could please tell me if I have a shot at the top 20 colleges in the US and how to strengthen my profile.

  18. I'm doing a double major in Microbiology and Genetics and I have a 2.3 GPA. Even though my GPA is so low I want to go to grad school for Developmental & Reproductive Biology. I have had a lot of experience in research since I had multiple internships and jobs working at the veterinary school, zoos, genetics laboratories, etc. In addition, in all my laboratory courses I have passed with A's but in other courses like chemistry and math I have done poorly. I was wondering what are my real chances into getting into a school program even if I get a real high school in my GRE and have good recom
  19. I am interested in continuing my education in math and I know that I'd eventually like to work on brain-computer interface (theory and application) like mind uploading but was curious if there is a discipline that merges computational neuroscience, biostatistics, AI, and cybersecurity: providing a rigourous curriculum that can be used to pursue these fields. Any input would be greatly appreciated! This is ultimately to maximize my chances of being employed, having a successful career long term. If the opportunity exists, I would equally like to learn more about AI (neural net) and cyberse

    Human Genetics

    Anyone else applying to the MSc Human Genetics program at Sarah Lawrence College? Any Canadians?
  21. I took the revised GRE in August and recently received my scores. My verbal score was pretty high (96th percentile, 690 under the old grading scale, and 165 under the new grading scale). Unfortunately, my quantitative score was sub-par (53rd percentile, 630/150). My A.W. score was also low (4.0). I'm worried that my low quant score will make my application less appealing to the admissions councils for PhD programs in genetics. I know that it also depends on the individual schools and the rest of my application, but I'm just worried that my quant score is so far below the average for those i
  22. Hi everyone! I am an international student and intend to pursue PhD in genetics (preferably cancer genetics). Can anyone suggest good schools in this field. My GRE score: verbal: 640, Quant: 690, AW: 4.0. My TOEFL ibt score is 116/120. I hold an MSc degree in Genetics which is equivalent to a BS degree in the US. I had graduated top of my class. Have teaching experience of 6+ years. Finished a one yr. research project, working on another one right now but the topic is different from my intended PhD research topic. No publications yet Applied for Fulbright, made it to the intervie
