Penn State (Hershey College of Medicine) Biomedical Sciences or U of Utah Molecular Biology?


Recommended Posts

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!

I really don't know about these schools, but I'll suggest you consider the research area that interests you the most. Also, you could talk to alumni.

Anyway, congratulations on your acceptance. I'll be applying for molecular biology and biotechnology PhD program fall 2020. I have 6 months research internship + undergrad project that is unrelated GRE: Verbal 154, Quanta 159, AWA 4.0 Could you help suggest schools that I could apply to

Also, I have conflicting interests and this has been a helluva problem for me for my statement of purpose. How do I demonstrate this in my essay. Also, since my undergraduate project is unrelated (because I didn't have the franchise to choose, rather, my supervisor distributed topics to those of us in his team), will it impact my chances? 

And lastly, could you help with your SOP?
