  1. For my PhD, I am considering between Penn for Bioengineering and Yale for Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS). I have found professors at both schools with whom I would love to do research in and I got along well with the current graduate students at both schools. I feel very fortunate to have had such great experiences. I am very interested in taking my career after my PhD in the entrepreneurial or venture capital in the life sciences space. I am very interested in the life sciences because I would like to work on discovering molecules or developing diagnostics and drug delivery systems to improve the human condition. I would like to get opportunities throughout my PhD to get quite involved in the entrepreneurial/venture space. Is there a bias towards bioengineers or biologists in this space? Which school would have the better resources for what I am looking for? Are there specific resources that make either of these schools unique? I have been having a lot of difficulty in making a decision about where to go. Aside from stipend, location and fit, what other factors do people think about? At this point I feel that I am looking at very small factors to try and decide. I appreciate hearing your perspective
