  1. Undergrad Institution: No-name pharmacy school from SE-Asian country (Although top 3 in my country)Major(s): Pharmacy; Pharmaceutical SciencesMinor(s): NoneGPA in Major: 3.7Overall GPA: 3.7Position in Class: Top 5%Type of Student: InternationalGRE Scores (revised/old version):Q: 162V: 157W: 4.5B: TOEFL: 110 Research Experience: 1. Internship in neuropharmacology at my country's number one medical school. 2. Internship in formulation development at my country's number one pharmaceutical company (Among top 5 generic manufacturers in the world). 3. Internship in vaccine development at a research lab sponsored by two of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies of the world. 4. Student researcher for one year each under two different professors of pharmaceutics (Worked on drug delivery). 5. Student researcher for one year under my professor of pharmacology. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Some awards in pharma-related competitions. Nothing extraordinary.Pertinent Activities or Jobs: None Publications: Have three review articles, out of which two have been published in international, peer-reviewed journals (Elsevier). Have two research papers (International, Peer-reviewed). Co-authoring a book on drug delivery by Elsevier.Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: Have done over 2 years of volunteering at a Nobel Peace Prize winning organization. Have helped in the rescue of over 230 children who were victims of trafficking, bonded labor, and slavery. Handled over 180 volunteers (which in turn, handled an audience of over 10,000 schoolchildren) for a very very large scale event.Special Bonus Points: I have a lot of enthusiasm/charisma in person and interview fairly well. Undergraduate research is not common in my country (in my field). One of the first students in my university to do it. All recommendation letters would be pretty good as far as I know. Applying to Where: University of Wisconsin Madison - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Michigan Ann Arbor - PhD (Department of Pharmacoengineering and Molecular Pharmaceutics) UNC Chapel Hill - PhD Pharmaceutics University of Southern California - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences Purdue University - PhD Industrial & Physical Pharmacy University of Florida - PhD Pharmaceutics University of Minnesota Twin Cities - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences Rutger's University - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Illinois at Chicago - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Buffalo SUNY - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Cincinnati - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences ----- Since not many students from my field apply to the US, so I have absolutely no clue where I stand. I have a couple of questions: 1. How would you rate my chances at these universities? 2. I am a little confused if I should apply for pharmacology programs as well (and reduce the number of PharmSci programs I apply to), how would I stand for PhD Pharmacology programs at universities like Harvard, Stanford, Cornell, Yale, Brown, Duke, Johns Hopkins, etc.?
  2. 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.
  3. I'm trying to finish up my application for Columbia's CSD program and do not know how to format my optional essay. I know I need to discuss my GRE scores (below par) but focus on how my GPA is great and I have a lot of volunteer/work/professional experiences. Should this be a blunt statement? Or should it be put in a nicer way like every other personal statement? Applying to: Columbia, UVA, UNC, Vanderbilt, Pitt, BU, MGH, Kean, NYU
  4. Out of curiosity, how many of you are worried about your career in the sciences in this political climate, because it's been bothering me a lot. Do you have faith that things will turn out alright? How are you coping and does it really affect you? I've personally applied to one Canadian school in addition to US schools, and because I'm more in environment-related sciences, I'm having fears and doubts about whether or not I should just go to the Canadian school instead. Honestly, the state of science in the US is worrying me more than my pending applications right now.
  5. Hi,So I apply in February for a Master in Community and Population Health Science in the University of Saskatchewan, they acknowledge the reception of my documents and under my application profile I have the status of "Complete Ready for Review".I already checked it online on the webpage of the University and I was unable to find a date when I should expect a response (either positive of negative) so I decided to contact the office for an advise and they just confirmed that my documents were in order, but were unable to provide me a date, should I insist, wait, cry, continue eating my nails?
  6. i was wondering what anyone has heard about these two programs as i am trying to decide between the two of them--anyone that can share personal experiences or knows about them? anybody that has been accepted to either program- are you attending?
  7. Could anyone tell me about Engineering sciences and mechanics dept of Pennsylvania state university ? I would like someone to review or post first hand experiences about the dept and the research work done there , the funding oppurtunities for fall 2012.
