  1. Hi all, Today I'd like to discuss a topic related to a thesis-based master program in molecular biology. Hopefully someone can discuss or give your inputs on this topic. Based on my past experience: I was in a research-based master program in XXX University for a year, and I withdrew from the program. I was deemed not qualified and lack of expertise to be in the master program by my supervisor during my first journal club presentation, after the first 4 months in the program. (It was my false because I didn't make an effort to understand in-depth the gist in the literature
  2. 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
  3. Hi everyone, I’m a PhD candidate for 2019 Fall. I received 2 offers, from Penn State (Hershey college of medicine), Biomedical Sciences, and University of Utah, Molecular Biology . I feel they have similar program settings (similar stipend, and both schools require about 5.5 years to graduate, 3 rotations, etc.) so I really can’t decide now 🤯. Can I get some suggestions from you guys? Thank you so much!
  4. Hi all, This is my first post on here as I am just getting acclimated to the application process. I was wondering for those who have applied and gotten accepted to either neuroscience or molecular biology PhD programs, what was your gpa, gre scores, and other stats when accepted? I feel I am more behind then other recent applicants when I talk to them so I wanted to know my admission chances based off of my stats. I have an associates in engineering science from SUNY Broome with a 2.7 gpa, I will be graduating this coming year with with a bachelors of science in biological sciences
  5. Hey guys, I'm a UK student looking to apply to grad school here in the US. I'm on track to get a 1st in BSc. Biology (Hons), I've seen this stated as equivalent to a 3.7-4.0 GPA, from a top 10 UK school. I also have 1 year of full-time research experience at a school in Chicago, and we are hoping to have a paper on which I would be second/third author out by the time I apply to schools. I was wondering where I could find a list of schools that are good in this field? All I've been able to find so far is a list of the top schools in molecular biology, which would all likely be reach s
  6. I am in need of some advice regarding my unique (as far as I can tell) situation. Basically, I am in the middle of a PhD program in Molecular and Cellular Biology, but would like to switch to Clinical Psychology. I have done some reading on Psy.D and PhD programs in Clinical Psych, and feel I would be much better suited for this field rather than my current one. Without getting too deep into personal matters, I essentially no longer find any joy in my current field of work, and I believe I would find much more meaning and fulfillment as a clinical psychologist or licensed therapist. I doubled

    Required Courses

    I'm an Ontario student going into my 3rd year in hopes of getting in a masters program in molecular biology or food science. This semester I am taking a biochemistry course. With this course there is also a complementary lab course offered that is not required in my program, however, most other programs in my department need to take it. I am unsure if I should take this course as it may be looked for during admissions, although if I didn't need to take it I could use this additional time to volunteer in one of my professor's lab to gain experience. I have looked into the admissions of these p
  8. At least a year back from now everything was going great in my Biology PhD program. Apart from the occasional feeling that I was not being able to work to my full potential, the quarterly reviews with my PhD committee members were “excellent”. My advisor was comparatively satisfied with my progress in research than with other members of the lab and that brought additional responsibilities. However, little did I know that a ‘B’ in a stats class was all that was required to send me back to my miseries, two years into my program. My advisor was relatively new and to my knowledge did all he could
  9. Hi guys, I am applying to PhD programs soon for the 2018 fall cycle (molecular biology/biological & biomedical sciences); I am wondering if any of you have insight as to which programs admit more international students than others. I am a fairly competitive applicant: 3.87 GPA from a top US public university, 1 year of undergrad research + 2 years of post bac research, a couple of papers (I was the primary author on one of them), honors thesis, strong letters of rec, GRE 166V 170Q 4.5AW, dean's list, etc. However, I am an international student and it seems like most US PhD programs in
  10. So... right now I am in a tier 2 UC and have a well off GPA (3.9) but I got accepted to a top UC which was my dream school. However I have super hard time deciding. I am second year right now but I am pretty sure I can graduate next year, meaning that I should apply this December, if I stay. I aim to do biochemistry and molecular focus program. Right now I am working in an immunology lab. My PI is not very famous but I am very close with him and I am pretty sure I can get a letter from him later. I also get a fellowship in my home institution and I will be doing some molecular bio/geneti
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Hey guys, has anyone heard back from University of Utah as yet? I see only a couple of responses on the results page. Also, I would like to know what the opinion of this school is within the US. I am an international, and a lot of the time have to gauge reputation by various rankings.

  15. Has anyone heard anything from BU's PhD program in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry?
  16. Has anyone heard anything back from Georgetown regarding admission into their Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Ph.D. program for fall 2016? The application deadline was December 1, and I have heard nothing back and my application status still says "submitted" on their webpage. I have a friend who said she was rejected without an interview last year right at the beginning of February with the same application deadline of December 1, and it is well past early February. No one on the results forum seems to have heard anything back either. Any interviews, rejections, or acceptances? Let me kno
  17. Hey all, Basically I am trying to gauge my potential for PhD studies in Cell and/or Molecular biology. I'm still narrowing down research topics. I would like to attend grad school in or right around NYC. This would include such schools as Columbia, NYU, Weill-Cornell, Rockefeller, SUNY Downstate, CUNY Graduate Center, Stony Brook University and several others. While I know my (weak) stats arn't likely to land me in the top schools in NYC, please give me some feedback and what my options may be and what I can do to improve my chances for any program. A buddy of mine recommended applying for
