  2. Hopefully the cohort isn’t so small that none of you are on this site. Let’s get a thread going for BU Pharmacology PhD students entering in the Fall of 2020. Who’s pumped???
  3. Hello! I have recently been invited for Interview Day at UCI for the PhD program in Pharmacology. Does anyone know anything about the interview process (eg. what goes down, what kinds of things are asked, what to/not to do, number of invitees vs number of admits, etc). Any information would be greatly appreciated!

  5. Hi all, I'm a recent graduate from a top liberal arts school who is interested in pursuing graduate study for neuroscience/pharmacology in Canada, and I am also looking to eventually relocate here permanently. I found a few programs and professors whose research areas fit my interests, skills, and experience extremely well. Although the websites claim that international students are guaranteed a certain stipend, considering that most grant agencies place restrictions on use of funds for non-citizens or non-permanent residents, it makes me skeptical that I would be able to get in on
  6. 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!
  7. Hello everyone. I am starting to look into schools for pharmacology to apply for the Fall 2018 cycle I'm still a little uncertain on whether I should directly apply for PhD or complete my masters first. Any suggestions? Majors: Biology and Chemistry Overall GPA: 3.91 Major GPA in biology: 3.96 Major GPA in chemistry: 3.93 Position in class: top 5% Type of Student: International GRE: Will be taking it by the end of summer Research Experience: 3 years of research experience on natural products. No publications but presented the researches at couple of sy
  8. Hey there, I'm a chemistry major (biochem concentration) at a top 5 public school (in the US) about to enter my last year in Fall 2017. I am on track to finish my degree in 3 years, however my GPA due to heavy course loads is about 3.5 (3.58 if all goes well next fall semester). Practice GRE tests put me in the 95 percentile range, but I haven't taken a chem GRE test yet. I have over a year and a half of research experience in two different labs, both relating to pharmacology and bio-organic chemistry, but unfortunately no publications. I am looking at programs in medicinal ch
  9. I was recently accepted into the pharmacology PhD programs at Boston University and Johns Hopkins University. I have until April 15th to decide for both. I am currently studying neuroscience at Duke, and I am interested in going into industry (Pfizer/Biogen/Merc/Novartis) after grad school to work as a pharmaceutical neuroscientist in drug development/discovery for neurodegenerative diseases. Here's some background: I did a summer research program at Boston University last year and fell in love with the campus, environment, PIs and students. My brother has lived in Boston for the p
  10. I'm a third year undergrad, and I just started exploring graduate programs. I was toying with the idea of taking a year to work in industry, but I can't find anything on how that works (if you apply and defer, or if you just apply a year later), and I've heard conflicting opinions on gap years (some people in career advising say that the longer you're out of school, the worse your chances in STEM fields). I'm also at the point where I want to ask professors I'm interested in working with if they have vacancies, but I don't know if it's too soon, and if it's recommended or at all helpful, espec
  11. I just wanted to say I've been following grad cafe for a while and the comments have been so useful to me throughout my applications. Thank you all so much! I am in a very unique spot with my top program. I am currently enrolled in as a master's student and will be completing my master's degree next semester. I've applied to my school's pharm sci PhD program and had a Skype interview with a few professors I would like to conduct research with last Monday. One of the courses I am tentatively enrolling in is for a course taught by one of the professors I interviewed with. However, I do not
  12. Hey everyone, I'm having a little dilemma about whether to enroll in a PhD program or not. In some ways I believe I must and in other ways I am wondering if I really need to do it. It's just such a long road that I don't want to waste time on if I don't need to. So here is my background: I have a BS in chemistry from a very good public US university. I performed undergraduate research there for about 1.5 years but didn't really accomplish anything significant (was just to get exposed). After my junior year, I did a summer research fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering
  13. Hi all! New user here. I plan to apply to Ph.D. programs in molecular pharmacology within the next few weeks, and was wondering if anyone would be able to take a look at my statement of purpose and offer some feedback/critique. I'd rather not post it in public, but just PM me and I'd be happy to send it to you. Thanks in advance!
  14. Hi Everyone, So I'm currently finishing up my masters degree in neuroscience at a small to medium sized institution in Ontario. I will be applying to my PhD in pharmacy at Waterloo and neuroscience as well as pharmacology McGill in October for January admission. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on some questions I have. Do you think it's better to do a PhD at Waterloo (which has a generally new program (2013) with a PI who is still somewhat new and seems pretty lax) or McGill (which is arguably the best university in Canada with a PI who is well established,
  15. Hi everyone! I applied to 10 PhD programs in Neuroscience for admission in Fall 2016. I have yet to hear from two schools, but they have had their interview weekends, so I have accepted the fact that I have been rejected from all of them. I definitely aimed too high, but I'm not sure where else to apply. I want to do research in neurodegenerative diseases and I've found that lower tier schools do not have labs with this research. I have four years of research experience in behavioral neuroscience (addiction and fear learning) with three publications and more to come. So, here are th
  16. First some background info about me... I was an undergrad bio major who was planning on going to grad school for education to become a bio teacher. The fall semester my senior year however I took a pharmacology course and loved it. After talking to the professor I decided to pursue pharmacology at the graduate level. I got an internship at a pharma company over winter break, did research the following semester and then took the gre during the summer. I recently applied for fall 2012 admissions and have my first interview at Drexel Medical College for their pharm/phys program in February. M
